Lori Moyer: Hiring An Employee Through Skills of Central PA

Lori Moyer owns an independent jewelry store, Moyer Jewelers, in downtown State College.

About four years ago, she hired a young man named Robert through Skills Employment Services, and she says it’s been one of the best decisions ever.

Lori typically hired Penn State Students, yet they weren’t always reliable. Robert, however, loves going to work and hates to call in sick.

“We’ve been blessed that the employee we hired from Skills is the same employee we have four years later,” Lori says.

Most people don’t know that when you hire an employee through Skills, you also gain an Employee Training Specialist. If Lori thinks Robert needs a refresh on how to do a certain task, she calls the specialist who will then get Robert back on track.

“One of the special things about Robert is he’s family,” Lori says. “I’m fortunate to be able to bring two of my four dogs to work, and Robert loves them. He knows which dogs are and aren’t afraid of the vacuum!”
