Great place to work with many opportunities and benefits.
Pros: catered lunches once a quarter, ocassional cookouts
Cons: a lot of overtime hours
A typical day at work started at 5 am in order to plan work through the warehouse and place associates in their respective jobs for the day. We were one of the largest apparel distributors in the US and internationally with a large workload and numerous customers which all had various requirements. I mastered all account requirements, planned worked in the warehouse by shipping and cancelation dates, worked with customer service and shipping clerks to insure shipments were ready for carrier pickup. I also worked very close with the upper management team to increase production, participate in customer conference calls, and investigate charge backs. My co-workers/supervisors were advised of needs for shipping and worked closely with me to follow the progress through the warehouse, we had a great team relationship. My associates were terrific guys that made sure orders were pulled and staged for shipments before carriers arrived. I enjoyed working with and supervising these associates and they treated me with the same respect as I treated them. The hardest part of this job was meeting the end of month, end of quarter, and end of year demands. We always succeeded and shipped 100% of our goals. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the great management team, my associates and associates in other departments. After 24 years in this company with all of the over time we put in these people were like a second family.
