OPPORTUNITY FOR GROWTH
Stratosphere Quality provides the opportunity for team members to grow and step forward on their career path. Team members enjoy rewarding and meaningful work that has a significant impact on people’s lives, by ensuring products are tested and approved for quality before hitting the market. Hear from some of our employees who have enjoyed their careers at Stratosphere Quality.
I started out as a DQI in 2013 through a temporary agency in Anderson, IN. I had just graduated with an associate’s degree in the medical field and was looking for a steady income in my designated field. I went to Marysville, OH with about 200 other DQIs from around Indiana, ultimately getting my hours in and becoming a full-time SQ inspector.
I was then promoted to a Team Lead position and ultimately the Project Supervisor position in Central Indiana. It happened within a couple of years, and then 5 years ago I became a Project Manager. My reason for staying with Stratosphere Quality is the passion to make things better. Our jobs matter – when I hire people, I always tell them that my wish for them is to know that they make a difference in people’s lives. Not many realize the full impact that we have on society.
The passion statement still holds true today: when we consciously influence one person, we unconsciously influence ten others.
I started with Stratosphere Quality as a temporary associate in September of 2012 and was hired as a full-time associate in December of that year.
Since then, I have worked my way up within the company. I am now a Project Supervisor with over 50 people that I supervise.
I enjoy that every day is a new opportunity to learn and grow.
I started at SQ as a temporary associate in 2016 in Indiana. I was eventually hired full-time almost a year later in May of 2017. I worked hard and even traveled for the company. My leadership put me in charge of projects as a Quality Inspector because they trusted me. They had an unbelievable amount of confidence in me and my abilities to do the job.
In January of 2019, there were three of us up for the Team Lead position. I had all the leadership backing me and they wanted me to get the promotion. With this opportunity, I proved to be what everybody else saw in me. It gave me the chance to show what I was capable of.
Within four months, I was put in for a promotion to Project Supervisor. Now, I’m one of the main leaders co-running the Exit Five warehouse. Along with being a Project Supervisor, I assist in shipping and receiving, scheduling, and other duties.
It has been an amazing seven years with Stratosphere Quality.
I started as a DQI in December of 2012 and was hired full time 3 months later. I was then promoted to Team Leader and then Project Supervisor, all within 5 months. I am currently training as a Quality Technician.
If you are willing to work hard and follow processes, there is always opportunity to move up and grow within the organization.
The work is rewarding and a different challenge every day.
I began working for Stratosphere Quality in October 2017. I interviewed in January of 2018 for the Team Lead position with two other Inspectors who had more experience than I did.
In June of 2018, I was promoted to Team Lead. I was able to be trained by great Supervisors and Team Leads. I learned there is never a stupid question. The faith that my team had in me when I got the position was a big help with getting where I am. I was able to run multiple projects from one location, and I did a good job of being in multiple places at once.
It was November of 2019 when I was promoted to Project Supervisor. When I got the call about a three-shift project, I was informed this may be my opportunity for this promotion. I worked so many hours on this project to make sure that it ran smoothly. This project and the help and training from the right people gave me the confidence to be the Project Supervisor I am today.
I started at Stratosphere Quality as a temporary employee in October 2020. I was hired full time on March 01, 2021 as a Quality Inspector. About 5 months in, my Supervisor started giving me more tasks to do. In August, I received an opportunity to advance to Team Leader. I started more in-depth training with work instructions, PPR, 2-minute 360, and rosters. By December, I officially became a Team Leader.
I like the variation of projects that come through the gate. There are always new challenges resulting in new opportunities to learn. If you’re willing to do the work, there is always room to advance at SQ.
Always keep communication open with your Supervisors about your willingness to learn and advance. They are great at working with you and helping you along the way. They understand there is a lot to learn and are very patient with training and answering questions.
I am currently working towards becoming a Project Supervisor and I am looking forward to learning more.
