Ernest Is (Not) Hiring Again — the Sequel We’ve All Been Waiting For!

July 10, 2019


Some people are our kind of packaging material. Others, not so much. Fortunately, Vice President of Talent Vince Vincent knows how to gently tell some of our stranger applicants, “thanks, but no thanks.” 

In case you missed the first installment of our Not Hiring highlights, grab your popcorn and head over to our playlist. You’ll witness Vince’s harrowing journey to find the ideal candidate to join Ernest Packaging Solutions. There’s thrills. There’s spills. There’s still porcupine quills stuck in Vince’s desk.

With his first set of wild interviews behind him, Vince is sharper than ever — sharp enough to shear any sheep that wander into his office, that’s for sure. This time around Vince tangles with new candidates… and all sorts of new problems. Seriously, who’s the wise guy who let the loincloth dude through the screening process??

We’re glad we have a gatekeeper like Vince, because our workplace is only for the best of the best. We’re way more than just people who make packaging. We’re innovators! We’re creators! We’re the people you look at and say, “Those crazy sons of guns actually did it!” We’re always looking for ways to expand the way people look at packaging — even if we have to make custom cardboard drum kit to prove it.

At Ernest we’re animated by every opportunity to drive better solutions for our clients. Sorry, wolf, not THAT kind of animated. 

“I think it should be fun to come to work, and I want other people to feel that way, too,” says our Founder and CEO Mr. Wilson. It’s been over 70 years since he started Ernest Packaging Solutions with his brother in an L.A. garage, and over the years he’s definitely surrounded himself with people who share his vision. Check out the Wilson Files and learn more about the man that started it all.

When you work for Ernest, every other job feels like you’re slinging sandwiches at the BurgerHound drive-thru. 

See Vince back in action in our latest Not Hiring videos. As you’ll see, we still need people like you and your crew — the best and brightest — on our team. So reach out and apply, if you think you’ve got what it takes to join the Ernest family!
