Before NCE Homes: Snap-on Tools

“NCE Homes has been an amazing company to work with. Each owner and employee makes coming into the office an enjoyable experience. Before, when I worked for Snap On Tools, I ran a truck by myself and there wasn’t much communication to the other trucks and employees unless we needed a tool. Here at NCE, we are able to communicate inside and outside the office with activities like golfing on the weekends. They also have employee cookouts every few months which is always a great time for friends and family. I first discovered NCE about a month or two before they opened. A friend told me about the company and it intrigued me to reach out and see if they had any spots open for work. Within a few weeks, I was on the phones helping homeowners get their projects underway. Since I have been here, the company has grown so much with so much more potential to grow. NCE has given me many opportunities to better my lifestyle, and enjoy the things I like to do outside the office like golfing, fishing and more time with my family. I see myself with this great company for a long time to come and can’t wait to see the tremendous growth over the next few years.”

"When I was discovered by NCE Homes it was perfect timing because I was getting to the point where I realized I need to change something. I really wanted to make something of myself and pursue goals I wanted to accomplish in my life. It just really felt like it was the time I needed to do something better for myself. One of my concerns was that I was too introverted for the position – from my days in undergrad I had the stigma of not being a people person. Luckily, the recruiting manager saw the qualities in me and helped me to believe that I could be successful if I dedicate myself to my personal and professional growth.

My experience here at NCE Homes has been extremely supportive of the mission I want to accomplish as a professional. All of my supervisors have been helping me to understand the skills-based mindset, opposed to “you are who you are”. I’ve learned that you can practice and improve on your weaknesses at your own pace and gradually see great results. I’m very proud to say I have seen some great results, as well as just enjoying people a lot more and truly consider myself more of a people person. I really like the culture here because it reminds me of a mix between a family and a sports team environment. I enjoy it because everybody is pretty cordial, but there’s that friendly competition that pushes each of my teammates to be better, which is something I had never experienced before. Due to the expansion of my social skills, I have grown tremendously. This is the type of job where you have to face your fears and insecurities with regards to people because that is how you will eat. This is a field that rewards persistence and diligence, you have to be constantly moving. Although I haven’t always been this way in the past, through external pressure and encouragement from supervisors, I have been slowly learning how to keep at it and I am beginning to see the fruits of my labor. My core values are the pursuit of mastery, pursuit of incremental improvements, integrity and conviction. Fortunately, in the process of getting to know my supervisors I’ve experienced that NCE’s values fall right in line with mine. There’s an alignment here that I am sufficiently satisfied with and I honestly see myself being here pursuing my career with NCE Homes.”
