Where do you live? Brockton, MA
How long have you worked at Horizon Beverage?
30 years. I’ve grown up with the company. I came here straight out of college, and worked in the original Brockton facility. In the old days, we were called “lumpers” and we used to move everything by 2-wheelers, but now we are in a state-of-the-art facility.
Why did you choose to work here?
I can’t imagine working anywhere else. This is a family affair, run by generations of two families – the Epsteins and the Rubensteins – and they treat their employees like family, too.
What do you like about working at Horizon Beverage?
I have a great job and great benefits. I have been able to put four kids through college working here. We work hard, but have fun, too. It’s a great atmosphere and I have learned so much with all of the new technology we employ in the warehouse, such as the voice activated systems I work with.
