3.    What is your role and what does a typical day in your role look like?
My role is gift shop sales clerk. I can’t say any day is typical as the clients are all so diverse.  It’s very enjoyable to help them select pieces to remind them of their visit to Sparkling Hill or assist them with purchases of swim wear or other clothing selections. Sometimes its just listening to their stories.  Other duties are to help in the organizing and cleanliness of the gift shop.  Overall try my best to make the customers stay enjoyable, and contribute to the functions of the gift shop.

The most satisfying part is Cheryl makes it easy to feel like I’m part of a team. I enjoy receiving new items and Contributing to the displays.  It’s so nice to see how happy the customers are when they purchase and item that will remind them of their stay at the resort.

5.    What is something special that you have done to “wow” a guest/ make a guest’s day?
The lady that was really stuck in an unfortunate spot with no dress for the gala I lent her a dress as she was pretty much the same size as me.  She was a little hesitant as she wasn’t sure what it would look like, I assured her she would look like a Hollywood movie star.  When she got it she was thrilled and really looked and felt amazing. She wanted to pay me for it, but I just told her to pay it forward sometime to another person who would need help.
