Lynne Schildt has been with Suburban Propane for 28 years and has been a Credit and Collections Manager for 10 years out of our Eldersburg, MD office. Lynne has served in various roles throughout the years, and started with the company as a Customer Service Representative out of our DC Metro location. Since that time, she was an Office Manager and a Region Coordinator where she also managed her region’s Cash Application Centers before they were migrated to our central office in Whippany NJ.
Lynne has stayed with Suburban Propane because, “My relationships that I have established through the years have been so valuable for me. TEAM truly means, ‘Together Everyone Achieves More’ and I not only love supporting our team, I appreciate the support I get too.”
In these uncertain times, she appreciates that the company has put many tools in place right from the beginning with the safety of all employees in mind and were very conscientious with staying on top of the ever-evolving changes day by day. According to Lynne, “Our teams work tirelessly and unconditionally during these uncertain times to serve our customers without missing a beat. They are our Suburban hometown heroes. As for our community heroes, I know there were many events sponsored by Suburban Propane and our employees were able to participate and show our appreciation for all they continue to do within our communities. Working and coming together is so important and we should continue to demonstrate community involvement whenever possible.”
Lynne reflected on the many years she’s spent at Suburban Propane and felt there has always been many opportunities for growth. “We have control over the path we choose. In all my roles within Suburban Propane, I have always enjoyed the diversity of what can be done and how I can add support. I love putting myself into any role with others and helping where and whenever needed, and that’s how you gain respect for one another. Be true to yourself and love what you do.”
Lynne enjoys giving back to her local communities by supporting animal causes such as Operations Paws and the ASPCA and also giving to others in need such as No Kid Hungry Foundation and Helping Up Missions. “I’ve challenged myself over the years to beat my fear of needles and give blood to the American Red Cross every time I’m eligible. This past year I stepped it up with the Power Reds donation, and my reward is the feedback I received from the American Red Cross telling me how my donation helped in a time of need.”
Lynne recommends working for Suburban Propane because, “I want to love coming to work and enjoy what I do, enjoy the people I work with and know that I can make a difference. It’s important knowing that you can make a difference and help others grow too.”
