What makes Lineage an exciting place to work?
Working for the largest, best in class, and most dynamic provider of temperature-controlled logistics services screams excitement! For those associates and leaders looking for a future in this industry, there is no better place for opportunities. The unique culture of “we” instead of “I” fosters a team atmosphere that promotes growth both personally and as a team.
What would you tell someone considering a career in supply chain, logistics, or at Lineage?
If you are ready for a challenge, tackling something new every day, making quick decisions in a fast-paced environment, working hard, etc. then you are ready for a career in logistics. If you are ready for all that and want to work for the fastest growing company in this space, then you are ready to work for Lineage!
If you had to deliver a message directly to our hourly warehouse team members, what would you say?
I would start by saying THANK YOU! Without you, there is no Lineage. It is your hard work and dedication that allows me to keep my promises to our customers. When I explain to a potential customer that there is no better company to take care of your valuable goods, I must back that up. Your commitment and dedication allow me to say that and feel confident that we can deliver on those promises.
What does Lineage’s purpose mean to you and why is it important?
Our ability as an organization to eliminate waste within the food supply chain is so important. Every pound of food that makes it through the supply chain successfully is an opportunity to feed someone, especially those in need. We take it for granted that food will be on shelfs and available at any time, but it takes dedication and hard work to ensure that food gets to consumers safely.
