CWDkids' Characters

Staff Profile #10 - Tina (with CWDkids since 1986)

I am another one of CWDkids’ long-timers! I have worked for the company since 1986. When I was originally hired, I was the receptionist, and I distinctly remember all the calls that we received after that first catalog was mailed in 1987. At that time, we were all pitching in taking orders over the phone and fulfilling shipments from our office here in Richmond, VA.

Over the years, my job duties have changed and I have had the chance to work in several different areas. Currently, I handle our damaged merchandise processing, catalog setup in our computer system, creating store merchandise tickets, and recapping sales results by item for each catalog.

However, one of the best parts of my job is purchasing birthday cakes for each staff member…I think that we have at least one staff member in every month with a birthday which means we have a company party at least that often which we all love. After all, who can resist cake?

Over the years, I have been able to take advantage of the discount that I get working for a kids clothing company, but unfortunately, my children, Corey and Whitley, are all grown up now. Whitley just graduated from high school in June and will be leaving for college at the end of the summer. She is my youngest and we are best buddies. I will miss going to the movies and shopping with her, but most of all, I will miss just having her around. Enjoy the time with your little ones while you can. I can tell you from experience that they grow up way too fast!

Tina’s Tidbits:

  • I love Italian and Chinese food.
  • The Washington Redskins are my favorite football team. I can’t wait for the season to start… Super Bowl, here we come!
  • I have to have that one cup of coffee to get me through the morning rush.

Tina, I love the Redskins too! I used to live just outside of DC and grew up watching the 'Skins. I no longer live there, but we still watch every game. I hope for a great season this year with their new coach.

Thanks for all of your hard work. I've shopped at CWD since 1995 and am still going. I love CWD!
