A very productive environment focused on time management and communication.
Shipping Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chatsworth, CA – December 12, 2015
A typical day begins with basic inventory counts of dunnage and art plates used for printing logos onto cans. I then go on to process the information through the SAP system as well as process any shuttles from the day prior that have not been processed. I then reconcile accounts for Arizona, Coca Cola, and Anheiser Busch to find any potential shortages. Throughout the day I am consistently updating our inventory and checking for loads deemed as "scrap" and HFI (hold for inspection) in order to avoid potential faulty cans from being sent to customers. I then proceed to updating the shuttling schedule through the SAP system to ensure that the correct quantity of cans are being sent to the correct location at the correct date and time. The SAP system allows Rexam plants all over the United States to communicate and delegate cans to/from specific warehouses.
The hardest part of the job is finding ways to become more fluent within the SAP system. It gets very busy at the plant and often times results in a lack of time to dive into potential new skills. It is a very thorough job criterion and every task needs to be completed with utmost diligence. This is the hardest part of the job.
The part of the job I enjoy the most is the amount of personal growth I have experience. I have learned new skills that make me overall a more through and detail-oriented person.
