Since I have been in the industry for 17 years, I am encouraged to share my input and experiences, while I am also being taught new means and methods to approach the drywall industry.

I’ve worked at the company for 10 years and have always felt, not only appreciated for the work that I do, but also valued as a person. This was especially true this past spring when I received an outpouring of support from Raymond employees across all of our offices after my first child was diagnosed with a devastating medical condition. I was so moved by everyone’s concern, and so grateful for the ability to create a flexible schedule to care for my family. It makes me feel privileged to come to work every day with such incredible people.
