Partners, doing important work
At Schreiber, we call ourselves partners – not employees – and there’s a good reason behind that. Our work is more than just a job. We make the company grow. We help each other grow and take care of each other along the way. And, we all share in the rewards. That’s our company culture.
Being a Schreiber partner is both exciting and challenging because we own our future. Our common goals drive and energize us as we work together to be the best we can be. And we do it in a way that takes care of our people, our food, our earth and our communities.

‘Partners here are super-nice and supportive’
It was a moment Rachel had been dreading since learning her Wisconsin National Guard unit would be deploying to Afghanistan. How would she tell her leader she’d be leaving work for a year?
“I felt really bad about leaving,” said Rachel, a member of the 2nd Battalion, 127th Infantry, based in Appleton. “I didn’t want to leave Schreiber shorthanded, or put additional stress on partners who’d have to cover my shift or perform my duties.”
Rachel now realizes she needn’t have worried because Schreiber is like family – partners care deeply about each other and step up willingly to help when life happens.
“My leader reassured me that Schreiber would be accommodating and that she was excited for me,” Rachel said. “That sense of caring is one of the reasons I fell in love with Schreiber.”
Rachel joined Schreiber as an intern at home office in 2016. She realized early on in her internship that Schreiber is a special place to work.
“Partners here are super-nice and supportive,” she said. “Even as an intern, anytime I went on a long training drill, I’d come back to work to find that my coworkers had decorated my desk with balloons and confetti to welcome me back. They took the time to make sure I was okay and never complained about having to take over my duties while I was away.”
The warm smiles and words of encouragement have continued since partners learned of Rachel’s upcoming mission in Afghanistan.
That support has meant the world to Rachel as she prepares for her very first deployment.
“As a little kid, I always looked forward to our school’s assembly programs when they’d bring in members of the military,” she said. “They’d hold up the American flag and we’d sing to them. I could sense the pride they felt in what they did. I’ve wanted to join the military ever since.”
