We love our jobs here at GiftTree! We work hard, we play hard, and we’re a family. There are a lot of people behind the scenes who work tirelessly and dedicate themselves to make GiftTree the great place it is. In respect to our amazing team, we’ve decided to start the Featured Employee blog. This way, you can get to know some of the awesome GiftTree family members.
Our very first Featured Employee is Ron Noble. Ron sat down with us for a little Q&A session:

Describe life at GiftTree in 3 words or less
Exciting, Busy and Relaxing (depending on time of year)
Here is why we love Ron – Ron is a very good lift driver. He’s safe, conscientious and efficient. He works hard and enjoys working at GiftTree and it shows. He’s helpful, funny and a valuable member of our warehouse team. We manufacture a multitude of gift baskets each month and pulling the inventory is the first step of the physical process. It’s important that we have a strong employee in that position. During the holiday season, Ron’s area has up to 6 employees and works two shifts, so it becomes quite hectic. Ron does an outstanding job, day in and day out, of pulling product and keeping the pace. It can be a very tough job, and Ron does it exceedingly well. We enjoy Ron and value him greatly as a GiftTree employee!
