What does it take to be a successful apprentice?
"Have patience and pay attention to the little details."
What is the most valuable thing you have learned through your apprenticeship experience?
"Teamwork. We can’t accomplish our goals if we don’t work together as a team. We have to stay focused on our work and pay attention to the details."
Can you describe a typical work day?
"We start the day by doing warm ups for 10-15 minutes. Most of us drive pretty far in the morning, so by the time we get into work we are stiff. It’s important to stretch and loosen up for safety purposes. Then we go see what the activities and goals are for the day. From there, we break up and go accomplish them. I usually finish my day around 3:30."
