But what’s it like to really work for Church & Dwight? How does it feel to roll your sleeves up and be right at the heart of the action, in the thick of things, making our company tick?
Over a number of interviews with key players in our businesses, we hope to give you a little insight into what they do, where they operate and why they enjoy coming to work every day. Each of them add tremendous value to Church & Dwight.
We spoke to Scot D., who works in our Speciality Products Division. If anyone knows the C&D business inside and out, it’s Scot, as he has been an asset of our company for an amazing 33 years.
Scot’s division is responsible for the bagging and shipping of materials to our customers.
Scot is in charge of making sure that around 2600 pounds of product is distributed on time and to the correct destination. It requires a real attention to detail and skill with logistics to make sure all our customers get exactly what they need, exactly when they need it.
Seeing growth happen
Scot has worked for Church & Dwight for three decades, so it’s only fair to assume that he has seen a lot of changes in that time. The most obvious change to Scot was the growth of the company,
“When I started out, we had a couple of plants here and there, and then over the years it’s just grown and grown, we’ve gone global!”
We asked Scot what he would miss if he left the team at C&D after all that time. His reply was short and sweet and came as no surprise.
Another positive thing that Scot had to say about the company was the loyalty they have shown him as one of their longest serving employees.
“I’ve always had a job, through thick and thin. There was a period of my life when I was ill and had to have some treatment every day. The company took care of me and together we made sure I was able to continue to work as well as deal with my condition.”
We are one big team at C&D, across all levels, and we value every single member of that team and offer them all the support they need, ensuring that their time with us, from one year to 33 years, is a happy one.
Teamwork and development
After 33 years of service, we asked Scot what he has learned about himself.
“I can work well with others; I’m willing to let people learn by themselves but I’m also happy to offer advice if anyone asks for it.”
Scot went on to tell us that, even though he’s worked for such a long time he still doesn’t know everything.
“You can always learn more, computers, electronics, things from other people. I’ve realized that sometimes I have to step back and think, ‘Ok yeah, let me learn from them.”
With over three decades of service, it was refreshing to hear that Scot still has an appetite to keep learning and developing. We do all we can to make sure all our team members are supported at every stage of their career.
