OLD SCHOOL GAMER VILLAGE WALK SERGEY KIRILLOV
I quickly saw he purchased a CLASSIC NES replica with a bunch of the classic games for me. Knowing from our many conversations that I also love to hike, kayak and take part in many outdoor activities, he also bought a Dick Sporting Goods gift card, a Gameboy Keychain and a cool Nintendo t-shirt that read “Old School”.

Ish had been asking for a while about my hobbies, including my childhood ones. He even invited me to lunch at random, but I did not think too much of it. One day, I came into the office after a few service requests, and he asked me to take a strange package to a resident’s apartment, claiming the resident wanted me to open the package before I delivered it to make sure it was what they ordered. I thought this was odd because the package was tightly packaged with a ton of tape, and I feared it could be anthrax or some other weird substance – I could be getting set up. Ish kept egging me to open it and started laughing which gave away that this was no resident request, so I went ahead and opened the package. He was just getting me back for all the pranks I love to pull on our little work family.

I was blown away by this generosity and the fact that management really cares and thinks about their employees. Lunch is more than enough to show employees that they are appreciated, but Venterra takes employee appreciation up a notch by personalizing thoughtful surprises. I appreciate that my manager made a point to get to know me and remember my conversations. 1 0 T H
