I’ve worked at Desafio for almost a year; it’s been great and thanks to this job I’ve been able to develop my personality and am getting closer to achieving the many goals that I have, like becoming a US Marine just like my brother!
I believe this company is a really good match for young and thriving people who want to succeed. It can catapult you towards a good future. I love the values and the vision that this awesome place has and I think this is one of the many reasons why I like and enjoy working here, because this job for me is more than just making money.
One of the things that I most like about Desafio is the working environment and the fact that you can discover who is set to be a leader and who is set to be a follower. For example, we have great leaders like Yency, who I think has the characteristics to succeed as the head of the reservations department. I admire and respect leaders. I know that you have to be a follower at some point in order to be a great leader. I also know that in the near future, I can and I will be a great leader!
Desafio is more than my job; I feel that it is my school, too! It seems that every day I learn and see something new and it never gets old for me! I have done incredible things and visited amazing places thanks to being part of this awesome crew! Before I started working here, I used to be a lone wolf, but now I’ve learned how to work as a team and for that I have to thank everybody that has helped me over this time!
Desafio for me is an awesome place, but I also know that it can be stressful from time to time. There are long days full of work, but in difficult times you see who are the people you can rely on. All of this is worth it at the end of the day because when you see a happy and grateful client, you realized how cool our job is.
Well to finish up, I’m proud of being part of the Desafio team, which I think is full of great people. I’ll keep trying to do the best job I can and continue improving every day!
