How long have you been with MGroup™?
KS: September 3rd marked 3 years since I joined the MGroup Family.
What is your role at MGroup™?
KS: I am the shipping clerk for MGroup. I send out all of the sample shipments that are requested, as well as the warehouse shipments. I keep up with the inventory at the warehouse and the Meridien House and order samples when needed.
How did you end up working with MGroup™?
KS: I was with my former employer for over 20 years. I did not feel that I or my work was valued and needed a change. I posted on FB to see if anyone was hiring, and a friend texted me about MGroup. I sent in my resume, and a few weeks later, I was working for MGroup. It was really scary leaving a job after 20+ years for something new, but I am so glad I did.
What is your experience and background in the industry?
KS: I worked for a notable flooring manufacturer for over 20 years. I did everything from driving a forklift, billing trailers, and scheduling the backing range to being part of the Master Data team when they transitioned to SAP. I was in international traffic for several years booking containers for international shipment as well as SLI for the freight forwarder. I was also an inventory control clerk in the warehouse for awhile, which helps in my current position with MGroup. All of my work experiences make me the worker I am today. Every job I have had, contributed something I can use today in my current position.
What do you enjoy most about working for MGroup™?
KS: There are a lot of things I love about MGroup. The two things I enjoy the most is the way MGroup feels like a second family to me. Everyone really cares about each other and we support each other. Secondly, everyday is different. I might be rounding up samples, finding the best possible box to ship that sample in, but each day offers something different.
What are the values that drive you?
KS: Hard work and determination, doing the best job that I can.
What is the most interesting thing you’ve done while at MGroup™ or something that was the most memorable about working at MGroup™?
KS: I work with Regina everyday, so everyday is memorable! With that being said, Halloween last year was so much fun! The company held a department costume contest, and we dressed up as Hocus Pocus. I can’t wait for Halloween this year. We are going to win the costume contest again!
