In 1997, I was fortunate enough to accept a position working directly under Sears to become a field quality manager: inspecting about 30 crew’s making sure their work was up to the standards and quality of Sears, in addition to running my own crews of about 20 employees. My teams continued to work on completing jobs installing siding, windows, and roofs, in addition to branching out and completing builds of porches and decks.
