Here at MCO Orlando, we want the individuals we hire to work hard, be willing to learn, and be goal driven. Often times, people think a college degree is necessary to be successful, but that’s not always true. Working your way up from the top with determination is what we pride ourselves in here at MCO Orlando. This week, I had the honor of speaking to Patience, a sales Leader, about her life and things that lead her to become part of the MCO Orlando family.

Here’s our interview:

Where are you from?

            I was born in Columbia, South Carolina and lived in New Hampshire for 13 years.

 

Where did you work before this?

            A retail store called Winsdor.

 

How was it different from MCO Orlando?

          Working in retail, I was an assistant manager so I was training people and creating schedules instead of selling products. The environment was different, so I couldn’t create a personal relationship there like I can here. I hang out with my employees here. A nice benefit is I get to go outside and be active.

 

 How long did it take you to get promoted?

          It took me 3 weeks to be promoted to leadership!

 

Favorite thing about working here?

         The family environment: it’s social and encouraging! I also like the money haha.
