Arvin – Snuggle Bugz’s Sr. Distribution Centre Associate and Forklift Driver Extraordinaire –
There’s a good chance if you’ve ordered a car seat or stroller from Snuggle Bugz’s website in the last couple of years, Arvin has personally picked it for you from our warehouse. Arvin’s passion for his job, company and colleagues can be felt through every interaction with him.
How did you come to join team Snuggle Bugz?
I was looking for a job on Indeed and I came across the name Snuggle Bugz. I had never heard of the company before so I had to find out what it was. I was happy I did because I was looking for warehouse work and so were they, so I applied and here I am, 2 and a half years later.
How would you explain your job to a toddler?
I don’t have any kids, but to my nieces and nephews out West, I would say that Uncle Arvin drives a machine at work. I get to do cool things on it like lift stuff and put stuff away. I also get to go shopping with that truck. Somebody gives me a list, and I get to pick the items that they need off of a shelf with a truck.
What products are you in love with right now?
I really love car seats and strollers. That’s my section in the warehouse so those are the products that I love organizing and putting away. If I had to pick one product, I would say UPPAbaby VISTAs as they were the first product I ever worked with when I started here.
When was the last time you LOL?
Everyday, I laugh everyday. I’ll even be at home and I think of what somebody did that day in the warehouse and I’ll still be laughing. Its a great environment to work in.
What song is most played on your playlist?
No particular song right now, I change it around. But I’ve been listening to the rock band Velvet Revolver for the last 2 months.
What do you love about working at Snuggle Bugz?
The people. I love the people and I love my job. I actually love what I do. Not many people can say that they love their boss and their job but I do, I really do love getting up and coming to work everyday.
When you’re not at work, where would we find you?
Usually at home, or with friends. Just hanging around. We’re usually watching sports… mainly hockey. You’ll find us either watching or taking about the game.
What’s your favourite dessert?
Chocolate Cake. Doesn’t matter from where. Anybodies chocolate cake.
Which of the Snuggle Bugz philosophies are you?
I would say “We Love People”. I help people in the warehouse all the time and we help each other. I love that environment. I never had that at any other job where the crew have no problem helping each other.
What are you most excited about for the future?
I just want to be part of helping this company grow. My time here has been amazing, this is probably the best job I’ve ever had. It’s really a family environment which makes working here more than just a job.
