JR McCandless—Account Executive/ Inside Sales
Code name: Cub
Code Phrase: “Cub is in, let the fun begin!”
Birthday: “The Day of the Social Realist”
Traits: People born on this day have a voice that is heard above the crowd; with insight into psychology and the ability to assume leadership. Hard-headed and pragmatic, May 3rd people can seem satirical, but they are clever, effective problem-solvers.
Experience: lots and lots of schooling (equaling lots of school loans!!) 3 years sales, which I like even better than going to school.
Hobbies include: Playing dead, Extreme Ironing, Cosplay, handcuff collecting, answering online surveys for absolutely no reason, Taphophilia, beetle fighting…(did my birthday traits mention satire?)
Favorite music genre: Country music rocks my speakers. We listen to Classic Rock at the office, until the cats are away!! Then the mice play COUNTRY.
Little-known fact: I’ve been pulled over 17 times in Mexico and have only been given ONE ticket; I’ve talked my way out of it 16 times.
Funny work story: Last week my bosses made me go outside and take part in the company’s Harlem Shake video. When I politely declined, they calmly threatened to fire me. I ended up being the guy who had to furiously pelvic thrust before the music dropped…it was epic, and I now include the Harlem Shake as part of both my “Favorite Music Genre” and “Hobbies”.
