Product Handling Coordinator
“Saddle Creek listens to associates and makes changes to improve the work environment. And we’re always looking for new ways to improve quality and efficiency for our clients.”Horacio Zamarripa Jr.
The friendly work environment at Saddle Creek Logistics Services was what first attracted Horacio Zamarripa Jr. when he joined the company as Forklift Operator in Auburndale, Fla., in 2018. Since then, he has learned that Saddle Creek stands out in other ways as well.
Horacio especially appreciates Saddle Creek’s commitment to providing a safe work environment.
“It feels safe here,” he says. “Saddle Creek has lots of safety regulations in place. They make safety a priority over everything else, and they’re always looking for ways to improve.”
Continuous improvement is a focus at the company, Horacio points out.
“Saddle Creek listens to associates and makes changes to improve the work environment,” he notes. “And we’re always looking for new ways to improve quality and efficiency for our clients.”
Horacio is impressed by the way Saddle Creek promotes performance and accountability. As he has learned firsthand, the company consistently rewards those who go the extra mile. In 2019, he was promoted to Product Handling Coordinator and Trainer.
In his new role, Horacio trains groups of associates and ensures that they follow warehouse safety procedures and product handling guidelines.
“The best part about my job is making my peers feel safe in the workplace and comfortable to ask questions,” he says.
Horacio and Tony Colon, his supervisor, recently designed a training program for new associates.
“After orientation week, we have trainers available to give associates individual attention during their shifts. It helps them feel comfortable and learn the skills they need to provide excellent customer service,” he explains.
Horacio credits Tony for giving him the support and guidance to help him grow in his own career.
“I come to work every day because I feel supported in my work environment,” Horacio says. “I would definitely recommend Saddle Creek to other professionals.”
