There are many people who find work miserable or too straining on themselves. The construction industry is a field where many of it’s workers are always stressed out physically and mentally. But there are those who seem to always be positive even when it’s a stressful time. A perfect edition to episode 2 is having Curry Mapes on the podcast series, who is the lead Superintendent on the job.
For many who don’t know superintendents are always on the job site watching the building progress. This means they have to constantly make a new schedule all the time, which is very time consuming and hard. Another difficult task is to be at the job when the subcontractors are pouring concrete. This means Curry is at the job site at 1am and won’t leave till late in the afternoon. Curry mapes is 28-years-old Texas A&M alumni who has been in the industry for years. He currently works for Manhattan Construction. I’m going to be diving into this mental health to see how’s he doing which such a crazy workload.
Being the second interviewed, Curry and I will be discussing:
- Stress that comes with being a Superintendent?
- Does he love bouncing around job-to-job never having a permanent “home”?
- How is he doing so well mentally?
- What has been his favorite jobs he has worked on?
- What are his end goals in the industry?
Life as a construction worker is very stressful for many individuals. Not having a lot of sleep is a main factor for many workers. But Curry always seems to be in high spirits. I’m very excited to interview Curry to see what he does to help his mental health be so great.
My personal experience so far in this industry will be apart of the podcast series. I worked all summer long and currently am working my senior year of my last semester in college. I haven’t been in the industry long and I can see my mental health depleting so far. Getting advice from someone who has been in the industry since college will be very fun to learn from.
Join into this episode as Curry and I dive into blueprints.
