I spent 8 years working as a distribution associate at School Specialty. Over the years I had an array of responsibilities. Data entry, receiving, shipping, and managing a small team were just a few of the jobs I did there. I enjoyed that the company always wanted to train me to work in another area of the distribution center. At times, they even sent me to other distribution centers to assist with training. My management team was great. When I first started I noticed that a lot of the management worked their way up from the bottom. During my past couple of years there, S.S. started hiring any young person fresh out of college with no distribution experience that me and my coworkers would have to train. There was a strong team environment. I could always find a helping hand when needed. Pay was good for the area I lived in. There was a good amount of PTO and vacation days. I miss this job. It felt like I was definitely part of a family there.
