When Jeremy and his family relocated from Virginia to Washington, Jeremy needed to find a new job. They reached out to Vadis for Employment Services to help make that happen.

Jeremy had a strong desire to work in a retail environment and was leaning heavily toward home improvement stores. His family often shopped in the warehouse-style improvement stores so it was both familiar and comfortable to Jeremy.

His biggest challenge in finding a job was the interview process. His nerves would often get the best of him, exacerbating his tremors.

Jeremy has a great smile and it caught the attention of the store manager at Home Depot. He took the time during the interview to see past the nerves and listened as Jeremy was open about the tremors he experiences. He took note of his work experience and skills — and offered him the job.

Jeremy says that he likes that his job keeps him busy and he most enjoys working in the receiving dock and garden shop areas, although, he is happy to help anywhere he is needed. When his manager asked if he would be interested in learning to make keys, he quickly answered yes, never one to turn down a chance to improve and expand his work skills.

He is reliable and a very hard worker. The many employee appreciation awards he has received are a testament to that. His greatest honor, however, came when he was asked to train a new team member. His supervisor’s trust in his knowledge and abilities meant a lot to him.

Jeremy has been employed at Home Depot for two years and still enjoys recounting stories about the customers he is able to help each day.

Jeremy found a supportive employer that helps him bring out the best in himself. A perfect match.
