For the first time ever the Polar Express arrived in Middleton, WI and with it a seasonal job for Recording & Music Technology student Sedrick Hibbler. While the pay wasn’t awesome (somewhere slightly above minimum wage) the atmosphere was something you won’t experience anywhere else. While not a typical audio engineering position Sedrick said he couldn’t turn down the opportunity to live the holiday spirit for an entire shift at a job he has come to love!
“At the Polar Express I’m only operating an iPod and an amplifier, but I have learned so much because I am always searching for the extra tidbits of knowledge that can assist my career.” Many times Sedrick has been called on to help “save the day” when something has gone wrong with the audio system or even just anything on the train (like missing dancing waiters – yup, you read that right!). His commitment to team excellence and flawless customer service has earned him the spot as the Head Engineer for the train in 2015 – way to go Sedrick! You know where to find your team of competent, energetic and fun engineers next year – right here at MMI! We’ll be waiting for your call! [More…]
