She enjoys the work/life balance that her job affords her and has a passion for building relationships with her customers. Read more about Catherine’s career with GetGo.
How did you come to work for GetGo?
Catherine, GetGo Crew Lead
I started with GetGo when I was 17 years old in 2003 while I was in high school and stayed with GetGo the entire time while I went to college. I got my trade license in Cosmetology and GetGo offered me a full-time position when I was 22. The full-time position came with great health benefits and I decided to take it. I stayed here and quit doing hair on the side. I’ve been here ever since. I’ve always worked in the Lawrenceville location because it’s close to home.
What made you think of GetGo as a possible place of employment?
It was close to home and very convenient to get to. This was one of the first GetGo locations in the area. The career path has been great. I have opportunities to progress, but right now I do work another job, and GetGo is very flexible and allows me to coordinate both jobs so I can make it work. I’m comfortable in this role and I have time invested in GetGo. GetGo is willing to work with me. My boyfriend also has a four-year-old, so right now I have the work/life balance that I need. A lot of the GetGo leaders are very understanding and are flexible with our schedules.
What was the moment you knew you’d made the right decision to work here?
I have regular customers that come in and know that I’ve been here for a long time. The customers appreciate that I’m here for them. They talk to me and I’ve built some great relationships with our customers. I’ve seen kids grow up in the time that I’ve been with GetGo. I see people now that were coming in here when they were in grade school and they’re coming in now as adults. Now their kids come in and it blows my mind. It’s nice to watch it all come full circle.
What was your best day at work?
There was a day when my fellow Team Member and friend got promoted and afterwards, he told me that he credited me for his promotion, which felt good. It was great to see him succeeding, and I’m really happy for him. I think the best feeling is seeing Team Members that I’ve trained grow in their own careers with GetGo. It’s a great feeling and makes it all worth it.
