After serving in the U.S. Army during Desert Storm, Mark Tillman relocated from his home-state of North Carolina and made the Pacific Northwest his new home.
A local staffing agency placed him in his first job outside of the military, as a warehouse associate. He had great success in the role, becoming warehouse manager in just one year!
After five years in the role, however, he wanted more of a challenge. He’d reached his maximum potential at the warehouse and needed to grow.
Shortly after, Mark started a commercial cleaning company on the Eastside. A company he ran for 20 years!
Over time, he felt himself growing bored. Mark decided that his next move would be to get his real estate license.
He took to the internet to search for a staffing agency and found TERRA Staffing Group.
Mark called TERRA’s Everett office and scheduled an interview for the following day. He met Staffing Specialist Jennyfer Russ.
Mark impressed her.
She shared, “Mark was a great communicator. He was honest and very open. He also had great experience.”
One look at his resume and told Mark: “I have THE job for you.”
It was a direct hire Facilities Technician role for the leading creator of pop culture collectibles. She scheduled an interview for him with her client.
It’s worth noting that during the time between his meeting with Jennyfer and his meeting with her client, Mark received countless calls from TERRA Recruiters, who were also wooed by his skill set.
But Mark trusted that Jennyfer had the perfect position for him.
Jennyfer was right. The client loved him and hired him!
Mark is happy in his new role. He shared, “I appreciate being trusted to get the work done and that I am able to work independently. And the fact that I am the only one who does what I do is really exciting. I know everything is getting my quality touch. Plus, the awesome benefits are a nice bonus!”
We asked Mark what advice he had for someone looking for a new job.
“I definitely recommend partnering with a staffing firm. I didn’t want to start a job only to realize it wasn’t the right fit for me. Having someone that can hone in on your skills and qualifications and match it with the ideal position is invaluable to me. TERRA found me a job that fits like a glove.”
