“When people walk in there, Jeremy [Hasty] always introduces himself to them and treats them right,” Mr. Reid explained. “I was waiting to see Pat Nelson once and he asked me to come eat lunch with him. That meant a lot, that he would invite a homeless person to eat at the same table with him. At some places, you get negative vibes. But they were all positive at The Job Post. Confidence grows when that happens.”
His first job through The Job Post was working for Gill Manufacturing. While he liked the job, the company moved to a location that was too far away for him to travel. But he still wanted to work and found himself back at The Job Post.
After Patrick moved on to another job, Jeremy took over working with Mr. Reid to find the right job for him. After listening to his desires and searching the openings they had, Jeremy suggested he try working for SoundTech. The job was in the fiberglass area and involved gluing parts.
Mr. Reid had been waiting for Section 8 housing downtown and they had just called to say they had something available when Jeremy told him about the SoundTech opportunity. Despite the chance that he could lose that housing if he made too much money, he applied anyway, aced the interview, and landed the job.
