Got promoted to Store Manager

I’ve been working at Dollar General for about 11 months now working really hard. I started as a retail associate and moved up to key-holder and then assistant manager and just found out that I’m going to be moved to a nearby store and be the store manager! I told my mom and she was really excited for me to finally start my career! Just wanted to share that it is possible for people to get an entry level job here and then move up!!

BELIEVE in You/ Get hired

I want to highlight the importance of believing in yourself! I went into a job interview believing in myself and got hired. Of course, it could have went the opposite direction and that's okay too! I believe we all have a perfect place to use our gifts. The key is not to get discouraged! We are created perfectly! And sometimes if we are told, "no" it's because we are being led to greater things. Keep moving forward and give thanks for every opportunity along the way

FANTASTIC Week!

Hello gang! This week was my best week so far in 2019. I have remained steadfast, consistently self determined and cheerfully optimistic in pursuit of my employment expectations. I let nothing stop or sidetract me from my aim. Like a sharp shooter I stayed focused. I battle the waether...cold...ice...snow and freezing rain. I spent endless hours up and down Interstates and highways in Missouri. Experienced brief spells of homelessness. Sleeping in my car. My diet consisted of peanutbutter and jelly sandwiches with leamon water, raw asparagus and spinach. At times all I could afford was cup of soups or top ramen noodles. All this went on for a period of about two and a half months. I was only able to land one job in St Louis through Patriots Temp service. Which was a brief ten days. I witnessed so many people lost and homeless, unemployed and being corralled like catte through the state agencies. I witnessed the mentally ill drifting helpless in the streets. Even my own mother at age 70 walked off her job because the employer attempted to undermine my moms integrity. But all this is now in the past. All this is meaningful to my understandig of lfe in many areas that before I had no experience with. But I discovered solutions that worked for me and not against me. And in some cases I was even able to help a few people with some solution's that benifited them. I Ask for nothing in return other than to remember my name: Paris Taylor and I continued my path. Im now full time employed with a great company who produces the greatest batteries in the world: NorthStar Batteries. Here in SPRINGFIELD MO. I am proud to represent them. If anyone is looking for a great company to grow with Northstar is a great company to prospect. They are expanding and need more production and assemblely employees. The pay is weekly, 401k and other benifits. See the thing about me is: " I learned along time ago how to survive...but now I know how to thrive" "The mind IS the most greast tool we have but, its value is based on the use we make of it" Focus..refect and think deep.

Answered Prayer! God is good!

It's been 9 months now since I lost my job. I am a single mother with a son in college and it's been very challenging. I finally got a job offer after only 5 face to face interviews and 100's of applications. I am so thankful that My God provided for me and kept me in his hand. I prayed everyday and gave him thanks for a better opportunity and he did just that even though my bank is very low, I am so grateful. So to all of you who feels like nothing will happen don't give up keep applying and being positive eventually a door will open. Blessings and peace to you all!

I landed the job

I've been in Philadelphia since December and i had been looking for work. I go on a job interview but as i walk in the power goes out! I knew instantly to just keep going. So i sign in and ask where the stairwell is. I look at my paper it says the 12th floor. So i proceed to walk the flights of steps and i stop on the 5th floor because im tired. I open the door because i was about to give up. I look around and realize the elevators are still down so i just go back in the stairwell and proceed to walk up the other flight of steps. I figured what was the use in giving up when i need a job so i kept pushing. I finally make it up to the 12th floor and the receptionist isn't at her desk she had just stepped away. A lady went and found her and told her i was there for my interview and told her what i did. That became the talk of the office immediately. She notified the hiring manager to let her know i had arrived but she was on the 9th floor. So i had to walk down to that floor. When i got there she immediately told the floor what i did. They were all saying you're hired! I'm thinking okay i just wanted to get to my interview on time. Needless to say i interviewed great and landed the job. I start next month and im glad i kept going instead of giving up.
