Team meeting to communicate any issues, challenges and acknowledgements followed with MPD departmental communication to review and monitor all weekly account order allocations. Analyzing and cutting orders to fit within budget and, or regulatory compliance standards, especially all outbound Canadian shipments, resolving those issues and releasing orders to the DC and logistics team. I learned how a chain salon and major haircare expansion model works with constant acquisitions, automatic replenishment programs, order reviews and allocations, and the challenges or endless CN compliance regulations for various types of products. How to minimize mistakes, fix them, and stay within budget while preventing chargebacks. My co-workers were pleasantly nice and friendly, family oriented people who loved reality television and gossip. The hardest part of the job was educating certain account managers of regulatory compliancy needs and the importance of timeliness with their order releases keeping the operational big picture in mind. The most enjoyable part of the job was saving the company thousands of dollars and gaining recognition for "saving the day" prior to what could have been major CN border issues or over-budget challenges.
