Our team has grown quite a bit this year, and one of the new inspectors we’ve happily welcomed to the team is Skyler Martin! Read on to learn more about him, his background and what he likes best about his position at BPC.
BPC: How did you hear about BPC, and when did you come on board?
Skyler: I found out about this job opportunity on a Facebook group called “Navy Nuke Job Finder”. Del had posted about BPC there. And I started [at BPC] in February.
BPC: What kind of objects do you inspect, and what are some of the most interesting things you’ve seen on the job?
Skyler: I’ll be inspecting boilers and pressure vessels, and some interesting things I’ve seen so far are coal fired boilers and a boiler that’s seven stories high!
BPC: What do you enjoy most about working here?
Skyler: There are many things that I enjoy about working at BPC: The benefits are really good – like a company car – as well as help with the phone bill. The pay is really good, and I also like the freedom to complete the work whenever is most convenient for me. I sometimes work [an evening schedule], because that’s what fit best into my schedule that day.
BPC: What do you think sets BPC apart from your competitors?
Skyler: At BPC, we try to answer our customers within 24 hours. Also, the company pays us by the hour instead of a salary – that makes a difference, because sometimes salaried employees are overworked and not compensated correctly, whereas if we work overtime, we’re compensated accordingly for our work.
We’re so glad to have you on the team, Skyler!
