CONNECT TO SOMETHING BIGGER

If you have a strong purpose in life, you don't have to be pushed. Your passion will drive you there. Purpose is the guiding light in a strong workplace culture, and the appetite our team members have to pursue their passions is driven by U.S. Venture's four differentiating values—caring relationships, entrepreneurial spirit, high performance and strategic foresight. We believe in people over process, and we take pride in taking care of our team members.

    • Caring Relationships

      Human beings naturally crave friendship and positive interactions, and according to Gallup, people who have a good friend in the workplace are more likely to be happier and more productive. Our differentiating value of caring relationships pushes team members to foster fun and friendship and show compassion in all aspects of the job—with one another, our customers, our vendors and our community partners.

    • Strategic Foresight

      Vision is everything. At U.S. Venture, our differentiating value of strategic foresight reminds us to broaden our perspectives, visualize the future, and create a roadmap to win. We hire futuristic leaders who are brave enough to ask “why” and “when” just as much as they’re willing to ask “what” and “how.” When it comes to staying ahead in an ever-changing industry, we embrace untraditional thinking, diverse worldviews and relentless curiosity.

LIFTING UP OUR COMMUNITIES

U.S. Venture has a long history of influencing social change, starting with the company’s founders—Art, Ray and Bill Schmidt—and their parents, Albert and Margaret. We believe that by giving people the tools to lead healthy, productive lives, we can help them lift themselves out of poverty. In 2017, U.S. Venture’s philanthropic impact totaled $10.7 million, with $3.97 million of that raised at the U.S. Venture Open, the nation’s single largest one-day charity event. The company’s impact is only as strong as the success of its team members, which is why the company offers volunteer paid time off and matches up to $1,000 of every team member’s donations every year.
