TULSA, Okla. — Unemployment in Oklahoma decreases each week, but about 80,000 people are still without a job.
2 Works for You is highlighting a company that started small 42 years ago doing siding and windows. Now, as demand grew due to the coronavirus pandemic, business is booming.
Burnett Home Improvement said they used to make a few hundred thousand dollars a year, but hit company records this summer. Last month, they made nearly $700,000. They said the increase is because people are at home, restless, with no places to vacation.
So they've seen people spending extra funds on remodeling their home.
Vice President Shawn Donahue has been with the company for almost two years and wants to encourage people to apply. Their faith-based company prides itself on treatment and fairness.
Burnett Home Improvement employee Vasilik Napelenok said, “Most of the people are Christian here, so I think that’s really what matters to me. I know these people are not going to lie, they are going to be honest... that’s one of the best things about working here.”
Donahue's main job is to make sure the company's crew members stay happy because they wouldn't have the business or reputation they have today without them.
“If anybody is willing to learn, we are always willing to give them a shot. We always want to do our best by people, we want to give everyone the opportunity to succeed, whether that be here, or somewhere else," Donahue said.
Donahue said anybody looking for work should apply.
