5 1/2 Years with Glick

Q: How did you get started with the Glick Company? Why have you stayed?

A: The company where I previously worked outsourced the entire HR department in 2012. Just a week later while searching for a new position, I came across the posting for a human resources administrator at Glick. After reading the job posting, it seemed the perfect balance of what I loved about the HR world. After just one phone interview, I knew Glick was the place I was meant to be!

Q: Talk about someone at Glick who really influenced your time with the company.

A: One of the people who has really influenced me at the company is Holly Holm. Not only did she train me when I started, but she has been a constant mentor along my Glick journey. She’s someone I can always turn to with questions or bounce ideas off of, whether it be work-related or personal.

Q: Why would you tell someone to work for Glick?
