A sincere thank you to Donna for taking the time to answer our questions! She's a great addition to our team, performing many tasks and contributing to the family atmosphere we cultivate. She's become our friend and we are excited to introduce her to you.
What was your first impression of Douglas Equipment and its employees?
Everyone here was so nice and welcoming! It’s really a great place to work with a great work environment.
When and how did you begin working with us?
I started on January 8th, 2020 in the accounting department here. I really like the people I work with. They are really an awesome group of people.
When I think of accounting, I think of math. But I know that's not all that's involved. How would you describe your job and responsibilities?
Well it is a lot of math but that’s not all of it. I help customers with the questions that they have about their accounts. I enter invoices from vendors into our Sage system. Also, I do freight bills and check to make sure that the quotes and the bills match. If they don’t match, I have to email those to each department so they can adjust their sales reports.
I also have to verify bonuses for each department each month to make sure all that is on their sales reports have been paid and that the profits are correct. I enter credit card charges into Sage so that Michael (head of accounting) can reconcile the credit cards. I call in credit card payments to vendors. I do sales taxes for 43 states every month. And any other thing I may be asked to do throughout the course of a day.
What is your favorite part of the job?
The people I work with. The people here in accounting are a great bunch to work with and make working here a joy.
I know that many of us at Douglas Equipment have pets. Do you have any? If so, what kind and what are their names?
Yes, I have two dogs and a few cats. My dogs are Rocky and Sturgis. Rocky is a Siberian Husky and Sturgis is a Rottweiler. They both are just big ole babies and we love them very much.
Do you like to cook or are there any specific dishes you'd like to make?
I do like to cook. I like cooking a little bit of everything. My husband likes my homemade spaghetti and homemade pizza. Also comfort foods like chili beans and chicken and dumplings.
We have many restaurants close to our W.V. office. Which is your go-to?
I like Portabella’s. They have a wide variety of food to pick from.
What food traditions do you enjoy during the holidays?
Holidays are so different for me now that my children are all grown up and on their own and so far away from home. So I really don’t have any holiday traditions like I did when they are little.
Have your perceptions of the foodservice industry changed since working with Douglas? If so, how?
Yes, it has. I have learned that there is so much that goes into the restaurant business than I used to think.
If someone decided to visit West Virginia, what time of year would you recommend? And why?
I love the fall. The mountains are so beautiful when the leaves are changing.
