My favorite part when working out in the field is the smile I see on the customer’s face after installing a machine or trouble shooting and fixing an issue the customer encounter’s. Heidelberg is a great company I am proud to be a part of.
I love my coworkers and everyone here has put me in a position to succeed.
This program has been challenging, but it inspires me to go through another day.
