If It Weren’t for TERRA, I Wouldn’t Have a Roof Over My Head

Linda Mitchell first came to TERRA in 2006, after a turn in the economy left her unemployed for nearly a year and a half.
She shared, “I didn’t know what TERRA had to offer. But the economy hit me hard. I had been out of work for 18 months. I went to TERRA and started work the next day!”
You see, Linda was flexible – willing to work in short notice and do whatever jobs were presented to her – and so Sarah Fields and Tamika Williams, Staffing Specialists in our Tukwila office, were able to help her find steady work.
“TERRA always kept me working!” said Linda.
Everywhere Linda went she made a great impression and did fantastic work.
In the fall of 2014, the Tukwila team was looking for someone to do a packaging and assembly job for a new client, and Sarah immediately thought of Linda.
“Linda has such a positive and friendly disposition. I knew she would mesh well with any team and motivate others with her upbeat attitude,” Sarah said.
They sent her out on the job and the client was really pleased with Linda.
According to Sarah, “The client really appreciated her reliability, work ethic and attention to detail. Linda takes great pride in her work and it shows.” She added, “Three months later, they hired her on full-time and she has been there ever since!”
Linda has been working for the client for two years now and is still very happy with her job. “I like how it keeps me busy. I was working in fulfillment and learned how to fuse foam together. I learned a lot.”
When asked if she would recommend TERRA, Linda shared, “It’s a matter of devotion. How bad do you want to work? If someone is serious about working, then I’ll direct them to TERRA.”
She also had some kind words to share about members of the Tukwila team, “Sarah has always been great. Tamika has always kept me busy.”
Linda added, “I wouldn’t have a roof over my head if not for TERRA!”
We honestly couldn’t be happier for Linda. And we are so glad that we were able to be a resource during her time of need – and today! Linda turns to TERRA whenever she is looking to make some extra cash doing weekend work.
Thank you, Linda, for trusting in TERRA for all these years!
