I love working at D Thompson Contracting. There's always something to do - you meet a lot of people and are at a different place every couple of days. Daryl is so easy to work for - if he gives you a job and you do it right, he's happy. Everyone loves working here - people keep coming back year after year. I love Southland - the people are so friendly and it's beautiful. Just like Ireland, only better.

I've been working for Daryl almost five years and really like the work I do. Daryl is easy to get on with and just lets me do my job. Daryl and his family make you feel welcome and it's easy to fit in. Southland is a beautiful place and everything is so close. There's no traffic and you can get anywhere pretty quickly.
