Pros: free transportation
Cons: short to no breaks, short hours, hours are ridiculous (at night or very early in the morning)
My typical day at work would start with my supervisor (who picks me up) so that I can help him set up the equipment necessary to start the job. The scanners, laptop, and printer are all set up when our work crew arrives. I learned how to interact with my coworkers very easily.
The hardest part of the job is to consistently stay on top of the game, and – more... I would be the best counter on the crew at every inventory job, which is why my supervisor constantly loved me to be at his jobs around Chicago (and wanted to promote me to become a manager / supervisor soon).
The most enjoyable part of the job was to interact with the coworkers and make myself look good in front of others by the amount of work that I did on that day. Every job, I look at the scanner to make sure I am rank 1 compared to the 20 others who are counting inventory as well. Knowing that I am rank 1 made me work harder and made me enjoy my job. – less
