We are proud to announce that Norma Myers has been promoted to Supervisor in the Recut Department. During her 29-year tenure at Yazoo Mills, she has held numerous positions in the Recut Department starting out as a packer and working her way into her most current role as a Supervisor. Myers came to Yazoo with a manufacturing background, which is an industry she has always enjoyed working in.
In her new role, she manages 13 employees in the automatic recutter area. She ensures that her team is continuously checking quality, maintaining productivity and moving work around for her department to remain as efficient as possible.
She says “I would not be where I am today if it weren’t for my team members and keeping the ‘never stop learning’ mentality. Yazoo has given me opportunities to learn and train which in return allows me to contribute to helping our customers receive the best quality products in the industry.”
The advice she would give to our younger workers? She says “Be open-minded and grow with the company. If you are willing to apply yourself, future opportunities will present themselves. Be prepared to adapt and look for ways to continue helping the company evolve. Never be afraid to share an idea.”
Question: If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
Norma: I would definitely fly back to Vegas with my sister to explore the city and try my luck at a few games to hopefully win big!
We are proud to have Norma on our team and look forward to watching her lead continue to lead the Recut department to success. Congrats, Norma!
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.
