Meet Gunner

A Local Addition

It’s that time again! Meet one of our newest team members: Gunner!

Gunner is a local guy, joining us from just around the corner in Loveland, Ohio. He is married to his wife Morgan of two years and together they have a one year old named Hudson. Of course, you can’t leave out the animals! Gunner has two cats, Max & Sox, along with one Bernese Mountain Dog, Murphy. He is the youngest of four boys in his family.

When it’s all said and done, at the heart of his motivation and drive is his family. He wants his family to have the best life possible and believes he can provide that by joining our team at PGT. 

“I just want to give my kids more than what I had,” he stated.

He’s a Cincinnati sports fan through and through, so much so that he is a season ticket holder to FC Cincinnati. A fun fact about Gunner is that his dream as a kid was to be a photographer. Why? Because of Spiderman! Somewhere along the way, that dream must have changed, because he’s about as far from it as he can get working at PGT (HA!). 

“The one thing that drew me to PGT early on and since I’ve been here is the people,” Gunner explained. “It’s just a genuinely good group of people and I’m excited to be part of that group as I learn the ins and outs of all things PGT!”

Welcome to the team, Gunner!! We are happy to have you.

Meet Ashley

A True Cincinnati Native

Our newest associate and latest addition to our Logistics Coordinator staff is Ashley! She is a Cincinnati native, born and raised here her entire life. She went to school in Mariemont and currently lives in Milford!

Ashley celebrated ten years of marriage this year. Together their blended family consists of four children and two cats. Ashley has one biological son who is 11 along with three bonus kids, ages 21, 16, and 15. Her two cats are rescues from the SPCA. In the winter, their free time is spent at the Cincinnati Cyclones hockey team as a season ticket holder!

She has been in logistics for about two years, but when she thought about joining PGT, it was the small, family company that drew her in. “I’ve worked at a couple different multi-billion dollar companies in the past, and I realized it just isn’t for me. I feel like a smaller company is the way to go!”

Money tends to be the motivator for most people who show up to work every day, and Ashley definitely fits in that category. She knows at PGT, her paycheck is determined by her drive and success. That’s why she takes a lot of pride in her adaptability. “I am a quick learner once I can get my  hands on things,” she explained.

Her best advice to anyone looking to join the team in any type of sales/negotiation role would be to befriend a truck driver outside of work to help you see both sides of the industry. She also believes having a yard sale will help tremendously. She added, “have a yard sale and haggle the prices on every single item. You’ll build some strong negotiation skills that way.”

In her free time, Ashley enjoys crafting. She started a small crafting business during the peak of COVID. She’s excited for the craft fair in November!

We are excited to see how Ashley grows the account she works on daily! Big things are in store!

Meet Jim D

New to Industry, not new to Sales

We recently added another Jim to our team, the second one this year! Maybe it’s a new trend?! Let’s introduce you to Jim Dietz, our newest team member!

Jim was born and raised in Northern, Kentucky. He attended the University of Cincinnati where he graduated with a bachelor’s in marketing. He has been in sales for almost five years, but is new to the logistics world. He lives with his girlfriend, Macee and their cat, Oliver.

Like most people, Jim is motivated by his family and girlfriend. He takes a lot of pride in how hard he works and the respect he has for anyone around him. He loves being outside and enjoying time with his family and friends. Jim isn’t one to turn down some golf, hunting, or fishing. “Just get me outside in my free time and I’m happy!”

He hasn’t been here long, but it usually doesn’t matter when it comes to culture at PGT. Jim said he really enjoys the atmosphere and colleagues at PGT. “Working at a great company with great culture and people makes coming here every day a lot more enjoyable,” he explained. “That’s exactly what I would tell anyone considering joining the team here.”

March LIL

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!

January LIL

New Year, New LIL

New to the industry? No problem.

Natasha Caudill joined PGT over eight months ago as our second Logistics Administrator. Her role started as operational, but has quickly turned into more of a back office position where she handles a lot of our accounting and behind-the-scenes tasks.

When she was asked what intrigued her the most about the industry, she explained that it was the entrepreneurial atmosphere she felt at PGT. She also shared that “the logistics world is much more exciting than I expected because of the fast-paced environment.” 

She encourages others to join the industry but “the expectation to ‘work hard, play hard’ is very real, however, the rewards PGT has to offer is definitely worth it.” For Natasha, PGT provides endless opportunities for all women and men equally. She further explained that “ladies are never left out and are equally included and recognized.”

We are thrilled to have to Natasha on our team and are excited to see her continue growth and success.

PGT takes pride in our ability to treat everyone as equals and provide equal opportunities for everyone.

Why do you work?

The million dollar question: why do you go to work every day?

In a perfect world, you love what you do. You enjoy going to work, wherever that may be, and you are genuinely happy doing it. That doesn’t always pan out, but you do it because you need a job to pay your bills. What if we told you that having both was a very real possibility? Here us out.

The pay.

The atmosphere.

The benefits.

The growth potential.

People often save the best for last, but let’s be real- this is what most people care about first. We pay above the industry average. We are always hiring sales brokers. Why? Because we are always growing to better serve our customers. Our brokers make base + 40% uncapped commission! No, that’s not a typo. FORTY PERCENT UNCAPPED COMMISSION! Why? Because we want you to join our team and stick around for the long-term. What better way to do that to pay you what you deserve?

Relaxed. Casual. Fun. Sound good yet? PGT is all of those things and then some. We want everyone to enjoy coming to work. Sure, there are always going to be bad days, but we believe there are more good days than bad here. There are TVs going, music in the background, and often jokes and stories flying back and forth. We enjoy simple things like casual attire, walks around the building, flexibility, and team events outside of the office.

Our list of benefits continues to grow as we grow. We currently offer a 401k with a 401k match! We want you to be with us until you retire, so let us help get you there. We pay a cell phone stipend and paid time off at time of hire. In addition, we can get you set up with medical, dental and vision insurance. Not bad for a company less than two years old, right?

New company = endless opportunities. We have a solid staff that has laid the groundwork for success, now we just need you to help build the foundation of our future. As we grow, so do the opportunities. The potential to move up into various other roles is endless. You can do as much as you want with us and go as far as you want to go. You control your destiny when you work at PGT. How far do you want to go?

Come join our team! Apply on here or just give us a call at 513-453-6046 to set up an interview.

October LIL

A Newbie's Perspective

Sometimes it’s great to hear from someone with years of experience in the industry because they have been around. Other times, it’s better to hear from someone brand new…and that’s what we bring to you today!

Our October LIL is Jenny Wagoner who just started with us about a month ago! So let’s dive right in.

Jenny is not only brand new to PGT, but she is also brand new to the logistics world. Before taking a leap of faith on us, she worked in the medical field for the last eight years. After all those years, she felt it was time for a change and she liked what she saw at PGT. It seemed like the perfect fit even though she truly had no idea what to expect. All she knew was that it was something completely different than what she was used to.

When Kandra asked Jenny if she thought women and men are treated differently in the industry she replied, “it’s hard to say exactly as I don’t know how men are treated, but it is very clear that some people I talk to don’t take me seriously. I have to push a little harder than the guys in the office just to get the info I need and to reach the correct person.”

Jenny’s best advice to any women thinking about joining the industry is “just join us!” She feels very confident when she says, “there’s no reason this should be a male dominated industry. It’s a great way to step out of your shell as a woman and build your confidence.”

For the men out there, she asked for some compassion. “Be gentle with us. It doesn’t always come as natural to women because it has been dominated by men for so long.”

Her favorite part about being in logistics and at PGT is that it is a laid back atmosphere. “You decide how your day goes. The harder you work, the bigger the payout.”

She is very excited to keep climbing and we couldn’t be happier to be part of her success!

Kandra enjoying getting to know Jenny as they work through this interview!

PGT Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

No One Fights Alone

All of us at PGT want to help all those fighters, survivors, and warriors of breast cancer. Too many people are faced with this horrible disease every day, and we took it upon ourselves to help- no matter how small it may seem.


We are proud to say that our associates helped us raise over $1700 in one week- leading to 5 people getting a pie in the face! We are donating the money to the Pink Ribbon Girls and to a local woman currently battling breast cancer. Check out the video to see who got pied!
