At the London warehouse, ( which doesn't exist anymore), batteries arrived up to 3 x weekly, all just black case. The product had to then be sorted and set up for labeling. Product was first volt checked then labeled to customer specs, and then picked to orders and set up for shipping. All employees handling product needed to be TDG certified. No comment on upper Canadian management My co-workers were hard working and dedicated to doing their jobs to the best of their ability, all of which was aimed at customer service. Hardest part of the job was the day to day slugging. it was not a question of being able to lift 50-60 lbs. at a time, but rather being able to do it 500+ times today, and then come back tomorrow and do it again and again. Best part of the job was the staff at London, superb!, They made my job as manager appear so easy. Second best part ? the customers! They seemed always ready to thank you for doing that extra bit for them. Rotation of product had to be strictly enforced to keep write downs to a minimum.
