Michael Oakes, Owner
First Choice Electrical Solutions, Alliance
Michael Oakes, owner of First Choice Electrical Solutions, really cares about his employees. Mike works to keep great people on board with us and takes their needs into account. If someone needs time off, he’s very understanding that people have unexpected things come up. The team feels like a family and everyone cares for one another. We have group activities such as March Madness brackets, team meetings, holiday get-togethers, lunch outings and more. I think that all of the activities Mike plans for our company sets our workplace apart.
