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 Fernando.

We sat Fernando down and asked him a few questions about the work he does, the best skills he brings to the job, and the mentor who's helped him the most in his career.

Q: What is your role at Lycos and what are some of your job responsibilities?

I am a Lead Fabricator and Installer for Lycos Manufacturing. I mostly work on job sites installing and repairing solid surface countertops, but I also work in the shop fabricating when they need me.

Q: What do you think are the best skills you bring to your job?

I'm a good problem solver. Whenever something goes wrong, I'm right there trying to fix it. And I'd also say I'm hardworking. I always tell my crew, let's finish our jobs the same day we start, which sometimes means putting in extra hours to get it done.

Q: What do you enjoy most about working at Lycos?

The people. Everybody is so fun and even if the job is hard, I'm still having a good time because I'm with my crew.

Q: What's your favorite thing about working in construction?

I like the challenges that come along with it. And I like overhearing people say "Oh wow, that's cool" to a top I'm installing.

Q: Mentor who has helped you the most in your career:

Mike Pelzer. He's worked here for so long and knows so much. He's just very patient, you know? Especially when he's teaching me something new. He's also just really fun to work with.

Q: If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

An eagle. Because they're free. And not a lot of people kill or hunt them so I'd be safe.  Plus, it would be cool to fly.

Q:What do you like to do when you're not at work?

I like to spend time with my kids bike-riding, playing soccer, or just hanging out at home.

Q: Favorite vacation spot?

Hmm, probably North Carolina in the mountains. I've only been once, but I absolutely loved it there.

Q:What's one thing you couldn't live without?

My kids.

Hands-down, the people.

Being a mom. I love being a mom. And now a grandma, too!

Q: What's one thing most people don't know about you?

Oh gosh, I don't know. I'm an open book.

Q: If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

A gorilla. I'm not sure why, I just think they're cool.

Anything outdoors. I love to garden - I am currently growing onion and tomato plants.

My family.
