Staff Post - Stacy Knight
Stacy joined Idealpos in 2007. When she's not working she enjoys keeping fit and spending time with her husband and four kids.
Unlike most staff at Idealpos I don’t come from an IT background and in fact had never used a POS system in my life so I don’t have any interesting IT knowledge or stories to tell so I’ll just tell my story.
Before starting at Idealpos in February 2007 my days were spent raising some really great kids (we have three girls and a boy) and working part time in a dance studio. With our youngest daughter nearing the end of high school I decided that I wanted to make some changes – to get a “real job” and to get fit - so I joined a gym and applied for a job as a receptionist at an IT company and here I’ve been ever since. In the 10 years since I’ve been at Idealpos I’ve seen big changes - the company has grown and grown and I’m now 25kg lighter and fitter than I’ve ever been.
My day at work is always busy and varied and filled with all things accounts related. It might also be my voice at the end of the phone if you call Idealpos. I understand how important our customers are and hopefully I’m able to direct them to the right person for assistance straight away. After ten years of answering the phone I’ve got to know many of our customers and often find myself having a bit of a chat about what I did over the weekend or what my kids are up to before passing the call through to our support team which is great!
One of the other things I love most about working at Idealpos is the people – we are in fact a very diverse bunch from many different backgrounds. There’s never a dull moment with a lot of very interesting conversations and always a lot of laughs.
With no kids at home now we have more time to do the things we love like travelling, keeping fit, going to the footy and finding new places to eat and catch up with friends. This year we have our first wedding to plan with our middle daughter getting married in November so our life is filled with all things wedding.
