My name is Stephanie Tuba and I work in both the Out for Processing department and the Accounts Payable department at Samuel. I am currently finishing up my last few classes at the University of Michigan – Dearborn, and will be graduating with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Accounting. There are many reasons that I love my job – my management team and co-workers are friendly and supportive and working at Samuel offers so many opportunities for growth. I am very glad to have found a company that supports my education and allows me to use my accounting background. I enjoy being in such a diverse and interesting industry and look forward to growing my career here.
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.
