Jessica Alexander - Director, Talent Acquisition

“Being that the majority of my professional, adult career was spent in the armed forces, I was quite concerned about how well I would get along in a ‘corporate setting.’

I was pleased to find that the morale and comradery within Cascade was very similar to that of the units I had been assigned throughout my Air Force career.

Cascade is a company in which I feel at home, an organization that truly values the diverse experiences of its employees—especially veteran employees. Not only does Cascade make every effort to recruit veterans, but they’ve hired a female veteran—myself—to coordinate these efforts. The company makes a true effort to find ways in which veterans’ transferable skills can be practically applied in our bread-and-butter positions throughout various departments.”

John McAssey - Technical Expert

After five years in the United States Marine Corps, I began my career in the environmental industry as a Field Technician. After 25 years, I am now a Vice President, and can confidently say my career at Cascade has been as rewarding and fulfilling as my military service.


My involvement in my unit’s HAZMAT program in Okinawa exposed me to OSHA training and sparked my initial interest in the environmental field.


I gained skills during my time in the service that benefited my career in environmental drilling.


At the time that I joined Vironex (which was acquired by Cascade in 2015), the company was made up of about 90% veterans.  This culture reinforced the same values and beliefs that were instilled in me in the Marine Corps.


The most rewarding aspect of my career at Cascade has been the ability to lead my team and grow a company with a solid foundation. Clients rely on me, and my superiors trust me to do the job right. That level of trust and freedom provides me with a sense of ownership over my work and my career, and I find that truly valuable.

Christopher Koski - Driller Assistant

I could not be happier with my choice of career.

The people I work with every day are top notch and have always made me feel like a part of the team.

The training our crews receive is amazing, and has really prepared me for the challenges that come along with drilling.

In the Navy, I learned a lot about working with machinery and I became very familiar with heavy equipment. Naturally, the type of work that Cascade does fits in well with what I learned in the service. I’ve enjoyed the traveling and am always impressed by how well the company takes care of us while we’re on the road. Cascade’s focus on safety and training are a huge perk for me, and I think a career in environmental drilling would be rewarding for any of my veteran brothers and sisters.

Jason Williams - Drilling Assistant

Cascade is a really good career choice for separating veterans because the crews we work with in the field are very tight knit, similar to the bond you share with other service members in the military.


The military prepared me for my career at Cascade by providing me with discipline, structure and motivation.


Veterans are well prepared to handle stressful situations, and we’re accustomed to working with diverse groups of people and pulling together as a team to accomplish our goals. In essence, that is what we do at Cascade – we work together and learn from one another to get the job done efficiently and safely.


I’m proud of my career, both in the military and at Cascade, and I’m proud to be part of such an amazing team that takes the time to teach me new skills in environmental drilling.  I’m very excited to be a part of the Cascade team and look forward to a long and successful career.

Travis Strover, Driller Assistant

I served in the United States Army Reserves for 8 years, specializing as a Diesel Mechanic. During my time in the military, I was able to visit 19 different countries!  When I joined the Army Reserves, I wanted to be a tanker. I was young and impressionable, and it looked fun in the recruiting videos. At the end of the day, a Diesel Mechanic offered more money and that swayed my decision. Several years later, I was sent to school to learn how to be a Crane Operator. This allowed me to deploy to Kuwait in 2006, and then again to Afghanistan in 2009.

I found myself at Cascade after a frustrating career in the oil field industry. I had been laid off my job despite being a high performer. I was frustrated and took a position as a fabricator in an underground coal mine repair shop. I knew this wasn’t my ideal career, so when I received a phone call from Cascade for a telephone interview, I pulled over immediately and took the call.

After a year at Cascade, what I like the most is the freedom I am given to do my job. The military was a very strict environment, but at Cascade I am trusted to do the job right without micromanagement. I also really like that I am learning from one of the best Drillers in the industry, and I am optimistic that I will progress into the Driller role. In the military, I learned how to be comfortable around equipment – whether it was forklifts, palletized load systems, hydraulics, auxiliary power units – and having that knowledge and familiarity with different equipment has contributed to my success at Cascade. I believe that anyone transitioning from the military to the civilian world should consider this industry as a career, particularly Cascade.
