Service Manager, Mundelein, IL

Employed with Reinders since January 2010

A day in the life of my position includes checking daily reports, going over daily operations, managing inventory and processes, answering customer inquiries, managing billing and daily paperwork, and working with new ERP system for the Service Department. The customers, both internal and external make me enjoy my job at Reinders. We partner together daily and have developed many excellent working relationships that work for all parties involved. This is a team effort. We work together, we learn together and grow together. Recently there have been several projects on which I have worked. We are customer based and to attain those results I have spent more time educating and mentoring new staff members. Watching staff learn and grow with customer relationships and behind the scenes knowledge is my favorite on going project. Recently I have been involved in a new service management program to assist with the daily operations of our Service Department. We focus as a team to learn and grow in our positions daily. Most customer interactions are discussed and not just mentored by one person, but the team to learn and grow. The culture at Reinders is family orientated, hard workers, and they have the “this is it” mentality.
