Heavy Equipment Operations Manager

“I didn’t really have construction experience before working at MJE, but a friend told me I should apply, and the money was great, so I did. I’ve always felt like you can learn whatever you need on the job — work ethic matters more than anything. My willingness to show up every day and get the job done is what counted, and those values still help me now. Between my consistent effort and the confidence that my supervisor has had in me, I’ve become surer of myself and been able to move up throughout the company over the years. Today I’m the heavy equipment operations manager, which means I oversee all heavy equipment projects. We typically have around eight to ten projects happening at a time and each project employs anywhere from 10-35 crew members. Looking back, I feel a strong sense of pride at all the progress I’ve made.”
