Matthew Amick

Construction Laborer/Hardscaper-Landscaper/Equipment Operator Outsanding All Around


Marysville, WA 98271


I am an extremely hard worker with old fashioned values. Everywhere I've been, I am considered one of the hardest workers in the company, or THE hardest worker in the company . Sometimes I produce at an unbelievable level, to the point of exhaustion. But that's how I was taught to work for someone, to earn my pay. I am a team player. I seek a company that is stable and can provide a future for my beloved wife and me, our daughters are grown but one, If given an opportunity I will be thankful and perform my duties above and beyond expectations, with honesty and humility, always putting the crew or team first . Thank you
