"Saddle Creek is really invested in my personal development and growth.”Zach Salafia
Zach Salafia is on the fast track at Saddle Creek Logistics Services. After completing his studies at Ohio State University, he joined the company’s Management Trainee Program (MTP) in Atlanta. Just over a year later, he now oversees 20 associates and the daily operations of a 450,000-square-foot warehouse. Zach ensures the timely unloading of up to 30 inbound and 60 outbound orders per day.
“I chose Saddle Creek, in part, because I thought it would give me the best chance to learn and to lead. That has certainly been the case,” Zach confirms. “From the beginning, I was impressed by the company’s commitment to the Management Trainee Program. Saddle Creek is really invested in my personal development and growth.”
Saddle Creek’s MTP is a two-year rotational program which provides recent graduates with a unique opportunity to obtain on-the-job training while actively participating in day-to-day operations.
“Bigger companies will see you as a number. Smaller companies won’t allow you to grow. Saddle Creek is the perfect middle ground,” Zach explains. “The company truly cares about associates at every level and gives you the opportunity to flourish as a young professional.”
When asked about his Saddle Creek journey, Zach says, “People are what set Saddle Creek apart. Experienced professionals offer great advice and the help you need to succeed. I had never worked with individuals with such diverse skill sets from all walks of life until I joined Saddle Creek, but I have learned something different from each of them. Whether it’s that of a 20-year associate or a first-year manager, the wisdom of my colleagues at Saddle Creek has helped to set me up for success, no matter what challenges I face.”
