Meet Mr. Deric Jackson Sr., our customer of the week!
Mr. Jackson says he has been riding with MAX since he was fifteen years old. He enjoys riding most of the routes and does not have a favorite. “I depend on MAX to get me to dialysis and doctors’ appointments,” he shares.
He has gotten to know most of the operators and passengers from riding with them regularly and enjoys conversing with them during their bus rides.
Mr. Jackson thinks that the operators are good people who know their riders and do their best to help them.
We thank Mr. Jackson for his positive attitude and business. Congratulations, you are our customer of the week!
Meet Christina Griggs, our employee of the week!
Christina has been employed with BJCTA for two years, where she began working in Customer Service. She is now cross training in contracts administration. Her duties as the Contracts Assistant is to assist the Contracts Administrator in drafting contracts, entering contract related information into the system, and communicating with vendors on contract related issues. She also maintains contract files. She aspires to grow in this company and says she sees Director in her future!
Christina enjoys working with people in this organization that push her past her limits, potential, and expectations. “The right people will make you discover things that you did not know about yourself and help you use that to reach your highest goal,” she says.
When asked what she would like to see done differently at the company, her response was,” I honestly wish I could see more interaction between management and employees. The management staff works hard to find money and build better opportunities for our organization, yet we still would not be fully operational without employees that make it their job to make MAX look great. Those operators, supervisors, call center representatives, facility technicians, and shop technicians are a huge part of this organization. I would like to see more recognition being shown to them. I would like them all to know I appreciate every single one of them.”
Christina says her little sisters motivate her. She wants them to see that no matter what you have been through, you can achieve greatness.
Her favorite quote is “Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”
Congratulations Christina! Thank you for your hard work and dedication to MAX.
