Meet Absolute Roofing: Michele Ruff
Meet Absolute Roofing
Over the next several weeks we will be doing a series profiling the different team members at Absolute Roofing. You’ll get to know us a little bit better and see us as so much more than roofing contractors.
What is your role?
What do you do at Absolute Roofing?
I handle all new roofing inspections, schedule warranty work, and all the paperwork that happens behind the scenes. Initially, I wasn’t answering calls but when they realized how extremely patient I was then I started handling all incoming calls.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
I love how flexible and family-oriented this company is. For instance, when my son is sick it’s OK to take time to be with him. The owners of the company are always within reach and accessible if I ever need anything.
This one thing blew me away. The first time I brought my own Dr. Pepper from home (and didn’t drink it), I came back to work on Monday and it was still there. Nobody steals food here without first asking 😉
How did you get involved with Absolute Roofing?
I was previously working as an office manager for a construction company for 8 years. When it came time to look for a new job, I was specifically hunting for other contractor jobs because that’s where I had experience. I saw an online post for an “Office Manager” position at a Roofing Company in Omaha so I reached out right away.
I applied for the job and heard back shortly to set up an interview. Paul, Keith, and Traci met me for the interview and it went really well. They called me two days later and offered me the job. I started about a week later and I’ve been here ever since June 2016.
Tell us about your family:
I’ve been married to my husband Ryan for 11 years and we have an 8-year-old son named Liam. We also have a 2 1/2 year old Golden Retriever named Leo.
What is your favorite food?
I would have to say Pasta and Mexican.
What is your favorite Movie or TV Show?
What is your favorite place that you’ve been to and why?
A beach. Any beach as long as it’s warm.
What’s something about Absolute Roofing that most people don’t know?
We regularly pray before team meetings.
