Spotlight Series: Rebecca Uhrig from Merchandising

This month we’re meeting Rebecca Uhrig from our Merchandising Team at HQ!

What is your role at Warners’ Stellian?
Pricing and Promotions Assistant.

Tell us more about your role.
A lot of my work is behind the scenes. I assist in promotional pricing, keeping digital tags working, but most people know me through my work with our rebates.

What do you like most about your job?
Definitely the people I work with. Who surrounds you makes things better and you actually look forward to coming to work!

Tell us about your family.
Most of my family still lives in Kansas, but my mom lives in Mankato. I have a younger brother currently in Des Moines going to Drake. I have two cats, Macintosh and Crookshanks. They were both adopted in Kansas, but like living here especially when it snows.

What was your first job?
My first job was in high school, a seasonal position at JoAnn Fabrics. Most of my paycheck when back into JoAnn buying art supplies!

What do you like to do on your days off?
Some days I’ll hit up a brewery with friends, otherwise working on some project around the house or hanging out with my cats. They love weekends when I’m home.

What three words would you use to describe Warners’ Stellian?
Close-knit, challenging, and fun.

What’s your favorite appliance, and why?
Probably the refrigerator. Aside from my love of food, they’re the star of the kitchen.

Tell us something about you that would surprise us or that most people don’t know.
I can’t read my original birth certificate, since it’s in German! My dad was in the military. I wasn’t born on the base, but in a German hospital.

What is the one thing you cannot live without?
I’m torn on this, there’s so many things I want to list. But in day-to-day life, I definitely need my coffee. Close second would be my phone.

If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I’d have to pick pizza. You can change the toppings to make entirely new flavors. I’m also a firm believer that fruit has its place on pizza.

What is your favorite thing to do?
Something creative: art, quilting, baking, reading. I like creating things and making something out of nothing. My most recent project was a quilt for my cousin in celebration of her wedding!
