Tyler Casey has been with HydroVac since 2019 — he’s our field operations manager, charged with making the team run smoothly and efficiently, among other things.
We asked Tyler to share a typical day, so others can get a better idea of what it’s like to work for HydroVac. Interested in being a part of our team? APPLY NOW
0600 – 0630
Coffee stop on the way to work – my first coffee of the day is always a highlight and very much needed!
Arrive at the office and prepare myself for the day ahead, packing what I need. Gloves and gumboots are a must! There’s always time for a quick chat with other team members.
0700 – 0900
Off on the road for the first job of the day. Today that is a grease converter clean at a restaurant in Ponsonby. So satisfying to see the difference between the start and end result!
1000 – 1030
Head to site for hydro excavation. Wait for traffic management to set up site, catching up with others from the team while we wait.
1030 – 1300
Set up hosing, and make a hole – 1.8m x .6m wide for a replacement powerpole.
1300 – 1400
Dispose of the waste from the hole and clean truck for the day.
1400 – 1600
A residential client calls in an overflowing gully trap. I head there with a small combi truck with flushing capabilities. We clear the blockage with a whip hose and clean up. An intrusion of roots was the cause.
1600 – 1700
Disposal again and clean down.
1700 – 1730
It’s Friday so to celebrate the end of a good week, a sit down and catch-up with the other operators is on the cards. The people we work with are one of the best bits of working at HydroVac.
Tyler started in a casual role at HydroVac and worked his way up. When he can, he also likes to get on the tools, because he enjoys being in the outdoors and working alongside others in the HydroVac team.
