YES Employee Spotlight | June 2017

YES Staffing Employees are the Best Professionals in Utah!

For our June employee spotlight we’d like to shout out to someone who deserves to be recognized far more often than he is. Adam Perea!

utah staffing employee spotlight

Thank You Adam Perea | YES June Employee Spotlight

Adam works as our swing shift on-site manager at one of our largest clients in Ogden. He doesn’t work the typical 8-5, which makes it hard for our offices to recognize his work sometimes, but Adam is an extremely valuable asset to our team. He is dedicated, reliable, hard working, friendly, funny, and such a great team player.

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

1. Five things you enjoy.

  1. Concerts
  2. College Football
  3.  Riding my RZR
  4. Oregon football
  5. Summer season

2. Three things you don’t.

  1. Dishonest people
  2.  Bad drivers
  3. Indian food

3. What do you like most about working at YES?
Support from management. Being on the night shift I know they are a phone call away with any issues I run in to.

4. What do you think would make YES better?
To continue what YES does. I witnessed the Fresenius account start up from the beginning to where we are at now and to see how far we have gone in just shy of a year shows what kind of a company YES is and how much they value their customers.

5. If you could meet anyone, who?
Jonathan Davis from the band Korn.

6. Your favorite place in the world.
The mountains with some good trails.

7. If you had to choose between the Ducks winning a national title or selling your RZR, which would you choose?
Ducks winning the natty!

8. What is the number one challenge you face in your job?
Being forgetful at finishing tasks. There is a lot that goes on at Fresenius that you forget to complete those tasks when being added other tasks, it can get crazy.

9. What do you think is the best way to meet that challenge?
Take notes of the tasks and go back and make sure they get completed then cross them off after they are completed.

10. What would you tell someone looking into working with YES?
They will be well taken care of and they will see how much different YES is compared to other agencies and to come in and find out for themselves.

11. You’re a fan of Metallica and other classic metal bands. Who would make a better headbanger? The president of YES Reed Laws or YES’ CFO Kerry Westenskow? Why?
Reed because team Fresenius was in a proposal meeting with Reed and Jarum and Reed was looking on the calendar and he saw that I was off for the Def Leppard concert and he started singing “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard in front of us. It was pretty funny!

Thank you Adam for all that you do, you’re amazing!

YES Employee Spotlight | May 2017

YES Employees are the Best Staffing People in Utah!

May is a month that resembles spring here in the Northern Hemisphere. Springtime brings about change and growth in ourselves and our surroundings. Our May employee spotlight, Jordyn Poll, is someone who exhibits those traits very well!

utah staffing employee spotlight

Thank You Jordyn Poll | YES May Employee Spotlight

Jordyn has held a variety of positions during her time with us here at YES, and we find great value in her adaptability and eagerness for learning and personal development. Her growth in the last couple of years has been so great to watch and be apart of. We are so grateful for her flexibility and that her desire for development reaches far beyond herself, too, as she helps our company continually grow as well.

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

1. Five things you enjoy.
One Tree Hill, summer, chocolate chip cookies, accounting, and lipstick; oh and my husband too.

2. Three things you don’t.
Closed toed shoes, spiders, and mornings.

3. What do you like most about working at YES?
I like building relationships with people. I also really like knowing that by helping people find jobs that it helps them provide for their families.

4. What do you think would make YES better?
I think YES is pretty awesome, but I am not a morning person, so I would have to say work not starting until at least 9 am.

5. If you could meet anyone, who?
Tim McGraw because he’s hot and I love his music.

6. Your favorite place in the world.
Definitely Toronto, Canada. I think YES should open an office up there so it gives me an excuse to live there for the rest of forever.

7. What kind of cows make chocolate milk, which ones make strawberry milk, and which ones make almond milk?
Well, chocolate milk comes from brown cows and strawberry milk comes from pink cows, but I’m not too sure about almond milk…

8. What is the number one challenge you face in your job?
Not getting frustrated when people don’t show up for work or don’t take the job very seriously.

9. What do you think is the best way to meet that challenge?
I think doing a better job at helping them realize why their specific job is important and that they are needed just as badly as everyone else will help. If people feel important and wanted I think they will take the job more seriously.

10. What would you tell someone looking into working with YES?
We will do everything that we can to make sure you get the best job available for you, but it’s up to you to make the most out of it.

11. We hear you won a national championship in high school with your cheerleading team. Who would make the better cheerleader on your team, and who would have been cut, the President of YES Reed Laws or YES’ CFO Kerry Westenskow? Why?
I heard that Reed used to be a gymnast, so I’d have to go with Reed. Besides, I think Kerry is a bit too quiet to be a cheerleader. I’d like to see both of them with bows in their hair though!

Thank you for all that you do here at YES, Jordyn. You’re amazing!

WELL, if they are with me there’s nothing to worry about because I could take a bear down. Lol. If they ventured off from me I guess whoever is the slowest runner! Probably Reed, he has shorter legs. :D
