Employee Spotlight: Jim Voss
To live “Up” in a “Down” economy takes perseverance. No one knows that better than warehouse A-Team member Jim Voss. Finding himself without a job because of the recent economic downturn, Jim took a part-time position with AmeriLux in the fall of 2012 to make ends meet.
The final phases of the 21,000 square foot warehouse expansion were well underway when Jim joined the warehouse team. Jim was hired to help with setting up the new addition; the time-consuming tasks of rack assembly and moving inventory.
Finding a job in today’s economy can be tough and it’s easy to get discouraged. Instead of being discouraged by his “part-time” job status, Jim chose to seize the opportunity to show initiative, be proactive, and get things done without waiting for someone else to tell him. Jim’s diligence and hard work did not go unnoticed. When a full-time warehouse position became available, Jim was offered the job and was later promoted to the position of Team Leader. His responsibilities include overseeing the facilitation of orders for one of AmeriLux’s largest key accounts.
“It’s been a very rewarding experience working with this quality-focused warehouse team and to see my hard work pay off”, said Jim. “Believe in yourself. Keep going. Keep trying, because eventually it will pay off.”
