#RothLife: Lisa Hanik

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.

With over 20 years in the staffing industry under her belt and a strong desire to give back to her Las Vegas community, Lisa is the epitome of our Roth Culture. Learn more about her typical day, her best career tips, and the one thing she can’t live without.

Q: What do you do at Roth?

Sr. Business Solutions Manager, Team Lead

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

Find everyone a job.  My significant other and brothers give strangers my cell number all the time and tell them I can help whoever they are talking to find a job.  They also know I volunteer a lot and love that.  They know Roth Staffing is a champion of promoting this and I tend to lead the volunteer events for Las Vegas.

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

Half of my day is recruitment and the other half is sales.  I also work closely with Mariela Vazquez as her lead and help us both become better every day at what we do.

Q: What is the best thing about your job?

Getting someone a job.  We help make people’s lives better and that is why my job is rewarding and enjoyable.

Q: What do you find most challenging about your role?

Not being able to help everyone.  People come to us to help them and sometimes we are unable to help.  Being honest and good communication is the key to having everyone leave with a positive experience.

Q: What is something your Coworkers might not know about you?

I’m like an open book…. They know everything LOL

Q: Before working at Roth, what was the most interesting job you’ve ever had?

I have been at Roth for over 12 years and all of my jobs have been in staffing for the past 20+ years.  I think my current job is most interesting because it allows me to do what I love which is work in staffing, give back to the community and also sit on the board for the local SHRM chapter which can be time consuming.

Q: If you could switch roles with anyone else in the company, whose job would you want?

Susan Ahrens because of my love for sales (but I do love my current role).

Q: Do you have a personal mantra or motto?

Always be kind and enjoy the moments in life.  Also, give back in your personal and professional life.
