Choosing one employee is never easy.

December 1st, 2016

Because Philly Temps Staff is the best in the city, selecting just one employee to showcase each month is a challenge, but we know that our Employee of the Month for December 2016, Josh P. is worthy of the distinction.

Although Josh is one of our most reserved employees, don’t let the soft spoken tone fool you. His Diligence, Professionalism, Abilities and Customer Service Skills are easily understood.

From his assignments doing Data Entry, Reception and Mail Room to his time registering Convention Attendees and Greeting the Olympic Teams at the Airport, Josh has represented Philly Temps and our clients superbly.

Thank you for all of your hard work Josh, and thank you for answering the questions that help us to know you just a little better!

PhillyTemps (PT): How long have you lived in the Philadelphia, PA area?

Josh P. (JP): I first came to Philadelphia in 2011 to attend college. After a few years of splitting my time between the city and my hometown in Lancaster County, I finally settled in Philadelphia in 2014.

PT: How did you hear about Philly Temps?

JP: I was looking around for entry-level clerical work shortly after graduating from college. Some searching online led me to Philly Temps.

PT: What is your previous work experience?

JP: When I’m not working at events or in offices for Philly Temps, I’m an annotator at a linguistic research lab, which essentially means I’m doing much of the grunt work on research projects.

PT: What are your long term career goals?

JP: I intend to pursue a master’s degree in either library science or museum studies and eventually find work in, you guessed it, a library or a museum.

PT: What is your life like outside of work? What are your hobbies? Are you involved in your community?

JP: I play drums in a few bands and have a studio where my band-mates and I help singer-songwriters record their songs with a band behind them. I spend my “off” time writing and recording music and touring around the country.

PT: How has working as a temp been helpful to you?

JP: Working as a temp has given me some unique work experience, but has also allowed me to pursue other hobbies and interests that I don’t receive a paycheck for.

PT: Has working as a temp changed your mind about your long term career goals? Inspired you in any way? Motivated to achieve more?

JP: My temp work has mostly shown me that I’m capable of much more than I typically give myself credit for. I started working for Philly Temps with a very small comfort zone, and while that may not have grown substantially, I have learned that stepping outside of it is an exhilarating and fulfilling experience.

PT: Please share your most memorable experience working for Philly Temps.

JP: It’s going to be tough to top working for the Democratic National Convention. I met a lot of interesting people, did many things that I couldn’t have imagined myself doing before, and worked harder in that week than I had in a long time. At the end of it, I was thoroughly exhausted, but very proud of what I’d been able to accomplish.
