Meet the team | Warehouse

By Victoria Cowan, 15 November 2021

In this week’s meet-the-team we’d like to introduce you to a number of our colleagues from the My Jewellery warehouse. Our powerhouse warehouse workers spend the day processing all of the orders and returns. The team keeps growing to keep up with all the many orders they get. Interested? Read more about them in this blog!

Team member Manja Elie
Position: Supervisor warehouse

How long have you been working at My Jewellery?
Since July 2020, so more than a year.

What are some of your daily tasks?
I’m responsible for the entire warehouse. Think: scheduling, stocks, improving processes, managing team leads etc. Besides that I also make sure all of the orders are sent off on time to our customers & boutiques.

What does an average day look like for you?
In the mornings I start by checking my emails. During the day I meet with team leads to discuss how the processes are going, meetings with keyholders at My Jewellery, coordinate processes, check our hours registration and chat with team members. I also check throughout the day whether we’re meeting the cut-off criteria (ordered before 20.00, same day postage).

What do you enjoy about your job?
Every day is different at the warehouse. I love producing great results with the whole team. I’m super proud when we’re completely on top of all our orders and the warehouse looks neat and orderly, and our stocks have all been maintained properly. 

What’s been your most fun moment at the warehouse?
 Black Friday! We proved with teamwork and good preparations we could achieve really great things.


Team member Joris Kroese
Position: Logistics member

How long have you been working at My Jewellery?
I’ve been at My Jewellery for a year.  

What are some of your daily tasks?
As a member of the logistics team you perform lots of different tasks in the My Jewellery warehouse. From order picking, wrapping, restocking POS and our boutiques, to processing returns. Personally, I’m usually found operating the Reach truck and replenishing the pick zone.

What does an average day look like for you?
During early shifts we start by stock taking. After that the team leads hand out the tasks, I usually get a list of products that need to be replenished. I take the reach truck from it’s charging station and start by getting all of the pallets out of the bulk so I can grab all the products that need to be replenished. It often happens that order pickers need products from the bulk, in which case I drive along with them and help where needed. I also help anyone else who needs anything that requires the reach truck. 

What do you enjoy about your job?
The most fun part about working at the warehouse are obviously the colleagues. We have a great time together which makes work really enjoyable! Personally, I love do replenishment the most. My Jewellery is a really fast growing company and I’m really proud to be a part of that, by working at the warehouse and making sure our customers get their orders as quickly as possible.I also been really cool see how quickly everything’s changed in the warehouse.

What’s been your most fun moment at the warehouse?
 The Friday evening post-work drinks. It’s always fun to round off a week together and it’s a great start to the weekend.


Team member Joan Boekema - Pijnenburg
Position: Staff scheduler

How long have you been working at My Jewellery?
It’s been 2.5 years now.

What are some of your daily tasks?
I schedule our teams for the warehouse and liaise with the supervisor, team leads, recruiters and job agencies. 

 What does an average day look like for you?
I start my day at 9.00am. After a cup of tea, I start by getting an overview of team members that are off sick or absent. After that I liaise with employment agencies by email or phone and make sure the scheduling goes smoothly. This is an especially big challenge during busy and hectic periods like the holiday season.

What do you enjoy about your job?
My Jewellery is one big family, and being a part of that feels amazing! No one day is the same, so I really love the diversity of our tasks. For me personally, I enjoy figuring out where we can improve in terms of planning and how we can implement this to bring together a really great and hard-working team! But I most appreciate the close bond with have with our team, and I think we all really value that.

What’s been your most fun moment at the warehouse?
The yearly Christmas party when everyone attends in their nicest outfits.


Team member Viviane Romijn

3,5 years.

What are some of your daily tasks?
I focus on order picking, wrapping and processing the returns.

What does an average day look like for you?
The day starts at 7 am when our team lead gives debrief. The tasks differ on a day to day basis. 

What do you enjoy about your job?
I most enjoy the fun with colleagues. Aside from that it’s really fun to experience how fast My Jewellery has grown in such a short amount of time and is still continuing to grow.


Team member Kai Bertrums
Position: Logistics member

How long have you been working at My Jewellery?
1 year and 3 months. 

What are some of your daily tasks?
I usually work on replenishing, which means I fill up our products for sales orders and boutique orders from the bulk. 

What does an average day look like for you?
I always arrive on time so I have time for another cup of coffee. After that a schedule is made for all of our tasks for that day and I start replenishing. 

What do you enjoy about your job?
I especially enjoy wrapping and replenishing because I’m in close contact with my colleagues while doing that. I love having a chat. There’s always a good atmosphere in the warehouse and amongst our colleagues, which makes the job fun. Time really flies! 

What’s been your most fun moment at the warehouse?
We always work really hard during the festive season & Black Friday, but we’re always playing Christmas music, which means there’s a really great atmosphere. We also had a team BBQ this past summer and that was really fun!
