02 Feb Getting to Know Zac and Hannah
Our Meet the Team series was a big hit. It turns out you like learning a little more about the committed folks who make up our logistics team here at AM Transport Services. Yes, you get to talk to them on the phone and trade emails, but you probably don’t have lots of time to ask them the sort of in-depth questions we feature here on the blog–like who prefers Skittles to M & Ms or what Dallas is reading lately or what Laura thinks about garden gnomes.
I was feeling a little sad that everyone has already answered all the Meet the Team questions when it hit me–we should do this again. There are so many interesting questions out there, and so many interesting AM Transport team members in the office. Why not start over? With new questions that will provide you with deeper insight into your favorite AMT folks.
This go around, we’re starting with our newer team members and doubling up for twice the fun. This week, it’s Zac Egleston and Hannah Thomas. Zac started here at AMT in July, and Hannah’s first day was about a month later.
What actor or actress would you want to play you if they ever made a movie about your life?
Hannah: Aubrey Plaza
Do you know all the words to any songs?
Zac: Too many to count. For some reason, my brain locks in song lyrics more quickly and accurately than it locks in ANYTHING else.
What fictional character would you most like to meet?
Zac: The Genie from Aladdin would be cool . . . I’ve got some work for him.
Hannah: I would love to spend some time with The Office cast.
What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done? And if you don’t want to talk about that, for kicks, you could describe the dumbest thing you’ve ever done.
Zac: I saved my little brother from drowning when I was around 6 or 7, and he was 3 or 4. I suppose that was pretty brave since I can’t swim and was just a kid.
Hannah: I’m not sure about brave . . ; however, I’ve got the dumb stuff down. Too many incidents to count.
Invisibility or flight? Which would you prefer and why?
Zac: Flight because I hate being stuck in cars for long periods of time.
Hannah: I think flight. It would be so relaxing to glide in the sky. (I would love to be able to go through Walmart invisible, though.)
If you could bring back any fashion trend, what would it be?
Zac: Top hats . . . top hats are cool.
Hannah: I’ve never been fashionable, so I don’t think this applies to me. I hope the current athleisure and oversized shirts trend stays in forever.
Cats or Dogs?
Zac: Dogs, but I’m pretty sure I’m mildly allergic.
Hannah: Dogs, dogs, dogs. I love all animals, though.
Zac: I think dogs are more versatile than cats. Cats are definitely more self-sufficient, but dogs can go places with you without it being strange.
Hannah: It is much harder to force your love upon a cat. Dogs are more compassionate, as well.
How do you like your eggs?
Zac: Scrambled with shredded cheese, or in an omelet with other things thrown in.
Hannah: Scrambled or medium depending on what I am eating them with.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
Zac: PB&J sandwiches with strawberry jelly.
What’s your favorite thing about working at AMT?
Zac: Solving problems and working with the team every day.
Hannah: Mostly seeing Moose every day. Honestly, the whole team makes coming to work every day exciting.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
Zac: Moving into my new house (still getting it finished up), and marrying my fiancee are both on the agenda for 2021.
Hannah: Watching my nephew grow. He will be walking and talking soon, and I am so excited!
