Nearly two decades ago, Gary Radziak began his career at Origlio Beverage as a driver’s helper. From there, he worked as an order picker on the night shift for six years before becoming a Delivery Service Representative (DSR), a position he has held for nine years. Radziak services Philadelphia and the surrounding counties and feels that in order to provide the best service to his customers, “it’s important to establish a mutual respect and understand each other’s expectations for a smooth and seamless delivery.”
What does it take to be a top-notch DSR? It’s simple. I just ask myself, “WWSLD?” What Would Steve LoPresti (a retired Origlio DSR) Do? He’s someone I really looked up to.
What do you like most about your job and what do you find most challenging? I enjoy the relationships I have with my customers, but the ever-changing traffic conditions out on the road, tricky parking situations and navigating a tractor trailer around a crowded Chick-fil-A parking lot at lunch time make my job challenging.
What advice would you give a new DSR? Be patient and respectful.
What are your favorite summer activities? Spontaneous bar crawls in the city, Bedlam at the Bank and family vacations in the Outer Banks.
The last TV show you binged was… Breaking Bad.
Your favorite movie of all time is… Point Break.
If you had your own talk show, name three people, past or present, that you’d like to interview. Special Agent Johnny Utah, Angelo Pappas and Bodhi.
What’s on your bucket list? Shark cage diving, vacationing in the Maldives and attending the Talladega 500.
If you could be anywhere, drinking any adult beverage… I’d be in Clearwater Beach, Florida after a Phillies ‘W’ with an ice-cold Corona in hand.
