SET Mentoring Success

Dominion in Grand Falls – Windsor Regarding Liam

“Liam is an awesome worker. He is never late; his uniform is always immaculate. He is always eager, whether stocking shelves, stocking groceries, paging on the intercom, helping with groceries. He puts his all into every task. He is not only a hard worker; he is an ideal work mate. He meets everyone with a smile. It’s is not just a colleague who looks forward to having Liam in the store, customers are always happy to see him. His excitement about his job and willingness to assist is noticed and appreciated by all. It is hard to convey how much value exactly he adds to our store, but I will sum it up and say he is awesome and we feel very lucky to him as part of our team at Dominion.”
