Interview With Nathan Dye - Salesman


What have you enjoyed most about working at Kelly's?

Meeting new people, talking with them, and working closely with friends and family.


What’s the most unique part about working at Kelly's?

Working with family and friends. I don't know too many places where I can go to work and have known the people I work with for a majority of my life.


What is your team like?

My team is very knowledgeable and has many decades of experience. If there is a question on anything, our team works very hard to find the answer. It's nice to work in a place where people want to help and support each other.


What parts of our mission do you connect with?

I don't like selling anything because it might make me more money to sell the most expensive product. I like finding what suits each customer and then ensuring that they will not pay more to shop with us. I think when we are doing right by the customers, we all win.


What is one brand you have found to be the most worthwhile? Why?

I have Jenn Air in my own home, so I probably should say that is the most worthwhile, but I really do like the entire line of appliances on the Cafe Series. I think both manufacturers really do well across the board on everything they do.


What is one piece of advice you can give to folks who are in the market for a new appliance?

We are not more expensive than the big box stores :)

Other than that, photos, and dimensions of what is currently in there really helps. If there is one thing that I have learned, it is that no setup is 'standard', and it is not always possible for us to know all the variables that are associated with the product you are looking for. Photos and measurements help eliminate some of those variables.


How have you grown professionally while on our team?

Considering I have spent a majority of my adult life working at Kelly's, I can honestly say that I have learned quite a bit here. I do feel grateful for the opportunity that has been made for me to have a career here.


What do you like to do for fun?

Anything outdoors - especially sports. I also really love spending time with my wife and kids, traveling, trying new restaurants, or just relaxing on the couch.


Favorite dining spot in Salem?

Right now, I really like Ritter's. Downtown Salem definitely has a few nice places though.


Current Netflix/TV show recommendation?

It usually is whatever I happen to be watching at the time with my wife, which is hard to get through any show quickly with our schedule. Right now, it probably is The Terminal List.


Favorite band?

Not sure I can pin down one favorite; I enjoy all types of music.
