3rd Shift, Distribution warehouse with lots of potential.
Freight Handling Coordinator/ Trainer. (Current Employee) – Lansing, MI – January 2, 2013
A typical day at work:
When arriving to work the first thing you do is sign your name on a list. This list is how they start the day off on a "fist come first served basest" system which tells them who gets the first truck to unload and so-forth.
This employer pays their employees by a production-performance based pay system.
My Job as a trainer is to teach the new hire's on how to appropriately and successfully complete their job in a safely and timely manner. That upholds to F.H.I's safety values.
"We commit to a standard of excellence in safety that protects the health of our associates and customers."
What I have learned is:
With hard work and high ambitions its relatively easy to move forward
with F.H.I with it's endless potential. But in regards to there "compensation / benefits" it can be a little disheartening (when at times) there's not enough trucks to unload with too many employees.
F.H.I is a relatively young company. They have a few bugs in the their management system that could use some help but, What company doesn't.
Hard working, devoted individuals.
The hardest part of the job:
The hours can be a little unforgiving at times. Since the work day isn't completed until all the work (trucks) have been finished.
The most enjoyable part of the day:
Would be, The one on one time with the new hires.
Training / Teaching is part of a business developing passion of mine.
it's performance based pay. you get what you give.
