Warehouse Team Leader
“Saddle Creek is a special company that truly cares for its associates. Management is willing to make changes when necessary, invest in our growth and promote from within – as long as you are committed to your job. I plan to keep growing within the company.”Trei Williams
In 2018, Trei Williams learned that Saddle Creek Logistics Services was hiring forklift operators for a new distribution center in Auburndale, Fla. He already had some experience in the logistics industry and had heard positive reviews about the company from friends and family, so he decided to take the chance and change jobs.
“Initially, I started as a forklift operator, and I was promoted to Warehouse Team Leader a few months later,” Trei explains. “This new role has enhanced my ability to support other associates and increased my attention to detail. It was a big adjustment, but, with the support of my team, I was able to rise to the challenge.”
Trei values teamwork and appreciates all the relationships he’s built at the company. As a team leader, he makes every effort to make the workload as easy and fair as possible for all associates.
“I make sure each team member has enough help and the appropriate equipment to complete their tasks. I also encourage them to give me feedback daily, so I can make improvements if necessary. We look after each other and treat each other like family.”
Since joining Saddle Creek, Trei also has been taking advantage of Saddle Creek’s education program to invest in his education. He is now pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at nearby Polk State College. He also has participated in several of the leadership training programs the company offers.
