A Day in the Life...

Ryan Mateyk, Talent Acquisition Coordinator
Recently graduated from University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Science and from Niagara College with a postgraduate degree in HR
Joined Samuel in September 2018

My name is Ryan Mateyk and I have been working as a Talent Acquisition Coordinator at Samuel for about 8 months. On any given day, I can be found:

  • Reaching out to candidates about scheduling interviews
  • Posting our job openings on various job boards
  • Coordinating pre-employment background checks for new hires
    However, as I have searched out additional opportunities to learn and grow, my role has continued to expand. I have:
  • Learned about the different regulations required to hire in Canada vs. the US
  • Implemented new video interview software, a growing trend in recruitment
  • Become one of the leads in our applicant-tracking software implementation
  • Learned about reporting and metrics

This expanded role is just one example of what I love about working here – my manager has placed a lot of trust in me, allowing me to take on a leadership role and work on new projects.

I also love that Samuel is a family-run business. Metal may not be the most glamourous industry, but Samuel more than makes up for that in the way they treat their employees. As a young professional just starting my career I was pleased to discover that Samuel is full of supportive people who want to help you succeed. There are many opportunities to grow and advance at Samuel and this incredible team will help you make the most of them.

Spencer Young, Stainless Steel and Carbon Purchasing Assistant
Graduated from a Logistics & Supply Chain Management Post-Grad program at Fanshawe College in January 2018; also holds a Business diploma from Fanshawe and a BA from Brock University
Joined Samuel in August 2018

My name is Spencer Young and I am a Purchasing Assistant for the Stainless Steel and Carbon departments at Samuel. One of the things I like most about my job is that I have a clear set of tasks I’m responsible for completing on a daily/weekly basis. However, what is required to complete those tasks is always changing. Whether I’m quoting aluminum extrusions or a job that needs to be processed, what I do on a daily basis is rarely the same.

I also love that my role allows me to help people. If a sales rep comes to me with an order-related issue I find it very rewarding to be able to work with them to find a solution to their problem.

Despite Samuel’s size and scope, we manage to be a very close-knit group. All the departments work together and share resources to make sure everybody hits their goals/targets. The management style is very warm and welcoming, and my training was very thorough. Everyone encourages you to ask questions if you’re unsure about something, and no one gets upset if you do something wrong. Instead, they show you how to fix it and avoid the same mistake in the future.

Whether it’s in the same department, or at a different branch or office, there is vast room for growth and advancement at Samuel. I’ve been with the company for less than a year, but I can see myself developing my career at Samuel and staying here for a very long time.
