Sometimes getting a job is a process. We often say at Reliance Staffing & Recruiting that we are a bridge to permanent employment, and sometimes it just takes perseverance. No one represents this better than Sharniqua Blanks, who through her determination, work ethic, and infectious optimism, is now a full-time employee of Rockbottomgolf.com in Suffolk.
Blanks actually began working with Rockbottomgolf.com many years ago with a different staffing agency. But after a move and return from Georgia, which included a four year gap, and her own drive and focus, she has been hired permanently by Rock Bottom as a key employee on their shipping team.
“I started using Reliance because I heard that it was a good staffing company,” Blanks told us. “Reliance sends you to good job sites, with many jobs having temp-to-hire as an option; often, it’s just dependent on your work performance. I also had family members who have worked with Reliance and got good feedback from them. So, that’s why I chose to work with them.”
Sharniqua’s mother, Yvandria Boone, is also working with Reliance and encouraged her to use us as an option.
“With Reliance, I liked how nice and polite the people were for my interview. Just the way that they treated me and the questions that they asked,” she said.
And Rockbottomgolf.com also appreciated the effort provided by our Suffolk branch at staffing their employment needs.
“Our partnership with Reliance Staffing dates back more than six years,” said Charlie DeSio, director of operations. “The account managers at Reliance, Stephanie Lamb and Katey Brooks, have always done a good job communicating with us, both positive and negative. We always know what to expect ahead of time.”
And with Blanks that conversation continued. Once she was reassigned to Rock Bottom through Reliance, she excelled.
“Sharniqua has always shown dedication and leadership abilities. We’re glad she’s now a permanent employee and I wish we had more employees like her,” said DeSio. “She also has a desire to get the job done right the first time and the ability to take charge. She understands the importance of customer satisfaction and strives for success.”
Rockbottomgolf.com is one of the top discount golf retailers in the world with a core philosophy to provide golfers with incredible deals on top quality golf equipment. The company buys huge lots of closeout merchandise, keeps overhead low, leverages technology and then passes the savings to the consumer.
Blanks probably put it best and most succinctly, “We sell everything when it comes to golf – shoes, socks, bags, golf carts – everything!”
As a supervisor, Blanks is responsible for printing out orders, sorting the orders, and getting the orders to the line so the packers can pack the shipment.
“I have to make sure everyone I’m responsible for is doing what they’re supposed to be doing in addition to doing my job.”
“I love working here,” Blanks said. “I like the warehouse scenery. People are polite. I have a great relationship with my coworkers. And, as long as you do your job, things go well.
“I also have a stable income now, I’m able to provide for my kids and my family, I have a reliable car, and just being able to live and enjoy life! I can take my kids out and have the extra income to enjoy that – just living life!”
