Ware House Associate, Columbus, OH - April 18, 2015
A typical day at Yenkin was getting my scanner and downloading before meeting with the supervisor, which consisted of safety topics, work for that day, and we also did pre-work stretching. Then we do pre-trip inspections on our lifts then begin picking, loading, unloading, and filling out pallet labels, shipping paper work, and clean designated area at end of shift. Here I got a more understanding of the shipping, and receiving business, because I got to do almost everything involved in it. From loading, unloading trucks, replenishing empty bays, understanding bill of ladens, and the other paper work we had to fill out. Learned a older version of scanner process also. Management was respectful, and grateful for the hard work we done.We had company lunches and dinners on numerous occasions, quarterly bonuses, attendance bonuses, yearly work boot allowance, and at the end of the year we got a Christmas bonus. Those were some of the ways they showed there appreciation. I got along with mostly everyone. They were really big on changing the culture there, to make it a more comfortable place to work. Hardest part of the job, was adjusting to their picking processes, because I was used to Wi-Fi scanners, and blu-tooth voice commands, but I learned it, and became arguably the top picker in the warehouse. Most enjoyable part was some of my crew members, we worked well together, and was very respectful to each other, and the way management showed they're appreciation was priceless. Definitely makes the day go smoother when stress level is down, and you work for and around people who care.
