Today we interview one of our longtime warehouse experts. Few people realize how much of a challenge and how much pressure it is dealing with upwards of 20,000 different products in multiple warehouses, but we have one person in particular who can tell you all about it. Let's see what she has to say.
How long have you
worked at FSI?
I came on board in early 2006, so I’ve been with FSI for nearly five and a
What is your role
I am the Inventory Control Supervisor. Pretty much
anything related to inventory is part of my job description.
What did you do
before FSI, and how in the world did you get roped in with these guys?
For 18 years I was a
warehouse manager for a printing company in Connecticut. We eventually relocated to Georgia to grow my
husband’s Pest control business. When I got settled in I looked through the
phone book for companies in the fulfillment business, faxed in my resume, and
the rest is history.
What do you enjoy
about the fulfillment business?
I enjoy the demands of the
business and the challenges of meeting deadlines. Believe me, there’s never a
slow day at FSI.
What have been
some of your memorable moments from your time at FSI?
Definitely our company gatherings. They have all been memorable. One that sticks out was playing “Deal or No
Deal” at a Christmas party awhile back.
What do you think
separates FSI from other fulfillment companies? What makes FSI different?
I would have to say FSI’s
Order accuracy and ability to offer customized online programs. It’s definitely different than other
fulfillment companies, and with 18 years at a different fulfillment house, I
can say that from experience.
FSI has enjoyed
some growth (13,000 ft² - 150,000+ ft²), longevity (14+ years), and won some
awards along the way since the business began in 1996. What would you
attribute FSI’s success to?
Very simple, it is FSI’s
determination to be the best in the business.
What do you enjoy
doing with your spare time outside of FSI?
I enjoy spending time with my
family, fishing, and playing football with my boys.
