Here at All Star Labor & Staffing we have the immense privilege of being a part of peoples journey. People who sometimes need a hand, not a hand-up – there is a difference. Our employees are our partners, we wouldn’t be here without their hard work and that makes us their biggest fans. Cheering on our fellow staff members and employees is a gift and today we want to honor one of them – Kevin S., employed in Salem, OR.
Kevin S. has a long work history in construction, at one point before the recession he was working successfully as a licensed contractor. He was living and working in the Lebanon – Sweet Home area doing his best to find long term work but eventually lost his job and in time lost his transportation as well. He decided to move to Salem to live with his mother while he got back on his feet. Kevin’s job search stared at unemployment and led him to the Goodwill WorkSource where he was referred to All Star.
“Kevin came to our office on February 16th, 2017,” said Karen Cain, Salem Branch Manager. “During the interview he showed our Staffing Coordinator, Matt pictures of the cabinets he had recently built, it was clear that Kevin had some very valuable skills. Matt immediately set-up an interview for him with ServiceMaster. He interviewed the following week and was immediately assigned to full-time work as a carpenter earning a great hourly wage. Kevin has been unemployed for some time and we are overjoyed that we were able to get him back to work the field he loves, at a fantastic company.”
“The All Star office really helped me and I will always be thankful for how much support I was given,” Kevin remarked. “It’s never easy to find a good fit with a company. Usually you can find a place that may be a good job but it is unusual to find a place that has a job that fits you AND the people you are working for have good attitudes, are upbeat and supportive to their employees. I also love that my place of employment has so many opportunities, I seem to be doing different aspects of construction every day and I love it! They have even told me that they will set up a meeting to talk about full time work once my agency hours are fulfilled. I could not be happier.”
Thank you Kevin, and keep up the amazing work!
