When I was last looking for a job, I was drawn to Simpson Strong-Tie because I was seeking career growth, and my last company didn’t have room for advancement. I found an HR admin position for Simpson Strong-Tie listed on LinkedIn, and after some research on Indeed, I saw great reviews about the company’s culture, treatment of employees, and the experiences of employees. I knew I had to apply.
Although I did not have any HR experience, I decided to take a chance and apply for the role. Fortunately, Simpson Strong-Tie took a chance on me and hired me. Throughout my five years here, I have come to understand what people meant by the company’s great culture — I found a company founded on genuine, people-centered values, which foster a supportive work environment where employees feel valued, respected, and encouraged to learn and grow. I have built amazing relationships with my colleagues and leaders, which make me feel like I’m part of a family rather than just a team.
One of the main reasons why I love my job so much, whether it’s been as an HR Admin, an HR Coordinator, or now an Executive Assistant, is because I have the opportunity to support people in the company. It’s fulfilling to know that I play a small but respected role in contributing to the success of the company.
An aspect that has made my time at Simpson Strong-Tie fulfilling is the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse group of individuals.
