Locally, the sales and distribution departments don't get along so well. Almost like conflicts of interest, sales departments want to serve customers as well as they can; warehouses want to serve their operations as well as they can which often doesn't align with serving customers.

4) Lots of OT during the busy seasons if you're open to working extra hours for extra pay
