We all appreciate the US military and the veterans that have protected our freedom. In addition, we all want to give back to them as we are indebted for their time serving. Even so, I believe the calling may be even more, when are you sewn from that seed. When you have served in the military, you have a better understanding and empathy for those that are serving, and, in turn, your calling may be much stronger. Michael Gallo joined Apollo, as a veteran, and finds himself being fulfilled supporting his brothers in the United States Military. Please find his story below:
Prior to working with Apollo, what were you looking for in a career?
Prior to working with Apollo, my career goal was to work in the aviation industry. I served as a helicopter mechanic for five years in the United States Marine Corps, and want to further advance with a career in aviation.
How did you find out about Apollo?
I found out about Apollo through a senior Sikorsky Aircraft employee who has personally dealt with Apollo contractors in the past. Due to previous Apollo contractors’ success with Sikorsky, he spoke highly of Apollo and recommended I consider applying for the position.
How did your experience with Apollo compare to what you expected or experienced with other staffing firms?
My experience with Apollo has been very successful. All of the Apollo representatives, including Carolyn Pelletier, have been professional, and have guided me to success.
What excites you most about your current job?
What excites me most about my current job is that I know what I am doing is supporting the United States military.
Is there anyone specifically at Apollo that you would like to thank?
I would like to personally thank Carolyn Pelletier. Carolyn was very helpful in guiding me through the hiring process, making the transition smooth and successful.
What else would you like us to know?
I would like to also thank everyone at Apollo for their professional guidance and help with finding a career that is best fit for me. Carolyn spent a lot of time updating me with information about the hiring process and promptly answered every question I had. My experience with Apollo has made it easy for me to refer to friends to consider for employment.
Michael has done double duty not only serving in the US military, but also supporting those who are currently serving. I think all of us need to give him a big “thank you”!
