Favorite CPI Memory

I had known Kim Warchol a few years and worked as a contract trainer for the DCS programs for a couple years before I became a full-time employee. My impression of everyone at CPI/DCS has been that they are so knowledgeable in their jobs and always willing to help and take the time to get to know me. I have been so impressed with the people of CPI that it was a no-brainer when Kim offered me a full-time position. I took it without even asking what the salary was because I knew these were my kind of people and a place where I could not just work, but thrive.
