Pros: free product for employees, company functions
Cons: warehouse space
Started the day by coming and in preparing work for direct reports and organized shipping priorities for that day. Conveyed that information to dock workers and order picking crew. In constant contact with Customer Service Dept with urgent request and issues with customer orders. Often assisted on the floor when needed as well. Helped pick and load orders when needed. Scheduled LTL and container load pickups with local and region carriers. Maintained solid working relationship with them.
I learned to use WMS systems there such as IVS and Red Prairie, as well as good time management, communication and people skills. Hardest part of the job was probably dealing with over space of the warehouse for finished goods. That would lead to occasional inventory accuracy issues. I absolutely loved my co workers. Everyone helped each other and really had a team work feel to everything. The most enjoy aspect was working with good people, getting customers their orders and having fun doing it. Management was solid and also would lend a helping hand when needed.
