Meet Kristian

Workforce Challenge

Kristian was unhappy working in a position as a audio electronics installer making only $9.50 an hour with no benefits and no opportunity for advancement. He wanted to better himself with a higher paying job and with a company that offered advancement opportunities.

Workforce Solution

Kristian came to the Workforce Center asking for help in applying for an entry level position at Kaman Composites. It was there that Kristian learned Kaman Composites was an approved On the Job Training(OJT) provider. Kristian completed the steps necessary to get the specialized job training and to participate in OJT.

Outcomes & Benefits

Kaman Composites hired Kristian as a Bagger/Plaster Mold Technician with an hourly increase of over 15% from his previous job and with benefits. He will now have opportunities to advance within the company in the field of composites. From the words of the Human Resources and Safety Manager, Kathy Smith, " Kristian is doing great! He has learned so quickly and is a great employee!"
