Some of the training has had to be hands-on, but the Estradas have a strong dedication to safety as their highest priority. New hires receive a period of job shadowing with the most experienced crew members.

The Estradas have chosen to avoid bringing in any salespeople. “We rely on our reputation, repeat business from current customers, and word of mouth,” Mr. Estrada mentioned during our interview. They joined the 1-800-Sweeper organization in 2019, from which they receive leads. “Being a part of this organization has allowed us to meet some fantastic members, very knowledgeable people that encourage and help each other grow as a leader of their own team,” Estrada mentions. The company has expanded service offerings and market areas as well, which has helped. They continue to grow and learn, and recently became a NAPSA certified sweeping company. The 2018 acquisition of American Sweeping & Maintenance Group, a company they’d worked with for over 16 years, allowed the Estradas to bring their philosophy of integrity, honesty, and dependability to both businesses, with a strong dedication to always be fair to our customers, team, and vendors. continued on page 28

The largest challenge faced by the Estradas is finding the right people to hire: people who are self-motivated, self-driving, and responsible. Relying on the people in the field, due to the amount of time spent in the trucks, is vital to the company’s overall success. “We now screen new candidates to gain a better understanding of how they can be a good fit for our continued on page 26
