How long have you been with our companies?
What are your job responsibilities?

What led you to our companies?
“I had two friends that already worked here, and they were welders. That’s what I started out as.”
What is your favorite thing about working here?
“I like the challenge of it all. This work is really dynamic, so it changes every day. Every day truly is different. As Forrest Gump says, it’s ‘like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.’ Also, the employees who have been here a long time love the people, the company, and the work. And with anything, you build relationships and that’s what makes the job fun. So, those relationships are special.”
How have the operations of the company changed since you started?
“Mainly, it’s been us continuously trying to improve our ways of doing things. We try to upkeep our standards. For instance, we’ve gone from handwriting tickets to e-ticketing. We always continuously work to improve our methods. Even down to our loaders and pits that now have computerized scales.”

“Anybody that knows me knows that I’ll jump in with any of our teammates and work side by side. As far as stewardship, I treat the company as my own.”

“Spending time with family and my six grandchildren.”
