Employee Spotlight: Nick Piazza

Nick is a tech in Cleveland for Dept. 2 and has worked at CTL for just over 3 years!

Most important part of your job?  A wise man once told me “the best ability is availability”, which I believe is incredibly applicable in our line of work. A technician can hold up a whole construction crew by being late or absent, so being present and on time everyday is one of the most important parts of my job.

Coolest place visited or the most fun thing you did so far last year?  The most fun thing I did this year was witnessing the Cleveland Cavaliers historic NBA title run. I attended game 3 and game 6 of the finals and was in downtown Cleveland for game 7 and the championship parade.

What is your favorite genre of music?  I love 90’s gangster rap!

What was your favorite movie in high school?  In high school my friends and I would watch Fight Club in my basement like every weekend and drink a bunch of soda and pretend we were hosting our own fight club.

Your most embarrassing or funny moment?   My most embarrassing moment happened when I was in Panama City Beach for spring break my senior year of college. I was in a club and was walking down some stairs towards the dance floor when I tripped and landed right on my face in front of everyone on the dance floor. I stood up and everyone had stopped dancing and was just staring at me.

What is your favorite thing about CTL?  I love the confidence and trust that my managers have in me, allowing me to work in the field independently and get the job done without unnecessary oversight or micromanagement.

What makes CTL Important to our industry?  We insure that contractors perform their duties according to the specifications laid out by project engineers and that the materials they are using meet project specifications.

What advice would you give someone just starting out?  Be willing to work on any project and do any job that is asked of you. The more you learn, the more valuable you become. Oh, and don’t complain too much, it’s annoying.
