“I’ve been in this industry for over 5 years. I started in the production department, and now, a few promotions later, I’m an important member of the Quality Department. My time in this industry has taught me that a lot of the myths like “They’re not high paying”, or “they’re filthy jobs”, are super untrue. They do, in fact pay well and offer great benefits. Now is the perfect time to take advantage of these opportunities.”

— Sam DiGregorio, Lead Inspector
