Focused and hard working environment.
Warehouse Assistant (Former Employee), Athens, ALMarch 30, 2015
Pros: Expanded my knowledge of several business principals.
Cons: Short breaks.
A typical day at work first includes making sure that your work area is clean and well organized. To begin each shift, we had start up meetings to address any product issues and to discuss daily/weekly objectives. During the shift, I had to focus on the task at hand to ensure that each product was efficiently and effectively assessed. Mainly, I learned the value of hard work. Over three summer breaks in college, I held three different job titles. Truck loader, assembly line worker, and warehouse assistant. During my first job as a truck loader, I learned quite a bit about logistics. This experience was easily the most labor intensive because the truck's trailers reached temperatures of up to 110 degrees in the summer months. As an assembly line worker, I gained knowledge of understanding exactly how a product is ordered, created, and packaged. My most previous job as a warehouse assistant gave me a great understanding of how to process inventory. Throughout three summers, I worked with many different people. Most co-workers were eager to help me first understand my job responsibilities, and assist me whenever possible. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with co-workers. Each summer, I made great relationships with the people I worked with every day. The relationships I've built over the past summers will not soon be forgotten. I still consider many of my co-workers to be my friends.

A typical day at work is like trying to overcome all obstacles that are thrown at you on a daily basis. I have to run different machinery and keep up with the daily work loads.

Best job ever
shipping (Former Employee), Wyoming, MIMarch 9, 2015
Pros: pay, benefits, people
Cons: not working there anymore
I enjoyed all my time at Steelcase. I was always busy and could pick up addition hours as I wanted. The people were friendly and willing to teach me different jobs.
If you had an issue with a job, someone was always there to help correct it. Whether it was a machine issue, quality issue or whatever. You could depend on someone to address the issue.
I really miss working there

An interesting postion with a large fast growing business.
Industrial Painter/ Cabneits Builder (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIMarch 4, 2015
A day at work was to run the line with fast and easy pace. I learned to listen to others and learn from them. I listened to my management team and did as I was shown. I worked very well with all my co-workers. The hardest part of my job was learning all about the hoppers in the paint shop. The people I worked with...

Interesting Secondary Research- Great Place!
Design Research Intern (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 2, 2014
I was tasked with researching how properties of nature might be beneficial int he workplace. Mostly through secondary research, with some observations as well, I on a team of 3 created a framework with associated design principles. I enjoyed finding learnings from academics who live and breath the subject though was also challenged to make insights based off of the technical approach.

Great Workplace
Product Data Analyst (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIAugust 25, 2014
Steelcase is great place to work. Everyone I have worked with has been very helpful when needed. I've learned a lot about business process, from raw steel to the finished product. My typical day at work includes working with the design team to help complete orders. I would receive a delta bill form a designer and check the structure of the material needed. If new parts were needed I would create them following the manufacturing engineers build information. Once parts were built I would load them into the bill of material in SAP. After checking to make sure all the correct parts and passing though with the correct finishes I would send the order out to be scheduled. Other duties included creating purchased parts and researching and fixing data issues that disturbed the plant.

A typical day
Hilo Driver (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIJuly 23, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: health care
I learn many new things at Steelcase. Pretty soon there supervisor knew that when I got on my hilo the areas would be all taken care of with little or no direction. I knew exactly what to do, on a day to day basis. My management team was wonderful. The co workers were always there with a willing hand in case I needed some help. I guess the hardest part of the day would be when a hilo driver wouldn't show up and we had to cover for him/her. The most enjoyable part of the job would be leaving for home, knowing full well I left the areas fully stocked so the upcoming shift would have an easy transition to their start of the shift.

Wonderful Opportunity
STRATEGIC ACCOUNT MANAGER (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 7, 2014
This was a competition that we entered without many expectations. We knew that we had a strong team but we did not expect to finish number one out of all of the teams. This was a great chance to meet with executive level leaders and work on presentation skills.

Work hard and fast no time for family because they will not let you leave
Trimmer (Former Employee), Caledonia, MIJune 28, 2014
Cons: could not get time off for doctors visits or appointments and would work past 6 in the evening.
Come in to work and put office furniture together. Got two to three breaks depending on hours. Had a non paid lunch and a normal 8 hour day was with two more braks if we worked more than 10 we got another break. Was told at the last minute that it was time to go. Never knew when the day would end. Management sucked because of the fact that they would not work with people because they did not want to get anybody else to do the job. They did not make people do things or help out. The work was not bad but the speed and the heat was horrible and there was only one shift so work had to go out no matter what. The people that worked there was the only enjoyable part.
