Pros: its a job
Cons: it stinks
I worked in the warehouse, order filling department, and the receiving department. I loved working in the receiving department, that was fun. For order filling I worked my tail off to get the most orders filled acuratly in the least amount of time and received compensation up to $13.50 (highest paying job I received in my life so far). Until I turned a corner too fast and twisted my knee. I was put on light duty and given a task with little tools to do the job. I did an excellent job with the tools that I had, but was told it was taking too long, I seeked help from maintenance for better supplies to do my job faster and then was told it wasn't good enough. Then my supervisor asked if I took the job seriously and I was furious! He knew from the time I began there till the time I ended that I was constantly improving my work. Going faster, working harder, becoming relied on for various warehouse duties, thinking smarter. I even came up with ideas that he implemented to make the order filling to other store departments faster. He took all the credit for my idea however and did not acknowledge it to his boss. In the beginning of this job we received free benefits! By the end they have taken our free benefits away and charged us for our chosen benefits, making it the least paying warehouse job in Cheyenne. Lowes and Walmart distribution make more money starting. Typical day, repetitive! Pick up order, grab order items, put in cart, send cart to shipping. repeat. I moved to receiving for a while and I loved it! At least I got to use my brain more in receiving and even improved my receiving scores! However the economy hit and I had to take my job back in order filling (which also explains the lost benefits).
