I currently work at Buchi and have never felt more at ease in a working relationship between a supervisor and myself than I do with Jeannine Buscher and Sarah Schomber, the owners of Buchi. I have always had complete confidence in voicing any concerns I have to them without fear of losing my job. They give everything they have to the company and are nowhere near making a living wage themselves. I am certain that their intention was never to cheat or hurt anyone. They are doing the best they can, learning how to run a business as they go.
Up to this point, those working for Buchi were considered independent contractors, but workers are now in the process of becoming employees as the business is growing.
One of the benefits I've always enjoyed is the flexibility in any scheduling needs. If I had other obligations, jobs or had to leave early, Sarah and Jeannine have always accommodated my needs. Another current employee will be taking the whole month of January off to go to a meditation retreat, and she knows she will have her job back when she returns. These are the kind of women who support such inner growth in their employees.
