Hi Roberta! We're excited to learn more about you, what is your role at Harris?
I am the Branch Manager for the A.H. Harris Plainville MA, location.
What lead you to a career with Harris?
After the purchase of the Forming and Shoring from Barker Steel, I was offered a position of Rental admin for our Northern New England area.
What was your first job ever?
My first job was at a retail store called 'the Fair' at their customer service desk. From there I went to Somerville Lumber as a Customer Service Manager at their distribution center. From there, I went on to work for Barker Steel.
Describe Harris in three words:
People , Pride, Team Work.
What is your biggest accomplishment at Harris so far?
Well, I have two. Taking on the role of Branch Manager for Plainville and having our location winning the title of "Sales Leader of the Year" in 2015. I owe that win to my team, without them it could not have been accomplished.
What is something working at Harris has taught you?
That there is such a thing as Team - In the past I have worked for companies that did not recognize that it takes a team effort to be successful. I am blessed for the team I have in Plainville.
So far, what has been your favorite memory at Harris?
The welcome I received when I was the new person, the support and encouragement I received and the feeling I was part of the team.
How nice! Thanks for your time, Roberta.
