Pros: free lunches for meeting safety goals, employee appreciation week, benefits, vacation time from the get go
Cons: productivity standards for certain functions seem unrealistic, workload overload prior to, during, and after holiday weeks
During 2nd shift operations you would hit the ground running faced with the challenge of carrier pick-up dead-lines. Time would pass quickly and there certainly wasn't any room for boredom. The management always had an open-door policy and made room for ideas and suggestions for improvement in safety, quality and productivity. Some of the more challenging aspects included meeting targeted productivity standards that didn't seem to include all the variables that were faced during the picking process. The satisfaction of getting a compliment from a sales rep or customer for going above and beyond their service expectations made all your hard work pay-off.
