I had no intentions of taking this job! No intentions of working for a company after I had been on my own for so long.

I had worked for decades, as a builder, remodeler, HVAC specialist—I had 30 years construction experience. However, after talking with the management I quickly realized the unique opportunity FSM presented.

FSM’s reputation is incredibly important. Working for a company that puts customers ahead of the bottom line was the kind of company I wanted to work for.

I’ve been with FSM for almost the entire time it’s been in business. I was able to get in on the ground floor and have been amazed how they have grown while keeping the same vision-- taking care of the customer.

I feel lucky to be able to grow personally with the company as well. I was hired as an Inspector before advancing to Assistant Inspections Manager and now Inspections Manager. This growth has allowed me to take care of my family in ways I never imagined, both in compensation and time.

Observing both personal and professional growth for others at FSM is another reason why I enjoy working here. When FSM management recognizes a valuable skill set in an employee, regardless of their current position, they do everything in their power to help them be the best they can be. A new inspector has the same opportunities as the salesman who has been with us for 10 years.

I love working for FSM, and I am so proud to work here. As we’ve grown, and continue to grow I’m proud to offer the same high standard of service that FSM has built their reputation on for more than 10 years.

The best thing about working at FSM is seeing the fruits of your labor everyday. You honestly get back what you put in. The more you take care of your customers, the more detailed you are, the more diligent… the more reward you get. Both financially and personally.

I joined FSM as an inspector about 7 years ago, I worked hard to take care of my customers— about a year ago I was promoted to Assistant Inspections Manager. To be recognized for my hard work with such a promotion makes me very proud.

I love the people I work with, they are like a mini family. Honestly, if I ever left FSM I would have to make new friends, so it’s a good thing I don’t plan on going anywhere.

Financially FSM has changed my life. It has afforded myself and my family a better lifestyle. We are doing things that I never thought possible. I’m not worried about things like health insurance or where my next paycheck is coming from, the level of financial security is something I am very thankful for.
