(4) What has been one of your biggest challenge working at Guero’s Pallets?
Communication was a problem, at the beginning there were a lot of details I had to learn. Missing one detail can result in a big issue and unnecessary stress so it can become difficult to focus. However, I am now able to manage several tasks and be on top of all the details. I continue to learn and get better in communication. I also keep improving my management skills.
(5) What advice do you have for our customers?
Everyone should do their own due diligence before deciding their pallet needs. Many companies end up spending more money for pallets than what is required to get the job done. It usually happens when a customer doesn’t know what kind of pallets are the best for their products. Guero’s Pallets is great at helping their customers get the best pallet solution at a great price. Since Guero’s Pallets is a manufacturer of pallets, and delivers the pallets, we guarantee competitive pricing. Guero’s Pallets takes the extra mile to make sure customers are happy with their pallets.

I am a big sport enthusiast. I watch all kind of sports: soccer, basketball,and football. I listen to sports talk shows or podcasts more than I listen to music.
(7) What's your favorite pallet?
I like combo pallets. Combo pallets are made with used and new materials. I particularly like the pallets that have new stringers and used deck boards. Combo pallets look nice, and have a new pallet appearance. They are very economical and durable pallets.
(8) What's your favorite dish?
It's a Nepalese dish called “Momo”. It's like a dumpling, wrapped with meat.
