Svehla / Blue Sky James C. Svehla / Blue Sky When I first started preparing for my job interviews, I had no idea how massive this place actually was. Its 360,000 square feet. Its like the size of six football fields. The conveyor belts are just rumbling. Its a nice reminder of all the items were getting in. When I sit back, I think each item has a story. When were going through shoes, Im like, Who walked in these shoes? These shoes have a story. These shoes have seen things. Those noises remind me these things have been around the world, and we have no idea where, and the fact were able to give them a new home is just cool. I grew up in Madison, Wisconsin.
