When most people think of staffing agencies, they think of strictly temporary work. The truth is many people have found life-long careers thanks to companies like Express. More and more workers are enjoying the flexibility in their schedule from working with staffing agencies. Employers are also relying more on staffing agencies to fill their open positions before hiring full-time for openings.
Our most recent associate spotlight showcases one of those individuals who finds pride in working with Express as a career for many years. Associates like the ones we showcase are a testament to how work ethic and positive attitude can go a long way in your profession, even in the roughest of economic conditions.
Jimmy Maher started working for the Greensboro, NC Express office in 1992 as a lawn and building maintenance technician. During his time with Express, Jimmy worked with five different clients. Throughout Jimmy’s nearly 20-year career with Express, he worked for a single client for 14 years. In that time, Jimmy’s commitment and enthusiasm were apparent because he didn’t own a car and had to take the bus to work from one side of town to the other.
Over the years, Jimmy was given many raises due to his integrity and dependability. When he celebrated his ten year anniversary with Express, he was given a cash bonus for his loyalty to Express, its clients, and his job.
“Jimmy is a man who believes in hard work, doing the right thing, and being responsible. He was a shining example to others on the job,” said Hope Daniel, Front Office Coordinator of the Greensboro Express office.
When Jimmy decided to retire, the client did not want him to leave. They knew they would be losing a cherished employee. The client wanted him so badly, Jimmy decided to extend his retirement date three times and keep working to aid the client. He is now happily retired and settling down after a fulfilled career.
We are very grateful for having Jimmy as a part of the Express family for so many years. The Greensboro office will miss him, and everyone at Express wishes him the very best in his retirement and future achievements.
