How did you come to work at GoFresh? My husband’s family had all worked at GoFresh since the early 80’s and he was working here as well. His mom worked in the repack area and a position became available so I took it. I started in June of 93 working for cash and then Mark hired me full time after a year. I worked in the repack for 9 years. I was thankful for the job but I wanted more. A position became available in the office and I approached ownership about my desires to do more. They gave me the awesome opportunity and I have just kept moving up from there.
