“I started with Windemuller in the summer of 2005, right after I graduated from high school. I had been a part of the Electrical Occupations program at the Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District Career-Tech Center in Traverse City, a vocational program focusing on electrical work. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for a living, but Windemuller ended up offering me a job and the rest was history.
In the years since, I’ve spent most of my time working on projects at Munson Medical Center. Windemuller is a preferred contractor for the hospital and we handle everything from minor remodels to brand-new buildings. I’ve had the privilege of working as an electrician and an electrical foreman on these projects, some of them around patients and visitors. I’ve enjoyed seeing the impact that Windemuller’s field work has on customers and the community in general.
Most of all, I love working with the people at Windemuller. Most of the guys who were here when I started working with the company are still here. It’s a very positive team environment and I can’t imagine not working with some of these guys. I value the relationships I’ve built and am so glad they are a part of my day-to-day work life.
I also appreciate the opportunities for growth that are available here.Windemuller values its employees, which I think shows in the fact that so many of my team members have been here as long as I have—if not longer. If I wanted to advance, whether to a project manager role or some sort of office supervisory job, I know that Windemuller would be on board to help me achieve those goals. For now, I’m enjoying my field work and how the responsibilities differ from one day to the next. And with a few exciting projects coming down the pipeline at Munson, I plan on staying in my current role for the foreseeable future. But it’s comforting to know that Windemuller will have my back whenever I’m ready to take a new step.”
