Employee Spotlight: MJ Salazar

With all the uncertainty in the world right now, reliable and skilled employees are more crucial than ever in keeping operations moving smoothly, and MJ Salazar is no exception. As DCS’s Facilities and Safety Coordinator, MJ is responsible for ensuring employees are following safety protocols while maintaining a clean, safe workspace for all employees and visitors. Regardless of who he interacts with, he has earned a reputation as one of the company’s most thoughtful and compassionate employees.

“It has been my great pleasure to work with MJ over the years and to watch him grow as a person and a leader,” said Jan Thevenet, Human Resource Manager at DCS. “His outgoing personality, willingness to help others and the incredible job he has done to keep us all safe in these challenging times continues to show both his strong commitment and value to the DCS family.”

MJ is a Dallas-Fort Worth native and attended high school with a few other DCS employees, forming friendships before crossing paths again as coworkers. Prior friendship or not, MJ treats everyone he meets with equal respect and kindness.

When he’s away from work, you can find MJ working out and spending time with his family – his wife of 20 years, Diana, as well as his son, Manuel, and daughters, Maddison and Gabriella. “I’ve worked for large companies that make you feel like just a number, but working at DCS you feel like family,” MJ said. “I couldn’t ask for a better team to work with and can honestly say I love my job.”
