After allowing her personal life to interfere with her employment, Ms. Treadway lost her job as a Senior Warehouse Manager with the Salvation Army. Knowing she had to support three children, Ms. Treadway entered Detroit Employment Solutions Corporation’s (DESC) PATH program eager to work; however, without professional clothing and going through a separation, Ms. Treadway knew she would need assistance.
Supportive services for clothing from Simply Fashion as well as Jackets for Jobs were provided for Ms. Treadway to ensure she had appropriate interview attire. Counseling services were provided by Lincoln to assist in learning different ways to cope with life’s obstacles, such as her recent separation from her husband.
Ms. Treadway, who interviews very well and always leaves a great impression, attended a Meijer hiring event hosted by Southwest Solutions. She was offered a position and, although her skillset is high, she took the role as an interim position to support her family.
Not willing to settle, she continued to work with DESC partner Southwest Solutions to gain a position where she could become self-sufficient, and has since obtained a job as a Production Supervisor with Sunset.
