Kevin and William both completed our last YMA Training and worked with DeeDee Jones, MR’s Industry Coordinator, to find good jobs. They both applied to Novolex Duro Bag in Alsip, IL, but only Kevin was called back for an interview. Kevin relies on William, who owns a car, for transportation. Kevin’s interview went well but he was concerned about not being able to get to work if his brother ended up getting a job somewhere else. DeeDee advised Kevin to let the company know about his situation and let them know that William also completed the same YMA training. The company asked Kevin to go get his brother for an interview and both were made offers to start as Machine Operators making $19.21/hour on the 2nd Shift. Both brothers have already completed their first 30 days on the job which they are very happy with.
