Sadoff Iron and Metal Company is housed in Air Park, which is located in northwest Lincoln. They currently have two locations, one for ferrous and one for non-ferrous materials, both located on N.W. 39th street. Later this year, Sadoff will be moving both of their operations to a new location at N.W. 44th street, which will help expand their business to existing customers as well as serve others they may have been unable to serve previously.
How did you get started in the business? – Before coming to work for Sadoff Iron & Metal Company in December of 2011, I worked for a locally owned and operated auto salvage yard in the Lincoln area for five years. I liked this job, and would still not mind working there, but there was no further room for advancement and Sadoff was looking to expand their coverage of buyers in the Lincoln and Omaha area.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally? – I think the biggest challenge I have faced professionally was trying to maintain customer friendships during my move from my previous company to Sadoff. On the other hand, it is nice to continue to serve existing customers of mine as well as ones that I knew and was unable to help before.
What has been your most important achievement professionally? – I think that my most exciting achievement is having my resume of excellent jobs, including my current job, without having a college degree.
Tell me a little about your family. – I have lived in Staplehurst, Nebraska my entire life, which is a little town just northwest of Lincoln. I am the youngest of eight children and have over thirty nieces and nephews. This certainly makes for eventful holidays when we are all able to gather in one of our homes. Having a large family is something that I have always liked, and has helped me to be able to work with people of any character.
What is the best advice you have ever received? – Treat others as you would want them to treat you! This is why I get such joy in helping others out, even if it means taking up my entire weekend or missing out on something that I want to do for myself.
If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be? – Giving
If you could have a super power, what would it be? – I would have to say the only super power that I would want is to slow down time. This would give us all more time to get to know each other, and keep everyone from always being in a hurry.
What is your favorite book or the last good book you read? – The last book I read that I really liked was “Seven Laws of Highest Prosperity” by Cecil O. Kemp, Jr.
What is your favorite movie? – My favorite movie changes all the time due to new movies coming out, but currently it is “Snitch” because it is action packed and shows how family is the most important thing in one’s life.
What is your favorite local restaurant? – Lazlo’s
If you could have dinner with one famous person from the past or present, who would it be? – Any President of the United States. I think it would help to have a better perspective on their daily responsibilities and obligations.
