Tanner Rauter, Employee of the Fall 2016 Quarter

Tanner Rauter, Service Technician, was chosen as the Fall 2016 employee of the quarter.

Mike McMillin, Service Manager, said Tanner has become a valuable asset to the “fire” team after only two years with Atronic.

“Tanner just recently completed the grueling ESA National Training School FAIM exam,” McMillin said. “Out of 15 people, he was one of three who passed. He will now be preparing for his NICET certification.”

Each quarter, employees at the company vote for the person they feel goes beyond the call of duty in hard work and dedication towards customers and each other. This fall, employees nominated 18 people from the company. Tanner pulled out the most votes.

Alysia Bianco, Office Supervisor, tallies the votes and sends out an email congratulating the winner. Below are just a few comments fellow team members had to say about Tanner:

“He came to the company with little experience in this field and in two years has become a dependable, knowledgeable fire alarm technician. His value to the service department grows daily, mainly because he is willing and capable of taking on about any task put before him.”

“He is always willing to go above and beyond when it comes to getting the customers taken care of. If you call and ask him to go check something he will do it with no questions asked. He works weekends correcting fire issues without being asked to do it. He has learned the Potter 7706 panels and has figured out some issues that we got changed in programming.”

“Goes about and does his job and you don’t have to ask him twice.”
