What people say about working at HSG

If you enjoy hard work
and being dirty, sweaty,
and experiencing every
speck of weather MN
has, then you'll love this.
If you don't, then
you'll probably hate it.
This job will take a lot out of you physically,
but it will give you mental and emotional
strength that other less strenuous jobs
can sap from you.
There is both immediate
and delayed gratification.
Need to be reliable.
It is a small company.
Everyone counts.
We all count on each other.

Appreciation is felt.

Comradery is contagious.

Your mind will usually quit before your body.
You need the mental fortitude and grit to get
through the hard days.
Everyone actually wants to be here
and likes working here (or they don’t stay).
No disgruntled-ness.
