Growing up Schaefer

Let’s start by getting to know you a little better. Tell us about yourself.

My name is Campbell Schaefer. I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas (aka The Fort) and wholeheartedly think it’s the best city in the country. I currently live in Dallas, which I am slightly ashamed to admit, but don’t worry, I plan to get back to The Fort as soon as I can. I graduated from Texas Christian University in May of 2021 with a degree in Marketing and a minor in Communication Studies. My family used to have a dog – RIP Boone.

What’s something you love to do?

I love playing and watching sports, although the only sport I play now is golf. I am a big football fan and always enjoy going to TCU football games or watching the Dallas Cowboys play.

What’s your favorite place?

It’s hard to just pick a single place. I grew up taking ski trips on Spring Break, so I have always loved being in the mountains.

What do you love about the job?

I love what I do, and I love the role that I am in. But my favorite part about my job here at Schaefer is, without a doubt, the people. The people and the company culture here are unparalleled, and I feel honored that I get to be a part of it.

What is the last thing you binge-watched?

Yellowstone, Peaky Blinders, New Girl.

What’s your favorite book?

Permission to Win by Doug Austin

If you could live in any sitcom, which would it be?

Either New Girl or Brooklyn Nine-Nine. In my opinion, these are two of the funniest shows out there, and I would love to be in either of them.

Are you a listener or a talker?

That’s a tough question. I have to say I think that I fall into both categories. I love to talk to people and share my stories and experiences, but at the same time, I love to listen to others’ stories as well.

If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Mexican food without a doubt. I could eat it every single day.

If there weren’t any more computers, what would be your new occupation?

I love the outdoors. If computers didn’t exist, I would probably go live and work on a ranch somewhere.

What’s the scariest thing you’ve done for fun?

Either going helicopter hog hunting or backcountry skiing.

What’s your favorite children’s story?

Where the Wild Things Are.

If you had an extra hour of free time every day, what would you spend it doing?

If I had an extra hour of free time every day I would probably try to start some sort of side hustle. I’ve always thought it would be fun to try drop shipping on amazon or reselling things from garage sales, craigslist, etc. 

Any words of advice?

Treat others as you want to be treated.

Why Schaefer?

Company culture is a huge part of what I look for in an employer. I was fortunate enough to intern at Schaefer during college, and I got to experience Schaefer’s culture firsthand. The people are second to none, and the unique company culture is almost impossible to duplicate. I chose Schaefer because not only do I enjoy the work but I also enjoy the people I’m working with.
