And we’re back with another one of our P1-ders in honor of Administrative Professionals Day. This time the “5 Questions with…” series continues with Dawn Amaro, service coordinator in Memphis, Tennessee. As a service coordinator, Dawn oversees scheduling service appointments for the techs in Memphis (among many other things) and does a great job promoting an awesome culture. If you want someone who celebrates PB&J Day, Popcorn Day or just finds ways to make a team feel valued, Dawn is your woman! Here is what Dawn had to say about P1:
1. What is your favorite part about Protection 1?
My favorite part is being part of the P1 TEAM and the opportunity to serve our community by providing the best home security with awesome service!
2. What advice do you have for anyone thinking about applying for a career at Protection 1?
GO FOR IT! This company has so much to offer their employees! It’s a large corporation with a “mom and pop” feel. The absolute best of both worlds!
3. What makes the culture at the Memphis branch stand out?
Our people! We work hard and we play hard. We take the time to have some fun and enjoy the little things with the team when we can. It’s made our team stronger.
4. What is one thing that most people don’t know about you?
That I’m secretly a Ninja 🙂 Nahhh… one thing most people don’t know is that I’m an Irish twin. For those who don’t know what that is, I have a sister that was born less than a year after me, so we are the same age for 2 weeks and 2 days each year.
5. What is your favorite sports team to cheer for?
College is THE University of Mississippi – yep that’s right….. I’m an Ole Miss Rebel die-hard, good and bad, love ‘em / hate ‘em, Oh-my-goodness- I’m-going-to-have-a-heart-attack FANATIC! As for the NFL – I’m part of the SteelerNation!!
In following with tradition today (Administrative Professionals Day), I asked Memphis General Manager Steve Wall what he wanted to tell us about Dawn. Here’s what he said:
“I enjoy Dawn’s “can do” attitude. Dawn can be in the middle of scheduling installs or service requests, but if I need some information she helps me right away. I enjoy her enthusiasm and smiling face in our office. Dawn is smart, has a very good sense of humor, and she very much enjoys being a part of the cultural change within the Memphis branch. Dawn enjoys having a fun environment to work in and I am sure by now everyone has seen our branch pics to help share some of our team and culture.”
Thanks for sharing, Steve, and thanks for all that you do, Dawn! Check out interviews with other members of our admin team here.
