Packer, Canton, OH - December 7, 2017
Typical day at Shearers we would have a meeting before the shift then go out to our stations to relieve the last shift. Soon as you get there you must be ready to work which means pack the boxes so they can be shipped out to the stores. Its a face paced company and when you are done or your machine is down your required to go make boxes for someone else to help them stay ahead of their job so nobody gets behind or leaves a mess on the floor. Working there I learned to work at a face pace, help out others at work and do not become selfish just because that's not my station, work a pila jack so when someone is done with an order I can quickly move it out the way and bring them a new skid to stack on and most importantly how to keep my work area clean. The management wasn't the best because they were always making changes and some employees didn't like it but they never disrespected anyone there. The workplace was fun at times but its like most jobs it is what you make it and when your there you have to make ways to have fun while doing your job. The hardest part about the job is when your at work and have big orders during the summer times and the operators turn the machines up and its about 95 degrees outside and 105 degrees in the warehouse and your working at a steady pace the whole time. The most enjoyable part about the job is they have different sports you can join outside of work like basketball and co-ed softball so you can hang out with coworkers outside of work and have fun.
