Macey’s Spotlight March: Jorge Elgueta

Jorge Elgueta has served guests in the meat department at Macey’s Plesant Grove for almost 14 years. He’ll celebrate the milestone next month and looks forward to many more years of helping guests get great meat products. Jorge is currently the meat manager, but has worked almost every job in the department since starting out as a meat cutter.

“I like my job. I enjoy everything I do here,” Jorge said.

Helping guests get exactly what they need is one of Jorge’s favorite parts of his job. He’s a great example of Happy Shopping because he is continually smiling and happy to help everyone he comes across. Need help picking the best meat for dinner? Ask Jorge! He’s always very informative about the best selection of product and loves to help guests.

Serving shoppers goes beyond just providing great product. For Jorge, it means making sure there is enough of the type of meat and cuts guests want, even if he has to come back in after his shift. He recalls one night where the store was really busy and a guest wanted a certain cut. They didn’t have any left and Jorge had already left for the night. Someone called him and he came back to the store to cut the meat for the shopper.

“Jorge is an amazing team member because he goes above and beyond for not just the guests, but also the team. He’s always willing to teach and manage the business side of things,” said Amber Condie, assistant store director at Macey’s Pleasant Grove. “He’s always making sure we have everything our guests need.”

Macey’s Spotlight: Naomi Whitehorse

With experience in multiple departments, Naomi Whitehorse is always eager to help guests at Macey’s in Sandy. She currently works in the produce department, but has gotten to know guests as a cashier and in the deli over the last year and a half. No matter what department she’s working in, she has loved every minute of working at Macey’s.

“I love working at Macey’s because I get to help guests find great products,” Naomi said. “Helping people is what I’m all about.”

Interacting with store visitors and providing product suggestions is Naomi’s favorite part of her job. She is committed to helping shoppers find the items they need, promoting healthy lifestyles with excellent produce, and making their day a little better by being happy and helpful.

Interacting with guests goes beyond simply telling them where products are. Naomi says she likes to get to know the frequent guests and has built friendships with many of them. These relationships motivate her to be better at her job and help more people.

While the guests may be her favorite part of her job, she loves the Macey’s team in every department. “I’ve had a chance to get to know everyone in the store from the bakery to the front end to the grocery team. My coworkers are really fun and outgoing and that makes me enjoy my job even more.”

“Naomi has a great attitude every day! She is fantastic with guests and always gets them what they need or finds someone that can assist them so they are pleased and happy. She embodies the Happy Shopping experience and helps build morale in the store,” said Gary Carter, Naomi’s store director.

Favorite Macey’s Item: Kong Korn. “It’s a staple in my house and my mom’s house! It’s at every party and event we host because we love it so much. We’re from Arizona and we always bring it with us when we visit family there. They can’t get enough.”

Tip for Shopping at Macey’s: “Grab an ad and check for deals, download digital coupons, and never skip the Treasure Aisle.”

Macey’s Spotlight – CJ Linford

If you’ve shopped at our Spanish Fork location, you’ve probably seen CJ Linford greeting each guest with a smile. CJ is one of our front-end courtesy clerks and has been part of the Macey’s team for 13 years! He’s worked in almost every department throughout the store. He began his Macey’s career as a courtesy clerk, moved to the dairy, and joined the produce department for a bit before returning to the front-end team. Regardless of where he’s worked, CJ is always happy to help and loves talking to everyone.

Helping guests makes CJ’s day. He knows the store regulars by name and catching up with them during each visit brightens his day. He loves seeing them smile too. CJ also enjoys working with the entire Macey’s team.

“My team are my friends,” CJ said of his coworkers.

His team also considers him a good friend.

“CJ always has a positive attitude. It doesn’t matter what is happening in the store, CJ just keeps smiling,” said Bill Summers, store director at Macey’s in Spanish Fork. “He will do whatever we ask him to do. He doesn’t care if he is bagging or cleaning up a mess, he is always happy. I know that if I have a bad day, CJ will pick me up. We have CJ train our new baggers because we want his attitude to spread to all of our new team members.”

Favorite Macey’s product: Twist Kong Kones. “They taste really good!”

Tip for Shopping at Macey’s: Don’t be afraid to ask for help. The whole team wants to help you!

Macey’s Spotlight – Jill Hoppie

Jill Hoppie isn’t afraid to go the extra mile for guests. In fact, it’s one of her favorite things about working at Macey’s. She’s had plenty of experience in her five years at Macey’s on Highland Drive. Jill is currently a butcher-block supervisor and previously worked in the bakery there. She loves her team and the fun they have working together, but interacting with guests makes her day. She does her best to remember names and looks forward to seeing the regular shoppers who come in daily.

“I like going the extra mile for people. I like helping,” said Jill. “I’ve made life-long friends with some of our frequent guests. I know about their family, they know about mine. They bring me Christmas presents and always make sure to say hi when they’re in the store.”

One guest experience really stands out to Jill. The family had already finished their shopping before they remembered they needed something from the butcher block. They couldn’t wait for the item to be cut and seasoned, but really wanted it. Jill took the order and delivered it to their home shortly after. Her extra efforts made an impression on the family and now they’re good friends with Jill.

“Jill is a great part of the Macey’s on Highland Drive team,” said Alan Russell, Jill’s store director. “She’s always willing to help, is reliable, very friendly, and a great person to work with. The whole team just loves her.”

Favorite Macey’s Product: The fresh squeezed grapefruit juice.

Tip for Shopping at Macey’s: “Come in with an open mind and ready to experience all the new products and services.”
