Field Survey Crew
A graduate of the University of Toledo with a degree in Business Administration, Collin Perchinske has been part of the Field Survey Crew for McSteen for about two years. Prior to joining McSteen, Collin worked for an engineering and surveying firm with Ryan Snezek, who is now the Director of Surveying for McSteen.
Collin says it was the opportunity to learn and grow professionally that drew him to join the McSteen team, along with its family atmosphere. He says, “my ability to be coachable along with my willingness to do whatever it takes to get a project done,” is what helps him succeed in his role with McSteen, as does being a team player and a hard worker.
Our employees are our greatest asset at McSteen. They are what set us apart from the competition – and they are pretty cool, too. Meet Collin Perchinske…
What makes McSteen different from others in the industry?
McSteen is different than others in the industry with its culture and helping others reach their fullest potential. Giving everyone the opportunity to succeed or the resources they need.
What have you found to be the greatest differences between working in surveying and utility locating?
The greatest difference between surveying and utility locating is with utility locating you actually get to trace out the utility lines. Sometimes with surveying in the field, you have to play a guessing game and refer back to records in the office. Utility locating takes the guessing out of things.
What is your favorite thing about working for McSteen?
The family atmosphere.
What are you reading/watching?
I’m currently trying to get through Beyond Good vs Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche.
Tell us about your family.
I am a single father to my five-year-old son Lucca.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I spend being a father (i.e., playing with hot wheel cars) or trying to get to the gym. Or trying to get through surveying school.
