Carlos Part 1
Riddled with few job opportunities in his hometown for a Black American with a college degree, Carlos' first post college job was at Hooters Restaurant, as a kitchen helper chopping onions and tomatoes. Over a span of the next two years he balanced three jobs: Hooters, part time work at Kroger as a stock clerk, and a part time employee with 1st Liberty Bank as an item processor. Although recognized as an exceptional worker, he managed to earn a mere $800 per month while working more than ten hours per day.
At the urging of a college friend, Carlos migrated to the big city of Atlanta, Georgia where he was allowed to live rent free for three months. There he accepted a 90-day job assignment as a Senior Case Worker with the Department of Family & Children's Services (DFACS), earning little more than minimum wage and subsisting on a diet of hotdogs and beans. But through the hardships, he remained focused and determined to meet his goals. Making small strides, Carlos was hired by 1st Data as a Collections Specialist earning less than $10 per hour but allowed unlimited overtime. Working no less than 12-hour shifts each day, his tenacious work ethic transcended into speedy promotions.
