I have definitely grown as a leader and been strengthened in the area of management, but advancement can take a long time.
Tactical Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) – Hodgkins, IL – January 14, 2017
When I arrive, I go to the meeting with my full time supervisor. He goes over the previous days/weeks numbers and our goals for the day. After the meeting, we go out to the floor, make sure we have all the trailers/equipment we need, make sure that we clock our package handlers in as they arrive. Throughout the 4 to 5 hour sort span, it is a high intensity environment. My management team and I ensure that our employees are working safely with a sense of urgency, making sure that every single package is sorted and loaded into the trailer of its proper destination. At the end of the sort, we had to make sure everything all equipment is stored and put back in it's a appropriate place, make sure that all trailers left on time to make their appropriate trains, ensure that all of our employees were paid properly, leave the work area clean leaving no packages or garbage on the floors and gratings, and turn in our daily paperwork to full time supervisor.
Great benefits, leadership building and team building skills
Limited power when it comes to discipline to hourly employees; severely underpaid
