Picker/Packer in the Warehouse (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 4, 2017
I clock-in at 11am. I was assigned a isle to clean and push products forward. We would then start to print out the orders of the day from customers and companies. I then would grab a empty cart and go down each isle where the product I needed on the order was located. Bring that complete cart to the QC person for them to scan. After scanning I would take the part and go to my packing station and begin to pack the products into boxes and send them on the conveyor belt to go on the UPS truck. Once all the orders have gone on the UPS truck, We would all go throughout the warehouse and clean and sweep the trash.
Given daily order in which to Identify and pick proper product. Then QC items to make sure that all product was proper orders. Other tasks included personal projects for warehouse manager in counting inventory and damaged goods, work behind computer to print and review orders along with emailing customers on service and any other questions revolving customs and purchasing. Driving a fork lift off and on loading trucks with no prior license was also a privilege given from management.
warehouse functions to cover shortage of staff (Current Employee) – Windsor, CT – June 30, 2015
Unfortunately, the environment of this employer has changed drastically in the almost 4 yrs. I have been employed there. I started in the Receiving Department. There has been turnovers of 2 Operations Managers, 3 managers and a constant hiring in warehouse employees.
There is no morale and no respect given to workers. Co-workers who have been employed for a longer period, are those I can relate to because of the current environment. However, I am an easy-going and hard working man who needs to make a living to provide for my family. I keep a positive, upbeat attitude and do my job with great diligence although it is quite uncomfortable. I get along with everyone & am proud of the job I was hired to do. However, I was sent over to the Shipping Department & my hours have drastically changed. My previous hours were 8am - 5pm, working overtime when necessary. As of the past couple of weeks, my hours are 11am - ?...depending on the day. Mondays it appears there are a shortage of employees due to the fact they call in. In order to get the job done, an average time to leave is between 9pm -11pm (I have yet to work until 11pm but others have) I continue to work for this employee because of my work ethic & diligence. There is no advancement & the limit is $14.00/hr. I make currently $12.75/hr, started at $11.00/hr. I have learned that sometimes employees are just a number & not appreciated or given "a pat on the back" for a job well done.
The most enjoyable part of my work day is lunch when I call & speak with my wife who gives me a vote of confidence & encouragement.
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 7, 2013
A typical day starts with a meeting on how to get more productivity done. In this company there is amount of work by quota that needs to be done by shift. If your quota is not met , you are written up. There will be Temp agency workers to train daily, as you are not paid to train. I've learn to depend on certain team mates to execute job duties daily. The hardest part of the job is not knowing if your employment is available the following day, as new co workers come and go. My overall opinion is that there is no job security at all in this work place , but who am I to judge.
Europa Sports offers an amazing opportunity to not only learn about the health industry, but to work side by side with some of the biggest names in muscle building and sports fitness competitions. Shifts are 9 hours long but that includes a one hour lunch within a building that has a complete full service gym including a personal trainer and nutritionist on staff at all times. The people are extremely well educated in the industry and always willing to talk health to improve each others workouts.
A typical day at work for me is recieved goods,put away items using cherry picker.The hardest part of me job is doing others jobs if they call out.The most enjoyable part is driving all of the equipment.
Productive and fun workplace with family atmosphere
Warehouse Associate, Full Time (Former Employee) – Mesquite, TX – August 17, 2012
I learned the many different areas of the warehouse including, picking and packing orders, quality control, local delivery driver, and trained new employees. A typical day in the facility included picking a packing customer orders, and upon resquest I assumed the position of quality control when needed, and I also processed orders on the computer and loaded the packages on the computer. I did almost every job in the warehouse, and my co workers admired me because I was there a long time and I motivated them with my work ethic. Management also requested that new employees be trained by myself.
