What Our Employees Are Saying About Southwestern Solar

7-2010-006We appreciate and cherish all of our employees and partners at Southwestern Solar, and recently, we wanted to ask them what they liked about working with us. What we heard back was an awesome testament to Southwestern SolarĀ and the Green Valley area. We collected answers and here’s what they had to say:

Why do you like working for Southwestern Solar?

We love the team and how well the company treats us.

When you aren’t working at Southwestern Solar, what do you like to do in your free time?

Spending time with family, watching/playing football, and eating good food.

What are some of your favorite things to do around Green Valley?

Hike Madera Canyon, the weather is great for pretty much anything outdoors! We also enjoy U of A games and great restaurants in Tucson.

Green Valley is celebrating their 50 year anniversary this year and we have been here for 47 of those years. Why?

We take pride in what we do. We care for our customers. We are honest and will always do what is right and ethical.

What is the best part about your job?

Helping people, serving customers, and solving problems.

What about the worst part?

Being on a 130 degree roof in the middle of the summer.

What is your favorite time of the year?

(Here the house was divided) The summer because all the snow birds and college students are gone. The winter because it is the best weather and we don’t have to deal with that white stuff, except occasionally in the mountains.

There is a reason we have been around for 47 of the 50 years Green Valley has been around, and it’s because of a team like this. There is nothing better than appreciating the hard work and dedication they put in to making us such a great company all while having fun. With basketball season and Green Valley’s 50th anniversary fast approaching, let’s celebrate what makes our team and our company so great.
