As we continue to expand, there comes a need to add to our list of highly-skilled, professional employees.  Our sustained growth has opened up a new position within Yazoo and we are happy  o welcome Trisha Schedel, our new Human Resources/Safety Coordinator, to the team!

Trisha is a York College alum with her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  After graduation, she soon learned that teaching wasn’t for her and got a jump start into the recruiting world, which began her career path to Human Resources.  Before coming to Yazoo, she worked at a local staffing agency.  Her background includes recruiting and on-boarding new staff for various industries.

When asked what she likes most about working at Yazoo she said, “I like working at Yazoo for many reasons.  My coworkers have been very welcoming and helpful to me over the past month.  Employees’ voices are heard and ideas are always welcomed.”  She continues to say, “From an HR standpoint, Yazoo’s great reputation attracts many high-quality candidates, which makes recruiting easier!”

In her spare time, you can find Trisha running for miles on end, learning new yoga poses, or crafting up some DIY projects.  She is also preparing [and smiling ear-to-ear] for her upcoming wedding in April to her fiancé, Joel.

We are glad to have Trisha onboard and look forward to watching her grow with the company.

      

Our company has been continuously growing over the past few years at a rapid rate and in return, we have seen a growth in the number of our skilled and experienced employees.  In
May of 2016, Roxanne Erdman joined our Sales Department as a Customer Service Representative.

Before coming to Yazoo, Roxanne worked in Sales and Marketing Analytics for a nationally recognized drug store.  She wanted to find a more stable and reliable job that also allowed her to keep her time with her son, which is what led her to Yazoo Mills.  Roxanne started her college career initially as an architecture major but then switched to Psychology.  Currently, she has one more year left to finish and will be pursing that in the coming months.

When asked what she likes most about working at Yazoo, she said “I like that it is family-owned and a smaller company which gives an open and friendly environment.  Everyone has
been so welcoming and eager to help me learn the business.  I am eager to see how I can grow in my career with Yazoo.”

She likes to spend a lot of her time with her three-year-old son and enjoys doing crafts as well as DIY projects.  She is a big fan of the new adult coloring books and she is a coffee addict.

Yazoo is happy to welcome Roxanne to our team and look forward to watching her grow with the company.

       

We would like to give a warm welcome our newest team member, Melinda Cobb.  Melinda started at Yazoo Mills in May of 2016 and is currently our Operations/Logistics Assistant.  Before coming to Yazoo, she worked as an Auditor and Material Tech at a logistics company in Moline, IL.

What she likes most about working for Yazoo is the people.  She says “From my co-workers to my leaders, it is a very positive environment.  I have also gained some of the greatest friends already!”  Melinda goes on to say “Yazoo is simply a great place for me.  From the wonderful people to the opportunities it offers, I am here to stay.”

In her spare time, she likes to go on hikes, workout at the gym, and most importantly, spend time with her family.  She is a proud Mom of a beautiful, 15-month-old baby girl, who takes up much of her time.  She goes on to say “My daughter has the most irreplaceable personality and I put everything into being the best Mom I can be.  For me, being the best person I can be, regardless of where I am at, is very important.  I strive to feel reliable wherever I may be.”  Welcome to the team, Melinda.  We are glad that you are here!

Our team at Yazoo Mills is constantly growing with talented and well-educated employees.  Crystal Miller started working for Yazoo Mills in January of 2016 as our Receptionist.  Before coming to Yazoo, Crystal worked for a flooring and design company in Philadelphia for almost five years as an Account Coordinator.  Within her position there, she was in constant contact with the builders so she could order and schedule all of the flooring and trim needed to install in new homes.  Her previous job experience has led her to become very detail oriented, customer focused, and determined to help solve customer’s questions.

Crystal decided to move back to York County to be closer to her family and friends.  She was only moved back for less than two weeks and heard about the job opening at Yazoo.  The next thing she knew, she was hired and ready to start her journey with the company.  The two things she likes most about working at Yazoo Mills is the teamwork showcased by the employees and the family-like atmosphere.

In her spare time, Crystal likes to read, workout at the gym, spend time with family, and travel.  She has a bucket list of traveling to Ireland, Hawaii, Montana, Italy, and Greece.  Crystal is looking forward to her sister’s upcoming wedding, and traveling out of the country to a Caribbean island next year.  She said “I am excited to learn more about the business in order to grow as a Yazoo employee.”

Welcome to Yazoo Mills, Crystal.  We are glad to have you be a part of our team!

      

      

Our company has been consistently growing over the past few years which has caused us to make many changes to our facilities.  A few months back, the company decided to move the maintenance shop to the pallet warehouse to gain much more space to work and a lot more room for tools and storage.  Yazoo decided to turn the old maintenance shop into a brand new employee break area and renovate the old storage room into new, additional employee bathrooms.

The new enclosed employee break area has a brand new kitchen, two large windows to let natural sunlight in, brand new tables and chairs, and has heating and air conditioning.  This clean, bright, and quiet atmosphere allows employees to step away from their working environment and enjoy their breaks in this new bigger and modern break area.  In addition to the new break area, Yazoo also renovated the old storage room into additional men’s and women’s bathrooms for employees to use.
