OSC FRIDAY FEATURE
Scott, the Visor-Wearing Shipper & Assembler
When Scott first arrived to Office Sign Company, he said “I’m just going to be another guy here.” Within just a short period of time, though, he became the guy here, serving as an irreplaceable fixture in both our Shipping & Assembly departments. One of the few individuals I know who wears visors for reasons other than to block sunlight, we already love the guy for what he’s done to boost the culture at our production facility with his welcoming personality and tremendous sense of humor. Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that he was the victor in our company-wide “Rock Paper Scissors Tournament” at our last staff meeting. Here’s a little bit more about Scott..
- Position at OSC: Shipping Guy
- Tell us a little bit more about what this entails?: First rule of shipping is we don’t talk about shipping.
- Where did you go to college? If you graduated, what is your degree in?: I have a degree in Philosophy from MSU (back when it was still Moorhead State University).
- Where did you start your career?: I began working life at the tender age of 13 at Enderlin Hardware Hank.
- How long have you been with OSC?: Four months.
- Favorite thing about your job at OSC?: The people are fantastic. I have never worked with a more positive group of people.
- Favorite OSC tradition, event or work perk?: Maybe less of a tradition, and more of a cultural thing, but I’m amazed by everyone greeting each other with a “Good Morning” every day. Also, the recognition of anniversaries and birthdays, etc. Just the day-to-day pleasantries.
- Favorite thing about Fargo / Moorhead?: Big city conveniences with a small town vibe.
- When I’m not at OSC you can find me… You can’t find me. Please don’t come looking.
- Favorite place to travel to?: Heather (my wife) and I went to Iceland earlier this year. That was cool.
- Favorite restaurant in town?: I’m liking Deaner’s in West Fargo lately. Comfort food.
- Favorite sports team?: I’m not really a sports guy.
- What advice would you give to younger people trying to get into your profession?: Not necessarily professional advice, but life advice. Don’t just work hard, work towards a goal. Figure out what you want, and plot a course to get there.
We’re lucky to have a guy like Scott on board who brings both a lot of knowledge and fun to the workplace. With Scott being our final Friday Feature (for now), please tune back in a few weeks when our next new employee starts working at OSC and gets a Feature written about them! Thanks for reading along.
