By Wendy Hintz, Sales, Customer Service & Retail Specialist

Growing up I always dreamed of owning a corner deli and welcoming my regulars in and taking care of them like family. As a customer walking into a small store you can often tell intuitively who the owner is. It’s not about their age or what they’re wearing, it’s the way they radiate attentiveness to employees, processes, details and of course to their customers; it’s their uncanny peripheral vision and hearing for everything that’s going on around them. PRIER Products may have started off as a small company, but we are growing fast and when a business grows it isn’t smart to just have one or two people with an owner’s mindset. You want to spread a sense of ownership to as many employees as possible.

Readers are Leaders

By Cindy Coats, Controller

My mother used to always say, “Readers are Leaders!”  I generally heard this phrase right after one of us did not read the instructions for something before we dived into assembling, or using it for the first time.

A Simple,Yet Successful, Ad Program

By Pat Hogan, Regional Sales Manager

One of the most successful advertising programs that PRIER has had for the past two years was developed and implemented by two manufacturer’s representatives located in Utah.  The two men merely answered a question that had been asked by multiple wholesalers, engineers and contractors throughout the years.

When Opportunity Knocks, Let It In!

By LaTausha Taborn, Manufacturing Assistant

When I first started at PRIER 7 years ago, I had no idea that I would be where I am today. In 2007, I was looking for employment, submitting application after application with no luck. My financial situation was becoming more and more stressful and I was not sure what I was going to do. I did know, however, that I could not stop searching and applying.

Becoming All You Are Meant To Be

By Ieshia Mayes, Accounts Payable Specialist

One of PRIER’s objectives cited in our Mission Statement is “to help all partners become all they are meant to be, both inside and outside of PRIER.” This is exemplified through PRIER’s tuition reimbursement program, PRIER’s volunteer opportunities and health coverage benefits to name a few. The most important thing I have learned is that you only get one chance at life, one chance to “become all you are meant to be,” so give it your best shot!

App Review: Countdown+

By Chris Travers with Hart, Travers and Associates

On a recent road-trip with my sixteen year-old to her Grandmother’s house, she told me that 45 days and 6 hours remained until we would leave on vacation. Soon thereafter, she mentioned to me that it would be 63 days until our exchange student arrived to stay and only 43 days and eight hours until my niece (her cousin) would be married.
