Sherita Octavious “Uneek” T.
Customer Service Manager
I love challenges. I believe I can do anything, anything in my power—anything that you can do, I can do. When I was a woman in automotive, I constantly had to prove myself. People couldn’t believe that they were seeing a woman change their oil and tires, but I think I was more effective, because it’s not about how fast you do it—it’s about accuracy and how you take care of things. It doesn’t matter what your gender is, but can you make customers leave the store happy, proud?
Now I’m over the front end. I feel like that’s the focal point of the store. You see me when you come in; you see me when you leave. My job is to take care of you, get you out of these lines quickly, and make sure your experience was great. I come into contact with so many people, and that’s really helping me with my music. I see a lot going on, and I can incorporate different ideas into my music.
To me, music is an influence on different generations, on different people, diversities. When you have music, you can communicate with everyone. So, this challenge was the perfect opportunity to combine my passion for music and my work. Believe it or not, I had older customers come in and repeat what I said in my OGP rap. That means they listened to what I said, and they’re learning from it. Walmart gave me that opportunity, and I’m so humbled by it.
