A typical day at work was never typical. I learned how to run a successful inventory report before EOD after all the cycle counts have been performed by my team, the hardest part of my job was to motivate new associates that did not take the job in a professional manner. That was also the most rewarding part of the job as well, being able to motivate people who wasn't interested in working fast and accurately.

Training people who didn't have the ambition to learn.
The company started out positive, but over a few months upper management changed multiple times. The company is looking for yes men not people that genuinely care about the people or the work. Its a great company if you like to be micromanaged and under appreciated. There are a few people that care, but sadly they are a dying breed here. No training, KPI's or direction. Dotcom allows the clients to dictate how the business is run and don't think for themselves. Moral within the building is poor to say the least. There is very little room for advancement and they make promises they don't keep. I've seen several employees promised raises and promotions to only do the job without the proper compensation. I recommend thinking twice before accepting a role here.
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.
