Bree Taylor-Walling is the type of success story employees at Apollo love to read. Over the past 5 years, Bree has been earning her stripes in the production environment – from humble beginnings – working her way up at a company from a Production Associate, Production Lead, to Production Control Coordinator; however, the ladder for progress at her company ended there. On her search for the next step in her career path she came in contact with Apollo Professional Solutions and was able to secure a new position that was not only more financially stable, but has given her the opportunity to gain experience with a revered company in the aerospace industry. Below is her story:
Prior to working with Apollo, what were you looking for in a career?
Prior to working for Apollo I was looking for a career that I could really enjoy doing, but didn’t demand so much of my time. I am very dedicated to what I do and I take pride in knowing that performing my job to the best of my abilities has a big impact on the reliability of the products I build at the end result; especially knowing that the end result means keeping planes in the air or protecting out military. My last job was very demanding of my time and energy and took a toll on my self as well as my family. I was looking for a good balance, a job where i can be dedicated and make a difference but still be able to be with my family at the end of the day.
How did you find about Apollo?
I found a job listing on career builder and I applied for it. Apollo contacted me about it since the job was through them.
How did your experience with Apollo compare to what you expected or experienced with other staffing firms?
Apollo has been great to work with. Everyone I have spoken with at Apollo has been really nice and able to answer any and all questions I have had. Since this is my first time working with a staffing firm I found Apollo very informative and easy to work with.
What excites you most about your current job?
I love my current job through Apollo. The environment at my current job is awesome and really helping me to expand my knowledge about the Aerospace Industry. I feel like this job was the next step in my career and I love all the new experiences.
What is one thing you have learned there (tangible/intangible) that you plan to carry on into the future?
Everyday I learn something new at my current job. Even through its only been two weeks since I started I find that Im learning more about the products I used to build at my old job while applying the knowledge I have to fulfill my role in my new position. So the knowledge I am gaining at my current position will carry on into my future career endeavors.
In there anyone specifically at Apollo that you would like to thank?
Nick Curtin has been my contact through this process and I would like to thank him for being so helpful and supportive in this experience.
What else would you like us to know?
I was totally shocked when I found out I had gotten the job I applied for and that the company was really excited about bringing me on. It really boosted my confidence in myself and helped me to start a new path in my career.
