Greetings to the Locke Team! I am Gregory Murray. I started with the company in February of 2017 as an S/O at the Park Laureate post. In April, having learned of an open position for a Scheduler, I applied and was selected for the job. Despite 35 years in the Military, the last 25 as an Operations Sergeant to a company, scheduling for Security Officers started out as what seemed to be an insurmountable challenge. Fortunately, with the help of the entire office staff, the Field Supervisors, and some very understanding Security Officers, I survived the shock.The job is still a challenge, presenting new scenarios and obstacles daily, but knowing I have a family of supporters to help, from Mr. Lakenmacher himself, down to the newest hire,I look forward to each new day on the job.
