Kudos to Elwood Staffing and HMA
Editor, The Daily Home
In Dec. 2008, the printing company to which I had given 40 years of dedicated service, closed its doors after merging with a larger printer.
Without warning, I and 250 other workers were thrust into the nightmarish world of unemployed and lost benefits.
For eight long months, I sent out scores of resumes, filled out dozens of job applications, and went through numerous job interviews. I drove over 3,000 miles around this state seeking employment.
In the summer of 2009, I had all but resigned myself to the belief that, although able-bodied, no one was going to hire a 60-year-old man whose only skills were that of a commerical printer.
In August 2009, Elwood Staffing ran their ad in this paper for those who would consider temporary employment at Honda (HMA). In the depths of despair and seemingly at the end of a very short rope, I applied for those jobs at Elwood. After a two-week whirlwind of activity (testing, applications, background checks, physicals, etc.) I was afforded a job working on HMA assembly lines building Honda Pilot SUVs and Accord sedans.
I am very proud to announce that after 18 months of hard work and perfect attendance, HMA has granted me full-time employment and benefits.
If you are able-bodied and truly desire a job, Elwood Staffing is the one place you should contact. This company does not discrimiate whatsoever in placing people in the job market. Their hiring practices are beyond reproach, as are HMA's.
This state, especially central Alabama, is very fortunate indeed to be the home of such a dynamic industry as Honda Manufacturing of Alabama and an employment service like Elwood Staffing Inc.
