Markita McMillan | UncommonGoods

Markita McMillan UncommonGoods Operations Team Lead

My hometown is…
Brooklyn, New York

I’m inspired by…
My children; they are the reason I do everything in life. Hopefully one day they are inspired by me.

My favorite process in the UncommonGoods warehouse is…
The training process. This is where the ground work for all processes begins. A good training = A great worker.

The chore I absolutely HATE doing is…
DISHES… hands Down! When I was younger I had to wash the dishes every night. So a little secret is that I live off of paper plates and plastic cups. You’ll never catch me without them.

If I could learn anything, it would be…
I would like to learn how to operate a hospitality business.

If I won the lottery, I would…
Invest in my own hospitality business. I would try to hire as many seasonal UncommonGoods team members as I possibly could, because honestly, I never met a bunch of harder working people in my entire working career. I would need these types of workers to keep my business thriving!

When I have 30 minutes of free time, I pass it by…
Just plain old relaxing, because that is one of the hardest things for me to do. Free time is so scarce. Sitting still is one of the hardest things for me to do.

Would you rather… be unable to see for one day OR unable to use your phone for one month?
Unable to use my phone for one month. To not be able to see for one day is one of the scariest things I ever had to think of. I need my sight for everything. That would not just effect one day, but possibly forever. I might make one mistake that might haunt me for the rest of my life! Too scary!!!
