typical day at work is getting there before the break of dawn. It was hard at first when you were use to getting to work at 9 in the morning. So start of my day is running a few reports and reviewing them to see what items need to be distributed before certain deadlines are passed due.
What I learned from this is not always black and white when it come to distributing any kind of parts for a light fixture or bath accessories. I had to think outside of the box when it comes to parts that are not the same color, finishes, or complete set when received from the vendor. I had to rely on the artisans to either make the part(s) or find relic pieces that I can salvage. And this happens on a daily basis.
What to say about management? Very little management. Most of the management is rely on the production and deadlines goals we have to strive for to make the customer happy.
The co-workers are awesome. They are true artisan who can make things happen. Although some of them are hard to understand due language barrier. It took me some time to understand them and adapt to the surrounding. They can get on your nerves at times.
The hardest part of the job was learning the different part sku's and know the different types of metal finishes for the light fixture or bath accessories. it wasn't easy to tell the difference of certain metals when they almost look the same. Also there is no systematic to reference. There is only a picture of the complete fixture or bath accessories on the company website.
Enjoyable part of the job is the total silence from the intercom speakers in the company. All day, everyday, the intercoms are always blaring with someone shouting at someone to pickup the phone, go down to a certain floor or for the elevator. So this is where the cardio come in. At peak hours you won't be able to use the elevator. The stairs will be your friend. .
