Arturo Jimenez recalls that his first introduction to Custom Contracting came when the man who would eventually hire him at the company made a presentation to Arturo’s class at the carpenter’s apprenticeship training program in Chicago. “When I heard him speak,” Arturo recalls, “I knew that Custom Contracting was a place I would like to work. He let me know he would be interested in hiring me. I interviewed and began working here in 2018.

 

“I liked working at Custom Contracting from the start. They didn’t just put me on one task day after day. They gave me an opportunity to get hands-on experience in lots of different areas, and that’s how I’ve been able to move up in the company.”

 

Arturo has gained extensive experience in occupied healthcare, a very challenging environment for construction work. “We have to contain the areas we work in very carefully to protect the staff and the patients they’re taking care of. We always think of ourselves as guests in their house and respect their space and the work they’re doing. That’s always our priority—to put their needs first.”

 

He says that Custom Contracting expects professionalism from everyone working on a project. “We always want to present the right image for our company, and that means acting and looking professional. In our work, you could run into the president of the hospital at any time, and you want to present yourself well.”

 

Arturo says that respect for others extends to the internal Custom Contracting team. “I always try to come to work with a good attitude toward my teammates. I know doing that creates positive energy around us and helps the work flow the way it should. That makes everyone, especially our clients, very happy.”
