Haney Home Hardware is one of nine businesses participating in the Canada Summer Jobs program in Pitt Meadows – Maple Ridge. This summer they have three students working at Haney Home Hardware, one of which MP Ruimy had the opportunity to meet.
Mariann is a university student working towards her teaching degree with the goal of becoming a second grade teacher. This summer she is a cashier at Haney Home Hardware and is also responsible for tasks such as stocking shelves, keeping the front of the store organized and helping customers. When asked what skills she is learning that she can bring forward to her future career, Mariann explained how she has been able to work on her communication skills. With this she is learning what it is like to have responsibilities, organizational skills, and how to effectively provide customer service to all people who shop at Haney Home Hardware. Mariann explained the importance of learning how to properly communicate and how it will be an asset to her future teaching career.
Thank you for the visit Mariann and good luck with the rest of your summer!
