In honor of Military Appreciation month, we'd like to introduce you to John Waller; one of our Regional Services Managers out of our Warwick, RI Headquarters.John is currently serving in the United States Air Force and has been for the past seven years. He’s been deployed internationally to Peacetime and Wartime missions with his last being Senegal, Africa in 2021. He was deployed here to assist in COVID-19 efforts, biomedical engineering operations as well as surgery and emergency room operations.
John recognizes the struggles he faces being part time as a USAF National Guard along with completing his master’s degree, having a family, and working full-time. That's why CME promotes a family comes first mindset. After listening to our employees feedback, we know what employees really need - a career that values their work/life balance!
John says “Working at CME has taught me that employers truly do recognize and appreciate all that a veteran brings to the table. I was afraid my national guard commitments would deter anyone from hiring me, but quite the contrary. CME has been so understanding and accommodating of my military obligations, it truly makes me feel honored to be a part of this family here at CME. I would encourage anyone to hire those individuals still serving/veterans, because we are ready and willing to serve in any capacity!”
"The skills that I utilize here at my full-time job as the Biomedical Manager at CME have come directly from the skills I learned in the military. We are taught many skills such as: leadership, hard work, trust, honor, loyalty, integrity, teamwork, perseverance, duty, and service before self. Most importantly we are confident individuals that are given an arsenal of skills and particular job knowledge and we can adapt and overcome most anything set before us. I truly would not be who I am and where I am today if it were not for my military service.”
