What made you want to work for Sundt?
I was working as a Design Engineer with an engineering firm before joining Sundt. We collaborated with Sundt many times so I had an idea of Sundt’s reputation. I interviewed with Sundt on a Friday for the position of Estimator and the process was so quick that I was offered the job with an official offer letter the following Tuesday, which was really impressive. I met the whole team in Tempe and they were very welcoming and super friendly.
How do you spend a typical work day?
Lately, I am working on a project so we have a daily meeting early in the morning. I usually like to organize myself with the priority of work that I have to complete throughout the day and perform as needed. I usually like to complete my work and ask if anybody needs my help so that I can learn new things.
Where would you like your career to be in 10 years?
I would like to be in a successful managerial position.
Where’s your favorite place to travel?
I like going to theme parks. Sometimes, I just want to visit a pleasant place and read a book by the lake.
Do you have a hidden talent?
I do not have a hidden talent. I am just interested in playing badminton and doing crafts when I am free. I also like to volunteer in various places.
