Meet Wiliam

I have been trained to load on the spurs, pick and handle floor stock. I have also run the command station and served as the 3rd shift warehouse lead. I hope that my being able to do almost any position in the warehouse can take some of the load off of someone else and make a difference for Cardinal Health members.
