Pros: we have flexible lunches, safety contests, some good benefits, and opportunities to advance.
Cons: we are short handed, which causes us to work a lot of nights and weekends, the drive takes about an hour one way, it is very dusty and dirty.
We manage a tool crib in the motor vehicle industry. I come in before the day shift starts in order to supply the employees with their proper personal protective equipment (PPE) items. I then run a usage and replenishment report from the previous day. After the shift change is over, I then run the daily buy list report of the items needed to be purchased – more... and replenished. Around 10 each morning the daily receivable items come in to be received and put up in stock. At the end of the week I do the weekly billing of all the items received. I work with two other co-workers that have their own duties. During the day there is myself and the site manager that works. At all times I am available for the employees when they need various items for their machines. I also assist the maintenance personnel in locating machine parts. All during the day, when time permits, I source various parts for cost savings. Some of the hardest work is trying to find a certain part, that we don't stock, for a very old machine. I enjoy the relationships I have developed over the years with the people the most. – less
