Three years ago I was hired by Tarmac as a receptionist, working part time in their Inglis office. I was already work- ing one part-time job, so the extra work with Tarmac was really helpful. It allowed me to work full time, which is hard to do in this economy since there just aren't many good jobs available.
My job with Tarmac was even more important when I got laid off from my other job two years ago. Knowing the financial difficulty I would have only working part time, Tarmac increases my hours to make up for part of my lost hours.
But, that's not the only thing Tarmac has done for me. When I got pregnant and had to go on bed rest, Tarmac allowed my husband to fill in for me. He already knew a lot about the project and we could continue to receive a pay- check. How many employers would do that? I was surprised and thankful and was able relax a little more during my preg- nancy without the stress of wondering how to pay my bills with no income.
People talk all the time about employers treating you like family and I see it happening every day with Tarmac. I don't feel like someone who is "just an employee," but is someone who the company values when I come and work each day.
I'm not sure what the future holds but I'm certain that if Tarmac opens in Levy County there will be a lot of stories like mine
