At Horizon Group USA, You’ll Love Coming to Work Every Day (Just Ask These Employees!)
Dating back to 1912, Horizon Group USA has a long history of developing creative products for people of all ages. From trim and ribbon to today’s array of arts and crafts supplies, Horizon makes it easy for children and adults alike to stretch their imaginations and have fun—from painting your own birdhouse to molding your own stepping stones.
Ensuring that employees have room to grow and succeed is a top priority at Horizon Group USA. Employees report feeling confident that if they continue to push themselves and do great work they will be rewarded for it—and maybe even sooner than they think. And being part of a team that values growing your career makes going to work every day easy.
“Everyone makes you feel really welcome and comfortable here. No question is stupid, and you can go to anyone on the team for help,” says Meghan Dillon, Sales Manager.
Horizon Group USA is proud of all the opportunities it offers its employees. Paid summer internships are a staff favorite, especially for Meghan, who started as an intern herself and recruited her younger brother into the program as well. In fact, employees are encouraged to recommend candidates—and are rewarded with a bonus if they bring someone on who’s a good fit.
But staff at Horizon Group USA always find time to take a break and spend time together, from going out to lunch to getting an afternoon run in to grabbing a drink after work. Co-workers also look forward to breaks during the workday, like the Welcome Weekend Wagon that comes out every Friday with beer and wine to celebrate the end of another successful week.
“I love our office. You can walk by and people will be in the zone, but we also take breaks and check in with each other to see how we can help,” says Kelsey Flynn, Senior Designer.
