Fun workplace with a sense of purpose.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – October 24, 2015
Materials handling is a very physically demanding and often monotonous job. But, for anybody who believes in the organizations mission, there is no denying that the position is an important part of getting the message to it's intended audience.
The job most commonly involves: bundling and wrapping mail, moving filled mail trays and pallets, feeding and adjusting mail inserter machines, hand filling smaller mailings with irregular materials (i.e. cds), or sorting and strapping bundles of mailers or magazines. Pallets and mail cages often weigh in excess of 800 lbs.
Breaks are regular and communal, team-building exercises regularly occur during paid work hours, overtime was optional, and paid time off requests were usually granted. The team was overall very easy going and enjoyable to work with.
Sense of purpose, regular breaks, fun environment.
Was in major restructuring at time of employment.
