Thank You Angy Vazquez | YES March Employee Spotlight

Angelica Vazquez is the YES Employee Spotlight for March and is one who definitely shines bright as an Account Manager for us! Angy is friendly, fun loving, dedicated, and is an extremely hard worker. We value her for the work she provides, but also for the smiles and laughs she creates along the way.

We asked Angy to answer 11 questions about work and life. Here’s what she had to say:

1. Five things you enjoy.
1. My family
2. Helping others
3. Food
4. Cosmetology
5. Nature/Experiencing new things

2. Three things you don’t.
1. Picking my nose due to the weather in UT
2. Omar eating MY food
3. Dishonest people

3. What do you like most about working at YES?
My co-workers they are so fun even when it can be crazy at times.

4. What do you think would make YES better?
Honestly I would not change anything. We have great management.

5. If you could meet anyone, who?
My great, great grandma (heart).

6. Your favorite place in the world.
It would be Egypt, even though I haven’t gone yet.

7. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you enjoy eating other people’s food?
If I don’t know the person, it will be like a 3. If I know the person then it will be a 10.

8. What is the number one challenge you face in your job?
Having to deal with people who choose to lie just to miss work.

9. What do you think is the best way to meet that challenge?
To talk to the employee and hopefully get through to them.

10. What would you tell someone looking into working with YES?
YES is a great company to work for. YES has great management, great co-workers and is a wonderful staffing agency. Your Employment Solutions is just amazing you’ll find out once you start working with us. I’ll let the company do the talking.

11. You’re about to become a mother. If the only two names left in the world that you were allowed to name your baby after were Reed Laws (president of YES) or Kerry Westenskow (vice president) which name would you choose?
Hmmm… it is pretty complicated. But I would have to combine them both. I would name the baby Rerry. ;)

Thank you so much for being such a solid member of our team, Angy! We’re looking forward to working with you for much longer than a year!

utah staffing employee spotlight

Thank You Arely Cardenas | YES February Employee Spotlight

Arely has been such a great addition to our team, and I know our client company feels the same. She has such a fun and caring personality, is dedicated to her job and her team, and does her very best at work each and every day to make ensure the client and the employees are taken care of. We are so very grateful for everything you bring to team, Arely, each and every day of the year, not just during this spotlight month!

We asked Arely to answer 11 questions about work and life. Here’s what she had to say:

1. Five things you enjoy.
1. Listening to music.
2. Writing.
3. Going for walks.
4. Doing homework with my kids.
5. Browse the net.

2. Five things you don’t.
1. Buying groceries.
2. Going outside in the cold.
3. Waking up super early.
4. People who get a boyfriend/girlfriend and disappear.
5. People who don’t like me.

3. What do you like most about working at YES?
Meeting people. There is always new people going into the office. You literally change people’s lives. Even though you can’t hire everyone, I can certainly help improve the chances and the experience of every applicant by finding their hidden skills, by answering their questions, and by calming them down through educating them so that they feel comfortable and prepared.

4. What do you think would make YES better?
I honestly don’t think there’s anything I can say Yes is already GREAT!!

5. If you could meet anyone, who?
My dad. I know most people would like to meet a celebrity, but I would want to meet my dad as I didn’t ever meet him or have a relationship with him, but he’s still my dad.

6. Your favorite place in the world.
Hawaii. I went on vacation in August a year ago and it was the best experience ever.

7. Starbucks or Dunkin’?
Starbucks any day!!! Please let my manager (Alejandra) know this.

8. What is the number one challenge you face in your job?
I would say getting the right candidates for the right position the first time.

9. What do you think is the best way to meet that challenge?
Getting to know the person and interview more direct as a friend not as a recruiter. To make the person feel comfortable and open up that way I can reflect on their needs.

10. What would you tell someone looking into working with YES?
I would say YES is the best place to work. They are always open to give chances and work hard to help people find the job that fits their needs and skills.

11. Who would be the better dancer at a mariachi dance party, Reed Laws, president of Your Employment Solutions, or vice president Kerry Westenskow? Why?
Hhhmmm… Good question. I can’t say, but I would sure love to see them dance, it would be funny to watch them battle.

P.S.

I just want to say thanks to YES for letting me be part of this team. It’s a great place to work! I am happy where I am and my great co-workers are more like family.

Arely, thanks for being you. You are amazing!
