Meet Josh Voth: A WDC Employee Who Used to be a Sous Chef!
My experience as a sous chef is a great benefit. I can guide my customers, and lead them in the right direction because I know how to use these appliances first hand.
WDC Kitchen & Bath Center has been around for 40 years, and in that time, we have had many wonderful and long-time employees. We decided it would be a good idea to introduce a few of them to you. Our next employee spotlight is smart, dedicated, and someone who loves helping his customers. Meet Josh Voth. Josh has worked in the appliance industry for the last 15 years, and for the past 13, he’s been working at our Santa Barbara location in our Kitchen Showroom. “My favorite part of my job is dealing with people, it sounds cliché, but I’m a people person. I like to interact with people, and I like to make sure they’re happy and well taken care of. Sometimes it can be trying, like any job, but it’s the great experiences with my customers that keep me coming back, and enjoying my job year after year.”
Josh is Passionate about Cooking, and of course Cooking Appliances!
“I enjoy selling refrigeration, and washers and dryers, but I’m partial to the cooking appliances because I was a sous chef for four years. I’m really passionate about food, and how I can help my customers find the perfect range or oven for their specific needs. With my cooking background I can really connect with customers and really help them with what they need, not just with what they want, or they think they need. My experience as a sous chef is a great benefit. I can guide my customers, and lead them in the right direction because I know how to use these appliances first hand. My experience is really beneficial.”
Josh Makes Sure his Customers are Happy
There are so many times I felt proud about helping a customer, but the biggest thing with my job is that’s all I want to do is to make sure they are 100% happy.
I want them to come back to WDC, and feel like they will always be well taken care of
It doesn’t matter whether I am in the store or not; all of my coworkers are here to help.
Josh thrives on connecting with customers, and really helping them find the perfect appliances for their remodel.
Since Josh has worked at WDC for a long time, (over a decade) he is very familiar and comfortable with all the manufacturers, and models WDC sells. He can assist both the customers who know exactly what they want, and the ones who are a little unsure. “The best tip I can give a customer is try to figure out what you really like and want, but if you don’t know, that’s where we come in. That’s what we’re here for; we can give you advice on what will work for your needs, and your space. The good thing about me is I’ve been doing this for so long, I’m really familiar with all the different brands and their models, and makes, and how they will work, or not work for your project. So when you visit the WDC Santa Barbara showroom, you won’t waste your time with wrong or misleading answers, I get you the correct information you need the first time.”
Josh loves Santa Barbara!
I’ve been in Santa Barbara for 15 years, so I’m not quite a native, but more like a local, and I just love Santa Barbara. I get out in the city a lot, so I know a lot of contractors and people in town, and a lot of local people just know me through meeting me socially. They have my phone number, my email, and I’m readily available to reach out to if they ever have any questions at all. I get a lot of referrals that way.
It’s nice to know that I’m trusted, and people feel confident suggesting WDC, and passing my name along. It’s very kind of them, and it’s a real compliment.
