82 G.I. JOBS | FEBRUARY 2017 | GIJOBS.COM Tell us about the US Foods Supply Chain Management Development Program. It's a two-year, accelerated entry-level leadership development program. We engage in both classroom and on-the-job training to further develop supply chain systems knowledge while managing daily USF supply chain department operations in the areas of inbound warehouse, outbound warehouse and transportation. What was your Navy job? I was an operations specialist. We ensured safe navigation of the ship by using radars and charts to ensure we were keeping a safe distance from other ships and safely navigating through open waters. How well has your Navy leadership training transferred to US Foods? My training in the Navy helped me develop a thick skin and afforded me the ability to excel under pressure. My training has helped tremendously when it comes to supervising a diverse group of people. What hours/days do you typically work? We work a variety of shifts, but currently I am working on the night warehouse portion of training, so typically I work Sunday- Thursday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. What military skill do you use the most? Teamwork. Being in the warehouse I have learned that it takes every single one of us for our warehouse to be successful. That is the most valuable skill to possess, as a manager, because without my employees' support, I can't be successful. Would you recommend this industry to other veterans? Yes. I believe that the food service industry is perfect for veterans. There are many great opportunities throughout the United States, and the industry is continuing to grow.
