Faces of WFC


Shawn

Plant Manger; Frontier

When did you start here?

I was hired in 1991 and worked part-time in the afternoons and full-time during school breaks, as I was only a sophomore in high school then. After working at Paragon Potato Farms for two years, I worked at a window company before returning to Paragon in 1998.

What’s your background?

I grew up in Galloway, Wis., surrounded by potato farmers. My family and I worked for several farmers, and my grandfather grew small crops and owned a small dairy farm. I handled the irrigation for three farmers at once from 14 to 16 years old. I am very passionate about my job because my grandfather taught me to always give a 100 percent effort no matter what job you’re doing

Why did you come back to WFC?

The owners recognize hard work and aren’t afraid to say hi and ask how things are going at any time. Even though I was originally a part-time worker, I learned a lot because they gave me the opportunity to work in several different areas.

My typical day…

I do an inventory of the RPE and Paragon product and send an inventory report to the sales department. Then I check and compare all the trucks that are shipping out that day and make sure we are shipping the correct product to our customers and prioritizing which orders need to be packed when so that trucks are loaded quickly and able to stay on schedule.

Logistics; RPE, Inc.

When did you start here?

I started in our transportation department in Nov. 2004.

What is your background?

I started my first trucking job in Oklahoma, where I worked for five years at the trucking company owned by my husband’s aunt and uncle. I started on the switchboard, moved to their customer service department and was later in charge of their national accounts. Over the next few years, company closings, buyouts and a transfer brought me back to Wisconsin.

Why did you choose WFC?

I was very impressed by the family atmosphere. Every day is different and I’m always faced with new challenges.

My typical day at work…

starts with tracking down the locations of trucks and communicating any delays to the sales team. Throughout the day, I book loads and schedule appointments for loads on the brokerage side, as well as book trucks on the inbound and outbound potato and onion loads, answer numerous phone calls, give drivers directions and dispatch information, troubleshoot, quote rates and coordinate with our Idaho, California and Colorado teams.

Storage; Paragon Potato Farms


Nick Bisley

When did you start here?

I started in our agronomy department in March 2013.

What is your background?

I hold a bachelor’s degree in natural resources conservation and a master’s degree from a university in Sweden in strategic leadership toward sustainability. Before starting here, I was in the Peace Corps for two and a half years in Zambia, where I helped with aquaculture, or fish farming; small-scale farming practices such as cover crops and composting; and general health work.

Why did you choose WFC?

I was drawn to WFC because the owners all have a sense of corporate responsibility and are willing to take the appropriate steps to show they are a responsible company. When I work on sustainability issues for the farm and buildings, the owners are receptive and happy to listen.

A typical day at work…

doesn’t exist for me. My days at work can range from between being in the office all day to an entire day of field work and managing research plots. The potato industry puts an enormous amount of effort and research into developing new varieties.

Wendy

Customer Service Representative; RPE-Idaho


wendy

When did you start here?

I started in Aug. 2009 when Sun Valley Potatoes joined WFC and RPE.

What’s your background?

I attended the College of Southern Idaho, but I stopped taking classes when my husband and I were expecting our second child. I plan to finish because teaching is my dream job. At Sun Valley, I started as quality assurance inspector on the production floor, and was later promoted to food safety and security supervisor for the next two years. I also worked as transportation supervisor and moved into some sales. I moved to customer service when Sun Valley joined with RPE.

Why do you enjoy working at WFC?

Having such dedicated and polite coworkers makes my job easier. It’s been a great opportunity to meet and become friends with some very wonderful people.

A typical day at work…

revolves around customer orders. I enter and confirm orders, ship orders through and make any necessary changes to existing orders. I answer many phone calls throughout the day and make sure the customers get the assistance they need or get transferred to the right person in our office.
