In the same week Samuel Carroll scored a new job, he got a baby bonus – literally.
The Rockhampton man is one of the almost 120 employees who have been working hard to get the new Masters Home Improvement store on Yaamba Rd ready for business. Sam completed an indigenous job ready program with Masters at the Rockhampton Dreamtime Centre earlier this year. Yesterday, he said he was “over the moon” when he was offered a position in the garden section of the store.
“It all happened in one week,” he said. “I found out I got the job and my first son was born. It was perfect timing really.” Sam, who moved to Rockhampton two months ago, said at first he had struggled to find work.
