Employee Spotlight: Stephen Schmidt

Each month, we like to highlight our employees, giving you an inside look of the hardworking individuals who make us who we are. This month, we want you to meet Stephen.

As a Foreman, Stephen spends his days leading, supervising, and training our Carpenters and Laborers, collaborating with our project managers, and assisting with all finish carpentry on a job. His strong work ethic, exemplary leadership, and beautiful craftmanship makes him a valuable asset to the Lycos team.

Q: What do you think are the best skills you bring to your job?

Leadership, attention to detail, and quality carpentry.

Q: What do you enjoy most about working at Lycos?

The overall feel and environment of the company. You feel like more than just a number here. When I started at Lycos 5 years ago, there were only 6 employees. And even now, with how big we've gotten in the past few years, everyone's opinions are still valued and considered. I like that every day is different and I'm never stuck doing the same task day in and day out. I'm visiting different job sites, working with different people, and problem solving anywhere I can.

Q: What has been your favorite job you worked on and why?

I don't think I have a single favorite. I just like seeing all of our hard work finished. It's fun to visit these jobs after they're done and walk around, pointing out all the things that I had a part in.

Q: How long have you been in construction?

For about 10-15 years. I've been at Lycos for the last 5.

Q:What do you like to do when you're not at work?

I like to farm and spend time with my wife and 2 kids.
