Picture this: It is just two days until Christmas, 8 inches of snow just fell in the past eight hours, and your business caters to last-minute shoppers. Every retail location in town is shut down -- except yours.
This is when you are glad you partnered with people who think strategically about snow removal and go out of their way for your business. People who are problem solvers. People who inherently understand the layout of your property and know where a snow pile would impede traffic or create an unsafe environment. Our people.
At Swinter, people are our greatest asset.
Snow is unpredictable and, when not managed correctly, can become a liability to your company. We hire people who can think on their feet, who actually get an adrenaline rush when a storm front changes.
Our people are snow people.
During the interview process, we discuss the pressure, the stress, the need to deliver excellence even when sleep-deprived with a clipboard full of problems. Some people start getting nervous. Some just sit there. But a few people, the right people, get a sparkle in their eye. Those are Swinter people.
Swinter’s success comes from identifying passionate people and then treating them well. We promote from within. It’s not unusual to have a team member who starts as an operator, and then moves up to a site manager, an area manager, an account manager and higher.
When you contract your snow removal service, remember that it’s not the equipment that will make the difference. It’s the person who’s operating it.
