WITH SUPPORT FROM COMPASS CAREER SOLUTIONS I KEEP PUSHING TO DO MY BEST
Jim came to Compass Career Solutions in 2017, eager to work and a drive like no other. He worked closely with Noemi, one of our Employment Specialists at Compass who advocated for the perfect job for Jim at Walmart.
He started as a merchandise stocker returning items that were misplaced throughout the store to their correct spot. Eventually, Jim wanted to expand his job skills with Walmart and ventured into a new position as a Janitorial/Maintenance employee with the assistance of Compass. He started with very simple tasks such as assisting the other janitorial staff in cleaning the restrooms, sweeping floors and cleaning windows. Over the last few months, Jim excelled and continued to push himself to be more independent from his coworkers. He now cleans all the restrooms in the store during his four-hour shift entirely on his own with simple reminders and encouragements, job tasks lists, and the support of his job coaches, and fellow coworkers. He has flourished.
Compass continues to assist Jim as needed with training, and keeping up with his schedule on the computer and continued job support as needed. Jim says, "Every once in a while, I will struggle at work, but with the support from my job coach Tessa, I keep pushing to do better. "
