Hear from our members across the state
By Emmanuel G.
After two students completed the first session of the Job Readiness Class at Catholic Charities, we tried to find them jobs and suggested they apply at Walmart. One of our team members helped them with their job applications. After being accepted for the job, I went to help them with orientation by interpreting in their language and showing them how to do the task their jobs required. After a few weeks, I talked to the managers to ask how they were doing. The managers said that they were doing very well. Our students fit in well at Walmart and they like to work there.
