Corrugated Career Development Opportunities
At Rusken our unique family atmosphere is accompanied with a deep drive for success, creating an encouraging and engaging culture. We are committed to investing in our employees who share our core values and have a desire to grow. And we couldn’t be more proud to be entrenched in such a dynamic industry for almost 50 years, serving our customers with custom packaging solutions. Our tag line says it all – our passion is making your first impression!
In support of our commitment to the corrugated industry, over the past several years, we have established the Rusken Career Development Program (RCDP) to allow young professionals the opportunity to gain valuable industry and leadership experience as well as take on a wide array of projects to become a true contributing factor for the Rusken team. Through eight functional rotations, candidates receive expansive exposure and experiences during the two-year program. Upon successful completion of the program, our goal is to find a good fit for the candidate in an expanded role to continue to grow with Rusken.
In fact, of the seven individuals who have completed the RCDP program, all seven were offered and went on to accept an expanded role in our organization, contributing in many ways to our growth and success across the Rusken footprint. That’s a 100% completion rate! The continued roles for these seven individuals include sales, quality, production, marketing, among others. We are seeking highly motivated candidates in the next RCDP class to continue this positive momentum and grow to become future leaders at Rusken Packaging, Inc.
Zach Ivey, who began the Rusken Career Development Program in 2019, finishing in June 2021, and went on to become a Sales Professional for Rusken, had this to say about his experience, “The RCDP provided me with invaluable experience and opportunity that I couldn’t have gotten elsewhere. This program has allowed me to grow both professionally and personally in ways that have prepared me for my current role with Rusken. The product and industry knowledge gained, and relationships built through this experience have allowed me to establish greater partnerships with my customers”
As Rusken continues to grow, so does our investment in our people. Dedicated to both our employee and customer success, we understand long term relationships hinge on trust, camaraderie, and teamwork. It is our people, Team Rusken, that truly makes a difference.
