Being successful in life is no accident. It takes a great deal of perseverance, determination, sacrifice and willingness to learn for one to become successful. To maintain that success is even more difficult, but this has not stopped the humble and dedicated Marylin Dick.

Dick has proven that she will commit herself to any task she is given and will put in the hours needed to be successful. For 39 years her perseverance, diligence, hardworking nature and dedication towards her career and company have been clearly visible.

Starting as a sales assistant, Dick has worked herself up in the ranks and today she is the proud administration controller at Pick n Pay in Walvis Bay.

Dick has been a part of the Pick n Pay family for so long because of the core values of the company that she is able to identify with. “I have been loyal towards the company for almost 40 years, because of the honest and reliable nature of Pick n Pay,” she says.

Dick was born and raised in the heart of Walvis Bay and started her school career at Tamariska Primary School. “I still remember those years growing up and my love for netball. I played every position from centre to goal defender.”

She started working at Pick n Pay in 1980, which was then still known as the Model Supermarkets franchise in agreement with Woolworths.

Her duties as administration controller includes making up timetables, double-checking invoices, taking care of any queries and operating the switchboard.

“My biggest achievement in my career has been my ability to build my own house with the salary I received from the company,” she says.

Dick gives all the honour to her heavenly Father who provided her with the skills, patience and determination needed to be successful within her career.

“My superpowers come from God, who has been assisting and guiding me throughout these years. I am very blessed and truly happy to be one of the many employees at PnP in Walvis Bay, and I am excited about the journey and life ahead.”
