The best place EVER I have worked for!
Special Projects Manager (Former Employee) – Kent, WA – June 26, 2013
I worked at Mohawk Industries Inc for 4 years, and very enjoyable ones too. I first started out as a maintenance man, repairing electrical problems in this HUGE warehouse as well as plumbing problems I fixed too. My duties involved filling up all propane tanks throughout the warehouse and storing filled tanks in an open air metal shelving facility, secured by a lock. I would pick orders of flooring and tile by using a forklift to get items too heavy to hand carry and stored on heavy racks in the warehouse. Then assist in using a stinger forklift to put heavy carpet rolls into warehouse, scanning barcodes with infra red scanners.
Later promoted to Special Projects Manager.
Provided sales personnel with various carpet and tile samples of open line products.I maintained a high degree of accuracy in receiving new products into the warehouse as well as interaction with sales staff in packaging and loading samples into a computerized order tracking system I set up. My coworkers were like part of my extended family, we shared amusing stories and pictures taken on our phones, had snacks together and when needed, worked OT together.
The hardest part was not trying to disappoint those who were counting on me to deliver whatever I had promised them that day, whether it was an order, spare parts or just assisting our sales staff.
The most enjoyable part was delivering my promised orders to whomever I had promised to, as I never disappointed any of our sales staff, employees or warehouse manager with my failure to deliver.
enjoyable job responsibilities, coworkers, lots of fun!
forklift traffic, always stress on delivery of orders, slow down in orders prompted company to lay off 8 employees, myself included.
