Sign Installer Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Sign Installer in San Francisco:
"It's Not About You."
Do whatever it takes to complete your installation. Don't sacrifice the quality of an install because the best method is something you don't like to do. You are paid to install signs in the right place, level, secure, etc. It's not about you, but if you choose easy over best and there are problems, then it is about you. When there are complaints it's not pleasant when your employer and customer realize there was a better way to do the install but you chose easier for you. No news is good news. A sign that falls down, is crooked or scratched is a sin. If you know there is a problem, just because your contact doesn't notice it and they think it's great, somebody will.
