Employee Spotlight: Andres Hernandez

During Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re inviting L&P employees to share about their everyday Leggett life and their heritage.


We’d like you to meet Andres Hernandez! Andres is a Crater Operator and has been with L&P for 21 years.

“I enjoy my job because it is very fast-paced and it makes my nights of 10 or 12 hours go by quickly,” said Andres.

“The first thing I do after clocking in is my daily exercises. Then, I inspect my machine and area. After that, I am ready to start crating units all night. When it’s time to go home, my partner and I start scanning our production tags and cleaning for the other shift so they can work in a clean and safe environment.”

When he’s not at work, Andres focuses on family and resting:

“Before work, I spend my time with my family, and after work, I go home and rest. During the weekends, I take my family out or have a get-together at my house so I can have everyone there because my family is very important to me.”

When sharing about his heritage, Andres said, “I am very proud of my Hispanic heritage! I am a hard worker, a survivor, and all I want is to give my family and myself what my parents couldn’t give me. All we want is the American Dream!”
