Yosvani, Warehouse Manager
From Dock Hand to Warehouse Manager
Responsible for the warehouse’s profit and loss (P&L), operations, and worker safety, Yosvani has worked for DB Schenker since 2007. “I had no industry experience and joined as a temporary worker,” he recalled.
Prior to joining the DB Schenker team, Yosvani was attending college and working part-time at a local supermarket. He calls his move to DB Schenker a “career breakthrough,” and said it gave him the opportunity to not only expand his own knowledge, but also become a project lead, supervisor, and a warehouse manager.
What’s Next for Yosvani?
When Yosvani ponders the reasons why he enjoys working for DB Schenker, he said the biggest pluses include the respect that the company pays to its employees in the shape of benefits, recognition, and opportunities.
“DB Schenker also embraces diversity and promotes it quite well within our organization,” added Yosvani, who has borrowed a few pages from his employer’s diversity approach.
Diversity has helped me to recognize and respect ‘ways of being’ that are not necessarily my own.
A fitness buff who goes to the gym daily and who also enjoys working on and repairing cars, Yosvani said he’s ready for whatever lies around the next corner.
“I can’t predict what’s ahead, but I can assure you that I’m prepared for whatever comes my way — both in terms of the targets that I set for myself and those that DB Schenker has prepared for me,” he concluded. “In the meantime, I’m always working to attain good balance between work and personal life to make sure I’m always available for my family.”
