What do you want to know

  • AriensCo is looking for around 100 people for open manufacturing jobs
  • It manufactures snow blowers and lawn mowers used worldwide
  • Employees and management highlight the ability to learn new skills and grow within the company

“I like the fact that I can do multiple stations because it’s not just boring doing the same thing every day,” she said. “Right now I’m in the master assembler program, so I’m going to learn the whole line at some point, which will be really good because then it’s a different thing every day.”

Holzschuh has been with the company for just over a year and has developed her skills and knowledge to the point where she helps train others.

“I’ve never used power tools, ever. So it was really awesome to create a new skill set that I can say, ‘Yeah, I know how to use all of that now,’” she said. “It’s also great to teach others. I am currently training someone today.

The development of these skills and the opportunity to grow are aspects of the job highlighted by Ariens employees and management.

The company is looking for people for about a hundred manufacturing positions, ranging from assemblers to machine operators, painters, welders and other specialized positions. It also has open professional positions.

Welder Conner Gibson has been with Ariens for eight years, developing his skills and watching others rise through the ranks.

It tells the story of a fellow welder.

“She started out in picking and she did the Grown Your Own Welder program through Ariens. Now she’s a welder that I’ve trained,” he said. “She’s one of the best welders that we have. You can grow. There’s always a place for someone here.

Alyssa Laabs was hired as an assembler three months ago.

With the help of her co-workers, she has made the transition to her job building snow blowers and is learning something new every day.

“Yesterday I thought was a really good day because I learned something new. I was excited to tell my family about it,” Laabs said.

It’s not uncommon for employees to see their finished work in the store or at work in the Wisconsin communities where they live.

“Every time I see an Ariens product, I’m like, ‘Oh, I probably did that,'” Holzschuh said. “Or, if I see them at the store, I’ll check the labels to see if I actually made it.”
