At National DCP, our highly motivated, diverse team enjoys coming to work every day - and we think you will too! From drivers and warehouse employees to specialists in technology, procurement and customer service, there are many ways to join our team. Want to learn more about what it’s like to work at National DCP? Meet Kevin, Marion, Jumbo and Alex:
Kevin Bailey - Transportation Driver
Years with NDCP: I have been an NDCP Transportation Driver working out of the Groveland, Florida distribution center since December 2013.
Best part about working here: I enjoy the freedom of work and the social interaction while servicing the stores. I’m originally from the Northeast, so I grew up enjoying Dunkin’ products. Now being able to play an integral role in sharing their products with others is an honor. America really does run on Dunkin’!
Most challenging aspect of your role: Safety is the top priority. Checking weather and traffic and getting the truck to each store safely is of the upmost importance. In addition, taking the time to learn new stores inside and out how to best service them is essential.
In your words, describe what you do each day: A day begins with a thorough inspection, making sure all paperwork is complete and the correct trailer is assigned by the manager. Checking the day’s weather and traffic along routes to ensure that orders are serviced on-time as well as in-full. After servicing the store, I prep the vehicle for the next driver. For our team it is all about respect and teamwork from top to bottom.
Jumbo Gupta, Applications Consultant
Years with NDCP: I’ve been here since they opened the Duluth office in September 2013. Hired on as a Portfolio Manager but transitioned to Applications Consultant.
Best part about working here: Every day provides different opportunities and challenges which makes the work interesting.
Most challenging aspect of your role: Time management. Within the IT department we can only survive through innovation, establishing new goals to improve our business processes while maintaining our current systems and applications.
In your words, describe what you do each day: With our complete technology refresh from Project Freshstart, my primary focus has been implementation, support and maintenance of our new systems/applications. This includes integration between Ariba (PO/Invoice automation and Sourcing and Contracts Management), SAP-ECC and the Manhattan WMS and TLM systems. I also provide development and support for our Cognos Reporting application that provides visibility into the Manhattan applications. Beyond that I look to streamlining processes and finding areas for continuous improvement through the use of technology so we can better support our internal and external customers.
Alex Pistoia, Warehouse Selector
Years you have been with NDCP: I joined the company a year ago as a Warehouse selector in the Colonie, NY Distribution Center.
Best part about working here: The operations team has been extremely nice, helpful and very encouraging. People value creating a great work environment.
Most challenging aspect of your role: I believe the most challenging part of being a Selector being consistent and meeting the daily production requirements.
In your words, describe what you do each day: I am responsible for accurately selecting the customers’ orders for next day delivery. Breaking the shift up into intervals, two-hour windows to be more specific, I try and complete a minimum of five pallets in each period and use this to set a daily goal for myself.
