Associate Testimonials

  • Working at L. E. Smith has allowed me to grow professionally in many ways. Over the years I’ve learned how to be a better manager, team member and technician and the future promises to allow me even more opportunities to hone my skills. But, my fondest memory was from my first six months with the company. Completely unbeknownst to me, our HR and Accounting staff reached out to my wife to plan a surprise baby shower. I was so taken aback by this small gesture that that I knew I was part of a family, rather than just another employee.

    Scott Buehler
