“I started out as a temporary employee. But after I started, I felt like the job chose me first, because when I got here in our Salt Lake City facility, it was a small community of people working there.
I recently got promoted and it has really helped shape me to be the person that I am now. I’ve learned so much and I continue to learn more every single day and that is why I have decided to make United Radio my career.”
Why I decided to come back to work at United Radio
Name: Brittany Unger
Position: Yamaha Customer Care Representative
Preliminary time at United Radio: A year and 3 months
Time away: 8 months
Came back to United Radio: June 2021
Here is Brittany’s story:
Q. Why did you decide to leave United Radio?
A. I decided to leave United Radio to pursue nursing school. There was honestly nothing wrong with the job I held at United Radio, I was simply a 25-year-old who was struggling to find her purpose in life. I knew I had wanted to help people and thought nursing was the route to go.
Q. Why did you decide to return to United Radio?
A. After working in a nursing home and attending classes throughout the pandemic, I quickly realized that I was not going to be able to cope with the amount of losses that I had endured. I took everything home with me and emotionally it was not something that I could handle. I decided to return to United Radio because of the people and the atmosphere. I feel at home here and feel that I can be who I truly am. I do have an extremely goofy side to me and I feel safe here knowing that my coworkers accept me as I am, quirks and all. It is so different than any other company I have worked for, the people here really care and are always willing to lift each other up. Even the simple “Hellos” or “Good mornings” I receive from people in various departments in the mornings make my day. The people that work here truly are the best.
Q. Since your return, what has been your most satisfying moment?
A. My most satisfying moment was my first day back. I had thought of myself as such a failure for not being able to finish nursing school, but the people here at United Radio were as supportive as ever. I remember being so nervous for my first day, but my coworkers and managers welcomed me back with open arms. I felt at home again.
Q. Is there anything you see different here this time around that you like or dislike?
A. One thing that is different this time around is that I get to also work with our amazing team in Salt Lake City. I have only known them for a short period of time and they have already accepted me and all of my quirkiness. I am excited for United Radio and for the expansion of friends that I have made here.
Q. Is there anything you would like to add?
A. I wanted to give a special thanks to my CSS fam. Customer Service is not an easy job, but these people make it worth it!
