The tickets went to a 10 year old boy who suffers from Lymphoma and when asked what his one wish would be, he answered, “to go to the Super Bowl”. This boy's wish came true when he and 13 other wish kids attended Super Bowl 50 this year in Santa Clara, CA. In addition to going to the game, the group also was able to take a stadium tour of Levi’s Stadium prior to the event, get access to the NFL Experience in downtown San Francisco and meet some of the San Francisco 49ers at a Welcome Reception.

    I have been working at JEAR Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dedicated management, endless opportunity, and a supportive team to work with. The benefits are AWESOME and it's really cool to be apart of the growth. Working with JEAR is working with family.

    Cons

    Not for the faint of heart. If you don't want to grind for your own success, this isn't the place for you.

    Keep it up!

    Very relaxed asked good thought provoking questions. Gave me ample opportunity to ask questions to further understand the industry that JEAR works with. We spoke about the training timeline as well as the types of volunteer work they did.
