Today on my Facebook wall, an acquaintance asked the question “What would you do for a living other than what you do today?” and I was thinking about it. What could possibly be better than working with great artists, (some of the hippest and truly best people around) and our customers. Entrepreneurs, free spirits, creative in their own right, and great folks.
We love ’em all.
And then I thought, one of the best things about Yujean is our staff, and maybe it’s time to introduce a few of them.
Doug is our warehouse manager, although he prefers the title “Sticker Slinger”. Doug is smart and fast and hardworking, and juggles a million things at once. On the days that he picks the music in the warehouse (they take turns: we are in SOME ways democratic!) it’s rap. Crazy, right? His loyal dog Lexie is queen of the warehouse.
Scott is purchasing-plus. He orders our products from their various manufacturers, tracks and arranges shipments, keeps track of stock (so you hopefully VERY rarely have a backorder!), pulls and packs orders and keeps things straight. On his radio days, it’s NPR ALL the time! Scott is calm and quiet, and the funniest guy. He keeps the mood light, even when things get crazy.
Noah does it all–EDI specialist (no one but him really knows what that is, except that it is an enormously complex and absurd way that huge companies get orders and control information: I think I prefer to leave it to Noah!), customer service rep and order packer and preparer. Noah plays a didgeridoo in his spare time and I am willing to bet, were there a radio station that played it, he would tune into it! (But Noah–can ya dance to it?)
Great crew, great people, and we are happy they are part of the Yujean team!
And finally Pumpkin, our newest team member. She may be a poodle, but she is funny as anything, and a swell cheerleader. As you see here.
