Stepping Into a New Role

    

In today’s world, hardworking and dedicated employees seem to be hard to find. However, at Yazoo – those two adjectives describe our employees, which over 50% of them have been here for more than 10 years.

Meet Norma Myers – she started her career at Yazoo Mills 27 years ago in our Recut Department as a Packer. Since she started with the company, she has held numerous positions such as a Machine Operator, Trainer, and Floater.  Through hard work, dedication, and willingness to learn, we are proud to announce Norma’s promotion into a Lead role within our Recut Department.

Within her new role, quality is her main concern. She makes sure that customer specifications, tolerances, etc. are correct and ready to be shipped out.  Myers also helps with training employees, teaching them more effective ways to be efficient with the machines and order flow.

“I’ve been here for a long time and have seen so many positive changes to better the company and workforce. Yazoo puts their employees first and that’s one of the many reasons why I am still here, 27 years later!” Myers said.  In her spare time, she likes to spend time creating memories with her family and friends, and finding new ways to make people laugh.

Congratulations on your promotion, Norma! We are glad to have you be a part of the Yazoo team.
