Role at Kieffer | Starlite: Client Service Manager
What is a typical day for you at Kieffer | Starlite? I would say in the sign industry no day is ever the same. You have to really be on your toes for any issue that might arise throughout the day. The main goal is to really show your clients that you value them and you are willing to go over and beyond to make sure their needs are met.
What do you enjoy most about Kieffer | Starlite? I love working for a company where their employees are not just a number. It’s nice to be able to come to your management with changes you might think would benefit the company and they actually listen. Also, then even implement those changes as well. I came from a larger corporate job before arriving here and I just felt like a number. At Kieffer | Starlite I really feel valued as an employee.
What do you find most challenging about your job? I would say the most challenging part of the job is sometimes not being able to control certain aspects of the job. For example, the weather. If it rains or snows, it can impact your installation schedule. In this industry there will be variables that you just have no control of that can impact your overall performance at times.
What do you enjoy in your spare time? Love to play sports. I play in a few recreational leagues. (Softball, beach volleyball, indoor volleyball, dodgeball, and kickball)
