Order Confirmation Clerk, Akron, NY - March 25, 2015
A typical day at Perry's Ice Cream is to gather all paperwork and confirm all truck driver's paperwork from the day before. Call any customers/drivers if any paperwork is missing. Research any pricing problems with the invoice and apply credits After all paperwork is confirmed run all reports for the day including Inventory Control. If any trucks are off in inventory research the problem and fix inventory once the problem was resolved. The problems could come from fixing the invoices, main warehouse, IT, etc. If time allowed audit and record all the Expense reports for the week into a spreadsheet. I learned so much at Perry's Ice Cream. I learned how to confirm all orders that were going out of the building and recognize which ones were priced differently such as employee purchases and sales purchasing. Once a week I would receive credits and debits from the headquarters of Wal-Mart and apply the credit to their account. I also at month end would keep track of deliveries and invoices that have not been delivered. At month end I would call customers, distribution centers to get confirmation on the invoices that I have not received so the finance department could close their books by a certain date. On Mondays I would come in early so I could confirm the driver's paperwork that were working on commission so the payroll could be done by 10 am that morning. I would plan out my Monday a head of time by running reports and calculating how much I would have to do and adjust my time accordingly. The management was incredible. It was a family orientated and understood that I was a single mom. The most enjoyable part of my job was making friends with my truck drivers and helping them as needed. The hardest part of my job was adjusting my time on Monday morning especially in July. Sometimes the reports weren't 100% accurate especially in the mid summer. People had until the day before at 5pm to place their orders.
