What do you do at Schnabel?
I support our office and construction employees in whatever capacity they need. A big part of my job involves keeping paper moving through our office such as credit card backups, supplier invoices, and credit card statements. I also keep our office stocked with supplies, process credit apps, work on AIA contracts, take care of our office equipment, reconcile the petty cash bank statements, collect union wages and fringes, and schedule training for our Midwest Region employees.
What does an average day look like for you?
On an average day, I normally open and answer all emails right away, follow up on unpaid invoices, code and distribute supplier invoices/credit statements to the appropriate person for approval and support the office and field staff as needed.
What is your biggest professional accomplishment at Schnabel?
I was involved in the implementation of our CLC program and now I am the administrator! Some of my other big professional accomplishments include learning how to use Bluebeam software, starting a book for EEO (equal employment opportunity) documentation, creating a system to organize safety training for field employees, and learning how to use AIA Contract software.
What is your favorite part about working for Schnabel?

I also enjoy that I get to help our field employees. It’s important that they know I am here for them because I know how hard it is to be away from their families.
