Sales and goal driven environment
Safety Coordinator (Current Employee) – Springfield, MO – July 11, 2013
The things I enjoy most about this job are often the same thing as what I like least. It is definitely a challenging atmosphere, and the only way to succeed is to continue to push yourself to learn and do more. At the same time, the reason it is this way is there is a constant shortage of employees. On any given day, I might start in the office but quickly have to stop everything I'm doing to go make a delivery or run the warehouse while Warehouse Manager makes a delivery.
Probably the thing I like least is how often the days plans get changed in an effort to satisfy a customers needs while balancing not having a properly staffed delivery team. However, I enjoy knowing that I and my co-workers will do anything we can to get the job done, and branch manager is there to help as often as possible. Being a department manager for two years has taught me a lot about people and myself, and I constantly seek ways to improve myself and my company in whatever ways possible.
There are three of us who have worked together at this branch for almost nine years, and the camaraderie we share is great. We often know what the other is thinking or needing without having to communicate it, but our ability to communicate with each other is excellent as well.
challenging; thrives on organization;
severe understaffing, sometimes incredibly long hours, company seems to need an ee to sacrifice personal life to advance career
