Introducing A Star: Meet Janie

Introducing A Star: Meet Janie

How long have you been with glitterstarz, and how did you hear about the position?

It will be 10 years in November. I found the job listing on Craig’s List…it was for ‘part time’ work. I told Liz I would work a few hours a day, a few days a week…YEAH that never happened! 35-40 hour weeks, 10 years later, and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
 

what is your role at glitterstarz?

I am the “Chief” Lead Heat Presser, applying rhinestone and vinyl designs to our products. I am also the final step in assuring the quantities are correct, then packaging and preparing for shipping.

what is your favorite memory from working at glitterstarz?

After 10 years, there are WAY TOO MANY MEMORIES to pick just ONE favorite. We are truly a FAMILY here and I am so blessed to be a part of the amazing crew here. We laugh together, we cry together, we support each other, we work hard, and we definitely play hard. Some favorite stand outs are ALL the crazy theme parties, the silly shenanigans and pranks, like hiding a remote doorbell in Liz’s office (HAHA), and the Halloween challenge with Kelly. We had a Life-sized Animated Jason prank (from Friday the 13th) that carried on for weeks. There is never a dull moment around here; THAT is for sure.
 
 

what IS YOUR FAVORITE PRODUCT, RHINESTONE DESIGN, ETC., THAT YOU HAVE SEEN COME TO FRUITION AT GLITTERSTARZ?

A LOT of product has passed through my hands over the years, so it would be really, really difficult to pick a favorite. Even after 10 years, it’s still amazing to watch something go from a vision/concept to the end product. It is proof that our team works tirelessly from beginning to end to put out a quality product.
 
 

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?

ANYTHING that involves quality time with my amazing Husband, my dog, and hanging out with my awesome adult Sons, especially when it involves getting away in our camper, and/or going to “our happy place” in Eagle River Wisconsin. I also enjoy getting together with our family and friends, and I have a passion for photography.
 

What is one thing people may not know about you?

Hmm…What people DON’T know about me is all a part of the mystery. I always like to keep people guessing and wondering what I’m capable of.
 

What is something exciting that has happened to you this year?

My husband has become eligible to start the retirement process after 35+ years in the Fire Service. We are very excited to see where, and on what kind of adventures, this next part of our journey through life will take us. Let the countdown begin
