Our Blog series, “Meeting Maxons!” continues this week. We will hear from Billy, a Warehouse Manager, about his experiences at Maxons.
Q. How long been with Maxons?
A. 10 months
Q. Do you remember what your impressions were of the company after being here for about a month?
A. Well the first month I couldn’t get a good impression of the operation because we were remodeling the warehouse and I was obsessed with that. But I thought it was a very progressive company – we were expanding and were proactive.
Q. What was the first thing you had to learn when joining the team?
A. How to clean and maintain the equipment we use on jobs.
Q. What is the most important thing you have learned since you have been here?
A. Be prepared! Always wait for details, we are very responsive, but if we wait a beat, we get more information on what to prepare. We need to plan before acting.
Q. Why do you have a passion for this industry?
A. Because it is dynamic and I do learn something new everyday.
Q. Which company core value speaks to you the most – and why?
A. Tenacity – after working with Bob and the team, we can make anything work and solve any problem. Because we like the challenge!
Q. What is your favorite Maxons story?
A. We were painting the warehouse floor, and right as we finished we were saying it was the one time we hoped no one called in with a job. So that is exactly what happened! A job came in and we were preparing to problem solve how to get supplies on the truck without touching the wet paint! The job ended up getting canceled. So it was a good lesson on being prepared as well as taking our minute to wait before acting!
