We Are Only as Strong as Our Team Members

As we mentioned in our last employee spotlight, MetroGistics takes great pride in our employees. They are the cream of the crop and not only have impeccable customer service skills, but also the drive to ensure our company’s success. Today we wanted to shine the spotlight on Michelle Burton, Greg Schutte and Jesse Chilton.

Michelle Burton, our information compliance coordinator, has worked with us for a year-and-a-half and is in charge of entering orders, setting up carriers, and keeping carrier profiles updated. In addition to this, she also runs checks to make sure the carriers are in compliance with our standards, and tries to spot and correct any discrepancies in order entries.

Although her job may sound taxing, she insists that the company atmosphere is what keeps her going. “I work with a fun group of people,” she said, “we work together as a team and keep the climate of the office very light. We work hard and still are able to have a fun time while doing it.” If given only three words to describe Michelle, her co-workers would use quiet, focused and quick — three attributes that are definitely welcome in our workplace.

Greg Schutte, our sales specialist, has been with us since 2010 and manages all sales orders. Greg loves being part of the MetroGistics team and admires the company’s methods in becoming successful. He said, “We strive to be the best transportation company. This allows me to push the envelope for my customers to have the best service in the industry. I am glad to be a part of a team I believe in and can count on every day.”

Dedication to one’s company is an attribute that is valued by any employer. His co-workers would use the words honest, hard-working and reliable to describe Greg. When he isn’t hard at work, he spends his spare time with family and friends. He said, “My kids are my best friends, so most of my spare time is spent with them. I also have a wonderful woman in my life that I enjoy spending time with.”

Jesse Chilton, our dispatch operations supervisor, joined our team two-and-a-half years ago and is involved in the everyday operations of the dispatch department. In addition, he oversees our major dealer accounts. Jesse appreciates the flexibility that we offer our employees, so he has plenty of time to do what he loves: spending time with his family and coaching soccer.

“It’s a great place to work,” he says, “MetroGistics has a gym inside the office along with a personal trainer. The company believes in keeping their employees healthy and happy.” Jesse’s co-workers appreciate his dependability, honesty and great work ethic.

As you can see, our employees truly enjoy each other’s company and take great pride in their work.
