Foreman - Frank DiSabatino
What does this job and working at this company mean to you?
This job is my life, my home. It’s where I live. It’s who I am. I’m 50 years old. I’ve worked for the Corrados for 23 years. I’ve grown with the family and the company. I make a good living, provide for my kids. Every day I’m challenged in different ways. When I get off work, I leave the site knowing I’ve contributed to the progress of the job.
I started out as a laborer, learning how
to set up lasers for grades and how to install pipework. Once I started operating equipment, I learned what each piece of equipment was capable of doing. In time, I started running my own jobs – small ones at first. Now I can run any size project no matter the size, challenges or schedule.
What are the requirements and skills needed for your job?
To oversee a site project, you need to know about equipment, have basic math skills, be able to calculate percentages. And you need to have common sense in this position. As a foreman, you need to be willing to learn and willing to work. You have to be open-minded. Someone may have a better idea. Don’t shut them out because you have more experience.
