The distribution operation faces an array of daily challenges that continue to plague the operation on a very cyclic basis.
Due to a consistent, significant, and unfortunate turnover of the management staff; failed solutions and ideas are passed to and recycled through each round of new management.
Management struggles to understand, recognize, accept and implement the very basic fundamentals of warehousing, distribution and logistics operations.
In addition to the management staff; there is also a high turnover rate of the hourly workforce. Hourly associates are willing and capable to perform as a highly productive and efficient team, IF they are provided clear and defined goals and expectations.
Due to a lack of consistent and clear direction communicated from the management staff, and the repetitive nature of the same operational issues and implementation of the same failed solutions, employee morale is poor, and the hourly workforce exhibits an attitude of disillusionment and discontent.
Due to the lack of operational understanding and lack of direction; work-life balance is non-existent.
Work environment is filthy.
