I left my career in social work when it became too stressful and draining. It was the best decision I ever made! I love the satisfaction of the work I do at Pop-A-Lock. I started as a part-time Technician to see if I liked it and have since been promoted to a Roadside Supervisor. Now, I’m apprenticing as a Locksmith and can’t believe how much there is to learn! It is a tight family environment here, and I am so supported by Matt and Margie. The best part of my day is making people smile as I help people in my community.

Technician smiling

I joined Pop-A-Lock because I was tired of the monotony of being a manager at a grocery store and I was craving a different opportunity with more freedom. I was curious about locksmithing because I like solving puzzles and I wanted to learn some new skills. What has surprised me most about the job is the deep satisfaction I get from helping people out of desperate situations. I feel so lucky that this isn’t just a job for me, it’s become a career and a calling. If I get to do this job for the rest of my life, I’d be very happy!

I had worked as a locksmith for a few years before but when I came to Pop-A-Lock, I was immediately impressed by the professionalism and innovative technology we use. I love how expansive locksmithing is as a trade. There is always room for growth and there is always something you can learn or go deeper on: cracking safes, automotive, residential, commercial, and more. On top of that I love working independently, while also being supported by my local team and professional locksmiths across North America. There’s no better locksmithing company to work for!
