Factory Motor Parts has been a good stepping stone in my life. It's provided me with employment to help me keep my family in our home.
A typical day at work has me arriving at 9:30 in the morning. I begin by seeing what orders need to be pulled, asking our GM what the early part of the morning has been like, and getting ready to dispatch out the drivers I have on hand on routes to our customers. I then handle pulling orders, answering phone calls, and dealing with the day to day filing of paperwork.
The hardest part of the job for me as I get older, is the physicality of lifting batteries, rotors, and larger axles. The most enjoyable? The feeling of knowing that I'm helping a customer get their customers back on the road by getting the parts to them in a timely fashion.
This is a good job for young people willing to do hard work for a fair wage. Look at it as a stepping stone to where you want to be next.
