While interviewing for the position of Project Coordinator with AlphaGraphics I was told that everyone who was hired started off in the bindery to learn exactly what is we do here at AlphaGraphics. I thought this was a great idea and when I was offered the position I was excited to get started.
Thinking I would spend my first day watching some people operate the machines in the back for a few hours and then spend the rest of my time at my desk, I wore my usual work attire complete with three-inch heels. Big mistake. When they tell you you’ll be learning what exactly they do at AlphaGraphics, they mean it.
I quickly found myself operating the cutter, binding cookbooks, slitting business cards and a myriad of other tasks that kept me busy and on my feet. By the end of the day I was barefoot, but I loved every minute of it. Never before have I felt so completely immersed and part of a business after the first day.
Now, nearly four weeks later, I’d consider myself a “pro” in the bindery. I’m excited to take the knowledge I’ve gained during my time cutting, punching, binding and shrink-wrapping (all in flats now) and help our clients get more out of their experience with AlphaGraphics than they ever thought possible.
