What makes Lycos so special? Our people. Each month, we like to highlight our employees, giving you an inside look of the hardworking individuals who make us who we are. This month, we want you to meet Patrick.
Patrick joined the Lycos team in July 2018 as an Apprentice / Laborer.
In his role, Patrick assists with carpentry installs including casework, doors, countertops, and accessories, cleaning up the job site at the end of the day, carrying supplies from the truck to the job site, and helping wherever else he can on the job. With his upbeat attitude and passion for learning, Patrick has quickly grasped the construction world and has proven to be a valuable asset to our team.
We sat Patrick down, and asked him a few questions about working at Lycos, what he brings to the table, and what he likes to do outside of work.
Q: What do you think are the best skills you bring to your job?
My energy, willingness to learn, organization skills, and being able to get my work done in a timely manner.
Q: What do you enjoy most about working at Lycos?
Oh, there's a lot. The atmosphere, mostly. Every crew is like a family here and it makes work easier when everyone is so close. I also like how each day is different and we get the opportunity to travel to different job sites if we want to. And of course, working on a job from start to finish.
Q: What has been your favorite job you worked on and why?
As of right now, I don't have one. I've only been working at Lycos for about a year, so a lot of the guys point out jobs we've worked on in the past, and I think it's so cool just how many we've completed and been a part of.
Q: How long have you been in construction?
1 year. Lycos is my first time working in construction.
Q: What do you like about the construction industry?
The work utilizes my energy, I like working with my hands, and I think the work itself is very calming. Also, since I'm new to the industry, I'm having fun learning new things every day, like learning how to read blueprints and just learning from the Foreman and other crew members.
Q: Do you have a motto or a favorite quote you live by? If so, what is it?
"Live with peace"
Q:What do you like to do when you're not at work?
I like to play paintball, spend time with my wife and dog, and hang out with my friends.
