Pros: good job security, loyal to employees, regular raises
Cons: few opportunities for promotion
If you enjoy a fast-paced work environment, the warehouse was the place. Each of the warehouse staff were responsible for their own set of orders to pull, document, tag, and ship. There was always something to learn about logistics and we had a supervisor who was willing to teach. Compensation was average for the region. At such a small company, growth potential was limited however, the supervisor always acknowledged your hard work. The most difficult thing about the job was occasionally having to lift 40-50lbs but that was very rare. The department was willing to cross-train anyone who was willing to learn and it made the job more fun. I also enjoyed meeting many different people (truck drivers) from around the country.
