Our team is made up of a unique blend of talents. Among these talents, we have a few interns who are allowing us to invest in them and teach them more about business functions and the industry. We would like to introduce Derick Beltran, Quality Material Handling’s Newest Intern.
Derick is a California native from the city of Baldwin Park. He recently graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a degree in Business. He joined our team this fall as an intern. When asked about his internship, Derick explains:
“My main priority is to be the most absorbent sponge that has ever existed. I have the privilege to work with and learn from all the vital components that make QMH one of the best in its industry. For each week of my 3 month internship, I will be presented with a new journey, learning firsthand from each department manager. So far, my experience at QMH has been amazing. There is always something new to learn every day.”
Keep reading to learn more about Derick and the energetic, ready-to-learn attitude he brings to QMH every day.
What is an inspirational/motivational quote that you live by?
I have many favorite quotes. One of those is from the illustrious author known as C.S. Lewis:
“Don’t let your happiness depend on something you may lose.” – C.S. Lewis
This is such an impactful quote for me personally, reason being, that it reminds me to keep pushing forward toward my life goals no matter what occurs in the process of reaching those goals. Sometimes to arrive at accomplishing a goal we have to experience failure and loss along the way.
What is your favorite food?
I have so many favorite foods. There is no possible way to choose just one. I’m a fatty, I mean foodie.
What is something interesting/unique about you?
I used to swim competitively. I did it growing up all the way through college.
What are some of your favorite things to do outside of work?
Music has always been one of my greatest passions. I love learning knew instruments on my down time and also being involved in my church worship band.
What is the best part about working at QMH?
I really enjoy the atmosphere at QMH. Everyone has this “work hard, play hard” mentality. Everyone comes into work determined to perform better than the day before. It’s very apparent once you walk in through the QMH doors that QMH is not only in the business of providing quality materials, QMH is primarily in the business of providing quality employees to take excellent care of its valued clients.
