what has been your most satisfying experience on the job?

It is always extremely satisfying to see a project from when it is a merely a discussion, to winning the project, finishing design and ultimately walking into the finished building. It is very tangible and rewarding.

why are you proud to work for Schaefer?

Schaefer is a company of opportunity. From the first day I started as a co-op, the ability to learn, grow and take on responsibility has always been there. If you want to try, Schaefer will afford you the opportunity while providing support. It is truly an amazing place to work for people with an entrepreneurial spirit.
