If you walk into a small town telephone company office and in the back room they have a dance floor, a TV lounge area for the kids after school, a bar, a complete commercial kitchen and the bathroom is outfitted with a changing table, diapers and wipes for the "granbabies" and at lunch time, grandma, one of the two owners of the 75+ year old company cooks everyone lunch, it might be a family owned business! It almost sounds like a Jeff Foxworthy joke but the truth is, why would you work any place else? This is one of the most relaxed, wholesome work environments I have ever been in.
Magtel in Boonville, Arkansas is just that, a family owned, family run business that still closes from noon to 1 for lunch. And, why wouldn't you close for lunch when grandma cooks for the group? Wow is all I can say and my hat is off to you Magtel. Keep doing what you are doing, you are a lost breed and I wish the remainder of the world did business just like you.
Today was day one of MTCNA training with 5 eager students. Tomorrow we get into the nitty gritty and I hope grandma cooks again! More deviled eggs please!
