What initially drew you to Portacool? How did you first get involved with Portacool?
I needed a job and many people around told me that Portacool was a great place to work and they were right!

What is your favorite thing about working at Portacool?
I really like my job. My bosses and coworkers are all great. I love the environment and the benefits – the company is very good to their workers. These days there are not many companies – at least around here – that will pay for employee insurance. Portacool does and it is a wonderful thing to have!

Years ago, I won a television at the one of the company events. It was such an exciting thing! It is also so nice for the company to do things like that for the employees. It really motivates us all to work hard each day and keep coming back day to day.
