29 Oct Meet the Team: Laine Slover
Laine Slover is the newest member of the AM Transport family. He’s fresh out of the Army, and we’re excited to welcome him. It won’t be long before you’ll be talking to Laine on the phone, but here’s a chance to get to know him first.
Beer: Not sure I can choose an actual favorite, but I do enjoy a Sam Adams Cold Snap.
Skittles or M & Ms: Skittles
Power Ranger: Red
Podcast: Joe Rogan
Football: Rams (football is my favorite sport)
Music: My favorite style of music is probably bluegrass or old country. But my playlist is all over the place. One second we could be listening to a country song and the next second it would be Cold Play.

If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be?
What do you think about when you are alone in the car?
I have all of my deep thinking sessions in my truck, whereas other people have theirs in the shower.
How long have you been in transportation? How did you end up working for AMT?
This is my first time in transportation. My cousin, Zac, sent me a link and told me he thought I’d be a good fit, so I applied.
What do you do at AMT?
I’m training now, but eventually I will be a carrier representative.
What apps, gadgets, etc. can you not live without at work?
I guess I can’t really say much for this job yet, but in the Army it was probably my Garmin watch.
If someone gifted you an elephant, what would you do with it?
Give it to my sister. She’s obsessed with elephants.
Are you married? Any kids?
What are your thoughts on garden gnomes?
Honestly, I’ve never even actually seen one in real life . . .
Best Christmas gift you ever received? Given?
Received: Grandpa’s old gun. Given: Record player.
So what’s the funniest thing that’s happened to you lately?
Well, a few weeks ago, I was carrying a gallon of milk inside and my dog tripped me. Thinking only of saving the milk so it didn’t bust, I managed to catch myself from falling, but kept stumbling. It seemed like I was stumbling forever, but in reality it was probably just a few seconds. I finally stopped stumbling and managed to put the milk in the fridge. As I was walking back into the hall, I tripped over the shoe I had just taken off and I fell down. I layed there for like five minutes.
How do you recharge after a long day?
Gym, food, sleep.
Reading anything good lately?
I’m not currently reading anything. I did recently order a book recommended to me by a friend. It’s called 101 Questions You Need to Ask in Your Twenties by Paul Angone.
What’s your superpower?
If needed, I can literally sleep anywhere, including standing up.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
Always set goals for yourself and never stop improving.
