Jon Hass spent most of his professional career in warehouse environments, in retail stores, and in distribution centers. He had done just about everything, from shipping and receiving to inventory management and operating heavy machinery.
When Jon first heard about TERRA, it was because one of his friends, Sara, had begun working there in an IT Support role. But he didn’t pay TERRA much mind. He already had a job and didn’t see himself looking for a new one any time soon.
Plus, his only other staffing experience involved him going on one interview and never hearing back from that agency again.
But when he eventually did find himself looking for work, his friend Sara strongly recommended he reach out to TERRA’s Everett office.
He was placed in a new position in no time.
Unfortunately, that first job placement was not ideal for Jon. He put up with a brutal 45-60 hour work week for seven months before deciding to look for a better fit.
Patty Stoddard, Everett Branch Manager, presented Jon to another client for a new role. It didn’t work out.
But Patty was so impressed with Jon’s attitude and follow-through that she decided to present him to yet another client. And this one was perfect for Jon!
The client was a major toy designing company and they had an opening for someone that had experience using NAV to track inventory.
Jon’s warehouse experience translated perfectly.
Not to mention the fact that Jon was a huge fan of their product!
Jon had many thanks to go around, and one “thank you” was specifically for Patty Stoddard. “I would like to thank Patty for helping me get to where I am now. She took the time to get to know me as a person and as a worker, which has helped me end up in a great position with what I would call a ‘dream’ company.”
He went on to say, “I had no expectations going in to TERRA. Now I feel like the bar has been set pretty high. Without TERRA, I wouldn’t be where I am right now and I honestly couldn’t imagine a more perfect position to be in!”
