Olson made deliveries and worked in the lumber yard loading materials for customers.
After driving for several years, he moved inside to front counter sales and then worked his way into his current position in the contractor sales department.
Olson has seen many changes over the years and became an employee owner when Hartnagel transitioned to an employee stock ownership company in 2004.
Then in 2008, Olson helped move the store into a larger facility at its current location at 3111 E. U.S. Highway 101.
“Over the years, it's been a constant learning experience with new products on the market almost every month,” Olson said.
