When Opportunity Knocks, Let It In!

By LaTausha Taborn, Manufacturing Assistant

When I first started at PRIER 7 years ago, I had no idea that I would be where I am today. In 2007, I was looking for employment, submitting application after application with no luck. My financial situation was becoming more and more stressful and I was not sure what I was going to do. I did know, however, that I could not stop searching and applying.

Becoming All You Are Meant To Be

By Ieshia Mayes, Accounts Payable Specialist

One of PRIER’s objectives cited in our Mission Statement is “to help all partners become all they are meant to be, both inside and outside of PRIER.” This is exemplified through PRIER’s tuition reimbursement program, PRIER’s volunteer opportunities and health coverage benefits to name a few. The most important thing I have learned is that you only get one chance at life, one chance to “become all you are meant to be,” so give it your best shot!

App Review: Countdown+

By Chris Travers with Hart, Travers and Associates

On a recent road-trip with my sixteen year-old to her Grandmother’s house, she told me that 45 days and 6 hours remained until we would leave on vacation. Soon thereafter, she mentioned to me that it would be 63 days until our exchange student arrived to stay and only 43 days and eight hours until my niece (her cousin) would be married.

It is Ineveitable

By Scott Jones, Warehouse Manager

We have all heard the phrase, “you are turning into your father,” or “you are just like your mother.” However, it normally isn't the looks of the child that is being considered in these statements, rather the actions which portray him or her to be like their father or mother.

Career Goals, One Step at a Time

By Emilie Ospino, HR Assistant

“What do you want to do when you grow up?” is a question many of us faced when we were kids.  I would argue it still applies at many different stages in a person’s career.
