Hanukkah!

Hanukkah!

Submitted by: Abby Bruno, Recruiting Manager “Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made you out of clay. And when you’re dry and ready, oh dreidel I shall play!” For my family, the end of the year is synonymous with this jingle on repeat. From the time I was little to the present day (and now that I have a child of my own) we always sing and light the candles for eight days every winter. The celebration of Hanukkah, which is also known as the “Festival of Lights,” is not just a time to get together with family and get eight …

Creating a Culture of Service

Creating a Culture of Service

Submitted by: Kaitlyn McCormack, Senior Recruiting Manager I have a confession. When I was asked to facilitate a training on “Creating a Culture of Service”, I was a little apprehensive. The phrase is somewhat lofty and ambiguous, so to help make it more digestible, the first thing I did was Google the meaning of culture (as it applies to a company) and the meaning of service. Here is what I found: The culture of an organization is practically its DNA; it is implied, not expressly defined, and develops organically over time from the cumulative traits of the people the company …

Our New Hire Experiences

Our New Hire Experiences

Submitted by: Lane Boston, Corporate Operations Coordinator My first opportunity to shadow our TitleMax of Garden City store was a great experience. I worked with Gabriel, the General Manager, and Ivory, the General Manager Trainee. Being the Corporate Operations Coordinator, I have a lot of contact with store team members via email and phone every day, so it was so nice to see firsthand the store operations side of the business and what the store has to go through before they send their requests to me. I had a wonderful experience learning about Gabriel and Ivory’s daily tasks, how they …

Shooting Hoops and Talking TMX

Shooting Hoops and Talking TMX

Submitted by: Farrell Click, Senior Operations Manager Spending time with my TMX Family this past Thanksgiving week was great!  I had the opportunity to join several team members from the Savannah corporate office and attend the Savannah Invitational Basketball Tournament. The TMX Finance Family of Companies was a sponsor and, I must say, we had a blast interacting with the community and getting out of the office for a little fun—we even got to spend some time with our President, Otto Bielss!  Sponsoring the tournament was a great chance to support the local community and cheer on our favorite college …

Why R.E.D. Friday

Why R.E.D. Friday

Submitted by: Kris D. Reece, Sr.  General Manager – TMX Certified Trainer R.E.D. (Remember Everyone Deployed) is a very important movement for my family and I.  We, like a lot of families, have a rich military history going back to the 1800’s in our hometown of Ellijay, Georgia.  My son decided that he wanted to serve his country at the age of 16 to follow in my father’s footsteps into the United States Air Force.  Soon after getting his permanent station in Little Rock, AR he met his wife who is also active USAF.  Two months after their marriage, she was …

#DefineYourDrive- Family

#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

#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 …
