It’s finally school break and Hanukkah! As most kids do, they can’t wait for this time of year to get here. Some of you may not know why the holiday starts on a different day every year. It is because the Jewish calendar is a Lunar calendar with 13 months.
We asked our employees what they were grateful for this Thanksgiving.
Here are their responses:
"For everything: health, job, family, and good mental state."
-Chris Washington, CA Warehouse Manager
"I'm thankful for each and everyday I wake up bless us all."
- Darren Barr, CA Warehouse Personnel
Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15. We celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The reason for those dates is because most Latin American countries won their Independence during this time.
Football season is almost here! Here at Quickscrews, we are big football fans. Our weekly office Pick ‘Em Pool has become an annual tradition. It is free to play for our employees and each week the winner receives $25, and of course the grand winner receives even more. Last year, our Purchasing Manager Mitch beat out Warehouse Manager Chris by 1 point for the season total. Many Quickscrews members also play fantasy football. Our CEO Greg Wiener recently discovered fantasy football and won his league last year-- while his son, VP Marketing Jared, came in last place in the same league.
I started the company in July of 1987 at the ripe old age of 29. Hardly did I know then what type of company we would have 30 years later. I can tell you one thing for sure: Quickscrews has great employees. We have spent a great deal of time and energy building the right team so we can create a great company. We are working towards that goal each and every day.
After much thought, I would like to inform all of you wonderful Quickscrews customers and supporters that I will leaving my family business, to move to Antarctica to study the March of the Penguins. Just kidding, I’m not going anywhere-- I love this business and can’t stand the cold. April Fool’s!
