Cinnamon Krall put her 13-year healthcare services career on pause for three years while she pursued both her Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees. Once graduated, she was ready to get back into the swing of things – which meant going back to work.
Despite not knowing what kind of work she’d secure with a staffing firm, a staffing firm seemed like a good idea. And as it so happened, one of her friends was acquainted with Michelle Harbarcuk, TERRA’s Director of Strategic Accounts, and recommended that Cinnamon connect with her.
Cinnamon had zero expectations, but she was ready for anything!
Michelle met with Cinnamon at TERRA’s Tacoma office. She immediately recognized that Cinnamon had strong computer skills, a creative edge, and a fantastic customer service background. Michelle knew Cinnamon was a great candidate and told the Tacoma team about her.
Not long after, Cinnamon was placed in a contract to hire role with a major employer headquartered in Tacoma. She started in the National Accounts department and, due to restructuring, was moved to the Contracts Department as a Contracts Services Assistant.
Cinnamon clearly had the computer skills to keep up with the fast-paced office environment. According to Michelle, “The client liked Cinnamon because she could understand their programs quickly, since she’d used many of them in school. She also fit in amazingly with their team.”
That amazing fit was felt on both sides!
Not only did Cinnamon enjoy her job, she especially enjoyed the variety in every day. “Everything is different. Nothing’s the same,” Cinnamon said.
Three months, later, Cinnamon was hired on as a full-time, regular employee!
Since starting, she has been promoted to Contracts Administrator. And we’re pleased to announce that, as of a few weeks ago, Cinnamon has been promoted once more and she is now Contracts Services Supervisor!
Regarding her experience with TERRA, she shared, “TERRA felt like a family, like somebody was looking out for my personal well-being,” She’s already gone on to tell her family and friends about TERRA.
Cinnamon specifically wanted to thank Tabitha Delaire, Tacoma Staffing Manager, and Barbara Van Meter, Tacoma Branch Manager, for all of their help. “They’ve been available and receptive to any feedback I give. They’ll always work with me to problem solve!”
Congratulations, Cinnamon, on your recent promotion! We are so excited for you and wish you continued success!
