Q.) Tell me about where you came from, how’d you end up in Boston?
A.) Originally born and raised in Puerto Rico, I moved to Florida to attend high school. I was looking for a better education and looking ahead into college, so Boston obviously was the best choice. With a ton of great schools to choose from, I attended Emmanuel College right next to Fenway Park! Fun times.
Q.) What brought you to Tank Utility?
A.) Tank Utility was actually my second job out of college. My first full-time job was at a start-up, and I was there for 5 months when I realized it just wasn’t a good fit. So I applied to Tank Utility and I’ve been working here for 2 years. I have no regrets!
Q.) In your opinion, what’s the best thing about Tank Utility?
A.) No question, the people. You’re spending 40 to 50 hours a week in the office, so I think people have been the best part. Not just being with nice people, but people that are going to challenge you to be better. I like learning about people that come from different backgrounds and what they’re working on, or where they came from.
Q.) What have you gained from working here?
A.) That’s a loaded question… I’ve learned everything about a lot of things! I learned a lot about myself and how to carry myself in a professional setting and grow on my own. I learned to see things from a CEO’s perspective on running a business and what it takes to get there. I learned how to interview people and hire good people to continue to grow. Being exposed to these kinds of things has been very valuable!
