Employee Profile -Paul Hay

“Paul is as calm and cool as the center seed of a cucumber,”
describes Waterproofing Senior Project Manager, Pat Halaszyn,
“that’s why Chamberlin employees and clients alike enjoy working
with him.” As a waterproofing superintendent, we were curious to
know how Paul handles the occasional twists and turns of overseeing
large waterproofing projects throughout central and south Texas.
Here’s a bit more about the guy who takes it all in stride.


A Day In the Life:
The day starts at about 5:30 a.m. for Paul with a quick check of
the weather since it plays an important role in the installation of
waterproofing material. “After that, there really is no ‘typical’ day,”
Paul says. With constantly changing manpower needs, job site
conditions and scheduling issues, the day can change from hour
to hour. “Simultaneously supervising multiple projects can be
challenging, demanding and rewarding at the same time.”


Experience:
“I worked in a lot of different fields before joining Chamberlin
10 years ago,” Paul remembers. He did everything from fast food
management to retail inventory and even operating a taxi service.
In March of 2001, Paul started his career at Chamberlin as a
laborer. Over a period of time, with a combination of hard work
and “being in the right place at the right time,” Paul says, he was
promoted to foreman then superintendent.


Outlook:
Paul articulates his outlook on customer service, safety, quality
and productivity as such: “Each affects the other. If we are not
productive, providing quality work in a safe manner, our
customer service will inevitably suffer. Customer service is the
lifeblood of repeat business. Safety is the cornerstone of our
employees’ health and well-being, and productivity is useless
without a quality installation.”


Outside the Office:
Paul enjoys cooking and boasts a Veal Piccata specialty with a
white wine and lemon caper sauce. Just one question: when
can we come over for dinner? He also likes spending time
with his wife and kids and taking part in his other hobbies that
include fishing, woodworking and watching movies.
