Meet Evelyn Padilla
How did you start in The Fastener Industry?
My adventure with the fastener industry started not too long ago. I was hired at Brighton-Best International November 2017 as a Shipping Manger, I would print the sales order and distribute them amongst the departments. But since my time with BBI, I have grown and expanded my knowledge on how a company comes to be. I have jumped from shipping, receiving containers, forklifts, packaging and fixing our inventory. I am a “back-up” for nearly every warehouse department, I also help prepare material and schedule shipments to our international branches. I am still a “newbie” to this industry, but with the amazing team here and with other fellow WIFI members I will be able to learn from each and every one of you.
What is one accomplishment in your present job are you most proud of?
Well I would say the one accomplishment that I am the most proud of is my ability to tackle tasks from start to finish. I have multiple tasks throughout the day whether its hopping on the forklift and fixing/correcting any issues we have with our inventory, covering a department or doing a project with the operations team. It’s knowing that people can count on me to get a job done without hesitation. I am proud that I am always wanting to learn and grow with the company.
What is one favorite thing about your job?
