First job: My first job was working for my Dad’s company when I was about nine or ten. At the time, he had the contract to supply all the necessary hardware to assemble the windmills on the Altamont Pass. I received 1 cent for each bolt, washer and nut I put together and packaged. I made about $1-2 dollars a day. It was a great way to buy all the ice cream and candy you could want over summer break.
How I got started as a fleet manager: While I was working in the used department my job focus was on building and prepping used equipment to be sold. As you all know, good equipment is hard to come by and I quickly learned what was needed to build the quality forklifts we supply on a daily basis. This skill led to managing our internal rental fleet as well as our customer-owned full maintenance accounts and out came the Fleet Manager I am today.
What I like about my job: Every day is completely different and presents new challenges in helping customers achieve their goals.
What It's Like Working at TMHNC: TMHNC sets its self apart from other employers because of the family-like atmosphere. We work hard, and we do it together as a team.
Favorite movie: The Original Batman. You can’t beat Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne and Jack Nicholson as the Joker.
More about John: When I have free time, I like to get outside and be free. Truth be told this doesn’t happen a lot with two younger kids but when I do, I like to mountain bike, snowboard and hit the open road for a drive.
