All Star Success Stories – Hunter Nelms
After five years in prison, Hunter was about to be released when one of our All Star employees visited the correctional facility to talk with the inmates about post release employment opportunities. Hunter met with Lenanne, they discussed work opportunities, and he says all that she asked for in return was for his hard work.
The day he was released, Hunter came directly to our Eugene office and met with the rest of our team. He interviewed with one of our clients the next day and was able to start full time just days later. Since then, he has been hired on permanently in the steel fabrication industry and loves what he does. He has been able to get back on his feet saying, “I firmly believe if it were not for the second chance given to me by All Star Labor & Staffing, I would not be where I am today.”
Recently, Hunter has begun working toward becoming a Youth Drug and Alcohol Counselor. He volunteers his time visiting youth institutions and halfway homes to tell his story, always acknowledging the All Star team for helping him get where he is today.
Thank you Hunter for sharing your story, and being such a delightful employee. You truly bring happiness and pride to our All Star Eugene office!
