We are pleased to announce the recent hiring of Mark Staub to the position of Order Prep at our Hanover Distribution Center. For 8 years, Mark was living in the Pittsburgh area and attended Robert Morris University for Sports Management and eventually found his way back to the area.  Mark comes to us from a local headwear manufacturer, where he was a distinguished Shipping Associate, prepping finished orders to be shipped to customers and making sure his department maintained a high-level of customer service.

In his new role of Order Prep at Yazoo, Mark prepares customer orders to be pushed through to production.  He checks rates, figures out how the order will ship, prints packaging labels, prints the customer specification sheet to attach to the order and then sends the order through to the plant.  He also enters job orders for stock replenishment.   What drew him to apply at Yazoo was his neighbor, who also is a Yazoo employee, was very enthusiastic about working here and encouraged him to apply.  Mark said “I feel like if a person is really trying to get you to work where he/she is, then there is a pretty good reason to also want to work there.”

When asked what he likes most about Yazoo, he replied “I genuinely do enjoy the people I work with and who I work for. While I do get busy quite often, what I like most is that when I clock out, I’m done.  I’m fortunate enough to say that my work ‘doesn’t follow me home.’  The pay is also super sweet – the best in the area, by far!”  In his spare time, you can find Mark chasing around his three kids, spending time with his wife, playing the card game called Pitch and going to see a good movie in theaters.

Welcome to the team, Mark – We’re excited to watch you grow with our company!
