No Stopping Now

It's been a really easy day so far where we actually got a lot of cancelations and thankfully got a few people in to fill those slots. It has just been one of those go and move days. I am glad to be in the front, but it still feels really new and intimating but I know I can do it. A slow starter but once I go, I go. Hopefully we get more of nice calm days and continue to work effectively and efficiently

A Good Day

I love today apart from doing good work we also got donuts from a woman on Tuesday then another box of donuts from a shop volunteer. We are spoiled from all these kind people and is a nice treat for those able to have one. We have been really busy, but like everyday it is a new start and hopefully we catch up. To a sweet day and have a good Wednesday all

Things are Moving

Today is one of those where I had to rest so I came later and wow did we get things going. It was not a typical morning I can tell you that we had one less staff but it was a learning experience if anything. I am glad I came in at noon feeling a lot better and ready for action, but did feel bad I didn't come in. I know I got to take care of myself, but the workaholic in me just wants to work not rest. I knew the rest would do me good and glad to be at my 100 percent again to get things done. We had a slow week, but now we are getting back into the groove of things. Now to just keep this good vibe going

Never a Dull Day

I have to say it still amazes me how go in the moment type of place the Lift Garage is. Where we just roll with whatever happens or what we are given and it leaves me thankful really. Glad I got the chance to come work here and optimistic of the great future the Lift has. One day at a time is something I really started to value since the Lift, because really we can only go and move as time does. Also glad that my voice isn't too bad where I can talk, but will rest up to come back tomorrow as healthy as I can.  Until the next time

Time Flies

I feel this week has been non stop the days do go by faster, but we do have bigger jobs. I have been learning more about cars which is helpful of knowing parts and models. I still have a lot to learn, but I am trying at least. I love that I get to work on something I have no prior knowledge and get to learn on the spot. Plus having co-workers who help explain things I have no clue about really helps me out to better help customers. I am only human and have my limits so being a team here is the best. Very proud and fortunate to have such great people to support me and our customers. To better tomorrows

Bon voyage

Today was the first day without Sonia and me really taking over in the front which is helpful when I'm working with training volunteers. Although it is now a balancing act of my job here which I will get better at but still need practice. I like that I get to interact more with customers and meet them in person. I am excited to see what else I can accomplish even with my time cut in half so to speak. To the new and unknown :)

Busy Times

The last few days here have been busy to say the least I have pushed some of my work back to start being able to go in the front to do intake, make calls and interact with the customers. I have to say it has definitely been fun to meet some customers and see our service helping through the inspection. I have noticed the different people and their stories pull at your heartstrings, but we have to be objective to serve everyone equaly and fairly. To do everything in our power to repair the car, but also be honest about the fact and overall safety of the car for individuals. Just been very eye opening to our impact and the people we get to know at The Lift
