Penn State grads play critical roles in maintaining the exciting, energetic, and productive work environment here at WebstaurantStore. Many Penn State grads hold prominent leadership positions that provide the drive, direction, and results that contribute to our rapid growth. In addition to all their hard work, they also have a lot of fun working at WebstaurantStore! Check out some of the bios below to meet a few of our Penn State grads!
I began working at WebstaurantStore in 2010, shortly after graduating from Penn State. I had fine-tuned my critical thinking and communication skills while achieving an English degree and was excited to apply what I'd learned in a rapidly growing company. All of those years ago, three other Content Writers and I were tasked with researching information so we could write descriptions and buying guides for things like doilies, toasters, and slushy machines while also formulating ideas to enhance the website's overall customer experience.
Now five years later, WebstaurantStore has gone from a budding up-and-comer to a full-fledged foodservice industry giant. Despite such tremendous growth with that group of four Content Writers growing to a team of more than twenty, the learning, writing, and innovative generation and implementation of ideas continues. What was once almost entirely independent research, learning now means weekly hands-on training and occasional conferences throughout the nation. The style of our writing continues to stay fresh and evolve as we gain a better understanding of our audience. With an appreciation for opportunity, open communication, natural curiosity, and an ambitious-but-relaxed work atmosphere, I look forward to coming to work each and every day!
After graduating from Penn State in 2013, I joined WebstaurantStore team as a Customer Solutions Specialist. Penn State emulated togetherness and team building, which WebstaurantStore demonstrates each and every day. As part of the Customer Solutions team, we help customers place orders on the site, and educate them on our products. As we all know, Customer Service can be tedious at times but with the support of a great team – you can't go wrong!
Here at WebstaurantStore we are constantly learning about the products we sell and growing our careers. Trainings are offered almost every Thursday from different manufacturers we carry on the site. We usually receive a catered lunch on training days as well. Additionally, there are many positions to grow into, and if you have an idea of where you want to go, team leaders are always ready to listen.
Professionally, the most important thing to me is continual growth and knowledge so that I never become stagnant in my career. Over the past four years at WebstaurantStore, I've never come close to reaching any sort of professional plateau. This is because I work with a team of managers and professionals who provide the type of challenges and resources necessary to improve my programming and professional skills.
During my time here, I have recognized many parallels to my experience at Penn State–particularly in regard to team spirit and camaraderie. Just as I believe the great culture at Penn State is a direct byproduct of an excellent university, I believe the fantastic environment at WebstaurantStore stems from this being such an incredible place to work.
If we listed every reason, we'd run out of pixels. Here's just a few to tempt you.
