The Work Environment
A Commitment to Treating Employees Right
Our company motto is "Always do the right thing for the customer," the same holds true regarding the environment we provide for our employees. We strive to do the right things to facilitate a culture that is not only high performance, but also one that's stimulating and fun to be a part of.
Even with Sweetwater's remarkable growth, the workplace maintains a "small company" feel and a personalized, family-oriented philosophy. From the daily work environment to special occasions, we're always focused on doing what is right for our employees.
Our regularly scheduled activities include company picnics, trips to amusement parks, company nights at sporting events, lunch with Santa for the employees' children, a phenomenal holiday party every January, and turkeys provided for each family at Thanksgiving. We even celebrate when employees have a birthday, get married, welcome a new baby to the family, or buy a house! Plus, we often bring in professionals such as lawyers, bankers, and nurses for free consultations with employees.
