She has the ability to prioritize, organize, and accomplish multiple tasks simultaneously. Not to forget, she is also technically competent and has the critical skills necessary to ensure nothing will be left undone. She has adapted to work abnormal hours when necessary to make sure all is up to par in the shipping and receiving department. Carol consistently demonstrates ethical behavior by operating equally and honestly in all matters. Her continuous efforts to improve Shipping, Receiving, and cast plate shipping operations, is the reason why she deserves to be June’s Employee of the Month. Congrats Carol!
