The common thread for both families is what drew them to Athens—the potential to build a long-lasting and successful career.
“My uncle told me ‘If you want a good job, come here to Athens and they’ll give you the opportunity to grow,’” said Raudel.
This has reigned true as Raudel first started as a Helper in 2022 and has already been promoted to a Scout Driver.
In addition to limitless growth opportunities, Athens also emphasizes and encourages a collaborative learning environment.
“The family atmosphere is evident throughout the whole company,” said Alex. “Everyone is approachable and you’re able to ask questions without hesitation.”
Both the Hernandez and Barrera families reside in Lawndale and in the future envision a new generation of their family joining them at Athens.
“My son loves trash trucks,” said Luis. “Every time he sees an Athens truck he says, ‘that’s my dad!’”
