FundyPros’ partnership with School to Work Transition ProgramFriday, June 1 2012
Last November, Matthew Benner, a student from the School to Work Transition Program, joined our team at FundyPros Specialty Construction. He mostly worked with the drywall division on the construction of Empire Theatres in Dieppe. His tasks involved cleaning, material maintenance and suspended ceilings work. This 5 months work term program gave Matthew the opportunity to combine education and work environment to allow him to find success in a future career.
«I learned a lot at FundyPros. It was hard work, but I felt like I was learning something. I also learned stuff that I didn’t know how to do before. It was a pretty enjoyable experience. »- Matthew Benner, student from the School to Work Transition Program
« Matthew is very adaptable, pleasant to work with and highly dependable. I would love the opportunity to work with somebody with the same motivation and attitude. »- Jeff Crawford, supervisor of the commercial drywall division
Since FundyPros is continuously encouraging its employees to learn, Matthew had the chance to take his scissor lift and fall protection certifications during that period of time.
