Meet this Year’s First Employee of the Month
The EMBERS Staffing Solutions Employee of the Month program is made possible by our friends at Home Depot. They supply winners with $100 worth of tools and equipment to help them on their journey to becoming economically self-sufficient.
Sam is EMBERS Staffing Solutions top pick for the January Employee of the Month award. We think Sam deserves this award because she works hard, shows up, and always has a positive attitude.
How did you find out about EMBERS?
I found out about EMBERS from one of my coworkers when I was working on a site with another temp agency. I had been working full time, but after that job ended I didn’t want to go through the process of submitting resumes and waiting for job interviews, so I came to EMBERS. I’ve now been working with EMBERS for a year.
What is your favourite part about working with EMBERS?
That you gave me the opportunity to get the hoist training, and that you lent me all the gear to get started working.
What do you tell people when they ask you about EMBERS?
I just tell them what you guys do. I tell them if you want to continue working at EMBERS, and if you want tickets, you need to show up and prove yourself. That’s what I did to get my tickets, I had to prove myself.
What was your reaction when you found out you were the employee of the month?
I was surprised but pleased that you guys see that there are actually employees out there who actually do want to work, and keep working. I like that you guys kept me busy. If I don’t come to work, you call me and I will help you. I work 10-hour days doing hoist. I do an additional six or seven hours on Saturdays.
For new workers, what kind of advice would you give them?
To work hard and prove yourself if you want an ongoing job or a ticket. You just have to commit yourself to working every day and you’ll get there. That’s what I do. Even when I am sick I show up for work.
Serious about moving up in your career?
Come by EMBERS and we’ll help you get there.
