Meet: Jacob Alcorn
Our Little Rock office is getting increasingly busy, especially with residential deliveries. Part of managing our part of the supply chain is to have someone at the helm handling administrative duties and dispatching our drivers.
As of July this year, Jacob Alcorn was that person in our Little Rock office.
“I do a little bit of everything. Mostly I handle all the paperwork with the Little Rock office, as well as organizing the dock and doing inventories,” Jacob said.
Before joining our team, Jacob worked at Tropical Smoothie for six years. He is also a member of the Arkansas National Guard.
We asked Jacob how his new job differs from his previous experience and what he likes most about his new role.
“The main difference to me is the paperwork. This is the first job I have obtained that had paperwork and work done over the computer this much, but everyone helped me out a lot to become more familiar with it,” he said. “I enjoy the people here. Everyone is really helpful whenever you need them. It’s just overall a great environment.”
We also asked Jacob what he enjoys doing in his free time. “My spare time consists of the gym, floating the river, or sleeping,” he said.
We are excited to have Jacob as part of our team! We continue to hire drivers at both our Little Rock and Northwest Arkansas locations, especially as the busy holiday delivery season approaches.
