Makiala Yates – San Ramon, CA
After eight weeks of training, we are all in-role! It was a busy week for all of us, with groups of us moving all over the country and working on getting settled in our new homes. We now have people in California, Ohio, Arkansas, Illinois, and New York. We are all excited to have such great places to visit each other.
My placement is in San Ramon, California as a Sales Analyst. Moving to California from Pittsburgh has been nothing but exciting for me. San Ramon is only a 30-40 minute drive from downtown San Francisco, and there’s no shortage of things to do in the Bay Area. From hiking to sightseeing, I will definitely be busy trying to fit everything in.
Most of my first week at work was spent learning how to run the reports that will help our team in the field. I’ve been working with reports to help track our shipments, consumption, and promotions. Each report is different, but useful in its own way.
Even though our office in San Ramon is small, everyone has been so welcoming and willing to help us learn. We have been lucky enough to get to talk with people from various functions and with different skill sets.
Overall, I am looking forward to growing more comfortable in my role and to start delivering results for the company. I can’t wait for the next eight weeks and beyond!
