As a new addition to the Signarama Troy family, I’ve had the exciting opportunity to dive into the intricacies of the sign business.

The experience was not only insightful but also crucial to my training process. Having no prior experience in the sign industry, witnessing the installation team in action was nothing short of fascinating. Ryan and Steve, the dynamic duo, showcased their expertise, tackling projects with precision and overcoming daily challenges seamlessly.

One aspect that caught my attention was the behind-the-scenes coordination involved in their work. Before any installation takes place, planning and measurement are essential. Ryan and Steve stressed the significance of correct measurements during site surveys. I learned the correct techniques, including tips for angling the tape measure to hit the right seams for cabinets and windows. These seemingly small details can make a significant impact on the overall success of a sign installation.

Moreover, I gained insights into the art of communication when dealing with customers. Ryan and Steve emphasized the importance of paying attention to detail when discussing customers’ preferences and ensuring feasibility. Understanding the customer’s vision and aligning it with the technical aspects of sign installation is a delicate balance that the installation team has mastered.

During the surveys, I absorbed key features to look for on buildings, enhancing my ability to contribute effectively to the team. The installers generously shared tips and questions to ask business owners, enabling me to provide them with the best sign solution tailored to their specific needs.

Witnessing the installers in action was like watching magicians on-site. Their problem-solving skills came to the forefront as they addressed unexpected challenges swiftly and efficiently. The speed at which they finalized the installation was truly impressive, leaving our customers genuinely wowed by their gorgeous sign.

The Auburn Ash installation experience reinforced the importance of teamwork, attention to detail, and effective communication in the sign industry. As a newcomer, this hands-on experience has given me a newfound appreciation for the dedication and skill required to deliver top-notch sign solutions. I look forward to applying these lessons in my role as an outside sales rep and contributing to the success of Signarama Troy. Stay tuned for more adventures in the world of signs and installations!
