Employee Spotlight

Corey Giles Rising Star and Pipe Foreman at William A. Hazel, Inc.

Corey Giles

Rising Star Pipe foreman

I started my career with Hazel as a laborer on a pipe crew. I was able to refine my skills through the years because the company created a space for me to learn with hands-on training. With hard work, dedication, and consistency, I was able to be promoted to a pipe foreman.

Since the promotion, I have felt nothing but support from our leadership, they make sure I have the proper resources and tools needed to complete our utility projects safely and efficiently. Whether it’s ordering pipe supplies with those in the yard or requesting specific materials with dispatch, they strive to ensure essential resources are delivered timely.

The best advice I would give to someone starting out in our industry is to work hard, show enthusiasm and with consistency, this company will reward your hard work. We live out our vision of being the first choice in employer and the right choice in sitework.

Employees Making a Difference

A Hazel employee in a red truck had his PPE on and moving debris/cut up trees out of the road and directing traffic. I was unable to get the truck number or a real description of the employee, but he was doing a damn good job keeping the traffic moving. His efforts saved me a long detour of heading back to Warrenton.

We're proud of our employee, Justin Southard, for stepping up to the task and living up to our Legacy of Dependability!

Roger Shirk is a one-of-a-kind man. In my time at Hazel and other companies, I have never met a better teacher, hard working individual, or company man like Roger. He is always thinking about his crew and takes care of us day in and day out. He is the definition of a man's man. I am grateful to have had such a great teacher who has given me the skills and strength I need to succeed

All of us who lead strive to have that kind of impact on those we lead. Thank You Roger for your great example of leadership.

When the top of a live sewer manhole was crushed by another contractor working on-site, filling the sewer lines with debris, sewer began to backup jeopardizing several businesses in the neighborhood. Robbie Hensley, Project Superintendent, took control of a very tense situation, organizing and coordinating the response that averted a major contamination issue.

Thank You Robbie for your quick action and cool head, making all the right calls to save the day for the neighborhood and our customer.

Lance Toone isn't just a nice guy to work for, but a very hard worker. I've watched him operate every piece of equipment on a daily basis including a Volve truck. I've heard guys complain Lance is working beyond the normal hours just to get the job done. The word exemplary is not even adequate in describing Lance because he goes above and beyond the call of duty. I think Lance is the greatest boss I've ever worked for.

Thank You Lance for leading by example every single day.
