Describe your favorite thing about working at Constellation.
Constellation Brands supports and encourages employees to volunteer for charities and organizations. This shows that the company has a vested interest in the community, and that they care enough to give back in a variety of ways to those who live in the community. This means a lot to me, as I have been a volunteer firefighter for the past 10 years and have been involved in the Scott Firefighter Stair Climb for the last five years.

What is most rewarding about working for Constellation?
Constellation Brands supports its employees giving back to their communities. For me, that means taking time off work in order to volunteer. Each year, I put on all of my firefighting equipment and climb up the 69 flights of the Seattle Columbia Tower. It’s all part of the annual Scott Firefighter Stair Climb to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

Being able to participate in the Firefighter Stair Climb has given me a way to also give back and make an impact on a larger scale. Seeing all of the 1,900 firefighters who participate in the stair climb is truly inspiring, and I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of that community as well.

Since Constellation Brands supports my volunteering, it means that my company is also helping my community – and I find that immensely rewarding.
