Free, same-day medication delivery is an important part of the care Medly provides. To make sure everything runs seamlessly from our drivers to your doorstep, Medly depends on Senior Leader Jason Krajewski. For this week’s Medly Spotlight, we’re talking to Jason about his role at Medly, what makes us different from other pharmacies, and his love of buffalo wings.
I was born and raised in the Philadelphia area – Port Richmond area to be more specific. I came from a blue collar family where my father worked for UPS for 30 years, so Logistics is in my blood. I started my career in the Health and Wellness industry after receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Fitness Management with a Minor in Nutrition.
After working in the field for two years I decided to take a job delivering for Amazon to earn extra money. From there I ended up growing a career I never expected within the Logistics industry. I worked my way through Amazon, from being a delivery driver to becoming a Regional Manager for an Amazon 3PL contractor. After leaving Amazon I was blessed with the opportunity to join the Medly team, where I have the privilege to work with some of the hardest working employees I know. I have now been with Medly for 10 months, and look forward to being here for many more.
While my job is more on the logistics side of things, I have also had a passion for helping others. I love working in a field where I have a direct impact on promoting health and wellness. Whether that is giving nutritional or fitness advice during my previous experience, or getting crucial medications to those who need it now through working at Medly.
My role at Medly is the Senior Lead of Delivery in our Philadelphia location, where I oversee the day to day delivery operations here in Philadelphia.
I chose Medly because of the direction the company is going and how quickly we have grown. Medly reminds me of Amazon before Amazon was Amazon. It was an opportunity I could not turn down and was eager to be a part of it.
Medly is different from other pharmacies because of the ability to reach customers miles aways and get the crucial medication our clients need in such an efficient and convenient way. The culture here at Medly is unlike any other place I have worked. The people around me all work together for a common goal and truly care about the customers we service.
My favorite part of my job is watching my employees grow. It is truly rewarding when I see my new hires flourish in the role and become excellent assets to our company.
One of my favorite stories since working here at Medly was a patient who gave a Google review about their delivery. They commended our driver on how polite and informative they were during the entire delivery process, and also commended us on getting her medication to her door in less than two hours after sending the script to our pharmacy.
For food I am a buffalo wings guy – or anything that has hot sauce on it. As far as movies, my go-to is either Django Unchained or Band of Brothers (even though that’s not really a movie). The things I do for fun are fish, golf, spending time with my girlfriend Taylor, and of course dedicating most of my time outside of work to working on the Philadelphia Mummer’s Parade with my string band. If you don’t know what the Mummer’s are – YouTube them. You won’t be disappointed.
Medly is filled with all kinds of people united in their passion to help others. We’re grateful for the commitment and contributions that our talented team makes every day. In this series, we’re sitting down with Medly team members to get their unique perspective on what it’s like to work at Medly and support our growing community of patients and providers.
