Everyone at Smead has his or her own reason for working here. Some people like the idea of working for an industry leader and feeling like their contributions matter. Others enjoy the opportunity to work for a private company with family values. Still others just like helping to make the world a more organized place.
Whatever their reasons, it is not uncommon for people to enjoy long careers at Smead Manufacturing. Ten, twenty and even thirty years is not uncommon. In fact one employee who retired in 2007 spent 65 years at the company! The tenure of our staff, more than anything else, is a testament to the strength of our culture and the opportunities we provide for our employees.
