When Brian Sonnleitner found himself looking for a new job, he was skeptical about working with a staffing agency. He’d had a few bad experiences in a row with recruiters previously.
But when he came across a TERRA job posting seeking a Repair Technician for a robotics company that specializes in making drones, he knew he had to apply. The role was a great match for his skills, given that he had over 16 years of technical work experience under his belt.
Shortly after applying, he was contacted by Yevon Yoo, Kirkland recruiter.
Yevon noted that Brian was incredibly personable and a gifted communicator – and had the skills to do the job. She said about Brian, “I felt confident he would represent TERRA well and knew he would be someone the client would want to hire.”
And she was right.
The client liked Brian because he was reliable and had strong attention to detail. He got along great with his coworkers, too. Plus, Brian had all the hard skills required for the Repair/Electronic Technician position.
They decided to offer him full-time, regular employment!
It’s a challenging but rewarding job for Brian.
“There are times where I’ll literally spend half my day out flying drones. Even if I’m looking for new issues and bugs, it’s still a lot of fun!” he shared.
And we are pleased to report that within two months of starting this new job, Brian is already head of the Repair Department! Not only that, Brian participates in the process of interviewing new candidates for his team.
Brian spoke about his experience with TERRA. “I was pleasantly surprised with how thorough and professional it was right off the bat.” He even compared his experience with TERRA to other staffing firms. “It was like night and day. I’ve worked with various staffing agencies over the years and several times I was misrepresented for positions or sent over a generic job listing, as if just to send me something. Yevon was more concerned with finding me the right position without sacrificing my needs.”
When asked if there was anyone he wanted to thank, he said, “Yevon from the Kirkland office is amazing! It’s really nice to have a positive and enthusiastic person on your side working for you.”
As for TERRA, Brian said, “TERRA really helped to remove a lot of stress while seeking a career change. I recommend TERRA to everyone!”
