Warehouse Supervisor, Miami - October 3, 2014
During my time working on Pricesmart, I was able to acquire experience working in an environment where one person has to play many roles. In my position as a supervisor of almost 70 people, I learned to deal with each of the members of my team. Many times the differences of cultures served me as experience to know how to treat each one of my employees.A typical day at work was a 15 hours shift for me, working six days a week. My daily responsibility was to arrive an hour before all employees to make the right plan for the next four hours. Usually, I had to visualize the quantity of goods that we had physically in the warehouse in order to run a report that can give me the exact numbers of the quantity of merchandise that we had. With that report in hand, I was able to make an estimate of how many containers we were loading that day and how many hours each employee would work that day. Personally, I had an excellent relation with all my co-workers since I always treat everyone with respect. The hardest part of my job as a supervisor was working long hours without taking any break. Most of the time, I had a really good experience working at Pricesmart since everybody recognized my commitment with the company.
