Employee Anniversary Spotlight: Andrew Chael

 

At Morgan Hunter, we’re lucky to have so many tenured recruiters. As our employees celebrate their Morgan Hunter anniversaries, we thought you’d like to get to know them a little better! Today Andrew Chael, Senior Recruiter in our Accounting & Finance Division, is celebrating 3 years with Morgan Hunter.

 

When and how did you start working at Morgan Hunter?

I was in the market for a new job around three years ago when I came to Morgan Hunter to talk about different openings. I felt this firm (relative to the competitors) was much more in tune with what was going on in the market and I decided I’d give the recruiting thing a try.

 

Favorite sports team?

KU basketball (and football part-time), Chiefs, Royals, and whatever team LeBron James plays for.

 

Favorite Movie?

I’m not a huge movie person, but one that I saw in the past few years that really sticks out is “The Big Short.”

 

Favorite TV Show?

Recently I’ve been watching a lot of “Silicon Valley.” I’m a big fan of HBO in general, specifically “The Wire,” “The Sopranos,” and “Entourage.” Just like everyone else, I became a full-on “Breaking Bad” addict a few years ago as well.

 

Favorite Food?

Mexican. I’m a big fan of going out, drinking margaritas and eating Mexican food! I like any place on the Boulevard — Ponak’s, Margaritas, or El Patron.

 

Best place to eat in Kansas City?

Favorite thing to do outside of work?

I love to travel. I just got back from a fun trip to the Dominican Republic last week. I also love to play golf, watch sports, and exercise.

 

What’s your best advice to candidates?

The best advice I would give a candidate is to know what you’re really good at, know the things that you do better than your peers that you’re competing with for employment, and figure out an environment that will allow you to shine with that advantage.

 

What’s your favorite thing about working at Morgan Hunter?

It’s cliché, but I really enjoy the company of the people that I work with. I love the flexibility and the fact that there’s not a bunch of corporate red tape.
