Transitioning Into a New Role

      

Whenever there is a job vacancy at Yazoo Mills, we always open it up to current employees as well so they have the opportunity to grow into a new position within the company.  Recently,
Andrew Reynolds, who has been working at Yazoo for five years, transitioned into a new role as the Shipping Lead Person for our Shipping Department.

Andrew attended East Stroudsburg University and graduated in 2008 with his Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  After a few years of being a substitute teacher in a very competitive job market, he decided that he needed a more permanent income which lead him to look for another job.  A friend of his mentioned that Yazoo was hiring at the time so he decided to give up substitute teaching for a steady income job with great benefits and opportunity to grow within the company.

He got his start in our Winding Department as a Machine Operator and eventually worked his way up to a Winding Floater.  He says “The thing I like most about Yazoo is their continuous growth, which provides a bright future for myself as well as my co-workers.”  When he’s not at work, you can find him on his family’s farm, helping his father raise beef cattle and
crops.  When he’s not on the farm, he likes to spend his extra time in the woods hunting and doing anything outdoors.

Congratulations on your promotion, Andrew.  We are proud to have you be a part of our talented team!
