Yazoo Employee Enjoys New Opportunity

    

Our ever expanding and growing company has seen a major growth over the past year with not only customer growth but also career growth. The manufacturing expansion at our Hanover Distribution center this past fall has led to a career opening at our New Oxford location.

Meet Jared Wolf, Yazoo’s new 2nd shift Winding Supervisor at our New Oxford location.  Jared started his career at Yazoo in 2008 as a 2nd shift Winding Operator which then led him to a floating position and then to a lead position, all in the 2nd shift Winding Department.  His prior background experience in manufacturing helped Jared not only excel in all of his positions with the company but also prepare him for his role as a Supervisor.

In his current role as a Supervisor, Jared’s duties consist of overseeing the manufacturing of paper tubes and cores on 2nd shift, making sure that quality control checks are done by the operators and himself, finding new ways to limit the downtime of each winder that is running and make certain that policies and company goals are being met.  One thing he likes about Yazoo is the smaller working environment.  He said “You have a better chance to know everyone on a first name basis and job security… we’re always busy.” He continues to say “I enjoy the responsibility of overseeing my own shift.  It gives me great pride.”  One of the many reasons Jared has remained with Yazoo is because of our hourly pay rate.  He said “It’s one of the best in the area!”

In his spare time over the spring to summer months, he enjoys recreational bass fishing as well as taking his kids out on his small boat to enjoy the outdoors. He also likes to fish in a small tournament trail at one of his local lakes.  In the winter time, he enjoys skiing with his family and just recently started bowling in a couple leagues at a local bowling alley.

A job well done on our promotion, Jared – it’s well deserved!
