Time for the next former employee feature where we highlight one of our fine cousins (what we call our employees) who has left us and moved on to a new place in their working life.
Name: Sabrina Enders
Iron Horse Brewery: Position at Iron Horse Brewery?
Sabrina Enders: I did all the things. I started as a server in [ the pub ], then worked in the kitchen a bit. I co-hosted IHB’s awesome podcast with some of my rad cousins. I worked a handful of events. Rounded the whole experience out with 6 months of HR for IHB. Woot for all the things!
IHB: Your LinkedIn listing must be quite lengthy.
IHB: What years did you work at Iron Horse Brewery?
SE: June 2016 to August 2018.
IHB: Almost 2 full years.
IHB: What is your favorite IHB beer?
IHB: Cozy Sweater is coming out soon… how are you going to get some now that you’re gone?
IHB: Where do you work now?
SE: I work for a private school that educates children ages 6 weeks to 8th grade.
IHB: Neat. That is a very different crowd than you worked with at IHB.
IHB: What do you do at the school?
I am the lead teacher in their oldest classroom in the infant and toddler program. So lots of serving snacks, cleaning up spills, teaching colors, helping people use their words… a lot of the same stuff I did at the pub actually
IHB: Ok, so different crowd same job. We get it now.
IHB: How are you doing better now that you’ve moved on from IHB?
SE: I am using that Masters degree that I spent so much time and money on, so that’s great. I also get to see my better half every day, which means a lot to both of us. I’m getting time with my east coast family, which was long overdue. All in all, it was a good move.
IHB: Without you here Slops is finally getting to live out his dream of being a podcast host. So he’s doing better too.
Is there one thing that working at Iron Horse Brewery helped you to get where you are now?
I learned a lot about myself and how I work with others while I was at IHB. I learned that my best bet in communicating with people is being very straightforward, and I also learned that some people don’t respond super well to that while others really appreciate it
Conversely, how did we ruin things for you?
I drank too much free beer and can’t seem to drop the mini keg that consequently appeared on my belly, so thanks for that
IHB: What is your favorite mythical creature?
Toddlers who listen to you the first time? Does that count?
IHB: It absolutely counts because we also have never experienced this in real life.
What is your most memorable moment at IHB?
Gosh this ones tough. There were so many memorable moments and I got to spend my time with so many wonderful people. I will never forget the awesome bottle share podcast we did at Paul and Rikki’s house. Alex’s exploding home brew was a fantastic thing to behold.
IHB: We haven’t really talked about glitter beer since you left.
IHB: On a scale of 1 to 10.3 how much do you miss working at Iron Horse.
SE: Honestly, I miss spending time with my cousins (like a 10billion on that scale), but the work itself I’d pass on. I belong in a classroom.
IHB: We thought you’d say the part you missed the most is drinking beer all day… we imagine you can’t do that at your new job though you probably need a beer more after a long day. Come visit us for a beer next time you visit your west coast family.
