Merle is hard working and loyal. She has excellent customer service skills and customers trusted Merle’s advice. Merle was a great asset to the team and worked well with everyone. Merle used her initiative to make suggestions for improvement and could be trusted to work on her own as well. I wouldn’t hesitate to employ Merle again and can highly recommend her
