As an employee for NFR for the last 6 years, I have not only grown as a professional, but as an individual. I started with this company as an entry-level employee fresh out of college. During those years, I have learned the importance of being a team player, and being compassionate about my career, & my fellow co-workers.
I have learned how to raise ‘red flags’ and ask questions when a personal and/or – more... professional issue needs to be addressed. Upper management is willing to listen with open ears and assist in resolving any concerns or questions I have. Keep in mind, NFR offers competitive wages, benefits, etc as many full time employers would, so this is not the only reason to become part of this company. NFR does so much for their staff and the community. We do outside of work gatherings, such as bbq’s, canoe trips, end of year parties and more. We also give back to the community. We designate teams to assist and help local families during the holidays and even through out the year. We raise money to help struggling families make ends meet during Thanksgiving and Christmas, we have a donation committee to contribute to local sports, organizations, & charities. It’s an amazing feeling that at the end of that you’ve helped a teammate, a family, or simply a client.
On a personal level, they’re have been many amazing & tragic events that have happened to me during the 6 years employed by NFR: death of loved ones, marriage, purchase of my 1st home, a miscarriage, the birth of my son, and health issues with family members where my support was needed. NFR’s management and staff were supportive during these times & they came together & made me feel like “there’s no place like NFR”- I received condolences, congratulations, flowers, & compassion from my fellow colleagues and managers during these times.
So would I or have I recommended someone to apply for an NFR position. Absolutely, hands down with out a doubt. NFR cares about their staff as employees AND as people! – less
