Pros: learned basic automotive supplier operations, worked with many good, competent people.
Cons: little appreciation, (some in management who had no inkling of empathy), relatively low pay, unusual and sometimes illogical demands.
A typical day/night ran 9-10 hours at least. There were good opportunities to learn JIT shipping, including daily transmission of ASN's and EDI correspondence, as well as seeing the way the automotive world operates. The initial management was very competent but that was reversed upon his departure and ultimate replacement by a foreigner. Most of the – more... co-workers and workers in general were capable but there was no loyalty. Probably 90% of the workers preferred to be working somewhere else. The toughest part was the sometimes illogical demands and the tendency to unnecessarily make a relatively simple job more difficult than it should have been. The best part was working around some good people and getting the job done in spite of upper management. – less
