Ladies in Logistics- March Edition
It’s only fitting for our March LIL to be our latest team member- Victoria! She has been with PGT for several months now and she is definitely thriving!
Victoria decided to follow in her brothers’ footsteps and try out in the industry to see if it was something she’d enjoy. She got into the industry when she was just 18 years old, right out of high school. Her first experience in the industry was working night dispatch. She admittedly had no idea what she was doing.
Now, years later, Victoria’s favorite part of the industry is the fast paced environment and that it requires quick, on the spot, thinking and problem solving. “It’s true that the industry can be stressful at times, but I really enjoy it,” Victoria explained. “PGT has a lot to do with that.”
She further explained that she’s worked with both the “big dogs” and the “little ones” and each place had their own pros and cons. What sticks out to her the most about PGT is the way everyone is willing to step in and help in every aspect. Whether you need help with scheduling, questions, contacts, communication, etc, someone is always willing to lend a hand. “Everyone really wants to see the person sitting next to them succeed,” she said.
Her advice to anyone considering getting into the industry is: “Be ready! It is not easy in the beginning. There’s a lot of information to absorb and you can quickly become lost if you don’t keep yourself organized and just stick with it.” She added that it’s important to lean on your leaders and mentors for help so you can succeed in the industry.
Victoria is leading the way for future sales administrators and we look forward to her continued growth and success! We are happy to have you, Victoria! Keep doing your thing!
