Shoreham-Wading River High School students got a real-world taste of manufacturing, distribution, corporate and retail careers with a visit to Riverhead Building Supply recently.
The World of Technology class, under the tutelage of teachers Walter Caskie and Jacob Sigerson, had the opportunity to see how interior doors are assembled during the manufacturing and distribution tour, where they witnessed the production of custom millwork (Heritage) and windows being assembled. The students also participated in the production process and saw Riverhead Building Supply’s organizational processes for storing special orders and inventory. Students then met with the Director of Human Resources for a tour of the corporate office facility. Many topics were discussed, such as the essentials of applying for employment, job descriptions, employment expectations, opportunities for advancement within the company, and more. They then met with the Assistant Manager for a tour of the retail store and lumber yard. Students toured the design showroom, explored the warehouse and learned about the various trucks used in the vehicle fleet.
