Pros: i have been able to learn so much from being in this current position, which i can take with me where ever i may go.
Cons: i've been a temp. for over 2 years now, and have no sense of permanency. we are still waiting for this created position to be approved.
My work day can be very busy consisting of multiple projects. The first thing I do is gather all the necessary paper work for my many daily reports, download all photos taken by our Quality Control Department, open all worksheets then go through new email and correspond as needed.
Next, I organize all my paperwork accordingly then start on my annotations, – more... report my findings, bill all vendor non-compliance issues then check on the status of my previous claims. Now I go onto recording the department’s production and hours, input my information in multiple spreadsheets to track and record all activity for that day.
At this point, I now log all supplies used for that particular day so we can bill the appropriate divisions. I check in with the Merchandise Coordinators and upper management to see if they may have any project that I may help them with. I create work orders for Special Handling to work on and do US Customs/Commercial Invoices for goods needing to go out of the Country. I work with the Traffic team out of New Jersey as well as our Air Authorization team to have all my invoice’s approved so I can now prepare the goods to be shipped.
If there is any free time I may have, I check with Merchandise marketing to see if they may need my help in their department. In Merchandise marketing, any issues found with the hangtags or bag stickers; we take photos, create new tags, affix to the garment, repack and send it on its way.
A variety of project and reports may be needed throughout the day and periodically I’ll check for new emails to follow up on.
Our management team is a great resource whenever we may be in need of help. Sometimes there may be issues that may arise concerning the time involved with the Special Handling Department completing a project. The management team is quick to respond in acquiring additional help and help in directing in the logistics to push a project in order to accommodate the division’s request.
I work with a variety of people from different back grounds and cultures. It is great to work with a team that comes to work to work and gets the job done.
The only thing that I find hard is our schedule. We work 8 hours with a 30 minute break and I am trying to get into the habit of eating breakfast so I won’t be so hungry till lunch with is after working 5 hours without even a 5 minute break. Other than that, I enjoy my job. The fast pace, multiple projects going on, meeting timelines and going from one area to another is very satisfying. Being able to help my superiors and figuring out action plans together is really great. I enjoy leaving work at the end of my shift having a good sense of accomplishment. – less
