​" I value working with our customers and helping them find solutions throughout their supply chain, living in our customers' world.       

Why Smurfit Kappa?

I wanted to be part of a global organization that still has so much potential for growth and expansion. Even though our global footprint is large, America is still a challenge that awaits. Knowing that Smurfit Kappa’s plan is to keep growing, I saw great opportunities and wanted to contribute to that growth.

A day in a life of a Graduate Trainee ...

  • Indulge in some bagels or donut holes with our sales and customer service team. We need something to get us moving in the mornings.
  • Follow up with customers through phone and email.
  • Work on quotes (artwork, drawings, specs, etc.).
  • If on a Tuesday, we would enjoy some tacos at Sandbar, our local taco Tuesday spot.
  • Check on running orders with production and scheduling, making sure that tomorrow's orders will be ready to ship on time.
  • Get organized to head out and visit customers.
  • Drive to visit customers and check on our quality of delivered boxes. It is always nice to go stop by and review your customers order with them.
  • Visit new or prospective customers and getting down their information to begin new quotes.
  • Head back to the office to organize days’ work and prepare things for tomorrow...
