The paint store that I worked at for over 5 years was closing its doors. I was given the opportunity to transfer to another store in Charlottetown. This meant I would have to travel 40 minutes both ways from my home. My children were young at the time so I decided to take a chance and dropped my resume off at the Kent Building Supplies in Montague. The manager said that they were not currently hiring at that time. But after seeing the experience I had in retail including years of selling paint she decided to give me a chance. 5 years after starting with Kent I was promoted to Assistant Manager. 4 years after that promotion, I was once again promoted... this time to Store Manager.
What I enjoy most about working at Kent is the people I work with and the customers. I love that I have the privilege of working in a town that is close to where I grew up. Kent as a company has many career paths and growth opportunities for their associates. The company is willing to invest in their people through great training programs.
