Stephen got a new job!!!

Stephen was offered a job by the Hertz Corporation today! Hallelujah! God answers prayers, that's for sure - He is so awesome!

He is hired as a Location Manager for the facilities at the Austin Bergstrom International Airport. He along with 5 other managers will oversee about 120 employees at this location.


They are starting his background check and drug screen which can take about 4-10 days to clear. The City Manager, Rob, took Stephen around today to show him the facility. And he should start work sometime next week.

Stephen really feels he will fit in great with this company...and hopefully with his hard work ethics and charisma he will exceed with the company and they in turn shall reward him. Hertz is a long standing company, since 1918...so there is great potential for growth. I found this on their webpage and found it very interesting...
