Ever changing, need to be flexible, be prepared to change plans.
Warehouse Commercial Services (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 4, 2016
Usually, there are many things going on at once during the day. What will happen is we prepare for what is going on the day before. When things don't go according to plan, we have to think of solutions right away. For example, if the truck or trailer that is to be loaded breaks down or has safety issues, we as a team have to make decisions to make alternatives work. Fortunately, there is a team in place that makes these things happen. Management is very responsive to the needs as they arise. As long as everyone communicates, the problems generally get solved. If not, they problem is identified to the customer. Even though customers may be upset, they are appraised of the problem and the solutions we are working on. There are many things coming and going in the warehouse. Probably, the hardest part of the job is keeping track of all the items. Making sure items between customers don't get mixed up. I think what I like most is being able to work together to get problems solved. I never felt I was alone and could not seek help. Overall it is a tough work environment. Planning is important, but be prepared for problems that could arise.
Good team in place, Co-workers work together to solve problems.
May have to work late/weekends.
