Q&As with Lori Yuska
Lori, you’ve been at AHT since 2001. Tell us about the different roles you’ve held.
Initially, I was hired to help answer phones in the morning and assist in expediting in the afternoon at our MidPort facility. Within six months, I was also helping the shipping department at the Burton facility and assisting Sales. A couple months later, I became the expedite coordinator at Burton and still am today!
(Editors Note: Lori is a member of our AHT 15+ Club. See who else is here.)
Explain what a typical day looks like for you as Expediting Coordinator at our Burton Ave. location.
Busy, busy, busy! In addition to shipping orders, creating bill of ladings and scheduling shipments, I also assist customers with getting status updates on their orders, relaying information to the proper departments, etc. When I can, I will also help in the receiving department getting orders checked in for processing.
When you’re not working, how do you like to spend your free time?
In the summer, my husband & I like to take walks, go to antique/flea markets and attend as many outdoor festivals as we can.
