Our Happy Employees

Amber Bacon, Product Marketing Specialist

"One of the greatest feelings is waking up in the morning and looking forward to work. I love my job, thanks to this amazing family-owned company, as well as my colleagues, who I now consider family." Amber Bacon, Associate Product Manager

Trent Lattimore, Packaging Engineer

"Coming from a larger, publicly-held company, I can attest to the family atmosphere the Great Lakes Cheese environment brings to the table. From the production floor to the front office, everyone is ready to help you accomplish your goals, and does so with a smile. All employees want to see the company succeed, and there's a true sense of teamwork anywhere you go." Trent Lattimore, Packaging Engineer

Erin Shirkey, National Account Manager

"Great Lakes Cheese was not the place I originally expected to find a career, but it's now a place I truly appreciate. With hard work and great mentors, I've been able to advance into new roles as my experience and skills have developed. I've worked here for 15 years, but each day, I still continue to learn and be challenged." Erin Shirkey, Senior Sales Operations Manager

Mark Gray, Customer Service Representative

"I’ve been employed with GLC for over 20 years. After hearing from several friends who were working here, especially about the ESOP plan and job security, I decided to exit the construction field for a new career. I’m so glad I made that decision, and the experience of working in both production and the front office has been challenging and rewarding. Being able to participate and contribute to a steadily growing family-oriented business, as an employee-owner, and with the best benefits in the industry, has kept me firmly planted here at GLC." Mark Gray, Customer Service Representative

Jordan Moran, Packaging Engineer

"My experience at Great Lakes Cheese began with a packaging engineering internship during the summer, leading to a full time position at the corporate headquarters. Even as an intern, I was treated not only as an employee with real responsibilities, but also as a member of the GLC family. I can’t imagine working for a better company for my first full-time position out of college." Jordan Moran, Packaging Engineer

Nick Ruskiewicz, Customer Service Representative

"I was recently hired by Great Lakes Cheese as a Customer Service Representative. I realized early on what a powerful commitment to teamwork all employees have here. To work in an office atmosphere where the company succeeds by others doing for others to achieve goals regardless of departments is truly eye opening! Great Lakes Cheese is a very large company that feels like a very large family to me. I’m so excited being part of this GLC team and having the opportunity to participate and contribute to such a successful company."Nick Ruskiewicz, Customer Service Representative

Brian Milnark - Pricing Analyst

"You would think working for a large organization it would be difficult to see yourself making a difference but Great Lakes Cheese is not your typical employer. GLC provides the tools and a supportive team-oriented work environment that allows me to excel at my job. They also offer an Employee Stock Ownership Plan and a 401k Plan to their employees. This gives me the greatest benefit of all, knowing that I’ll have the means to retire when the time comes."Brian Milnark, Pricing Analyst

Tyler Mazanec, Account Manager

"I was recently hired by Great Lakes Cheese as an Account Manager. Throughout my short time here, I have truly felt the family atmosphere that everyone talks about at Great Lakes. This was one of the many reasons why I chose to come work here. Everyone has a great sense of team work and will go out of their way to help you if you need it. It is one of the few companies that truly cares about the success of each employee."Tyler Mazanec, Sales Operations Account Manager
