Carrier Upgrades

When I started working in the telecommunications industry it was a bright sunny June day in 1999 in Tecumseh, MI. I recall that I initially took the job because they were offering one dollar more an hour then what I was making as a full time cook at a rural restaurant. I was 20 years old and needed a change from the current job I had.  At that time, I didn’t jump into a job with thoughts of making a career out of it, and additionally, cell phones were still a rare sight and I knew nothing about them or towers. At One Way Wireless Construction (One Way), the freedoms and brotherhood were apparent on the first site I set foot on and even though we were at work, it was a lot of fun.  The scenery was always changing from site to site, as were the multitude of different jobs and tasks along the way. I recall after my first tower stack site, that I finally had the clarity and mindset that this actually could BE a career for me. I still drive past some of those towers and take pride that I was a part of building that tower which will be there for years to come. The industry has come a long way from then to now with a multitude of different career paths in telecommunications and beyond.  I’m happy to be a part of this industry.
