Congratulations to Ashley Moats, our 17th Free Rent and a job! employee appreciation sweepstakes winner. Ashley has been working at ABR since November, 2015 doing packaging work in the food industry.

Ashley receivedĀ a check for $1,000 during a surprise check presentation ceremony at the ABR La Crosse Office on April 5th. Said a surprised Ashley to our CEO, Jim McNett, “You drove all the way here [from Madison] just for me?”.

The Early Bird Almost Didn’t Get the Worm

Normally an honest, upstanding citizen, Amber Irons, Staffing Specialist at the La Crosse branch had to fabricate a story to get Ashley into the office to receive her winnings. She had asked Ashley to come in the morning of April 5th at 11 a.m. to sign a form. Eager to get the errand done, Ashley arrived at 9:30 a.m., 90 minutes early! Thinking quickly on her feet, Staffing Coordinator Ashley Thimis made up a second story to persuade Ashley to come back at 11 a.m. Most of the time being early is a good thing, but it wasn’t that day!

Poor Ashley. She works 3rd shift, was tired, and just wanted to get the errand at ABR done so she could go home and get some sleep! Receiving the $1,000 check 90 minutes later perked her right up.

Thanks for being such a good sport AND a great employee, Ashley! And congratulations again on being ABR’s 17th Free Rent and a job! winner.
