Congratulations on your recent promotion, Curron! We are so happy and excited for you!

Curron Williams had worked in a number of industries, including fast food, retail and lumber.

When he relocated from California to Washington, he began searching for warehouse jobs online. He found an opening for a warehouse position through TERRA’s Everett office and applied.

The next day he received a call from Recruiter, Kiara Kennedy.

Kiara felt that Curron’s previous distribution and stockroom experience – two years and three years, respectively – translated well to the available job. But what really stood out to her was his attitude. He was extremely positive and enthusiastic.

She said, “Curron was genuinely excited for new opportunities.”

She recommended Curron to Santana Grayson, Everett Staffing Specialist, who was looking to fill the warehouse opening. Santana arranged an interview between Curron and the client.  “I set him up to go interview, did his interview prep and tried to do his follow up – but he had already started!”  she shared.

That’s right. The client was so impressed by him during the interview that they started him immediately!

Curron knew that he would be successful at anything he put his mind to. So when he was placed on an assembly team, he jumped right in and gave it his all. One of his leads commented on how quickly he picked up everything and how seamlessly he fit in.

Soon after starting, Curron moved from assembly to retail. And we are so pleased and excited to share that he was hired on full-time after only a month working for the company – record time!

Not only that, since being hired on, Curron has been promoted once more!

Curron loves his new role and appreciates the freedom he has to focus on his daily tasks for work.

When asked if he would ever recommend anyone to TERRA, he said, “Only the ones that are willing to work!” Curron takes pride in a job well done, and expects nothing less from those around him.

Curron wanted to thank Kiara for her help. But he also had a special thank you for Santana. He said, “Santana always had faith in me. She helped me take the next step.”

Santana couldn’t be happier for Curron. “Whenever I am on site at the client facility, I check in on him and make sure to say ‘hi’ if I see him. He is one of the happiest people I’ve ever met!” she shared.

Curron, you impressed everyone with your positive attitude, and your hard work and commitment definitely made you a valuable asset to our client. We are thrilled for your success and are happy we were able to play a part in your story.
