The Shoe Dept

Workforce Challenge

The Shoe Dept was scheduled to open in the Alpena Mall, but they found themselves running behind of schedule.

Workforce Solution

They visited Michigan Works! to help them advertise available positions. Prior to the grand opening, Michigan Works! sent job fair referrals, collected resumes and applications, and conducted resume searches.

Outcomes & Benefits

As a result, Vito was hired as The Shoe Dept’s new store manager. He has been with the company for a year, and he still loves his job. Vito’s motto is, “What you put in as effort, you will get in return. Work smarter, not harder.”

As The Shoe Dept has more openings, Vito continues to rely on Michigan Works! for their employment services. “Our last three sales associates have come from Michigan Works!,” says Vito. “I wish all of my employees were as eager to learn and give 110% all the time as these folks do. I am blessed.”
