About Corey Bevis
I’m from Jonesboro, Arkansas. I graduated from Arkansas State University with a B.S. in mechanical engineering in 2016. When I’m not at work, I enjoy making music. I play guitar in my church’s worship band on Sundays. Occasionally, I play the French horn as a substitute for the Delta Symphony Orchestra.
What are your current responsibilities?
I handle nearly all engineering and manufacturing issues that may come up during second shift. I take care of rush orders, bills of materials (BOM) and pull list updates, change requests and drawing updates. I’m also responsible for assigning Factory Orders (FOs) to a design engineer. In addition, I review and answer questions about orders before they are released and make their way through the shop. I try to help with any other issues that the shop is having on any given FO or conveyor model.
What do you love about your job?
I enjoy the friendly work environment where I get to constantly learn and see new things.
What do you find most challenging in your position?
Since becoming a product engineer, I have received questions about many conveyor models that I am unfamiliar with. It has been a good learning experience.
Complete this statement: When I think of Hytrol, I think of a wonderful work environment that encourages the growth of individuals in order to accomplish goals.
What goals do you hope to achieve at Hytrol?
To use and further develop my skills as an engineer and a problem solver.
