It is a fun warehouse, with steady work.
Lead Man (Current Employee) – Bridgeton, MO – September 2, 2015
A typical day for me is always a new adventure. I run a crew of 9 dock workers, who break down loads received. I myself check in at least 40 drivers. It's not so bad meeting new people, cracking wise and hearing their stories. When I get a break from the desk, I go on the floor and work loads. The crew is a good one, we do what we can to pass the time and make it enjoyable. I see it as getting paid to work out. The faster we get our work done the sooner we leave for the day. The best part of the job is all the people I meet, and the regulars I have come to know. The worst part of the job is it's physically demanding. That and I have to work through my lunch, while my coworkers get time to relax. You do need to watch yourself in this busy environment. I have seen people get hurt quite a bit. If you get hurt don't expect the company to show any love. I have learned how to deal in a fast paced, stressful environment.
I get to meet some really cool people.
Healthcare, pay, and long hours.
