Why do our employees love working at Cutco?

Joe Crowley 1st Shift Group Leader - Department 5
“I like working at Cutco because they treat you like you’re family. We’ve had some traumatic life events happen and Cutco was there to help out at every step. Not just the management, but the great people I work right alongside every day. Cutco treats you with respect and when you get that, you are willing to do a lot for them in return.”
Laurie Bernheisel 1st Shift Assembler - Department 59
“When we went to Alaska, I was wearing a Cutco shirt and someone asked how I knew Cutco. I love that no matter where I go, if I'm wearing something with the Cutco logo, I'll always get asked how I know Cutco and I can proudly tell them that I work there. We're known everywhere and that's pretty impressive considering the size of our town.”
Harry Gayton 2nd Shift CNC Profile Grinder - Department 6
“I like working here at Cutco, because we are manufacturing a product that is used in millions of homes. Cutco is vital to our community because it employs our neighbors, helps with local businesses, charities and community functions that keep us focused on helping one another. Our culture here is a family-oriented environment.”
Brooke Snowden Social Media Specialist
“They say if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. I grew up using Cutco, so for me, nothing beats engaging and having conversations with our customers through all of our social media platforms on a daily basis and talking about how much we love Cutco products. This company allows me to express my creativity - alongside working, learning and interacting with some of the greatest, friendliness and funniest people on the planet. Thank you Cutco for bringing me back to my hometown and giving me the ability to love what I do every single day.”
David Snyder Service Representative
“I’ve worked at Cutco for 22 years, assisting our Spanish-speaking clients and sales field. I love that Cutco really focuses on bettering the community. They could just make great knives and call it a day, but they go above and beyond in effort and resources to give back, be leaders and make our community a better place.”
Chantal Scutt Associate CAD Drafter
“I love working at Cutco because the people here are like family to me. Not only does the company reach out to their workers, but they also reach out to our community. One of the ways they reach out is through the program Dream It. Do It.™ With this program, Cutco gives me the opportunity to reach out to kids and show them what drafting is and how they can be creative in what they make.”
