Hi my name is Orlando Montano and I am from a small town in Arizona called Yuma. I come from a huge family of 5 girls and 5 boys and I am second to the youngest. My dad always wanted a huge family. I moved to San Diego right after graduating high school back in 1994. But I was too young to be out here on my own and decided to move back home. But in 1998 I returned back to San Diego.
I have 15 years of experience in sales, customer service, marketing and management as well as in a call center setting. My first job here in San Diego was working as a receptionist for an internet company. With hard work and dedication I was promoted to a sales rep. After being in sales for a number of years I was promoted to sales manager. I have always wanted to be in the sales/customer service field. Based on my work experience one of my friends recommended that I apply for the position of Sales Rep with Old Town Trolley of San Diego. I have been with Old Town Trolley Tours since 2010.
This is my first job working in an outside booth setting. I really enjoy it and I have a lot fun with it.
What is your greatest fear?
My greatest fear is a fear of heights. I don’t like to have my feet removed from the ground. I like to be in control of my body. I have overcome the flying part of it but it is still hard to deal with.
What is your favorite vacation spot?
My favorite vacation spot is a place near the ocean. And living in San Diego, I feel like I am on vacation all the time.
What or who is the greatest love of your life?
The greatest love of my life besides my family are my dogs. I had two Pomeranians for 13 years, but they died of old age. I am a huge pet lover and currently I own two cats, which were abandoned on my door step at two weeks old. Their names are Hansel and Gretel.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
I could name a couple but one in particular is moving from the desert (Yuma Az.) and into PARADISE (San Diego Ca.).
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
My idea of perfect happiness is living life like there is no tomorrow. When I was born I was born sick. I was very weak, anemic and with a heart conditions but I survived and I am so grateful to be alive. My father once told me “son you have to live your life full of light and happiness, celebrate life to the fullest because one day we are here and gone tomorrow “, this is why my colleagues always see me with a smile and a positive attitude at work. There is nothing more pleasing to me than to make people laugh, smile and even giggle..
