A typical day at work would comprise of a lot of running around, picking out orders, Fixing orders, loading/unloading trailers, dealing with customers via phone or email, managing employees, Data entry, shipping processes, and constant communication not only with my team but management, human resources and potential investors.
I loved my co-workers – more... and miss them dearly. I've learned a lot in my 5 years there, including how to better communicate with people, dealing with multiple personalities, exercising patience, how to be a effective person, not only as a individual but also as a team member and/or manager. The hardest part of the job was when we received short orders or the wrong orders. That usually led to delays in production of products which would then show up later in the week or month. The most enjoyable part of my job? the respect earned and given. There was a certain standard of respect that everyone shared with each other and led to an effective, precise, and extremely efficient work force that put us above the other teams. – less
