Productive, self-paced work environment. Very fulfilling.
Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee) – Elkin, NC – August 15, 2017
I started working at Weyerhaeuser in Elkin, NC on 02/08/1988. My wife is a teacher with Yadkin County Schools so I got my Class B CDL with passenger endorsement to drive field trips and such and then moved in to substitute driver position, all while still working at Weyerhaeuser. In 2010, with the downturn in the economy and my firefighting and 1st Responder experience, I decided to go to Surry Community College to become a Paramedic. I left Weyerhaeuser in February 2011 and worked full time at Yadkin County EMS. I went back to Weyerhaeuser full time in February 2012 to same job and employment status as when I left. They really like my work and attention to detail. I continued to work at Yadkin EMS for 4 more years until the stress of sickness, death started causing sleepless nights. I've been driving a dump truck for Ace Grading on a part time basis for the past 6 months but it is on an as needed basis.
