NEW HIRE AT CORPORATE
There is a new face in the Accounting Department and her name is Rachael Rodriguez. She started this month as the new Branch Accounting Coordinator. Her current duties include accounts payable for the Fresno and Marina branches.
Rachael has an Associate’s Degree in accounting and over 20 years of accounting experience. She is a born and raised Stocktonian who has three girls, Marissa (27), Arieanna (22) & Lilia (13). You would never believe it but she is also a grandma to grandson, Devin (9). In addition important members of her family include her pitbull, Winston and cats, Molly and Nala. Rachael’s girls are her best friends and she enjoys hanging out with them, shopping for shoes, baking, playing dominos, and watching her favorite channel, Investigation Discovery. She enjoys history and one day hopes to visit the Roman Colosseum.
Can you guess who her celebrity look alike is?
Welcome to the Collins Family, Rachael!

“Cumulative Impact on Change Orders” Class with Dr. Awad Hanna
This one day seminar was focused on three areas. First, proper management of change orders which involves setting up mechanisms to handle the change orders as they occur on the project. Proper management attempts to preempt later disagreements. Second, legal considerations involve prior case studies and acceptable theories of recovery. The third area of focus in this seminar is how to quantify loss of labor efficiency and price change order including forward pricing.

Core Value of the Week: RELIABLE
Stop by the service department at the Metro Branch and find some weekly inspiration.
Justin Barrington, Service Manager recently made Gaby Addi, Service Administrator and Lea Rummel, Service Coordinator memo boards for their birthdays made out of old pallets. The Metro service department got together and decided they will update the memo board on a weekly basis to spread some encouraging words to the office.
Even though we work hard, we play hard too. Every week, we’ll show off our most important resource: the Collins Electrical staff.
This week, we introduce to you…HAROLD YELEY, PreFab Manager and TICKER from the American Heart Association. To sign up for a team or donate to the 2018 Heart and Stroke Walk click the button below. Thank you to all who have already donated.
