What do you do in your position?
I provide exempt-level staffing assistance for a number of the divisions within the Oldcastle Materials Group. I partner with the HR Management and Hiring Managers to identify talent, facilitate a consistent offer process and ensure a strong candidate experience overall.
How long have you worked for Oldcastle?
Where is your job located?
What do you like about working here?
The people! We have an outstanding team here in Rochester that is constantly evolving. I also enjoy the opportunity we have to make a significant and long term impact on the business.
What are the best parts of your job?
The reward of creating opportunities for others and building relationships internally.
Why do you think Oldcastle is a good place to work?
There is a strong focus on individual development and creating a path for advancement.
How would your coworkers describe you?
Hmmm… I’d guess they would say I’m a person who is always upbeat, smiling and wanting to help – if you can get me out of my office.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
Trail running (lots of it), and anything my son Chase may be interested in doing with me.
Would you like to share anything about your family?
I have been married for 11 years to Emily (who I met in college). We have a 7-year old son named Chase and a golden retriever named Tank.
Just for fun, we want to know – what was your first job ever?
I worked for a family-run pizza shop during the Summer (from the age of 15 to 21). My mom never had to worry about us going hungry!
Do you have any funny or interesting work stories to share?
I do have one from my first job. One time, I was very engaged in conversation and was shaking an Italian dressing bottle. What I didn’t realize was that I sprayed oil onto the whole line of customers. It was an expensive dry cleaning bill!
