Shop Employee of the Month (Night Shift) – July 2017
Jul 16, 2017

Donald Hernandez

Given the renewed focus on good housekeeping – maintaining a clean, safe work environment – at Western Window Systems, it’s imperative that everyone takes responsibility for doing so.

You don’t need to tell Donald Hernandez twice, though. In addition to being a stellar employee who gets the job done and done right while keeping a great attitude, Donald keeps shop safe for both the night shift crew and preps it nicely for those coming in during the daytime.

“Donald’s a great role model,” says multi-slide frame manager Joey Morales. “He completes a high number of units daily without error. And he practices safe work habits and uses the proper PPE required for the job.”

Donald, who started with the company in February 2012, is especially adept and foreseeing issues that might face the incoming day shift, often leaving notes for the day-side lead and manager. It’s that kind of conscientiousness that is invaluable to a department head.

“He always lends a helping hand,” says Morales. “Plus, he’s punctual and hardly ever misses a day of work.”

And about productivity, Morales says Donald always gives more than 100 percent.

“He sometimes completes more units than my day shift team,” says Morales. “And with fewer people.”

Congratulations to Donald Hernandez, Western Window Systems’ night shop employee of the month for July.
