My typical day is coming in and checking emails, and looking for any rush orders or issues that may have occurred the night before. If there are events that have happened I process everything and gather all information needed to get the project on the schedule.
If there is not, I continue from the prior days estimates and projects events. Some of the obstacles that I may face is waiting on other employees to get me the information I need to do my job. The most enjoyable part of my job, is I know I am getting another company up and running again, or keeping them running.
Benefits are not great, I only get 2 weeks paid vacation, no sick time, or personal time. We do not get raises or evaluations every year.
