Why did you choose a career in staffing?
I have always worked in Customer Service and Account Management. Almost 7 years ago, a Crown Services Manager reached out to me due to my resume on Career Builder. After interviewing with the General Manager and the Vice President I was intrigued by the structure and opportunities Crown Services offered their employees. Crown Services was the first company I had ever had the opportunity to work with that truly modeled” your hard work and efforts are truly rewarded through compensation and opportunity”.
What is your biggest accomplishment professionally? In 2018 I was able to surpass my goals and hit the 12 million target. My team and I worked very hard and were able to have a record year!
What is your biggest accomplishment personally? In the last 2 years, I have finally found a balance within my life. I was able to find a happy balance personally and professionally. By doing this it made both sides of my life better-rounded with happiness and success.
What is your biggest challenge? My biggest challenge has been realizing that not everyone works or moves at the same pace as I do. The current president, Jay Hodge, recently told me that “You have to find value in people Jamie. Do not expect the same out of everyone you work with. People tend to be better or more efficient at different things. Find their value and you will all be more successful”. Great advice and has helped me a lot.
What words of advice do you have for anyone in the staffing industry? In the staffing industry, it is all about building, maintaining and valuing your relationships. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Most importantly be honest and work with integrity.
