Working at Grimco as my first job has been a great, unique experience. It is a fun, hardworking environment with high spirits and a shared desire to learn, grow, and advance. I have learned invaluable things during my time at Grimco. Among those things are how to effectively chose the most cost-effective method to ship a product, how to think critically in order to work around situations that might seem hard to figure out, how to run COD reports and make sure money that has not been collected gets collect, and how to build strong professional relationships with co-workers, customers, and vendors in order to build an environment where business can grow.
The hardest part of the job is really learning about, and understanding, the needs and requirements of each individual customer in order to make efficient and mutually beneficial transactions.
By far, the most enjoyable part of my job is setting a branch wide goal that can be attained by only one individual. For example, who can make the most outbound calls and reach the most customers and/or make the most sales in a given day, week, or month and having to give it your all in order to come out on top.
