Testimonial's from Employees
“Everyone is equal no matter their gender, race, ethnicity, or disability. We’re all imperfect pieces of a puzzle, but put together, we make a perfect picture.”
“MDI challenges and trains me to perform in different areas of the work floor. Everyone is more excepting of our disabilities. I’ve enjoyed Careers Skills 101 and am looking forward to starting 201.”
“MDI is a good place to work and wants everyone to succeed. If you don’t understand something, asking questions is all you need to do and Leads are there to help. I’ve never worked at a place that was so supportive of people with disabilities.”
“Overcoming our differences is what makes us a great team. We all feel like a family. The company keeps all of employees in the loop and communication is good. It makes everyday a new experience.”
"I feel less stressed here. I can become overwhelmed easy, but don’t feel that here. I get to try different things and learn skills. I even enrolled in next Career Skills class to help me learn about possibly working out tin the community."
