Honest Jobs for honest people
It’s not often that I come across a company like this one. I first contacted them Sunday, it’s Monday and I have a couple personal emails from one of their Employment/Outreach Specialists welcoming me and giving me an update on my application.
The CEO Harley Blakeman started the company I wanted to start a few years ago, however he did it so with any luck I will get to work for him.
Did I mention these guys are in the business to help people like me that have been “affected” by the criminal justtice system. Staticstically if you hired me, I would rarely if ever miss work.
My level of loyalty would be beyond measure, And it’s likely I would outperform my coworkers. My appreciation for the opportunity would be well, great.
Why, well that’s very simple I have applied for 332 jobs in the past year – almost one a day! I’ve had 34 interviews, 5 offer letters and 5 withdrawl letters citing my background as an issue. So I got the job, I had an offer, a start date and I was in one case parked out front 30 minutes early, excited to start my first day. My father raised me to be pragmatic, “son life isn’t fair, stop fucking crying and get on with it.” Good ol’ Bill Cummins, I miss that mofo.
