A company that promotes within is a hard company to come by.  At Yazoo Mills, we give every employee the opportunity to apply for any open positions we have throughout the company.  We are proud to promote within and are proud of our employees for continuously improving their skills and leadership that lead them into their next role with our company.

Meet Rob Boone.  Rob started his career at Yazoo Mills 11 years ago as a dayshift Winding Operator and quickly found himself in a floater position in our Winding Department.  Throughout the years, Rob has proved that his work ethic, training, and knowledge of our company, products, and employees is his priority and continues to find ways to improve the operations at Yazoo Mills.

Recently, Rob accepted a Lead position at our Hanover Distribution Center located in Hanover, PA.  Within the new role, he is scheduling, checking products and gathering materials needed to help make sure the work is flowing smoothly.  What he likes most about working at Yazoo is “the challenges of troubleshooting issues and getting to know my coworkers better.”  In his spare time, you can find Rob spending time with his family, camping, enjoying the outdoors and taking trips to the shooting range.  Congrats on your well-deserved promotion, Rob!

A company that truly and genuinely cares for its employees is very hard to come by these days.  Sometimes, employers are only focused on getting a head of their competition while forgetting to put their employees first.  Even after 115 years, Yazoo continues to remain a team player for all of its employees.

We recognize that without great employees to produce products and service for our customers, we would have no business.  That’s why Yazoo treats every employee like family.  We offer healthcare, training, career advancement, and personal growth opportunities.  We want our employees to thrive within our company not only as individuals, but also as a team.

Yazoo has the utmost respect for our employees.  The thing that really differentiates ourselves from our competition is our people.  Our continued growth has not only been achieved by reinvesting in our facilities and our equipment, but also reinvesting in our people and making sure that they are getting the most out of working at Yazoo.  One of the many things we provide is leadership training for our employees.  This training helps create an even more positive working environment and helps our employees continue to be influential team players.
