Hard Work Leads to Promotion

    

At Yazoo Mills, we take great pride in our employees and the work they do for our company. We provide on-site training for all employees to ensure their jobs are being done safely as well as helping them learn new things that will potentially lead to a job advancement.  We love to see our employees excel in their job roles, especially when an employee is promoted to a new position.

Meet Kevin Bachota. He’s been with Yazoo for over 9 years and started out as a 1st shift winding operator.  Throughout his tenure here, he has also held other positions such as a winding trainer and a floater.  Through hard work, persistence and his drive to learn new things, Kevin has recently been promoted to a Lead in our Winding Department.  Within his new role, Kevin is responsible for ensuring that quality of production is up to Yazoo’s standards, assists in production efficiency by gathering daily materials needed for the operators, help maintain a safe and pleasurable environment and assist his supervisor with projects and daily duties.

When asked what he likes best about working at Yazoo, he replied with a big smile “I like the competitive page, the way they treat their employees is top-notch, my co-workers are great (and hardworking!) and the growth of the company is never-ending which gives me great job security.” Kevin also goes on to say “Yazoo Mills create a family environment and makes it easy to come to work every day with a smile and positive attitude!”

In his spare time, Kevin likes to spend time with his wife and son (AJ) and watch his some play travel baseball and basketball.  His family also owns a DJ entertainment company on the side so you can most likely find Kevin spinning some tunes at weddings, school dances and private events.

Job well done and congratulations on your recent promotion, Kevin. You deserve it and we look forward to watching you excel in your new position with the company!
