Meet Harriet, she recently joined our Orms Cape Town store and she’s now officially your first point of call!

If you’ve recently called our Cape Town store, chances are that you’ve spoken to Harriet.  So, in order to put a face to the name, we decided to ask Harriet a few questions in this week’s staff interview.

Harriet please tell us a little about yourself?

Well, I’m a fun loving type of person. I’m very close to my family and like spending time with them. I’m also easy to get along with, I usually try to help where I can.

You joined the Orms Cape Town store just a few months ago.  What were you doing before and why make the move?

I actually worked at Orms Bellville, I was in the repair department. I liked it there, but I also wanted to grow within the company and so, when the position opened up here at the Cape Town store I decided to make the move.

Tell us a little bit about what you do and what makes your role so important?

At the moment I’m the receptionist at Orms Cape Town. I’m the first line of duty when clients call, my job is to assist everyone as quickly and efficiently as possible.

If you didn’t work here at Orms, what else would you have liked to do?

I originally wanted to be an air hostess, I just always liked the idea of travelling. Many years ago I did apply, but at the time you had to be a certain height and they told me I was too short! Apparently that did change later on.

What would you like your fellow employees to know about you?

That’s I’m friendly, helpful and talkative.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Always be honest with everyone.

What can’t you do without?

The barista’s cappuccino at Orms!

And finally, what if you were given the opportunity to do something, what would that be?

To perform with an artist, I really like music.
