Pros: benefit and good pay
Cons: being under staffed
Running a meat department that did over a $100,000 dollars a week in sales. Ordering , stocking , checking trucks, inventory , giving out directions to my staff. Meeting production goals ,and making sure of proper rotation . Cutting meat , doing price changes , repeated lifting of boxes over 50 lbs .Forklift driving.
What I learned was how to get the – more... best out of my staff and to completely turn around a bad running meat department when I took over with having no prior meat experience.
Management was easy going but demanding and fun to work with.
Co-workers in my area were easy to get along with and easy to train.They took well to my leadership and were willing to learn anything I asked .
Hardest part of my job was doing inventory since everything was by the pound.
The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing all the hard work that I put into turning around the meat department in sales, profit and overall customer service. – less
