After completing the Paxen Work Readiness program, Joyclyn was ready to re-focus on entering employment, and her interests were focused towards the field of sales. Paxen’s collaborative partnership with Lowe's offered an excellent opportunity for Joyclyn, and she was employed as a customer service sales representative at Lowe's. Joyclyn was excited and more than willing to accept the challenges of this position and to date she is maximizing her sales goals and setting new sales standards in her department.

Outcomes & Benefits

Frederick Thornton, Lowe's Human Resource Manager, said, "Joyclyn has made all the difference in her department. She has the keen ability to listen to the customer and guide them towards the correct merchandise and products, but most importantly close the sale." Mr. Thornton went on to say, "Joyclyn has been an outstanding team member at Lowe's and is destined to grow within the organization."

Joycyln knows that her success at Lowe's is due to the support of her family as well as her prior customer service and sales experience.

Joyclyn shared, "Paxen Learning Corporation was able to assist me in turning my life around at a time when I needed a helping hand instead of a handout!"
