Featured Employee: Kari Bell

Customer Loyalty is a huge part of GiftTree… so much so that we have an entire department devoted to it! This month we caught up with Kari Bell, who has been in the department since it’s creation.

Hi Kari! You’ve been with GiftTree for awhile now…. do you have any memorable or funny moments you’d like to share?

The most memorable moment is probably the first time I saw someone getting their desk trashed on their birthday.  My first thought was “Yes!  This is going to be an awesome place to work!”

What is the last concert you went to?

The last concert i went to was Styx at the Clark County Fair.  Its pretty awesome because my first concert ever was Styx and Kansas with my parents.

What is your favorite season and why?

My favorite season would have to be winter.  I love the snow and the cold, plus its Christmas time and I love the holidays!

Favorite GiftTree snack?

Hmmm thats a hard question because everything here is delicious.  I think if I had to choose it would probably be the Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Crackers.  They are especially good with the cheeses we have to offer.

 If you won the lottery, what would you do first? 

I would have to say that I would buy myself a house.  Thats the most important thing to me everything else I can work on after I buy my dream house.

Late nights or early mornings? 

I like to stay up late at night which is why my schedule works so well for me.  I don’t have to get up until 7:30 am.

One adjective to describe life at GiftTree. 


Here’s why we love Kari…

Kari always has a smile on her face!  She comes to work each day full of exuberance and willingness to work!  Kari has been with the GiftTree family for going on a year and a half, working in the Customer Loyalty Team.  She was hired as a temporary employee, then picked from many to become a permeant employee after Mother’s Day 2010.  For a while, Kari WAS the Customer Loyalty team!!!  Kari has handled change like a champ and is always willing to step up to the plate whether it be working over-time, allowing new hires to listen in or planning the next Potluck! Kari has a desire to learn and ameliorate, and has defined herself as a leader within the department!  What we appreciate most about Kari is the fact that she welcomes each new employee with openness and makes everyone feel welcomed on the team!
