Always arrive the warehouse 15 minutes early. Department meeting. Stretch. Get our papers and wait at our door or start working. I worked in receiving department so I would be pulling skids out of trucks. Organising boxes by P.O and styles. Sending them to the right departments. Required to do 3000 boxes a day. Learned how to use their system. Operated a pump truck everyday. Learned tips and tricks with moving/holding boxes.
Management was great. Seemed very organised with many department heads and supervisors. It was very easy to call in sick and not have to worry. There were rules and policies. A proper orientation and training.
I hated this places workplace culture. It felt like I was a farm animal in a barn moving from one place to the next. Especially during the time shifts change. Work ethic was terrible. All the senior employees would just do the bare minimum. Setting very bad examples for new employees to do things right. Especially when you're getting bad mouthed by a senior employee for "working too hard"
The hardest part of the job was turning my brain off just to mentally get through the day. Working with people that hated their job eventually made me hate it too. Also, if you enjoy working in a non-conditioned environment were you sweat, dry off, sweat again. Coming home a sticky smelly mess then this is the job for you.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting paid and going home.
Good management. Opportunities for growth and transfer.
