#RothLife: Carly Burns

Our #RothLife series features Coworkers in various roles across the country, giving a glimpse of who we are as a company, and what it looks like to be a champion of Roth’s culture.
We recently sat down with Carly to talk about her role as a Business Solutions Manager, Team Lead, and what it’s like being the mom to 3-year old twins (hint: LOTS of coffee!)

Q: What do you do at Roth?

I am a Business Solutions Manager-Team Lead at Ultimate Staffing

Q: What do your friends and family think you do?

I tell my 3-year-old twins that I help people find jobs for a living.

Q: What does a typical day look like for you?

We start our day with a 30-minute morning meeting where we go over order statuses, daily plans and try to inspire each other to do great things.  From there, my morning is split into meetings and/or interviews and then a 1.5-hour call block.  Then a break for lunch, come back to meetings and/or interviews, then another 1.5-hour call block and the remainder of my day is set aside for service and setting up more interviews for the next day.  I really like breaking the day into these 1.5-hour blocks because it keeps me focused on the task at hand and helps me stay engaged in the moment.

Q: What is the best thing about your job? 

The best thing about my job is being the glue between a great candidate and client.  I love being able to bring them together to make something better than what was already there.

Q: Do you have a personal mantra or motto? 

“Let’s give it a try, what’s the worst that can happen, nothing?”

Q: What are three career lessons you’ve learned thus far? 

1.)  Listen!  Listen!  Listen! 2.) Treat everyone you encounter with respect; you never know where you (or they) will end up and 3.) Be honest.

Q: What’s the one thing you can’t live without?

Coffee!  Remember those 3-year-old twins J

Q: What is one thing you can’t resist? 

Frozen Yogurt.  We have a frozen yogurt shop in the next shopping center and at least once a week I make the team get it with me.

Q: What do you think your Coworkers most admire in you?

I think my coworkers would admire my tenacity and drive
