Meet the Team
Pete the Job Guy
I enlisted in the Navy because college wasn’t an option for me then. After attending boot camp and training to become a jet engine mechanic, I was stationed right here in Jacksonville Florida at the tail end of 1984. I was stationed at NAS Cecil Field and attached to the USS Saratoga, at NAS Mayport. We crossed Gaddafi’s ‘Line of Death’ and along with my fellow shipmates, was awarded the Navy Expeditionary Medal. I worked 50 – 70 hours a week depending on our mission/schedule. I took college courses at night and weekends – whenever possible. I re-enlisted so that I could take advantage of my earned ‘shore duty’ and I finished my undergraduate degree at just about the same time I was honorably discharged.
Since then I’ve had career highs, lows, highs again and lows again. I have taken many lumps along the way that I can help people avoid. I’ve learned lessons that others will certainly benefit from hearing about. I was fortunate to end up working in the field of staffing and recruiting, where I help people all day long. For the past 9 years, I functioned as the Chief Operating Officer of SNI Companies where I helped build it into one of the nation’s largest specialized staffing firms with an annual revenue of over $100 million, with over 450 employees and 40 offices nationally. I love what I do. I am passionate about helping people. And every working minute of every work day I am dedicated to being the HARDEST WORK-AH I can be. I do this for myself, my family, my employers, the stockholders of our company, and to set the example for all my fellow hard work-ahs.
