Kristie Madigan began her journey with Goodwill Industries on April 22, 1998 completing small assembly jobs and was content until 2014, when we introduced the Pro-Vocational Program, which offered an opportunity for individuals at our Commercial Services location to be trained in the Work Adjustment Training Program and then placed on a job in the community.
Kristie completed the Pre-Voc program and moved over to the WAT program in November 2014. She graduated successfully from WAT April 30, 2015 and was placed on a job through the SMS Company performing janitorial work at the Broadway Square Mall in Tyler, Tx. She has been successfully employed in this position for over a year.
Kristie has been able to overcome her learning disability and take instruction on the tasks she needs to complete in order to be sufficient in her role for SMS.
This has allowed her to do well and maintain her position within the company.
Although Kristie has had behind the scenes difficulties in her life, she does have a positive attitude at work and with customers. This is vital to retain her job.
“Kristie Madigan is an exceptional employee for SMS. She pays attention to detail, she cleans places that no other employee sees, she is always on time and does not call off work. I am proud to have her on our SMS team, her work ethics and attitude are greatly appreciated, she always has a smile on her face,” Broadway Square Mall Facility ManagerAngela Waldrep.
