Fast-paced, unpredictable work days. Long hours.
Dotcom Distribution is a unique styled third-party logistics provider. They offer warehousing and shipping solutions for online retailers. Given the nature of their clients, mostly online flash-sale retailers, the operational goals, while sufficient at getting the job done, were hectic and difficult to achieve. The most difficult part of working there was with communication. It was difficult to communicate new policies and strategies across different managers, and cooperation in new practices was constantly met with great resistance. The company employed competent and knowledgeable people, but there was a communication issue. Given that, Dotcom's people would accomplish wonders every day. They would overcome all obstacles in order to get the products to the end customer on time, however doing so caused a tense work environment and culture. Hard work is always a challenge and a learning experience, however, and so I'm glad I had the opportunity to spend time with Dotcom.
