Dan Caska - insulation technician

You need your brain, but it's also physical work. I can't imagine sitting behind a desk all day! The combination of working with my hands and my head is ideal."

The story of Dan

How did you end up at Bilfinger?

"I am originally from the United States, New Jersey to be exact. I moved to the Netherlands about 2.5 years ago. In the US I also worked as an insulation engineer and knew that here in the Netherlands there were many opportunities to continue working in the same field. So when I came here I started looking for insulation companies. I sent my resume to several companies, including Bilfinger. They responded almost immediately, which already felt good. In addition, during the interviews, I thought Bilfinger came across as an open company where I felt welcome. And it also appealed to me that Bilfinger is a big company with a lot of work and therefore many opportunities."

What do you like about your job?

"I like being outside all day. And I work with a lot of different colleagues from different cultures. In addition, the work is interesting. You need your brain, but it's also physical work. I can't imagine sitting behind a desk all day! The combination of working with my hands and my head is ideal."

What does the team look like?

"The basic team here remains pretty much the same with the foreman, foreman, project manager, etc. We also work with insulation engineers from subcontractors and they change. But I also regularly work on my own. So I come into contact with a lot of different colleagues-and I like that. It keeps it interesting to have a lot of variety; sometimes I work alone, sometimes I'm with the base team and then again with subcontractor colleagues."

How important is teamwork to you?

"Very important! It's important for everything in life, it seems to me. But when you work with heavy equipment, for example, you have to be able to rely on each other and work together. And I like everyone I work with, which is nice."

How would you describe Bilfinger's culture?

"The most important thing is; safety first. That's the main priority. And the culture is very open. As an 'outsider,' I feel like I'm really part of the team and I'm looked out for. I was immediately accepted by everyone. I think that's a really good culture for a workplace. And you get a lot of days off here, especially compared to the U.S., I really appreciate that too!"

What does your future at Bilfinger look like?

"One day I would like to have a managerial role, such as foreman. For that, I first need to improve my language skills and make sure I speak Dutch (this interview was conducted in English and translated), so that's my current goal. Hopefully, once I have done that, I will be able to advance quickly. I want to do different trainings and education to achieve that. Like measurement training or leadership training. That is also definitely possible at Bilfinger. I think it's important that I can develop broadly and be well educated."

Why are you proud to work at Bilfinger?

"The insulation work itself makes me proud. Once you have it fitted it stays in place again for over 20 years, so it has to be of high quality and continue to work well. When it all looks nice and correct, I'm really proud of my work; I love the craftsmanship."

Why should people come to work at Bilfinger?

"Bilfinger is a stable company with plenty of work, now and in the future. In addition, you are treated well and you earn a good salary!"
