Haworth, furniture manufacturer headquartered in Holland, Michigan, will be at Allegan and Ottawa Service Centers this week because they’re hiring! We sat down with one of their recruiters, Valerie Reimus to hear more about the company and open positions.
Thanks for joining us today! Can you introduce yourself?
I am Valerie Reimus and I am a recruiter at Haworth.
How would you describe Haworth to a five-year-old?
I would probably show them pictures of the inside and outside of our office. And would tell them that we make things; we manufacturer things inside a building like tables and chairs or different office spaces and office rooms that are comfortable and enjoyable for people in an office to be in.
Why is Haworth different?
Haworth is family owned. We’re entering our 70th year which is an exciting time to join the Haworth team. We are committed to West Michigan and keeping manufacturing and our jobs in West Michigan. We have a really diverse culture.
We’re focused on our members. Everyone at Haworth is called a member no matter what your job title is. We focus on our values. We want every member to live out our values while on the job, interacting with our customers and interacting with one another while working.
What does success look like in an employee?
As a team member, success would look like the ability to learn a variety of jobs in a variety of work areas. And, developing consistent attendance and work quality. You have the opportunity to learn every day and master new things. You get to see opportunities to advance and move into different roles.
What do you wish everyone knew before they applied for a job?
We want people to know its’ important to establish consistent and attendance history. We provide a lot of open opportunities in other areas.
We’re family owned; our members and culture are very important to us. So, we want to make sure we’re finding the best candidate fit for all our opportunities. We want to bring people in who can learn and grow with us and be part of our wonderful family.
