At Warners’ Stellian, one of our core values is family, and each new employee becomes a member of our family. In our Spotlight Series, we plan to share a deeper look into the talent that contributes to our success each day. This week, let’s meet Sales Associate Tanya Williams.
Describe your typical workday.
Every day is different, but normally the day stats with merchandising my area of the store. From there, I spend my time working with clients, putting together bids for future builder projects or following up on delivered orders.
What has surprised you most about working at Warners’ Stellian?
After working in other retail positions, which typically see high turnover, I was surprised to see how many people had been with the company for many years. It is definitely a testament to the positive work environment.
Can you offer advice for people considering a career in sales?
Sometimes a life on the sales floor can be fast-paced, while other times it remains slow. You need to embrace both and use your time downtime effectively. Downtime provides a great opportunity to pick up the phone and follow up with your customers.
Before going appliance shopping, what should customers know?
Measure your space, and take pictures of the existing appliance. Seeing pictures helps your salesperson answer questions and foresee issues when it comes to fitting your new appliances in the existing space.
What is on your appliance wish list?
I would love to own a combi-steam oven. It allows for faster cooking and better nutrient retention in your food. Plus, food just tastes better!
How do you spend your free time?
I enjoy traveling, going to the theater or exploring historical sites and museums.
