Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?

Memory Icon

Q: What’s your favorite memory of working at Buck Company?

A: I have a lot of great memories here. One that stands out the most, we had a young gal helping out in accounting and she had to refill the red ink in our stamp for invoices. It seemed like a small task that didn’t need much instruction. She refilled the stamp and didn’t use it the rest of the day. I was the next person to use the stamp and red ink exploded everywhere. She never had to refill ink before, and she grossly overfilled the stamp. Lesson learned, my hands were red for days and that stamp was never the same, it was eventually replaced years later. But even when I use the new stamp I proceed with caution and have a nice chuckle.
