Tim Williams' Story
(Technician- Dallas/Fort Worth Office) - Tim Williams came to Datamax looking for a change. He was ready to get back into technology.
Prior to joining this organization as a technician, the now production-specific expert served as the technology department head for Cinemark Theaters in Dallas, working with analog projectors, sound equipment, and point-of-sale kiosks. After that, he worked as a manager at a financing location, realizing that not only did he miss technology – he craved more work/life balance.
He found both at Datamax. He also found a place that’s empowered him to heighten his technical prowess immensely.
“My technical ability has improved ten-fold (since joining Datamax), and I’ve transitioned to completely fixing all of my own things. From appliances, and cars to home repairs I’ve yet to call to get something repaired in years,” Tim says.
What led me to Datamax?
“When I applied for this position, I was looking for a change. At my previous company, I worked 6 days a week, 52-hour weeks and I had a 3-month-old that I was missing time with. The opportunity to work a 40-hour work week with a work/life balance was a big persuasion,” he said.
My experiences at Datamax:
Tim mentions three distinct benefits of being on Team Datamax:
- Teamwork (“Everyone is on the same team and regardless of what department we are in, you can always get help if needed.”)
- Employee-focused culture (“Datamax makes an effort to let their employees know that they are cared for.”)
- Consistent training (“There is constantly something new in our industry.”)
“I was surprised by the amount of training Datamax invested in me,” Tim said. “When I started, I had technician experience in a different industry (movie theater projectors and POS technology) but I had no experience working on any type of printer technology much less working on production equipment. Datamax invested a lot of time to get me up to speed and was very patient while I learned the ropes."
What makes me want to stay at Datamax?
“Datamax has some really awesome people employed here and it would be very difficult to part ways with such a great team. Also, I would miss the customers, the equipment, and the day-to-day operations I’ve grown accustomed to,” Tim said.
