Q: How does Patrice feel about being an essential worker during COVID-19?
Patrice: I have been blessed to still have a job during this pandemic. It is a blessing to come into work each day and feel safe and secure with my job. Of course the pandemic has slowed down my workload some, but not by much. My job closed their doors to the public for a month or so and only provided services through the drive-thru and weekday delivery runs. Our customers have been so nice and patient with us. We make sure that we are understanding, patient and reliable to our customers during this time. They know that we are dedicated to keeping them healthy while we are doing everything that we can the best way we know how.
Being surrounded by a great team and having a great company you are employed with during this time is so needed. We wear mask daily and are very open and honest about our whereabouts and wellness. I come into work safe and healthy and I get to go home to my babies that way as well.
