Staff Spotlight: Michael Sirois
Get to know DMARC Warehouse Associate Michael Sirois!
What drew you to DMARC originally, and how has it changed since then?
Well to be honest, I got a text from Andrew (another member of the DMARC team) asking me if I was looking for a job. And, well, long story short, I said yes. That is how I got drawn to DMARC.
What do you like most about working at DMARC?
What I really like most about working at DMARC is the fact that we are not afraid to change for the better. We are always looking for better ways to meet the needs of the people we serve.
What is your proudest moment at DMARC?
This might seem like a cop out answer, but it is true. Every time I get tired of packing orders or loading trucks, I stop and remember what I am really doing, who I am helping and how important this work and this job really is. That is when I feel the most proud, when I stop and think that I have the honor and the privilege to be working here at DMARC.
What’s a fun fact about yourself that others might not be aware of?
I have always loved to write. Short stories, poems, that sort of thing. Maybe one day a screen play. We will see.
Before working at DMARC, what’s the most interesting job you’ve ever had?
The first job I ever had was working at a retirement home in Beaverdale. I was a waiter there. And the stories that you heard from the people living there were unbelievable and sometimes unrepeatable. The people there made it a very interesting place to work to say the least.
Where is your favorite place in the world to be?
At home, with my lovely partner Joy and our two kitties.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I really wanted to be a movie director.
If you could use one famous movie line to describe yourself, what would it be?
“To live… To live will be an awfully big adventure.” – Hook
