This month, we focus on one of our warehouse employees, Alex Knight. If you’ve ordered something from us online before, chances are Alex has touched it. That’s because he is our Receiving and Inventory Manager at the warehouse and it’s his responsibility to check over each and every product that is delivered before adding it into our inventory.
Alex joined ACK back in February of this year because of his passion for the outdoors. He’s big into cycling with both a fixed gear and BMX bike and also enjoys camping. He hails from nearby Houston where he graduated from MediaTech Institute with a degree in Audio Engineering. When he’s not enjoying the outdoors, he experiments with a studio set at home and will occasionally put his ability to play the guitar, bass, drums and piano to use as he’s been a part of several bands.
Alex says he’s really enjoyed his time at ACK, especially in his relatively new leadership role. Originally part of the receiving team as an associate, Alex suffered a broken arm several months back and wasn’t able to lift heavy objects. As a result, he found himself taking on more logistical tasks and naturally grew into the position he has today. He took on the new responsibilities three months back during our busiest season of the year (summer) and already has a long list of accomplishments under his belt. In his own words, Alex says the position has been challenging but also very satisfying, and that he’s got a huge appetite to take on more.
His favorite aspect of the job? Getting to see every product that comes into our warehouse. We’re constantly adding new gear and toys and Alex gets a firsthand view of it all. He says that if he could just get one of each product he received into the ACK inventory, he’d be a very happy man.
