Be prepared to bring an extra pair of nostrils, because the first pair is gonna burn off. A typical day at work is really fun, typically 7 hours into the work on Monday and the Thursday up to the weekend, people tend to hurt themselves. The hardest part of the job is people worrying so much about impressing the bosses that they hurt themselves, endanger other, slowing up the work, and unfortunately end up getting fired anyway. The most enjoyable part of the the was the training. You sit through 4 days of class on warehouse etiquette and operation of machinery. You pass or you don't get the job. I learned it becomes corporate. You must do exercise here, non-negotiable or you WILL become stiff and injure yourself. You are overworked so exercise and healthy eating are going to be the only things that keep you going. If you feel you are working to hard to fit in, start looking for another job. They will fire you if it is not working out them. The main thing at this warehouse is people are constantly trying to impress with speed and the rewards demand speed, hence the rack up of injured workers, fired employees and damaged equipment. Its a cycle of everyone pretending they know what higher ups demand, and not having a clue. If you want to be successful hear. Read all the articles. Avoid people who work dangerously and show up late. Always finish your car and begin helping others. Never make excuses not to help.
