Richard “Ricky” has been working as a data entry clerk at ConnectTo Communications, a cable provider in Glendale, for over a decade! Ricky was placed by one of the supported employment job developers at Westview Services who negotiated with the company’s owners to customize Ricky’s job tasks to match his abilities, interests and needs. The job developer also advocated for Ricky so that he could work a set schedule with extensive job coaching and other accommodations that have helped him succeed in his position. Ricky always enjoys his data entry tasks, always tries to complete them to the best of his ability, and is always happy when his totals match at the end of the day! Ricky strives for exceptional accuracy and quality and his job coach provides a lot of support so that he can continue to improve both his hard and soft skills. Ricky likes working and also likes working out — he regularly takes “exercise breaks” when he needs a break from his computer!
Kai has been working his whole life! From putting out trashcans for neighbors to gardening to washing cars, Kai had it covered! He is now using that focus and enthusiasm to succeed in his job as an online shopper at Amazon/Whole Foods. With support from his job developer at Westview Services, Kai learned how to fill out job applications, ace interviews, and be prepared for employer expectations in the workplace. Kay received assistance from Westview’s job coach to learn his tasks as assigned by the employer and succeed in his position. He works a lot of hours and is saving up his paychecks so that he can buy a LEAF electric car! Somehow, Kai still finds time to create artwork for companies that he likes, including Amtrak (his favorite!). It turns out that Amtrak likes Kai right back and has frequently displayed his work on its trains! Kai’s favorite Amtrak routes? The Coast Starlight from Los Angeles to Seattle and the Pacific Coast Surfliner.
Brian began working with Westview Services just after Thanksgiving in 2016 and has never looked back. His supported employment job developer soon placed him as a courtesy clerk at VONS and, with assistance from his vocational specialist, he has proved to be a reliable, motivated and hardworking member of the team. After three years at the front end, Brian’s supervisors asked him to try out barista duties at the store’s Starbucks kiosk and, with coaching assistance, he soon did a great job there, too. So when a position recently became available at the kiosk, management decided to promote him and he is now brewing up lots of coffee 25 to 30 hours per week! Brian likes working at Starbucks (and his pay increase!) and continues to be a valued member of the team.
