i had 90 hours to complete here at the goodwill and it started off being very un enjoyable to do the fact that you feel there are better things you could be doing instead of communtity service but during my stay here ive grown to like it more and more all the time the people are friendly and make your stay as pleasant as possible for the time being i would recommend it as a workplace to give your time because the enviorment is friendly and the labor is nothing that will leave you feeling like a slave.

Hi my name is Rudy Batilla My story of who I am today and where my journey has taken me begins with the period of which I was incarcerated in Federal Prison. I was presented with the opportunity to gain my Certifications in Tree Management and Turf Maintenance. At that time I did not have a clue why I was considering a 30 year career change that has always been an Auto Transmission Tech to the great outdoors. I began my transition into society which started with job seeking in the hope of putting to use my newly acquired Certifications. These efforts were starting to show no hope for even a chance to show the world that I could truly offer a significant change to what ever I was asked to do. After becoming totally exhausted from every technique and strategy I was told by my job counselor at the halfway house that Goodwill Ind.was taking applications for Grounds Maintenance one. So this was the beginning of my five year journey with Goodwill Ind.that I can honestly call my family and support system. My entry level position was GM1 then GM2 then GM3 which is Crew leader and finally my present position which is Assistance Project Manager LAFB Grounds Contract. My duties are a great list of responsibilities which I look forward to every day. All along Goodwill has provided me with the training,Finacial assistance through the PRI Program,Guidance and support by my Case manager, management, supervisors and fellow team members. Goodwill Ind. has also given me the gift of being a Mentor for all who i have had the privilege of giving advise or guiding them to our many resources that Goodwill has available have recently lost my Father in a tragic accident and through my suffering i was given the honor and support of all the Executive staff but to include the CEO himself not only the visit to the Rosary but also the Funeral. I will never forget this. The help and support to to launch my dreams and keep them a reality each day is a gift that has touched my heart and i can only compare with the birth of my lovely daughter which made my family and Goodwill Ind. a whole I will forever be committed to Goodwill’s Mission and goals where ever my future takes me. These values will always represent who i am and how i carry on this legacy. Thank you Goodwill and Team members Rudolfo R. Batilla Assistant Project Manager LAFB Contract
