Bud’s Warehouse is hosting an intern for the month of May. Here are his reflections after one day at the warehouse:
Leaving Oregon to intern at Bud’s was definitely a leap of faith. All I knew was that they ran a warehouse and did job training for people in transitional living situations. I don’t know why but in my mind I pictured a grungy location, tight working quarters, and a business barely staying afloat. Instead I have been pleasantly surprised by not only the quality of the store itself, but also at the professional and friendly disposition of the staff.
The biggest surprise of all has been the sheer volume of different products ranging from a hobbit sized washer dryer set to mountains of cabinet doors. It’s been a great place to learn about how a well run business can deeply impact the lives of its employees and the community.
