Katie Roberson is the Traffic Supervisor in Fort Worth, TX.
Katie began her career with Delta Steel in October of 2017 when she found a position as office administrator through an employment agency. She was looking for something different than her previous job as a manager at Insurance Auto Auctions. Katie started working in the Cedar Hill location and was responsible for maintaining and documenting safety paperwork, JSA(Job Safety Analysis) training, inventory receiving and adjustments, MTR(Mill Test Reports) and assist with answering the phones.
“I am a people person and I enjoy talking with people”
Soon enough she found herself splitting time between Cedar Hill and Fort Worth Delta Steel locations. One year later, Katie was offered a full-time position as Administrative Service Representative where she continued to support both Delta Steel locations.
In January of 2021, Katie took a role in Quality Control. This was a logical move for her because many of the duties she already performed were part of this position’s responsibilities. She did have to issue Non Conformance and corrective actions as part of her new role to ensure product quality before material ships to the customer. A little over year in this role and Katie took another step in her career. In March of 2022 she became the Traffic Supervisor for Delta Steel Fort Worth. Not only does she still serve some of the Quality Control responsibilities, she now handles many of the duties associated with the traffic department. Katie builds loads and works with existing carriers as well as setting up new ones.
Her 6 years with Delta Steel has covered a lot of ground and touched many different aspects of the business and made Katie a valuable asset to the success of our team. Katie has ambitions of continuing to grow with the company and lend her expertise to others through training.
“I want to be able to travel and train people in different areas of the company but mostly in operations and safety.”
Whether meeting Fort Worth’s tons goals, meeting with drivers, or keeping deliveries on track, all of it keeps her challenged every day. “As long as I can continue to grow I see myself retiring from here.”
Katie enjoys dancing and gambling(specifically slots and craps), basketball and football. She has 3 children and 3 grand children
” The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new.” – Socrates, father of Western Philosophy
Congratulations Katie! We look forward to what new and creative things you bring to our team in the many years to come!
