The Top Dog at WSR?

Newest Contender for Top Dog

Our dog team has grown in numbers! Specifically from one to two (some days we even have THREE). But our new official number two is this keen girl. When she's awake and not trying to snuggle behind you on your chair, she is ready for action! And that action is laying in wait to steal Charlie's toys. Also trying to get biscuits before Charlie. I present to you:

Kiki Weldon
Owned by the Inventory Team, but does little work with inventory as she is unable to count. Or stay awake for longer than an hour. Which is required here at WSR. The staying awake bit...some of us have questionable counting skills...

Job Title: Office Dog Assistant (assistant to the real top dog, Charlie Weldon)
Details of Job: Getting my beauty rest 20 hours of the day. The other four hours are spent working hard for those biscuits from the UPS and FedEx guys!
Favorite part of working at WSR?: Getting more attention than Charlie. Because I'm cuter! (Note from management: Umm, we do not discriminate based on looks. You both are cute and do equally little amount of work.)
What are the benefits of working for a smaller company?: Very family oriented! Which means no one judges me for snoring! (A kindness we do not bestow on the human members of the team.)
What is a common mistake you see that would make life easier if corrected?: ONLY GIVING TREATS TO CHARLIE. I may be little, but I'm here too, ya know.
Favorite local food?: Taste of the Wild Dog Food. I pride myself on being a bit of a foodie. The best is when Mom and Dad put gravy in my food! (Social Media Manager: Yes. I do appreciate gravy on all my food too.)
Favorite thing to do on the weekend?: My favorite thing to do on the weekend is to get even MORE beauty rest. And go for car rides. (SMM: Same.)
Favorite caffeinated beverage?: Just water for me please.
How do you take your coffee?: I don't - but I will take biscuit and a snuggle! (SMM: Same.)

 So while I hope your week at work is going well, it's probably not as snuggly and biscuit oriented at Kiki's week is going. For that, I am sure, we are all sorry.

Stay warm, stay caffeinated,

A Weldon Welcome to Our New Employee

We'd like to take a moment and say welcome to our newest employee here at Weldon Service and Repair. The company has had a lot of growth lately and we're excited to have Robert Hinett as a part of our team to help us out! I asked him a lot of the same questions I used for our past employee profiles, so take a gander and get to know Rob.

Rob Hinett

Job Title: Inventory Assistant 

You've been an employee for a little of over a week now, so what has surprised you about working at WSR? I've been really impressed with the amount of productivity in the office and the efficiency of my office mates. (Social Media Manager gives side eye to the office dogs. "Make a good impression y'all.")

Benefits of working for a small company?: The nicest part of working here is the office is full of family (read about the families at WSR: Amy and Brad, the webcrew, inventory manager, and owners), friendly coworkers, and morale boosting dogs. (More on that plural "dogs" tomorrow!) 

In past jobs or this one, what is a common mistake that would make things easier if corrected?: A common mistake that myself and others commit is making assumptions in communication.

What local food (or restaurant) in WNY would you recommend to an out-of-towner?: I would recommend any and everybody in the Rochester area to try Johns Tex Mex and order the burrito that is larger than ones head. (Um, yes I'll have that. Sold.)

What is your favorite activity to do on weekends?: On the weekends I enjoy going to the movies and playing golf when possible.

What is your favorite caffeinated beverage?: Cappuccino

How do you take your coffee?: With a splash of cream.

We're excited to have Rob on the inventory team now that our area coverage has grown and we're taking on more and more customers. If you stop in the offices at WSR any time soon, make sure to tell Rob "hello!"

Welcome to the family Rob,
