Rene 268x300 - Say 'Hello' to Rene B., Our Employee of the Month

After 6 years and 35 assignments, it is high time we recognized Rene B. for representing Philly Temps & Perm as well as each of the clients she has worked with, so well.

Rene is not only professional and eager to perform each task given to the best of her ability, she remains pleasant and upbeat under any circumstance. We can actually hear the smile in her voice when we call her for an assignment.

Our clients have shared nothing but praise for Rene, and we are proud to have her part of our Temp Family.

We recently had the chance to get to know Rene a little better.

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

Rene B (RB): I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA

PT: What was your work experience prior to working with Philly Temps?

RB: After graduating high school, I was employed in the banking industry and moved on to employment with Bell of Pennsylvania from 1970. My positions while employed at Bell of PA were clerical and I was promoted to a management position from which I retired in 1996.  After retirement, I worked in my church as well as a full-time Caregiver for Mother and Sister.

PT: How did you hear about Philly Temps?

RB: Learned of Philly Temps through internet while looking for temp agencies to supplement income while Caregiving.  Philly Temp allowed me to work around my schedule which was perfect for me at that time.

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

RB: In May, 2017, I was assigned to LightFair International Trade Show & Conference held at the Philadelphia Convention Center.  My position was as Administrative Assistant to Vice President.  This was a fun but challenging assignment.  Over 600 exhibits were on display and my tasks were to help staff set up Show Office to receive exhibitors, guests and company upper management. This was a fast-paced assignment and much of my time was spent alone in the Show Office.  Knowing how to handle irate exhibitors, frustrated attendees who stopped into the Show Office with various problem situations, a staff who had requests and expected quick results were a big part of the day.    My previous experiences with Philly Temp prepared me to meet the challenge of this assignment with confidence that it would be a win-win.  Also working as a Registration Rep could also be demanding but enjoyable.  Presently, my position at Salus University, as an Administrative Assistant is very rewarding.

PT: What are your long-term career goals?

RB: My long-term career goals are to continue with Philly Temps with the great assignments.  As a retiree, I enjoy keeping in touch with the business world, meeting new people, learning new things and staying active technology.  Philly Temps allows me to do that.

PT: What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?

RB: I enjoy travel out of state and country.  I try to take one big trip each year.  I enjoy trail walking and bike riding.  My favorite music is Jazz – especially outdoor Jazz concerts.

PT: What advice can you give to prospective candidates that want to work with Philly Temps?

RB: Develop a strong positive work ethic.  Be consistently on time.  Command your present skills while learning new skills.  Dress professionally from head-to-toe.  Give respect to earn respect.  Own each assignment – as if it were your own personal business.  You want each day to be a successful day!!
