Meet Kenneth Jones, CDL Delivery Driver in Baton Rouge, LA!
Kenneth was born and raised in Woodville, MS, “a little town just across the state line.” Seeking more career opportunities, Kenneth moved to Baton Rouge. He was an employee with RPM Services & Rentals, which Hugg & Hall acquired in 2016. After the acquisition, he chose to stay on. His favorite memory with Hugg & Hall was “seeing the first piece of new equipment roll onto the yard. I felt like business was about to take off.”
Kenneth has been a driver for more than 27 years and was always fascinated with big trucks and machines growing up. He enjoys keeping his truck in tip-top shape and receives a lot of compliments on it.
As a driver, Kenneth’s workday starts at 6:00 am. He said, “My duties consist of loading and unloading, delivering and picking up equipment. It’s always interesting to drive through Baton Rouge traffic.”
Kenneth told us that he loves being a driver. He said, “I don’t really consider my job work. The people are my favorite, because I know at some point in the day someone will make me laugh. I love this company and hope to retire from it. I’m in it for the long haul.”
Nick Duhon, Kenneth’s supervisor, said that he is “a great asset to this company. He has a can-do and a will-do attitude, and he is not averse to working late or on weekends. Even in the most challenging circumstances, he still maintains a smile on his face and is willing to assist colleagues with any challenges. Whether it is training a new driver or assisting with a difficult situation, he provides guidance.”
Outside of work, Kenneth loves spending time with his family, his three sons, and his friends. He’s a motorcyclist and fisherman in his spare time. He also loves singing in his church choir and when he’s not delivering equipment. “My coworkers may not know it, but I can carry a tune!”
We love hearing our employee’s favorite quotes. They give us a sense of what drives them towards excellence. Kenneth’s is drawn from a Japanese proverb: “If you get knocked down seven times, get up eight.”
