The company is a 5th generation family owned company, and a leader in its industry. Schumacher's products have a long history, one that is intertwined with the history of our country. The people at F. Schumacher & Co. are wonderful, positive and work hard. Due to the fact that Schumacher is a fifth generation family owned company, the workplace environment is very warm, there is a strong work ethic as well as a commitment to upholding strong values.
Opportunity for promotion is a bit low at the moment. In December the company hired a new CEO, and management is currently restructuring the company. I anticipate that this will change in the coming months.
Advice to Management
There is a tremendous opportunity for the company to capitalize on its rich history, and truly set itself apart from the company's competitors. Through the expansion of social media outlets, and creative advertisement and collateral materials I believe that Schumacher can gain a competitive edge.
The process took 1 day. I interviewed at F. Schumacher (Chicago, IL) in September 2010.
I had a wonderful experience meeting management at F Schumacher regarding interviewing for the showroom intern position. It was a great conversation - perfectly suited for the environment and position. I learned about the company, the showroom, and the role of the intern within the showroom.
