How did you come to work at Cashman?
I began at Cashman as a temp when I was 19. The temp agency gave me two choices of employers and I happened to pick Cashman, even though I didn’t really know anything about them!

Working as a receptionist for Cashman was my first official job anywhere, ever. Everyone was so friendly! I spent four years as a receptionist in Henderson. I was thinking about moving into another position for a bit, but nothing really stood out for me until the parts counter cashier position opened up. It seemed just right – I could learn more about our business but could still interact with customers a lot. I spent two years there, then was promoted to parts inventory coordinator for three years, then to back order expeditor. My experience there in the parts department was really great preparation to move into the product support department, where I am now an ISR (an inside sales representative for product support).
I learned a lot about our business on the job. Jason Hudson trained me (when he was on the parts counter, before he became a product support rep), and I also paid attention to what was going on around me. I feel like every position I’ve had has prepared me for the next position. The transition from receptionist to the parts counter really went well, because I already knew a lot of our customers through phone conversations.
There isn’t anything in particular, but Cashman has been a major part of my life.
I think the company has definitely changed for the better while I’ve been here. The Wellness Program in particular is one thing I’ve noticed. Our well-being is more of a priority now. I really shows that MaryKaye and the company care about us outside of work as well as here. I think every company has its ups and downs, but I’ve seen mostly ups.
I love the people here. There’s a family type atmosphere. Also, I learn a lot personally and professionally. No matter what department I’ve worked in, everyone has a lot to offer. MaryKaye cares about the people here. Family is something that is really important to me personally, so it matters a lot to me that I work for someone who genuinely cares about the employees.
