Long-term potential among Michels' draws
Career Fair on Feb. 25
Joe Steinbach and Chase Krapfl attended Michels career fairs.
Chase Krapfl and Joe Steinbach had different motives for attending a Michels Corporation career fair, but both were looking for growth potential.
Despite working in various industries, Chase always had his eye on Michels. The career fair in 2015 was neither the first time he applied at Michels nor attended one of our career fairs. His determination paid off when he was offered a supply warehouse specialist position.
“I’ve never been happier at a job than I am here,” he said.
Joe saw a newspaper ad for Michels’ 2014 career fair one day before it was to be held. A career mechanic, Joe was looking for a change and decided to see what Michels had to offer. Following an interview at the career fair, Joe was called in for an interview for a mechanic position in Michels’ horizontal directional drilling shop.
“The yard is amazing,” he said. “There is a lot of variety and a lot of opportunity to grow.”
Joe is optimistic that the on-the-job training he receives will lead to expanded roles at Michels. Chase likes the fast pace of his current position and hopes to grow with the company.
“This is a great place to work,” he said. “I hope to retire from here!”
