Keeping with our Dog Mom theme this month, we want to introduce employee #8 (did I really write 8? I Can’t believe how we have grown.).
I remember the day Cori Ybarra came to interview for a position at Dog is Good. When she left, Jon turned to me and said ” We need not look any further, Cori is fantastic and a perfect fit for us here”. Jon is right about most things ( I say in my adoring, “devoted wife” voice) and he was spot on when he selected Cori to join the Dog is Good family. Cori’s addition to the team has made a significant difference with efficiency and accuracy of both wholesale and retail order fulfillment. We also put up both our hands in a double “whoop whoop” for her customer service as quite a few customers have contacted us directly to sing her praises. She has gone out of her way to make things right for our customers and because of this “above and beyond” approach to service, Cori has left a lasting positive impression with our customers.
Cori has only been here since March and says, ” I LOVE my job! There’s not one thing that I don’t like about this place. We are a family away from home and I can actually say I love coming to work to help this amazing company grow. We have some of the best customers plus I get to bring my “dog niece”, Layla, to play with all the other four legged employees we have running around. Fun Environment!”
At Dog is Good, we want to foster a work environment that is fun, allows people to excel in what they do, and provide opportunity for everyone to contribute to our growth in a positive way. Cori has exceeded our expectations.
Cori grew up with many animals, including dogs, cats, horses, birds, and bunnies. Her fondest memories are of Bobby, a Cocker Spaniel, who became her best friend growing up. She now gets to be an “auntie” to Layla, an adorable Shitzu/Yorkie mix, but the light of her life right now is her darling daughter, Charley Rose. The only challenge she finds in raising the two is preventing both of them from peeing on the floor.
5 Things most people don’t know about Cori:
1. She is a twin and they were born on two different dates
2. She is an excellent equestrian
3. She loves to go camping
4. She loves to fish, learned to fish when she was 8
5. She loves to hang out with her “Awesome” Dad, who she says is the “Best Dad Ever!”
Many companies hope to find good employees. Dog is Good has been blessed with OUSTANDING. Cori is a true asset to the team!!!
