Small manufacturing company that unfortunately the owner let get to big for what he knows. Poorly managed
Cons: no benefits, hard, micro-managing upper management
A typical day at work consisted of entering orders in a spreadsheet based system which I implemented, as there was no order processing system in place. Checking emails and dealing with customer service took up a lot of my day, which was enjoyable.
My co-workers were great and we worked together to attempt to keep the office running smoothly as upper management was horribly inept.
The hardest part of my job was just attempting to accomplish the day to day order processing because upper management did not understand what it took to process, ship, or follow through with a client. We needed to go back to the customer and find a way to keep them happy so that they would continue to order from us.
The most enjoyable part of the day was when we did get our customers to be happy no matter what upper management had done to make them upset.
