Personal comments

I’m not going to lie – I love my EDO’s! Seriously though, I’ve worked in a number of different places, and I thought about it a lot before applying to FMD. It came highly recommended, and I’m glad I did my research. There’s a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere amongst staff that I really enjoy. It’s a pleasure to come to work, and I get to do what I love – what a bonus! - Jeff
