Career Paths at Universal Forest Products

Build your Career

You Can Learn.

At the companies of Universal, learning isn’t just something we want you to do; it’s part of the job description and our overall culture. Learning is woven into everyday tasks and opportunities, into leadership and mentoring, and into our expectations.

At UFP, you’ll learn, all right. About our industry and markets. About how to be the best at your job. About what it takes to be the envy of your peers and how to grow your success in ways you hadn’t considered. And about how hard work and fun can go hand-in-hand.

Pick your path—whether it’s agricultural products or building materials, sales or plant management—and start learning. If other paths interest you along the way, or if you want to take a look at other companies in our family, explore them. Because success at Universal can take on many different forms. Just ask Ben, who started his Universal career in finance and now is having great success in operations.

“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.“
