RECEIVER, Pultrusion Division
Crittenden joined Milgard as a pultrusion line operator in 2016 and was excited to learn that Milgard offered an education assistance program that covered up to $5,250 per year worth of college expenses. She took classes online, adjusting her coursework around her work schedule, and completed an associate’s degree as well as a degree in accounting.
“By working while completing my degree, I was better positioned to take new knowledge and start applying it from day one,” said Crittenden. “I was bringing my experiences to group discussions and assignments. Being able to apply the information and tools I was learning in the business program situationally in my current position enabled deeper learning.”
As the receiver, Crittenden monitors the supply of raw materials and maintains the records for inventory. She credits her education for how she’s been able to make suggestions that improved raw material storage and visual management within the plant.
