Hey, Summer Camp Folks!
Meet our Assistant Shipping Manager at Everything Summer Camp, Mike. The Shipping Department is an incredibly busy place (especially this time of year), but Mike helps keep the warehouse a fluid, well-orchestrated production that achieves its role daily with flying colors.
Rolling up his sleeves along with the Shipping crew, Mike passes his days printing orders, picking the products of those orders, packing the orders and boxing them up, tagging them with shipping labels, and seeing them off by loading all the boxes into the back of a FedEx truck. It’s a demanding job but, luckily—being a serious workhorse—Mike is able to keep up pretty well.
In fact, Mike’s job can get so hectic and so varied, that boxing has become his new favorite task in Shipping. “Nobody else likes it,” he told me. But he’s found a quiet tranquility in the repetitive, mindless routine. This sits well with the Shipping crew as well as Mike—more boxing for him!
Proud of his indomitable work ethic—as he should be—Mike gloated that in the 3 years that he’s been working at Everything Summer Camp, he hasn’t missed a single day! Previously, before holding his current position in Shipping, Mike worked in our Camp Trunk Production Department where he cut steel, glued panels, and carried out general maintenance for the workspace and machinery.
Even before that, Mike worked in the shipping department for Strek-O-Doors. “I’ve been in shipping most my life,” he said. “I enjoy the work. I like running forklifts and stuff like that.” Coinciding with his interest in operating machinery at work, Mike has a real passion for ATVs. He couldn’t hide the joy on his face as he told about the brand new one he just acquired.
He and his three boys—Clint, Brent, and Harley-Daniel—have all had countless rides on Mike’s four-wheeler gems! While his wife doesn’t enjoy the rides nearly as much, she loves their family outings. When their boys were less grown up, Mike used to go camping every weekend back when “I had my boat and I’d catch massive bass!”
When you work hard, you gotta play hard! Thanks to Mike and his managerial assistance with the crew in our Shipping Department, you’re sure to get your quality camp gear from Everything Summer Camp on time! And, as always, thanks for reading!
