Congratulations, Ernie, on this significant milestone!

Here are a few questions we thought would be fun to ask Ernie:

Q: What is one of your funniest work memories?
A: Back when I worked in retail, a customer once called asking for Pampas Grass. I remember telling her that we had it in stock and that it came in both 1-gallon and 3-gallon sizes. But then she surprised me by saying she didn’t realize it came in a liquid form.

Q: What has changed the most since working here?
A: Progression, I remember when we got our first fax machine!

Q: What are you most proud of at work?
A: I have a team that I am incredibly proud of. They are a diligent and dedicated group who always put in their best effort. I cannot express enough gratitude for their hard work and commitment.

Q: What advice would you give a new employee?
A: Be a sponge; learn as much as possible to benefit you here and beyond.


Thank you for everything you do Ernie!
