Intern to Employee: Nick's Story

Hi there! My name is Nick Knutson, and I started as an intern here at EnviroTech Services roughly nine months ago. For ESI I have had the pleasure of working with Amber, Peter, Veronica, Tonja, Robert, Mary, and fellow intern Jacob. My position has consisted of various marketing/sales activities, as well as the addition of supply chain work, but I’ll get to all that good stuff later. I am originally from a small town in Minnesota, about an hour south of the Twin Cities. Growing up in Minnesota I love all things outdoors, especially being on the water! Fishing, boating, tubing, and jet skiing are some of my favorite activities on the lake. I was also involved in many different sports as a kid, but wrestling was the sport that I became the most passionate about.

Intern to Employee: Veronica's Story

My name is Veronica Lopez, and I would like to share a little about myself and how I went from a high school intern to long-term committed employee at EnviroTech Services, Inc. I was a junior in high school at Greeley West when I was enrolled in an ACE class that focused on business and gave students tools to enter the working world. I was hand chosen by my teacher, Jeff Cranson, to respond to an opportunity from a company to do a part-time internship. This was great news to me because it meant I would also earn a credit towards graduation for being employed while completing this ACE class. I was a very quiet and shy 16-year-old (I know for some of you who really know me it’s hard to believe now) walking into a corporate building with no experience of the business world whatsoever, but I was willing to give it a shot. I had a brief meeting with Carrie Plasters who was the sales assistant at the time and on September 19, 2005, I was employed by EnviroTech Services, Inc. for what was supposed to be a semester long internship that would later turn into my future career. I was an intern for the entire office and completed many different tasks that anyone had for me including filing Accounts Payable files and credit files. I continued to take on small projects and looked for any opportunity to learn something new and before I knew it, I was even being trained to do minimal tasks in the customer management IFS system.

PM 2.5 vs PM 10: Particle Air Pollution

Why does air pollution get worse during the winter time? You may remember from school scientific experiments, that cold air sinks and warm air rises. Cold air is more dense and moves more slowly than warm air. Sinking cold air can create an atmospheric cap over the earth’s surface, while warm air passes over the top. This cap prevents pollution from dissipating, and creates unhealthy conditions for anyone within it.
