Operations Supervisor, J. B. Hunt Final Mile Texas A&M University Ag Systems Management, B.S., 2016 Hometown: Lorena, Texas Enjoys: Golf, concerts, and Mack, my dachshund Maneuvering the maze of career fairs, I found that recruiters are fascinated with ASM. I received multiple job offers almost a year before I graduated. I thank ASM for that. The ASM degree is unlike any other. You study a diversity of subjects that will help you excel in many jobs. In my graduating class, I was one of only four women, but we all saw this as an advantage. The work isn’t just for guys. Companies are looking for ASM-experienced women, too. I found J.B. Hunt at a career fair at Texas A&M—it was the first company I visited and the first to offer me a job. J.B. Hunt offers training programs for the fast track to management and provides a full orientation program before your start date. As an operations supervisor, I oversee drivers and other employees on the Whirlpool Account at J.B. Hunt Final Mile. I route, pre-plan, and help drivers complete their routes safely with trip sheets and truck management. I speak with customers to schedule product delivery and ensure that all product is loaded on trucks. Payroll, sourcing employees through temporary services, managing warehouse inventory, and customer service are daily operations for me. I also learned how to manage the warehouse in case a supervisor was out. I love my job, and for me, it all began at a career fair!
