NORTH JACKSON, Ohio (WKBN) – Hundreds of positions are available for Things Remembered, a company that makes personalized gifts for customers around the world.
Things Remembered in North Jackson inserts itself into their customers’ special moments, filling 25,000 orders a week and adding a special touch with personalization.
Leading up to Christmas, the company fills over half a million orders.
Diane McCarty says when someone opens a box from Things Remembered, there are stories inside.
“When that gift is opened, it’s all about the customer’s reaction and how the giver feels in giving that gift. So it’s important that the quality of the product and the personalization is the best that it can be.”
Things Remembered has hundreds of open positions for engravers and embroidery equipment operators. It has 147 machines to engrave plates, jewelry and glass. Seventy softline machines embroider things like scarves, robes and children’s items.
Workers take information from a work order, double-check their work and line up the machine.
“We’re looking for people who have good attention to detail, are accurate and, obviously, dependable and reliable because no one wants their gift after Christmas, right?”
The work isn’t hot or difficult, but requires a level of thinking. The workers can be artists, in a way, to commemorate a moment in someone else’s life.
McCarty says it’s simple to get started.
“We do require a high school diploma or a GED. College is not a requirement.”
Things Remembered also has plenty of room for advancement right inside the building.
“It really gives you an opportunity to learn Things Remembered, and for us to get to know you and to understand what you want your career path to be,” McCarty said. “You can progress into a leadership role. We have so many opportunities in this building to fill and we always look internally to promote.”
