We’re Celebrating our Adafruit Team this #LaborDay – Jarad talks Gathering and Shipping Audits!
One of our Team Leads, Jarad, wears two hats here at Adafruit. See below for his breakdown on how he helps make sure your package gets to you at the right location and with all the right goodies:
Hello, my name is Jarad, and here at Adafruit Industries I play a double role as a UPS shipping auditor and as a Lead Gatherer.
During my time as a UPS shipping auditor I regularly comb through shipping data to ensure its integrity. Because Adafruit ships more packages out of SoHo than any other SoHo based company in NYC, this process is integral to ensuring our goods get to you quickly and without problems.
During my time as a Lead Gatherer I am responsible for filling invoice orders, maintaining stock, and ensuring that all orders leave the premises complete and on-time.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
