This was my learning place for the Import/Export business. Good people willing to take the time to teach you. After 10 yrs I still keep in touch with my old bosses who became my teachers,advisors, & most important my friends.
This was alway a fast pace job. You were dealing with so many different aspects of the industry. You had the customer ( who we all know is alway right even when wrong ,they are the CUSTOMER) K&N taught me how to handle situation with the customer with business like dignity and politeness and explain why what they were asking couldn't be but we can do it this other way and be right and get the job done. They taught me how to stand up to customers who were dead wrong but insisted they were right. To politely and business like explain (a dozen times if necessary) why it had to be done by S.S. Lines standard or A/L standard;not theirs. They were the best in the Industry in my book when I look back at the jobs I have had in the Industry.
