The Uncommon Life

Uncommon Personalities: Meet Brent Addison

September 6, 2013
UncommonGoods Warehouse Team Lead Brent Addison
Brent Addison, UncommonGoods Inbound Warehouse Team Lead

My hometown is…
Berwick, Pennsylvania

My favorite process in the UncommonGoods warehouse is…
Using Sketchup to 3D model aspects of the warehouse.

I’m inspired by…
Carl H. Whitenight (my Grandfather).

The best gift anyone has given me was…
Seeing the Ramones live on their final tour.

An uncommon fact about me…
I once owned a 1973 Cadillac Hearse.

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
At a show, working with metal, or juggling.

The word that best describes me…
Awesome!!

Working at UncommonGoods, I’ve learned…
Team work. I’ve never worked anywhere that encourages team work as much as we do at UG. We work hard together to get things done.

Would you rather … Spend 1,000 hours creating a metal art masterpiece or listen to 1,000 hours’ worth of metal music consecutively (even in your sleep)?
I think this is a trick question because I listen to metal music while working with metal!

Uncommon Personalities: Meet Lee Griffin

Operations Manager Lee Griffin

Lee Griffin, UncommonGoods Senior Manager – Operations
My hometown is…
Dallas, PA

I chose to go into warehouse operations because…
The type of work that we do in the warehouse naturally fits my personality. I like to solve problems, organize, and constantly improve. I thrive on variety, challenges and being in the action. I’d be hard-pressed to find an environment better suited to me.

I’m inspired by…
The opportunity to push my limitations. And the seemingly boundless capacity for growth and achievement in the people I see here every day.

My favorite interaction with a UG team member has been…
Extending offer letters to my team. The most rewarding part of what I do is seeing the satisfaction and security that they get from their work here.

An uncommon fact about me…
I learned to read music before I learned to read English. It took me a while to understand why “flat” isn’t spelled with a “b”…

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
Spending time with my lovely wife, experiencing something new – new music to listen to or play, new food to try, new places to visit.

The word that best describes me…
At this moment? “Stumped.”

Working at UncommonGoods I’ve learned…
A ton. Apart from a host of technical skills, I’ve learned that we (as individuals and as teams) have far greater potential than we think.

If you could teleport to another location for 24 hours with no limitations, where would you go and what would you do?
The heart of the Amazon Rainforest. I’d get lost – just go explore and look for something no one has ever seen before.
