Why did you join Service West?
Flexibility and accessibility were two important factors that led me to join Service West. Because the company emphasizes the importance and value of team-family, both in our professional and personal lives, I had the opportunity to raise young children as a single parent while working full-time. When my children were growing up, my work schedule revolved around their schedules – not the other way around. When I had to drop them off and pick them up, to and from school, Service West allowed me that flexibility for nearly 12 years; I wouldn’t have received that same treatment at most workplaces.
What’s the best part about working at Service West?
The people – it’s a very family-oriented company with people who work hard and play hard. Our CEO Mark Vignoles has instilled those values in Service West, and that culture attracts the type of people I enjoy working with. I’ve worked with lots of great people throughout my career here because those values shine in every person who is hired to the team.
