Sr. Project Manager
In 1986 I had just finished a project in Wyoming and was looking for a job, at the time Sletten (Weststates) had an office in Sheridan. I called and there was no work in Wyoming so I got the Phoenix office number which I called and talked to Ron McCullough. The Phoenix division had just been awarded two elementary schools and needed a superintendent. Ron and I talked several times that Monday morning, checking references etc and I was hired on the phone. I had never been to Arizona and not sure I would like the area or not so I suggested a 6 week trial, in 6 weeks if either one of us were not happy with the other we would part friends, Ron thought that was a good idea so two days later I was on the road to Phoenix. Two weeks later my family came to visit the Phoenix area and loved it. A moving company was hired and I never went back, not even to pack, and the rest is history. I've enjoyed several positions while working for Sletten, from project superintendent to project manager on all types of projects including crane operator, semi truck driver and enjoyed the opportunity to work for and help develop this ESOP Company into what it is today. I believe what sets the company apart is the family orientated environment and working with a great bunch of co-workers and managers.
The reason I choose Sletten in 2001 was at the time I had my first interview I got the feeling that if I went to work for this company it would be a long lasting career move. I met with Erik Sletten, KC Errett, and Tim Malone. It felt to be the right thing to do.
I was working on a Church in Sun Valley Idaho for an Idaho Contractor I was contacted by a head hunter. He gave me several options for locations I mentioned to him that if I was interested in a new job it would need to be with a stable company in a warmer climate. He gave me several options Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Nevada and he made the comment that there is a Company in Las Vegas that would be the ideal Company to work for.
I have been here over 11 years; everyone I have worked with has treated more like family rather than co worker. Sletten is an ESOP company with great benefits and opportunity to grow. One key aspect of working at Sletten, that I respect Employees have positive attitudes and pride within the company and we all strive to do a great job for our clients and we go the extra mile.
Joining Sletten has been the best career move I could have made.
I actually came upon working at Sletten by pure luck! My husband and I had just been married in the fall of 1995 which is why I had moved to the Boise area. I had been working as a temp and was actually working at another job when the temp agency offered me a chance to interview with Sletten in February 2006. I had my interview with Ron Hagen, Boise Area Manager and Vice President, and I knew right away it would be a great company to work for. Ron offered me the position and I started as a temp in February 2006. I was actually hired on permanently in June 2006 as a Sletten Employee and I am the Office Administrator for the Boise Office.
Sletten is unique in many ways! We are employee owned and have a great ESOP Plan. Along with that we have great benefits for employees and it is a very family oriented company. It's also a very comfortable company to work for – it's professional, yet everyone is very friendly. I enjoy being part of the Sletten Team!
