At present, 9 employees have observed their 20-25-year career anniversary, 13 others have logged 15-20 years, and 6 people have 10-14 years of Apollo work experience. That's a mind-blowing 492 years of Apollo experience just with these 28 employees!

How is that possible? Known for hiring the right people for the job, co-owner and HR Manager, Keersten Nichols, shares that she searches for individuals who excel in life personally and professionally and enjoy their work. "It is very important to me to fit people to jobs that match how they like to work."

Apollo employees are encouraged to grow in their roles, taking on new responsibilities and developing new and better ways to do their jobs. Likewise, Apollo fosters a team mentality. Everyone works together for the common interest, and cross-training is encouraged.
