Chris Atwood began his progression from an entry level position to management roles when Unistress CEO noticed his stellar work performance and recognized his aptitude.
“I started as a driver for a vendor and moved to Unistress to become the house hauler when Perri called me out to management and said, ‘This isn’t a truck driver.’ Three weeks later, I became a dispatcher.”
Atwood hasn’t stopped at his own career advancement, recruiting family members into roles with Unistress as well. “My son has been here for nine years, and my two nephews are in steelworks and the batch plant.”
“Doing a good job – starting with showing up and being willing to contribute however is needed,” Atwood says is the key to building confidence among co-workers and leadership. “The thing about Unistress is they treat you like real human beings… The work doesn’t come easy.” He goes on, “I love working here. It’s the people. This is where I belong.”
