It’s important to feel taken care of by your employer.
If you don’t, it may be time to move on to something new… something better.
That’s what Reyson Rufes did.
Rey had over 10 years of warehouse experience under his belt. For years, he worked for a large produce distribution warehouse. He did everything from pulling orders to forklift and electric pallet jack operation.
He was content and liked what he was doing. Until his employer switched unions.
That changed everything for him, and he no longer felt taken care of.
Rey decided it was time to move on and find a new employment opportunity.
Wanting to find a job that would allow him to utilize his skill set, he began looking for similar warehouse positions. He also decided to share his resume alone.
Samantha Skach, Beaverton Recruiter, came across it and thought he had some great experience.
She reached out to him and scheduled him for an interview at TERRA’s Beaverton office.
Upon meeting him and learning more about his experience, Sam realized that Rey was perfect for a position her fellow Recruiter, Laila Hosseini, was working on.
Laila shared, “Sam told me that Rey would be a great fit for a forklift position I was working on. After talking to him, I wholeheartedly agreed! I learned that he had 10 years of warehouse and forklift experience. Not only that, he was incredibly personal – a great fit for the company. I knew I had to get him in front of my client immediately.”
Everything happened quickly after that.
Laila presented him to her client and Rey received a job offer that very same day!
Rey is happy in his new role. He thinks it’s a great fit for him.
“It’s the kind of job I like to do,” he said. “It’s a fun environment and I’m working with good people. I definitely feel taken care of – and they offer good benefits!”
The client is incredibly happy having him on their team. They told Laila, “Rey is a great fit. You hit the nail on the head.”
Regarding his experience with TERRA, he shared, “Walking into their office can turn a bad day into a good day. I definitely recommend TERRA. It was the right place to go to find a job. They really stepped up to the plate.”
If you want to turn a temp job into a career, here is Rey’s advice:
“Stick to it. Come to work every day. Do the duties you’ve been given. Work hard.”
