“It’s good to have a full time job, knowing that when I get up in the morning, I am guaranteed to go to work.”

Ray Ray completed one of the first Jobs for Life classes in 2006 and a personal finance course in 2007. He has worked as part of the Advance Memphis staff and through the Advance Memphis Staffing Program, always remaining an important part of our team. In 2013, Ray Ray went to work at National Guard Products. He quickly proved himself to be a consistent and dependable employee and was offered a permanent position in less than a year.
