Warehouse Associate, Ivyland, PA - August 26, 2012
A typical day at work included pulling orders, loading trucks, piecing together machines from the equipment repair shop, and organizing warehouse at the end of the shift, i.e. running compactor, running skids and pallets and unloading next days shipments. I learned that for the best results to be achieved each employee could not function alone but rather as a unit, with one person going from their duty to anothers to aid in accomplishing the days agenda in an organized and timely fashion. The management was firm but fair and was willing to take part in what ever was needed as the rest of the staff to get the nights job complete. The hardest part of the job was the physical aspect, often times lifting loads of well over 75 lbs for 8 to 10 hours at a time. At the end of the day the most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that each and every individual gave it the best they could day in and day out.
