Before she started her career with Recology, Amanda held a variety of roles, including Certified Medical Technician and Collections Agent with a bank. She started her career with Recology in 2003, and has since held several positions with the company.
Amanda started as a Customer Service Representative, which she held for about a year before transferring to the Information Systems Department. Due to company growth in 2010, Recology combined Customer Service and Information Systems, and she soon became Supervisor of both departments. A few years later she was interested in operations, and transferred to the McMinnville Recycling Facility as the Operations Supervisor. She also became certified as the fork lift trainer. In 2015, she accepted what is now her current role as Customer Service and Office Manager, where she oversees four departments (Data Quality, Customer Service, Dispatch, and Scale Attendants).
She says, “In the last 15 years, I raised my kids while working here, and have formed lifelong friendships. The people I work with would make this a difficult job to give up. Not to mention that I like the daily challenges and the constant changes.”
