For those of you who are unaware, QuicKutz as a company has recently moved its corporate offices in Orem to the upstairs of our warehouse in Lindon, UT. Being in a new space has its adjustments and has certainly mixed up the dynamics of our workplace—it’s all an episode of The Office basically. Most of these changes, in my opinion, have been for the better.
Being all together in one building seems to have united us, not only literally, but the proximity has brought about changes in our friendships as well. For instance, the sales guys have finally opened up their “lunch clique” to those of other departments, there’s been an emergence of several random inter-company competitions (more on those to come), we’ve started having guitar jam sessions at lunch, many of my co-workers have added me on Facebook and best of all, I feel like I finally know everyone’s name in the company. I have to mention that, although many of us have grown closer, the Customer Service and Accounting departments are very much left out of our bonding. They have been “exiled” together in a separate section on the main floor. However, they are a resourceful and entertaining bunch and from what I hear from the girls in accounting, there’s rarely a dull moment down there. For the record, we really miss them all.
So anyway, here are some pictures of our new building: (Sales Rep Kris is in a lot of these pictures because I originally took them for an account of his)
Our Shipping Area
Extra Pinatas from the Fiesta Gift Set. One of these was brought up to our office with a note on it saying "Throw me to relieve aggression". After several throws, Karate chops and drop kicks, I'm sorry to report that it's no longer with us. (p.s. these pinatas don't have dies in them if you're hoping to get a Fiesta font)
Our head designer, Amy, working in her crop room. She's great.
Shipping QK off to the world
Look, a hidden Mickey! I found this in our warehouse and I have no idea who put this there or when but I was pleased.
I don't really know why George is here, but I'm thinking he'd be great for my shoe-throwing target practice.
I bet you don't have goats directly behind your place of work. I think they belong to some school district and, I'm sorry to say, are the occassional victims of (harmless) taunting.
Well, that's us. I admit that I left a lot of pictures out but I thought these were perhaps the most interesting. If there are demands to see more of our building, I may just concede. If anyone has any interesting stories about their work or if you have any questions about what it's like to work for QK, please comment!
