We’re fortunate to be in an area that’s experience a great economic boom. Living is good, jobs are plenty, and the unemployment rate is under 4%. This is excellent news! For businesses, one of the biggest challenges being faced, regardless of industry, is a workforce shortage. Here at Renewal by Andersen, we’ve been lucky enough to see growth for the past several years. We’re now looking to hire new talent to help support and sustain our growth.
We know that there is a lot more to a good job than the pay and benefits. We’re looking for people who enjoy coming to work, who want to improve themselves and their life, and to really be a part of our company, not just another face in the crowd. We’re very proud of the place we work and the company culture we’ve helped to create.We could tell you all about the job descriptions, benefits, and company values associated with working for our company, but as everyone here knows, what makes our company different than every other place looking for their next superstar employee is the awesome team we’ve already got. We asked the employees here to share a little bit about what they do and what makes Packerland Home Improvement a great place to work.

6. What’s your favorite memory of working here?
Amanda- Scheduling Coordinator: how welcoming everyone is also WAG [an inside joke in the Marketing department]
Kate- Event Marketing Manager: I have been with PHI for 3 years now and my favorite memory is right after I started. I started working for PHI one week before my birthday and that year was a special year to me because I was adopting a Cat on my birthday. They got me a card with a Cat on the cover and got everyone in the office to sign it. I didn’t even know everyone yet who had signed my card, but they signed anyways welcoming me to the team. I left then came back to PHI as a full time employee, that card has been in a frame on my desk since the day I got it. It just shows how much we take in new people as part of the ‘work family’ here at PHI.
Cody- General Manger: My first sale, I’ll never forget it. I was as nervous as I could be but stuck with it and was able to help deliver just what they wanted.

When I came back to PHI full time, I took the position of Event Marketing Manager. I have done everything with events from the bottom up.

Another part of my job is networking and building partnerships within our community and the area we serve.
