Are you still interested? Great! You probably have more questions, though. We interviewed an employee who went through the program. His biography might give you a more detailed grasp for what to expect:
Richard “Tripp” Jones graduated from West Virginia State University in 2009 with a degree in Social Work before applying to join ImageFIRST’s management trainee program. Between leaving college and starting at ImageFIRST, he worked as a habilitation counselor in Rutgers University Hospital’s crisis unit, where he primarily conducted psychiatric screenings.
He interviewed with Jim Kennedy, our Mid Atlantic VP, and gathered from there that he and ImageFIRST shared the same values. After consulting his siblings (both of whom work in healthcare) upon being offered the position, Tripp decided that a career with us seemed like it would be stable and rewarding. We welcomed him aboard in June of 2015.
When he started the training program, Tripp immediately felt like he was being offered all the right tools to develop and grow as a future leader. He described the program as being well rounded, allowing him to be innovative and creative. Tripp especially appreciates that ImageFIRST is a fun environment to work within, and is family oriented. He equates his coworkers to being like family, constantly helping one another out, and treating each other with dignity and respect.
Tripp said that during training, he could count on leaders to help foster his growth and career trajectory, and his plant manager, VP and service director were all inspiring coaches and teachers. They treated his future with the utmost seriousness, and invested time and resources to help Tripp grow.
He says that training and working with ImageFIRST was great because his mistakes were seen as opportunities to learn and grow. He was given the opportunity to lead teams, and possessed meaningful responsibilities. All in all, he genuinely believes that ImageFIRST is truly dedicated to developing world-class leaders.
If you possess all of the above skills, and think an experience like Tripp’s will be right for you, we encourage you to apply for our management trainee program. We look forward to hearing from you! Find out more or sign up at www.imagefirst.com/careers!
