Our Blog series, “Meeting Maxons!” continues this week. We will hear from Griffin, our Project Coordinator, about his experiences at Maxons.
Q: How long have you been with Maxons?
A: 1 year this month!
Q: Do you remember what your impressions were of the company after being here for about a month?
A: That pretty much everything we had talked about in interview about the culture of the company – that everyone really practiced what they preached. We do what we say we will do – and everyone cares about what they do. And that I had never seen so many people so happy to come to work.
Q: What was the first thing you had to learn when joining the team?
A: Our database – once you learn that you have everything else available to you! But understanding a work flow was important. I liked learning the process, and how I fit into it. Everything in the process led to everything else.
Q: What is the most important thing you have learned since you have been here?
A: When we work together there is nothing we can’t do. Every issue we have had, we have come together as a team to resolve it.
Q: Why do you have a passion for this industry?
A: I think it is because it is tied to what I chose to do in my spare team, being a volunteer fire fighter. I like helping people.
Q: Which company core value speaks to you the most – and why?
A: Optimism – because a lot of what we deal with is looking at a glass half empty, and it is our job to help them see it is actually half full. That we are going to get them back on their feet.
Q: What is your favorite Maxons story?
A: Our outings are so fun! We work so hard, when we get together and have a good time it is really delightful. We also get to see more of each other’s personalities – it is so great! We are a fun group!
