I hope you all enjoyed learning more about Rahmie last week! Today, I introduce you to Jen Keffer. Jen wears a ton of hats at Sonic (as you'll see below), so she has definitely had her hand in your projects whether you knew it or not. We're super grateful to have her!
How long have you been working at Sonic Promos?
I've been with Sonic for just over a year.
What role(s) do you play here?
According to my business cards, I am the Operations & Logistics Guru here at Sonic. I create and manage our clients' online company stores, and I handle fulfillment projects, including our clients' holiday/gift wrapping needs. I'm also in charge of logistics and shipping, and I'm Debbie's second-in-command when it comes to CSR duties. I also wear the hats of Special Events Coordinator (I plan all of the fun office parties!) and Office Supplies Manager (I order all our office supplies and the ever-important caffeine). Basically, if it's thrown to me, I make it happen!
Best part of the job?
Handling fulfillment projects for the team. They are crazy sometimes, but I really enjoy doing them- the planning and logistics, even jumping in to help pack or haul boxes to the UPS truck. I've enjoyed taking on this role here at Sonic. Also, the ability to work from home is wonderful. I'm not from this area, and most of my family is back home in Texas. It's great to be able to leave for a week or two, spend time with the family, and still get my job done.
Worst part of the job?
The commute. I don't live very close to the office and there are days when traffic on the Beltway is a nightmare. Thank goodness for my awesome carpool schedule with Mallory!
What's your favorite kind of project to work on?
Anything that gets me away from my desk and involves me running around. It's part of the reason I enjoy handling fulfillment projects so much. I'm not much of a desk person.
What do your coworkers love to tease you about?
Not wearing shoes in the office, being a klutz (I'm always walking into walls and tripping over things), and being strongly anti-artificial sweeteners (I hate when my coworkers ask me to buy Splenda or Sweet 'N Low- that stuff will kill you!).
