“It was a breath of fresh air. From the moment I got to work until the moment I left, just the atmosphere and the environment. It was a fast paced day and it was demanding because I didn’t know much about it, but the people were good.”
"My best classroom has been in the plant: hands-on experience, learning with the people on the production line, getting to know the machinery and our products—it’s been the best learning opportunity I’ve had."
“I was able to find an opportunity, I was given a challenge by my upper management to pursue it and see what kind of success I could achieve. Ten years later we’ve been able to come up with a whole new division that serviced a market that we’ve never touched previously and it’s turned into over $40 million in Sales nationwide every year.”
“Really the culture is what it comes down to. You feel at home, you want to be a part of the team and bring as much to the table as you can. It’s refreshing to wake up and want to come to work every day because of the people you work with and the work you accomplish.”

“It’s extremely important to have an environment that challenges you to do better than you think you can and have the people around you to support you and help you grow and to tell you when you’ve done a good job, that’s extremely important and I think Universal offers that to all of its employees every day.”
