Jose Jaime couldn’t see a future for himself in his job as a delivery driver. He felt totally unsupported and underutilized by his team. You could hear it in his voice when he described the work environment
“It was one of the worst jobs I’ve ever had in my life. If you’re new, no one teaches you anything. When you’re looking for something, no one helps you. They just leave you alone. I was totally on my own in this job.”
Fed up with the lack of collaboration, he decided it was time to look for a new job. So he started searching for work online, which led him to TERRA’s Phoenix branch.
Jose loves working in a production environment, specifically because of the camaraderie it provides him. When discussing what he wanted out of his next job with the Phoenix team, he made sure to let them know.
“I like to work with people! I’m a team player. And I like to be busy.”
So it made sense that teamwork and people would be guiding factors in his search. And Jose was optimistic. He knew that the right position would come.
Luckily, he didn’t have to keep the faith for too long. Because Michelle Greene, Phoenix Staffing Specialist, reached out about a Warehouse Associate position with a local plastics company.
My client needed someone who was a jack of all trades. They wanted someone who knew the ins and outs of a warehouse, who knew how to operate a forklift, was a team player and had a great attitude—Jose was all of those things!
So she scheduled an interview for Jose with her client right away. And in just one week, Jose had a new job!
Here’s what sealed the deal for him:
“The people that interviewed me were really nice. I could tell then, that it was the job for me. The way they talked to me and the way they treated me was just so different from my last job.”
The client was immediately taken with Jose. After their conversation, the supervisor called Michelle to tell her, “Jose is just a good human.”
We’re happy to share that Jose is doing very well in his new position! The teamwork, in particular, is just what he was hoping for.
“They take the time to show you how to do the job right. And it’s as simple as that! They’re always there for you.”
If you’re looking for work, here’s what Jose recommends.
“Ask for a chance to show them what you got. And always be positive!”
Congratulations, Jose! We’re so glad you’ve found a job with a team that values and supports you.
