A typical day for me begins during the early morning hours. Each day before an inventory, I gather all items needed to manage an inventory. Depending on the store type, that will determine the amount of counters I will be needing to complete that specific store. I am responsible for making sure all equipment (terminals, laptop, printer, ladders, etc.) are available and in proper working order.
I have learned to be even more patient with new employees, as they have not done this type of work before. I am responsible for ensuring that those employees are properly trained and understand each stores specific way of how their inventories should be ran.
Management listens to Supervisors (which I currently am) as we come to them with concerns in regards to the flow of jobs, the counters assigned to us for a specific job, etc.
My current co-workers are very motivated individuals and all have their own unique personality. Team morale is a big portion to this job & to other jobs that may be more difficult.
The hardest part of the job are the hours that are scheduled. Most inventories that are scheduled start at 5 a.m. or 6 a.m. That means that we're leaving the office between 2-4 a.m. depending on the distance.
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know different District Managers, Store managers, their staff & their customers.
