Our Blog series, “Meeting Maxons!” continues this week. We will hear from David, a Senior Project Manager, about his experiences at Maxons.
Q: How long been with Maxons?
A: 2 years.
Q: Do you remember what your impressions were of the company after being here for about a month?
A: There was a lot of open communication and teamwork.
Q: What was the first thing you had to learn when joining the team?
A: I had to relearn the subway system! I came from the industry, so I really needed to learn the Maxons way!.
Q: What is the most important thing you have learned since you have been here?
A: Teamwork – you can’t do it alone!
Q: Why do you have a passion for this industry?
A: Because I get to help people. It is my nature, and I get to do it professionally. Outside of Maxons I am involved in helping my community, as a volunteer firefighter, I like to be a resource to people.
Q: Which company core value speaks to you the most – and why?
A: Optimism. What we deal with could be the worst experience of our customer’s life. That means we need to be empathetic and understanding with them, and help them see there is hope and that this will pass. And we get to help them through all of that.
Q: What is your favorite Maxons story?
A: In general how the group comes together on large losses. I just handled one with multiple apartments, multiple floors, there were a lot of needs on the site. Multiple Project Managers jumped in to help me, our warehouse team was unstoppable and our Vice President was with me every step of the way. The job went well and I couldn’t have done it alone.
I have worked for a few other restoration companies and Maxons is the only one that adheres to the core values – here it is not just words on our wall, we live them.
