Briefly describe your job duties at Pahl’s:
I have several duties, all of which vary from season to season. During early spring I take part in planting flowers with the staff as well as helping customers get the most out of their experience when coming to Pahls. As late spring and early summer comes around I am either in the fields or in the warehouse loading trucks with produce, along with other miscellaneous jobs throughout the year.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the expressions on people’s faces when they walk into the greenhouse and it is filled with beautiful flowers, and also helping them with any questions they have. Being able to make someone’s day and put a smile on their face is a unique and very rewarding experience.

What is your favorite time of day/day of the week/month of the year?
Well I don’t know about my favorite part of the day or week, but my favorite time of the year is around the fourth of July. We typically are harvesting cabbage for the first time, and it always seems to be hot and sunny.

What is your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
I really enjoy hockey, hunting, softball in the summers, and any chance I can get to go ice fishing. As for an indoor activity, if you get me a TV and movies there is a good chance you won’t see me for days.

What is the farthest you have been away from home? Tell us the most unique experience from that trip?
Last summer I worked for a company out in Washington State. There were several unique experiences that I was able to take from it, but I would say the most unique was establishing long lasting friendships with people across the country.

Having absolutely no responsibility and putting a baseball card in the spokes of your bicycle wheel.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I would like to learn how to be a meteorologist, for several reasons.

What was the first thing you bought with your own money?
I bought a Minnesota Timberwolves hat with all of my change saved, and I brought all of it in and the cashier was not pleased.

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick to be your mentor?
I would pick my Grandpa; he’s always been there for me and always finds the right words to give me advice when I have needed it.

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
Buy a brand new car for my mom! (You’re welcome mom)
