What makes you want to join a new company? For Ryan Cunningham, a Distribution Supervisor at Saddle Creek Logistics Services in Fort Worth, Texas, a supportive work environment was crucial. That was the primary reason he joined the company’s Management Trainee Program (MTP) in 2019.
“I received other offers, but, ultimately, I chose Saddle Creek because I felt I would be valued as an associate,” Ryan explains. “During the interviews, I noticed how the team works with respect and collaborates with each other. After working at the company for the past months, I can say with confidence that Saddle Creek has a working environment like no other company in the industry”, Ryan explains.
Ryan joined the MTP program as a recent graduate from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, with a degree in Supply Chain Management, a collateral in Marketing, and a dual minor in Spanish and Entrepreneurship. Ryan believes his skills have grown exponentially since he started his journey at Saddle Creek.
“You can only learn so much about the industry from school,” he explains. “Coming here has allowed me to take my previous knowledge and apply it in a hands-on environment. I am really taking advantage of this opportunity to increase my understanding of different aspects of the business.”
When asked his advice for recent graduates, Ryan says, “You should look for a company that respects what you do and gives you the opportunity to grow. The Management Trainee Program at Saddle Creek allows professionals straight out of college to learn all sides of logistics as well as true management skills.”
Ryan considers the opportunity to work alongside so many experienced associates to be one of the best parts of his journey. “I have a large learning curve ahead of me, but everyone here is willing to help me overcome my challenges as a professional and as a logistics manager,” he explains.
