“The working environment definitely made the experience feel more like surrounding yourself with family and close friends. My supervisor, office engineers, and the field inspectors took me in and taught me the ways of working on a highway project during its construction operations. I definitely learned a lot from listening and engaging in on-site and office work opportunities that my coworkers provided to me.”
