Picking Representative (Former Employee) – Thief River Falls, MN – May 8, 2015
Processing orders for customers. I picked 45 orders per hour. If there was any problem with damaged parts my supervisor was always available to contact the correct department to get more parts for that order. I had fun with my co-workers and would help them if needed. The best part of the day was knowing I put together correct orders for the customers.
Once a month they would put out fruit and cake for 1500 employees.
Not knowing what holidays were going to be on my schedule
Supervisor, Order Fulfillment (Former Employee) – Thief River Falls, MN – November 20, 2014
The work was not very labor intensive but you did a lot of walking. I learned that big companies can still have a small company feel. The workers here were a great bunch of people. Management here was always willing to listen to you and help you out.
Product Manager Semiconductor Group (Current Employee) – Thief River Falls, MN – September 13, 2014
A Product Manger at Digi-Key is basically the liaison between suppliers and Digi-Key. Our job is to build and foster interrelationships with Digi-Key's suppliers, ensure the right parts are stocked, and answer customer concerns on occasion.
Digi-Key has taught me a great deal about the electronic component industry. From the perspective of a distributor, I understand how to put the customer first in all decisions. I've learned how to interact with several different departments both internal and external and I've learned integrity in business.
Your co-workers are also your friends. They talk about Minnesota nice, well, it's alive and well within Digi-Key!
The hardest part of the job is knowing that you most likely won't make upper management. No one has been promoted to upper management in many years. All have come from external.
Conversely, the most enjoyable part of the job is the variety and safety. No layoffs ever and always something new to do and conquer!

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Thief River Falls, MN – June 4, 2012
There is no typical day at Digi-Key corporation. The functions are all consistent, but no two calls were alike. I learned patience and that the customer is always right. I strove to deliver 100% customer satisfaction on each and every call. My co-workers were fantastic as well as my managers. It was a close knit team of people who relied on eachother's experiences when someone had a dilemma they couldn't figure out. I really enjoyed that aspect of the job. The teamwork is phenomenal.
