Drove a fork lift , organized product packages. Worked in a fast paced environment and multi tasked during each work shift. Took instructions well and learned new things about the job. Worked well with others as a team.
Generally consisted of arranging Scotts products in store to ensure they are stocked and ready for sale. Does require some travel, but nothing too far. Managers generally allow you the freedom to maintain the stores as you see fit, and the hours are fairly standard. Good money for the job.
I really enjoyed the job, enjoyed managing a great group of staff. I also won Rookie of the Year in 2015 and Sales Manager of the Year 2016 which I was given a trip of a lifetime boat cruise, it was amazing.
I work within logistics of the company. I find the upper management is cut throat. Still idea's and take all the credit. Specific managers was a director and is now a VP is not trustable and takes credit for his employees doing the job creating cost savings and then takes all the credit. If he feels you are a threat he makes you look bad.
