When Homer Auge talks about millennials on the job site, he’s speaking about his peers.
The 34-year-old roofing project manager at Corporate Contractors Inc. (CCI) of Beloit is counted among the early members of the millennial generation, who now make up the largest generation in the workforce.
Auge began his career with CCI in 2006 and started an apprenticeship in 2008. He worked his way up to lead man, foreman and then superintendent before becoming a project manager.
“Now I’m in charge of the whole (roofing) division, making sure we’re making money and everybody’s efficient, everybody’s staying up on their training and bringing in new people and trying to retain them,” Auge said.
