3 Paid Internships available at Merrow for the Summer 2010


We're opening up three positions for summer internships. Send an email to owen@merrow.com for more information.

3. graphic design

We're looking for brains, energy and a work ethic. Everything else is optional. A 2nd language preferred (but not required). The Marketing Team at Merrow is led by Nate Murray (read about him...), and spends its time and energy designing new marketing material, writing and distributing newsletters, building websites and coming up with clever ways to communicate the value of the brand

Pay is nominal (around $10/hr), but you get great experience, hopefully a terrific recommendation and the opportunity to spend 2-1/2 months doing something consequential.

We are located in 30,000 sq. foot loft space in Fall River, Massachusetts. About 15 Minutes from Providence, and 45 Minutes from Boston. Please apply by email to owen@merrow.com

A NOTE FROM LAST SUMMER'S INTERN:
From one college student to another,
As a summer marketing intern, this is what I’ve learned: Merrow is a passionate company, and an intense/relaxed environment, if that makes sense... There's no dress code, and you can be sure you'll find lots of puppies running around the office. The expectations at Merrow are simple: get the job done. You'll find that you'll have much more responsibility than at most companies, but also be doing more interesting things and getting much more experience. Merrow's got a whole lot of energy and spunk, and if you are those things too, you will enjoy working at Merrow. At the end of the summer, you will have worked hard, enjoyed some laughs, and gained a ton of real world experience.

Stitch Sample Beta Program



Stitch Samples from Merrow
A Beta Program for Merrow Agents.

Starting May 1st 2010 we're sending out stitch samples each week to our agents. We are choosing samples that come from the current weeks production of machines in Fall River,MA.

Each sample comes from an active production run of Merrow Machines.

We are doing this to help Merrow agents become aware of the Machines currently being produced, the myriad of problems that Merrow solves on a day-to-day basis, and to encourage our agents to introduce the samples to their customers. 

We will also be posting all new samples on the blog. 

If this service is helpful, please let us know. It is a Beta Program and will be modified to offer the most value to the market.

Regards,

Charlie Merrow
