He says one day he got lost and he ended up in front of Aria s & Associates staffin8 services. He applied for a job and got his job with Western Precast that same day.

His humble beginning was nothing short of easy since he had nothing when he first moved to El Paso. Rick tells me he had to walk from his apartment to work for the first few months and his family back in Fort Worth were worried he would not make it. He says he loves Western Precast because they treat their employees like family and has been able to move up by working hard and having a positive attitude. After only one year in production, he got his position as shipping manger. He has a total of 5 children, 2 which live in California.

When Rick isn’t at work he enjoys spending time with his family.
