Long Time Yazoo Mills Employee Gets Promoted

    

In today’s working world, it seems almost impossible to find good employees that are looking to stay at a company for a long time and make a career out of their work. When it comes to working at Yazoo Mills, we treat everyone like family which has contributed to our success of employees who remain with the company for many, many years.

Meet Donnie Myers. Donnie has been with Yazoo for almost 20 years now and has worked all of those years in our Winding Department.  When he first started his journey with the company, he held the position as a Winding Operator.  As time went on, Donnie was promoted to 2nd shift Winding Supervisor, in charge of over 15+ employees and managing the night shift production order and manufacturing flow.

Through Donnie’s hard work and dedication, he has recently been promoted to 1st shift Winding Supervisor at our newly expanded manufacturing facility located in Hanover, PA.  In his current role with the company, he schedules orders, checks for quality and makes sure that the production is flowing smoothly.  When asked what he likes best about working at Yazoo over the last 19 years, he said “The pay is the best in the area and the benefits are awesome – you really can’t beat what Yazoo offers.  Along with excellent job security, I also like that the employees are given the opportunity to make advancements within the company.”

During his free time, you can find Donnie doing all things outdoors – hunting, fishing and boating. He also likes spending time with his family, traveling around the country to support his boys who compete in archery tournaments.  Congrats on your well-deserved promotion, Donnie!
