Q & A with Chris
Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Chris Hawkins. I’m 36 years old and live in Bremen, Kentucky. I have a beautiful little family that includes four children, three girls and one boy ranging in age from 7 to 15, they are a handful, but I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
How long have you been with Broadlinc?
I have been with the company for almost three years.
What brought you to the company?
At the time, I moved into a new house and had my internet set up with Broadlinc, which had great deals on services I needed. When the technician came and set up my internet, we chatted a bit and had a great conversation. After a few days passed, one of Broadlinc’s trucks pulled into my driveway. So I went to talk to the man to see what the problem was, and he asked me if I would be interested in a job. Of course, I delightfully agreed and have been with the company ever since.
What do you like most about being a System Technician?
I like the ever-evolving environment of my job. I like that I never stop learning; there’s never a dull moment.
