Interview with Gail, Schott NYC

Name:

Gail Hawkins
 
How long have you worked for Schott NYC?
30 years
 
Job title: 
Purchasing Agent/Customer Service
 
How many jackets do you own?
I don’t even know! Probably about 15 jackets
 
What is your favorite jacket?
My sheepskin coat, it is the warmest coat I own. No matter how bitter cold and windy it is this coat keeps me warm.
 
What’s your favorite story/memory?
My favorite memory is of Irving Schott, even through his 90’s walking the factory to visit all departments, daily.  He always had a smile on his face, wishing all employees a cheerful good morning. 
 
What’s changed since you started?
Computers would be the biggest change for me, from doing my work long hand on paper to entering the work on the computer to be printed.  The website has also allowed us to offer our items to customers who do not live near a retailer.  I now have the opportunity to speak with customers all over the world.
 
What’s stayed the same?
Employees caring about their jobs and their fellow workers. producing a quality item in workmanship and materials. The Schott family working along side their employees when a job needs to be done.
 
What makes Schott special to you?
I do not think of Schott as a company, but as my extended family. Through the years our families entwine. You share good times, bad times, loss and births. The Schott family has always made me feel part of their family.  To work for a company 30 years they have to be doing something great.
