A few years after college, I joined Advantus as a Marketing Coordinator. After participating in the Advantus Professional Development Program, I was exposed and gained hands-on knowledge in a variety of other areas of the business. This allowed me to advance quickly into a Business Manager, then Marketing Manager and eventually into my current role as a Senior Process Manager.
Working at Advantus has been such a learning experience for me. I started as an Accounting Coordinator, and quickly was promoted to an A/P Specialist. A little bit over a year later, I was promoted to A/P Supervisor where my leadership skills have improved tremendously. Advantus has given me the opportunity to grow in my career and I am excited to continue my journey in learning and exploring my full potential with the company.
I’ve been with Seward Trunk for 13 years. I started out as a shipping clerk and progressed to shipping coordinator. Since Advantus took over, there have been many changes and improvements. I’ve since been given the opportunity for advancing into different areas of the company and I’m now in charge of inventory control and oversee many aspects of the production process at the Petersburg plant. The company and the people I work with have created an environment that makes it feel like being part of a big family. Truly a rewarding job.
I enjoy working for a company that is willing to make changes and updates that actually make their employees work life better and more efficient. I also appreciate working with others who don’t care about their job title but just jump in and help where ever and whenever help is needed.
I’ve always enjoyed working in a challenging and fast-paced environment, which is why I love being in the Product & Sourcing department. I learn something new on a daily basis, and while some days can be stressful, everyone is always willing to collaborate together. Our values-based culture of acting with integrity especially makes me proud to be part of the Advantus team.
One thing I really love about Advantus is the team that we have built, and the people I get to work with. We all have great strengths and bring something new to the table every day. Over the last year, I have been able to learn so much about the company and myself in the team that we have created. With also having a smaller team, I have been able to learn about each part of the business from each of my co-workers and I think that really adds to our overall communication as a department.
Advantus is a remarkable company that not only cares about its customers, but cares just as much about its employees. I have been afforded the opportunity to use my experience as a trainer while stretching into other roles and learning new skill sets. I honestly feel management is invested in my future, cares about my goals and has provided the resources I need to be successful here. I love that Advantus is a fast-paced, ever evolving company- I never feel stagnant.
What I like about Advantus is that it allows the opportunity for aspiring individuals to grow and move up in the company at a comfortable pace. I started off as a picker and moved up to Shipping Operations Manager within a few years.
Advantus has given me the opportunity to learn a variety of new skills and learn about the many different aspects of running a company. Coming from working in large corporations, working for Advantus has been a breath of fresh air. There is a sense of teamwork and community as you get the chance to work with people from all over the company to reach a common goal. There are new challenges and opportunities seemingly every day and Advantus allows you the chance to take ownership and grow your career in new directions.
