Congratulations to Manuel, ROLINC’s “Bullseye! Employee Spotlight Award” winner for January 2017!
Through ROLINC, Manuel now has a job in a new field that he loves while still using his years of experience. And it’s a small world as it turns out! Manuel learned that some of the parts he’s working on are actually parts he’s made in a previous position.
“We built the circuit boards that we use here. I was surprised that I’m working with the same product,” Manuel said. “Now I’m a machine operator on the plastic molding machines. I like the experience that I’m getting. “
Manuel worked in electronics for over 30 years, starting with his college degree in electronic technology. His training continued during his next 4 years in the Navy as an electronic technician, and he then started a long career in circuit board assembly and hand soldering.
Manuel mentioned that he most enjoys his newfound work-life balance so he can spend his time at home doing what he loves – reading how-to books and learning to grow his best garden yet.
“I like the hours. It’s 10 hours a day, 4 days a week, which is great.”
Since starting in July, Manuel was given the opportunity to gain more training before getting hired on. He was nominated by our partner company as they can see that he takes his job seriously and really cares about his work in production.
“He took it as a good challenge, and it shows that he has pride in his job,” said the company’s CFO, who nominated Manuel. They are looking forward to offering him a position with their company at the next available opportunity.
In addition to a custom plaque, Manuel won a $50 Visa gift card to recognize his achievements.
Great job, Manuel! We’re proud that you represent ROLINC Staffing, and keep up the great work!
