An ATS leader is defined as anyone who inspires, guides and influences others in our business. While ATS leaders have a wide variation in leadership experience, all believe deeply in continuous improvement, including the ongoing development of leadership capabilities and employee competencies. ATS leaders look to the future but know how to lead a team to quickly get the right things done the right way. ATS leaders are trusted and transparent — people at work and in their communities look to them for support and guidance.

Our ATS leaders are accountable for their actions and drive accountability to our priorities and goals through clarity of what needs to be done and why. They communicate proactively and regularly with each other and with employees at all levels.

Vic G., Site Manager

Vic G.

Site Manager

What have you done to help you get promoted

I shadowed a leader who was gifted in bringing his team up with him. On-the-job learning, especially on WEM, and trying new things, like “Doc Palmer’s Maintenance Planning & Scheduling Handbook.”

What advice would you give others at ATS?

Mentor. You see team members who outperform on every challenge they have before them. As you move along, elevate your team alongside you.

What's next for you?

Achieve FMS OS Gold certification for my site, become a Safety Trained Supervisor, and get promoted to a Senior Site Manager.

Jay D.

Regional Planner/Scheduler

What have you done to help you get promoted

I am extremely passionate about the Planning/scheduling role and process. I thoroughly enjoy being able to mentor new Planners, which has allowed me to share my knowledge with new, young talent. Volunteering to pilot new programs gave me and my site the ability to be a part of driving positive cultural change. Being part of a team that helps drive efficiency and standardization motivates me to come to work every day.

What advice would you give others at ATS?

Be passionate about what you do and how you do it. Show initiative and take ownership. Be willing to help develop your team by sharing your knowledge and past experiences.

Jason M.

Site Supervisor Caterpillar

What have you done to help you get promoted

I took all the training I could on ToolingU for leadership and management and filled in for my Supervisor whenever he was out.

What advice would you give others at ATS?

Do not be afraid to try new things. No matter what you’re doing, always try and get a little better each day.

What's next for you?

Concentrate on my new responsibilities and help others move up in their careers.
