Meet Corey Staton, IT Support Desk Technician!
Corey Staton quickly became a tremendous asset to the entire team at The 20. Read below to find out more about Corey.
What do you do here at The 20?
For the time being, I am a tier 1 support desk technician that services level 1 tickets with end users.
Describe The 20 in three words…
Like a family.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I never had a particular job in mind growing up, just that I wanted to help everyone that I could. My main goal as a kid was to build an exo-suit style support system for the elderly/disabled to help with motor movements.
What’s the most challenging thing about your job?
If I had to pick the “most challenging” aspect of my job, I’d have to say that it is just the nature of it being remote support and not involving any hands on support.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
I would have to say that my greatest achievement would have to be finding my wife in High School rather than having to search for her as an adult.
What do you think is the most important quality necessary for success?
I believe that the most important quality that is needed for success in any field is going to be communication. Both the ability to speak up and relay a message effectively, while also being able to listen and understand what is being communicated to you are extremely crucial to anyone’s success at anything that they do.
What do you like most about The 20?
As mentioned previously, The 20 feels so much like a family and there is genuine care from everyone I have interacted with here. I have had event after unfortunate event happen outside of work and have had nothing but support from those here at The 20 and it means so very much to me to have that kind of support from those who have nothing to do with said events.
What do you like to do in your spare time? / What are your hobbies?
I’m quite a social person but as my friends and I have gotten older and moved apart, the main way that we stay in communication and actually spend time together is in video games. In the event that we do get to spend time together physically we will camp, hike, party, and so many more less digital things.
Where are you going on your next vacation?
The next vacation that involves a trip somewhere will most likely just be to Galveston. I lived there and had many relatives that have since passed and have not been back since so I would like to see what all has changed.
What’s your top life hack?
Rice cookers. It’s one of those things that you really wish you had every time that you could use one but then you don’t think about it again until the next time you need it. They also make great wedding gifts if you need to get one.
