When looking for a new employee to join our amazing team, we make sure we take our time to find the perfect fit, not only for our company but also our customers.  It’s important to us to find a teammate who has the drive, determination, compassion and knowledge to allow us to continue giving the best service, experience and products to our valued customers.  We are pleased to announce the hiring of Celsea Weaver, who has joined our Customer Service Department.

Celsea, a graduate from Millersville University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, joins our growing team as a new Customer Service Representative.  Prior to coming to Yazoo, Celsea worked as a Branch Manager at a local staffing agency.  During her tenure there, she worked diligently to place temporary and temp-to-hire staff at local manufacturing facilities.  From interviews to placed advertisements to delegating tasks to her recruiters, she’s well-rounded when it comes to customer service.

As a Customer Service Representative for Yazoo, she is responsible for entering custom, stock and purchase orders as well as handling customer inquiries about orders.  Additionally, she is taking on a temporary role as Receptionist which includes directing phone calls, handling incoming PO’s, entering website, eBay and Amazon orders, assisting customer inquiries, pricing orders, and preparing sales quotes and catalogs for mailing purposes.

Celsea mentions that she has always heard great things about Yazoo Mills and when she saw the job opening posted, she knew she had to jump on it to continue her career in Customer Service with an extremely reputable company.  When asked what she likes most about working at Yazoo, she says “I really enjoy the atmosphere.  Everyone is friendly and very welcoming.  I also feel extremely valued as a team member which says a lot about a company.”

In her spare time, you can find her socializing with her fiancé, friends and family members.  She has a dog named Sam who takes many adventures with her and her fiancé from playing and going on walks to exploring new places.  Additionally, she likes to listen to music, shop and decorate her home.  When asked if she wanted to share anything else, she continued to say “There are quite a few local manufacturing facilities that I am familiar with from my previous employer that placed orders with Yazoo Mills.  It’s great to see local businesses supporting each other.  Being familiar with these businesses also helps me understand how many different uses tubes and cores can really have!”

Welcome to the Yazoo team, Celsea! We are super excited to have you join our company as well as continue to watch you succeed in your role!

    

In 2012, our Hanover Distribution Center was built to broaden our production capabilities, product lines and to accommodate our rapid growth. Throughout the years, the Hanover Distribution Center has continued to grow, expanding to 90,000 square feet and now houses five, custom-built winding lines.  With production growth comes company growth and adding new, knowledgeable employees to our 135+ staff.

Amber Burns joined the Yazoo Mills team in June as the Distribution Center Logistics Assistant at our Hanover location. Before coming to Yazoo, Amber worked for a local logistics company as the Office Manager.  She has been in warehousing for over the last 10 years with knowledge and understanding of the trucking and office work.  As a Logistics Assistant at Yazoo, Amber is responsible for pack out orders, printing BOLs and makes sure the work gets to the warehouse in an orderly fashion and the entire process of shipping goes smoothly.

Amber joined Yazoo to better herself and family, especially with just having a little girl. She heard how great of a company Yazoo is to work for and knew the hours would be very beneficial for her family.  When asked what she likes best about working at Yazoo, she said “The environment is so nice and polite.  With having a little one at home, the hours are very nice and allow me to be home with my family as I did not have the luxury of that at my previous job.”  In her spare time, she likes to spend time with her family and friends, loves all things outdoors, soaking up the special moments with her little daughter and enjoying every minute of her daughter and husband, Shaun.

Since joining the team, Amber has been a great asset to the company and we look forward to watching her excel in her role. Welcome to the team, Amber!
