The New Year typically brings health and wellness goals to the forefront of people’s minds, so it’s certainly been a busy time for former Parker Staffing contractor, Dasia Altheimer, who just converted from contractor into a fulltime employee at Healthways in Bellevue. As an Engagement Specialist, Dasia provides support and guidance to potential and existing members of Heathways through positive communication via phone.
Luckily, we were able to snag a few minutes of Dasia’s time to ask her a few questions about her role and what she’s enjoyed most about it. It’s our hope that by having Dasia share her experience in a customer service/call center environment, it will give other customer service professionals in the Seattle area inspiration as they look ahead to the future of their careers.
My favorite thing about my current job has to be my co-workers (including my manager). I work with nothing but positive, supportive and friendly people who come to work just as excited as I do each and every day.
The most positive experience I’ve had at my job so far is when the whole office I work in went to buy gifts at Target for underprivileged children. We all went to Target in groups, we were given a card with a child’s name, their want/need for Christmas and a budget to stay within.
I discovered Parker on Craigslist.com in the Job posting section.
The advice I would like to give someone who is taking on their first contract role, is to take the job seriously. Try getting involved in the company you work for. Make friends with your co-workers. Come to work every day with a smile and positive attitude. You never know if your contract position can turn into a permanent one.
Star Wars/Star Trek? Star Wars
A relaxing vacation or an adventure getaway? Relaxing vacation
A home in the city or the country? A home in the city
Starbucks or independent? Starbucks
Thanks for taking the time to speak with us today, Dasia. We wish you the best of luck in your new, permanent position at Healthways!
