Submitted by: Kris D. Reece, Sr.  General Manager – TMX Certified Trainer R.E.D.

#DefineYourDrive- Family

Submitted by: Troy Shetron – TitleBucks General Manager, Georgia I joined the military straight out of high school and completed Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT) in 2002. I was deployed to Iraq from 2005 to 2006 and again later in 2007. After receiving injuries as a result of a road side bomb (IED), my drive changed when I was discharged from Active Duty with medical disability. I had to be the one to challenge myself to turn and take a new path and excel at it. I returned to civilian life and began managing a retail store for …

#DefineYourDrive- Determination

Roxanne Powell – TitleMax General Manager, Alabama I decided to join the Army National Guard after my sister deployed to Afghanistan. When I went to her deployment ceremony, I witnessed the selfless service of my sister and her brothers-and-sisters in arms. I saw the dedication and the comradery of soldiers that gave up their freedom to protect ours and that is what made me want to join. I joined because I wanted to serve my country, I wanted to do something to help others, and give back to my community. Joining the military is what has made me into the …

#DefineYourDrive- Family

Submitted by: Jason Connell – District Director of Operations, Georgia I grew up in a small Georgia town where I was taught at a young age that hard work, integrity, and family were most important. I was fortunate enough to be raised by some amazing people, not just parents but uncles, aunts, and grandparents that helped mold me into the person I am today. Upon high school graduation, I became a United States Marine. Being a Marine instilled in me the disciplines to work hard and never quit. In my retail career and now here at TitleMax, I have had …

#DefineYourDrive- Passion

Submitted by: Kevin Godwin – District Director of Operations, Georgia I joined the Company in 2004 as a General Manager (“GM”). In just four years, I worked hard and was named a District Director of Operations (“DDO”) and four years later, I earned my next promotion to a Regional Director of Operations position, leading at the time, the largest region in the Company. However, two years later family issues led to me stepping back into a different role to be able to better assist my family. During that time, I buried one child, graduated another from college, and recently adopted …

Why Hire College Graduates?

Submitted by: Ashley Snider, Senior Recruiting Manager, Store Strategies Every company is searching for their next top performer, and with today’s tight labor market, now is the best time to diversify your candidate pool. Hiring college graduates is a great way to bring employment opportunities to those that are seeking continued development, and could be an incredibly wise long-term decision for your company. One of the biggest hesitations companies have about hiring college graduates is the lack of real-world experience. However, “experience” shouldn’t be thought of as only work or on-the-job experience. After all, college graduates may have gained non-traditional …
