Staffanation Star Sakina: Making Her Way to Warehouse Administrator

“Staffanation said I deserved a second chance. They really care about people,” says Sakina, an employee we recently placed in a warehouse administrator position.

“In her interview, we saw her true potential and eagerness to find her dream job,” says Nichol Phillips, Staffanation’s operations manager. Unfortunately, Sakina wasn’t able to pass the pre-screening criteria for a job. “My background had some stains on it,” she says.  

Moving Forward

Despite her past mistakes and criminal record, we searched for a temp-to-hire position that would help Sakina stay on track. One of the local companies Staffanation works with had changed their policy on hiring people with past felonies. The company was willing to overlook Sakina’s record from 15 years ago. We set her up to interview for a warehouse position that matched her skill set. Sakina recalls. “I am so grateful to Staffanation.”

Two interviews later, Sakina was offered a temp-to-hire job. “She was so excited when she found out that the company wanted her to start training the very next week,” Nichol says. “She could not thank our team enough.” 

Persistence Pays Off

Sakina’s story shows that Staffanation refuses to give up on candidates who deserve a chance to move forward with a job. Another way we go the extra mile is through our American Dream Program. As part of this assistance program, employees meet each month for free with our Dream Coach, Jeri Lewis. Felony expungement is another step we help employees take. 

Dream coaching is a unique perk that Sakina has found beneficial. “I love working with Jeri,” Sakina says. “She motivates me and keeps me encouraged and reminded that I can reach my goals.” 

“Sakina really is a star,” Jeri, our dream coach says. “She’s working so hard to achieve her goals. She’s enthusiastic and inspiring.”
