  • Not all relationships work and this job may not be right for you. There are times when it is best for you and for Wick to part ways.
  • We make every effort to keep you "home" and working on jobs that do not require overnight travel. However, there will be times that will require you travel with the crew away from home and spend nights in hotels (in state and out of state).
