Shawn Salmon has been working at Jamaica Inn for seven years in the Maintenance Department. His dedication, consistency, efficiency and passion for his field led to him being named Employee of the Quarter for fourth quarter 2013.
Having a talent for electrical work, Shawn knew from a young age what he wanted to do for a living. When he finished school he worked on installations of electrical items and found that it came natural to him, knowing just what to do.
Shawn’s day-to-day repertoire includes checking electrical components in all areas of the hotel to ensure everything is safe and in working order along with inspecting the main water heaters. Shawn is also on-call for any emergencies that may arise after his regular shift.
Handling stressful situations is easy for Shawn, as he has a very good sense of humor which he uses to balance everything out. This positive demeanor is another reason Shawn earned recognition as Employee of the Quarter.
When asked where he sees himself in five years, Shawn replied that he would love to be a Chief Engineering Officer in a hotel.
Congratulations, Shawn, and thank you for your continuous dedication and hard work at Jamaica Inn!
