Mainstream Living

Bill Kearney

What brought you to Mainstream Living?

I had a friend (Shawn) way back in the late 80s who repeatedly told me I should work for Mainstream. "You have the right kind of personality for the job" was how she put it. I didn't apply until four years later, long after she was gone but thankfully Barb (HR) remembered her and thought highly of her. I was hired almost on the spot.  Shawn was right. The job seems to suit me.

What is your favorite thing about work?  

The members.  I find this to be very satisfying in a way that other jobs, like pumping gas, can't compare.  When I first started, the flexible hours and working 24 hr shifts really fit my need to have weekends free for rocking and rolling.   Now, that I work M-F "9 to 5" style, it's still pretty satisfying.  

How do you spend your time outside of work?

I spend my time tending chickens, playing music, running, playing music, camping, playing music, baking bread, planning for vacation that includes running, camping and playing music.  I occasionally play disc golf, fold origami and knit and at the moment am obsessed with building a teardrop camper.

What is something employees may not know about you?

I regularly play fiddle for barn dances two or three times a month.
