JIM MCMILLAN FEATURED IN DAILY TIMES ARTICLE

Construction is a rewarding but also a demanding career field – a fact driven home by Hickory vice president Jim McMillan in a recent article published by The Daily Times. The article, dated March 3, addressed how workers in the construction industry routinely deal with demanding schedules as well as weather and safety-related challenges.

McMillan related these factors to the process Hickory Construction goes through when hiring new workers – one that involves making sure potential hires are well prepared for their jobs.

McMillan is quoted in the story as saying that in addition to proper skills training, new employees can benefit from “aptitude, common sense, a sense of urgency, good listening skills and a professional attitude.” He also noted that while tech jobs are popular these days, people can still find solid futures in trade careers.

“I’m proud that we’ve put a good team together, and we elevate people to have a better career than they thought they ever could have,” McMillan said.
