For more than four years, Hayden Wallace has been making a difference at Saddle Creek Logistics Services in Groveport, Ohio. He has had several different roles, and today he serves as an Inventory Supervisor.
“I started working at Saddle Creek as an hourly associate when this distribution center opened. I had the opportunity to become a lead on a night shift and a weekend shift, and then I was promoted to inventory supervisor,” he remembers. “Saddle Creek has allowed me to learn more deeply about logistics, different ways of moving products, and process improvement. Each time I’ve been promoted, I’ve had to widen my lenses.”
Hayden is a problem-solver and a process improvement enthusiast. He likes to start his day by checking to make sure his team has everything they need to do their tasks successfully and meet their goals.
“I like to focus on improving the quality of life in our warehouse. I’m always evaluating how we can adjust the layout and the way we pick and set up items. I look for ways to minimize the time spent on a process without sacrificing quality and to make it more accurate without sacrificing speed. It’s a fine line to walk,” he says.
Hayden believes he found the right people to encourage him on his career path.
“I’ve always worked hard and been eager to learn, but it was a game-changer when I met people who gave me opportunities to grow. I’m glad that Saddle Creek took a chance on me,” he explains.
