In our Celebrating Team Tropical series, we commemorate our employees’ work anniversaries by getting to know them and their role at Tropical Foods better. Meet Donnie who is a truck driver out of our Charlotte headquarters. He celebrates 22 YEARS with the company this week!
I have worked for Tropical for 22 years. I drive Tropical trucks, making deliveries, loading and picking up products, maintaining the upkeep of my truck and communicating with customers.
I really enjoy communicating and working with customers.
I am proud of being able to withhold my job for 22 years, free of accidents.
It was very exciting when we got the delivery trucks. I remember when we were making deliveries in vans in the early days.
To be able to continue doing my job to the best of my abilities before I retire from Tropical Foods.
