A typical day would start at 7 am and run the gamet until work was finished which could be 6 - 11 pm that night. I leaned a great deal from this company as I created the Mail Center from scratch and built it up to a company wide system of mail, supply ordering, and fulfillment center with international logistics and planning. I also learned a lot about importing and exporting as we operated programs all over the world. Co-workers in my department were very flexible to work with and understanding as we had to deal with lots of type A personalities demanding changes not only to print production bot to timelines and scheduels. The hardest part was figuring out international customs and how to get things in or out of a country from the US. Management was always supportive and on your side. There is so much to this job it is hard to type out everyting good about it and what all we did in a single day.
