For my part in this team I am always happy to contribute whatever I possibly can to ensure the success of the group. Sometimes that is working long hours but it is always very rewarding. This company has heart, takes care of its employees and also gives back to the community. It's really fun to come to work every day. How many people can say that! I love it."

“I worked with CES as an I.T. and Networking Consultant many years before becoming an Employee.
They had lost almost everything in a fire and were moving into a building I knew well, on to a network I had designed, so I was more than happy to help.
Long story short, by the time I was done, I had replaced most of their computer technology, most of their I.T. Staff, and totally moved their dialers and pbx’s to run on much more modern technology, saving them a significant amount of money every month. Lastly, I designed the network for the current building, and once I finished that I went back to my normal life and left CES in memories.
Fast forward about 9 years:
I had left my previous job, and CES was having a lot of technical issues, so Pat and Bev had me hunted down. I decided I would help for a few months as a contractor and then do something else, but I soon realized that it would take a long time to get everything running smooth again, and the longer I worked here the more I realized how different this group was from every other place I had worked. Very quickly I found myself Happy to go to work, Glad to see my work Family every day. I have worked at some amazing places in my life, but the people you work with are what makes or breaks it for me, and my fellow staff really care for each other and go out of their way to help, just like family!”
