Congratulations on 5 years of service, Caleb!
Thank you for all you do!
Caleb Alexander has been with STT Security for 5 years today; read about his time with STT below!
When did you start working for STT?
I started just over five years ago by doing event security at CMU sporting events. I think I started during football season but ended up working basketball and volleyball games, wrestling tournaments, and commencement ceremonies.
What have you done while working for us? How many sites/positions have you been in?
For at least two years – I really can’t remember – I worked an auto show, continued to work CMU events, and I worked a festival one year too. I’ve also worked at construction sites and at a hotel. Every site has its own pros and cons; all of them are different. Some of those jobs are night shifts and I prefer that; I currently work 2nd shift and I like it. I’m working at a hospital right now and have been for about three years.
What has been your favorite part about working for STT?
I really like the flexibility of the job. It’s easy to make contacts with different supervisors and sites, and you never know where you can end up at. The change in work environment is nice and it brings something new to the job every now and then. I got my current job because an employee at the site recommended me to the supervisor; I got a phone call from the supervisor and got offered a part-time position which quickly turned into a full-time job.
What is your favorite story/experience from working with us?
Towards the top of my list is working an auto show a couple years back. The weather was awful and there was a low turnout because of that. Security and the event organizers all spent time just hanging out; I made a few friends that weekend. Usually, work is busy, and you don’t have a lot of down time to talk with the people you work with, but this was different because we were all able to hangout. That was a nice change!
What advice would you give to a new employee?
I would say you should branch out and get as much experience as you can. Try not to get stagnant in one position – ask for more responsibility if possible and that can lead you into different positions or jobs at new sites.
