Myron came to Goodwill needing help. Although he had a criminal background, gaps in his work history and no driver’s license, he was ready to work. After completing Job Readiness classes, he enrolled in the Transitional Work Program. Myron took the initiative to learn all facets of the Goodwill Operations Warehouse and also obtained his forklift certification. He is a team player who assists both co-workers and management to get the job done. Since working at Goodwill, Myron was able to obtain a driver’s license, a vehicle and his CDL license. Hired initially as a material hander at Goodwill Operations, Myron was quickly promoted to a Class A Driver. Most recently, he has been promoted once again to Donation Services Supervisor. Myron aspires to one day become a business owner, operating a mid-size trucking company.
Goodwill’s Transitional Work Program gave me a chance. I have been able to set personal and employment goals and have worked hard to achieve them.
