Meet Alvin Lawrence, Parts Runner and Warehouse Associate
Get to know Alvin Lawrence, one of the Barineau team members dedicated to helping customers with installations and ensuring that the warehouse operates efficiently. Alvin has lived in Tallahassee since he was a teenager and began working for Barineau in March.
Owner Patrick Barineau says that Alvin is a “nice guy and puts his heart and soul into the Barineau brand.” Beyond that, Alvin diligently runs the warehouse, manages deliveries, takes inventory and creates meaningful relationships with Barineau clients.
Alvin always “lets the customer know they are the priority,” and he enjoys making people happy with his services. During the installations, he informs customers about what he is doing and why he is doing it, which Alvin believes is important to help people understand the complexities of their cooling systems.
When asked about his favorite part of working at Barineau, Alvin immediately lists his coworkers. It makes sense that this father of four, the oldest of whom is in her first year at Tallahassee Community College, enjoys the “family atmosphere” at Barineau.
A Seminole to the core, Alvin also loves supporting Florida sports teams while spending time with his family and trying new foods. As someone who genuinely enjoys helping customers through stressful situations, he feels lucky that he wakes up excited to go to work every day. But, as Alvin wisely says, “It’s not work when you like what you are doing.”
