What is the best thing about RDI for you?
The best thing about RDI to me are the opportunities for learning because the mutual benefit RDI has by investing in me.
What has surprised you at RDI?
I like that everybody in the company is accessible directly. Whether it’s your Branch Manager or the President, you can contact them directly rather than having to go through channels to reach someone.
What is your favorite thing about your role?
My favorite thing about my role is the ever-changing responsibilities and tasks. I like the challenge of working on multiple projects because it keeps things fresh and I never feel like I’m stuck in repetition.
What is your favorite work location? Why?
Definitely the office because I’ve made friends out of my colleagues here. We help each other solve problems as well as talk about our interests outside of work.
If you took a year off, what would you do?
Snowboard, make beer, and travel through Western Europe.
