The new hires will be responsible for commu- nicating with customers about their orders, reviewing orders and ensuring that fraudulent activity isn't slipping through the cracks, and following up with customers after trade shows. Ruebke is no stranger to Heat Transfer Warehouse. Previously, he worked part-time in the warehouse while attending school for business administration. He explains, "After I graduated college, I moved to a full-time position elsewhere, but then I heard that (Heat Transfer Warehouse) had a full-time position available, so I came back." When asked why he chose to return to the company after five months away, Ruebke responds, "I liked the culture the business had and the people I had worked with." In agreement, Warren says what drew her to the company was its "relaxed" atmo- sphere. "(There were) dogs running around and everyone talking while they are working and music playing," she says of her first impression. "I was told that this place finds it important to keep stress down and production up." She adds, "When you are happy at work, it doesn't feel like work."
