At a point in my adult life that I want to work with adults and not children. I have another 12 years teaching before I could retire. I think there is another career I am ready for at this point in my life.

Productive workplace, business first, trust
COMPUTER TECHNICIAN/SHIPPING MANAGER (Former Employee), Lexington, SCFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: manager trusted my skills, ran wh how i felt it should be run
Cons: hot days, heavy tires, low pay
I assumed the position of warehouse manager as well as shipping director in my time at Palmetto Specialty Tire. Every morning I would gather all of the new orders that were received and spent time staging and loading each one. I was also in charge of receiving shipments as well as keeping the warehouse organized in an efficient manner. I learned a lot about the workings of a warehouse as well as the shipping/receiving industry. Management was very kind and helpful, and they trusted me to manage the warehouse alone with some input from them once in a while. The hardest part of this job was lifting those big, hot tires in the summer heat of Columbia/Lexington. But the most enjoyable part would be the feeling of satisfaction that I got when the warehouse was spotless and organized in a manner that both my manager and I felt efficient.

Manufacturing company with a lot of great coworkers
warehouseman (lead) (Former Employee), Bristol, PAJune 25, 2014
Pros: vacation/holidays/benefits
Cons: upper mgmt was cold/ pay was low
This was a union job with great vacation and holidays. Typically I would work 50-55 hours a week. When they were busy we could work as much as 70 hours a week with overtime pay.The pay was not great but overtime made it more bearable. What made me stay here for as long as I did was mostly the benefits. At the time these benefits were the best out there and were company paid. The coworkers here were good people too and I made many lifetime friends here. Individual managers were very good people to work for but upper mgmt was a different world and really none of them in the upper mgmt positions would give you the time of day let alone be personable with anyone beneath them. There really was not anything too hard with this job. You could bid on jobs anywhere in the company according to seniority and once securing a new position would be trained on how to do that particular job. So advancement was always there if you wanted it. The people were the greatest part of working here for sure. I liked my time here!
