No thanks, I don't want to prevent hand injuries.
At Superior Glove we have some outstanding employees, so we decided to lift the veil and introduce our readers to the people that make us who we are. We choose to feature those outstanding employees with a blog dedicated to them, called the Employee Spotlight.
Meet our Business Development Team Lead, Jill.
Jill has been working for Superior Glove for a year and a half. She is unbelievably passionate about her job, she’s always so excited and loves coming to work every day. She goes above and beyond for our customers and making sure that they get the glove samples they need.
I tell my grandson that I help keep people safe. I keep Grandpa’s hands from getting cut, I keep Daddy’s hands from getting stuck, and I keep Great-Grandpa’s hands from getting hurt.
He understands because he has his own and won’t work outside in the garden without his gloves, he has to have them on.
My team and I do research to make sure we are suggesting the best products for our customers. The gloves that they might have requested might not be the right glove for the job, so we help them make the right decision and get them the sample they need. It changes day-to-day, I love helping my team with glove issues.
The people. I’m happy every morning to come to work and to have such great people to work with, to help people figure out what they need.
Helping other people find the product that they need inspires me. Many customers will come to us and say this is the glove I want, and in the end, we end up suggesting an entirely different glove for the job, which actually works better for the type of work they’re doing.
I think what everyone does here is fantastic, but I couldn’t change jobs. I love mine too much. We’re a big family, and it would be difficult for me to leave my group. I love my job, and it was fate that I ended up where I am today. I don’t plan on switching jobs in the future, and I believe this is the last job I’ll work.
I was carrying 6-by-9 stones, and my hand slipped off the rock and it landed on my finger. My finger looked like Fred Flintstone’s. I had to drain the fluid to release the pressure. It was so painful. I couldn’t take time off, I tried to modify my duties, and there were people waiting for their projects to get done. There was a schedule, and I needed try to stick to it. From then on, I always wore gloves.
I have so many, what I love about this job is that I get to talk to people from all over. It’s great when they tell me that I have an accent when to me they have an accent and call me ma’am.
The Devil’s Club phone call was the most memorable and I went home, so happy every day that week. We tried so hard to get this man qualified for a glove to keep him safe. He lives in Alaska and shipping isn’t cheap, so we worked with the distributors to get him the glove he needed to be protected. It all worked out, and we got him the right protection. Getting the feedback from him, and knowing that he did not have to go back to the doctor or the hospital, made me feel great because I knew I was keeping him safe.
That has got to be the toughest question. I have two favorites, the S13KGPN. It has a high cut-resistance, the palm coating adds for extra grip, it’s great for landscaping. I love all our winter gloves too, and they’re super handy and super warm. The Clutch Gear® gloves are great because they don’t wear out quick, my father has a pair, and they took a year to wear through.
At work, I seem to walk out of my cubicle, and I’m on a mission, you can see it on my face. Then I’ll get two or three feet away and completely forget. So I’ll have to go back and slink down and figure out where I was going and why I was going there.
I am very meticulous and organized. Everything has its place, and in my wallet, I have everything right where it should be. After our National Sales Meeting, I went grocery shopping with my husband and couldn’t find my VISA card. I ran to the bank and had to verify my identity to get cash.
As I’m putting my cash in my wallet, what do I find? My VISA card. So I ran back to the grocery store and my husband was waiting with all our groceries, and I sheepishly pull out my card, and he just laughs at me. I was exhausted, and we had a good laugh about everything.
Jill, you are an inspiration. We are thankful for your cheery disposition every day, and that you go above and beyond for our customers and your team. Thank you.
