stressful place to work, not enough manpower
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Rumford, ME – March 18, 2016
My job was to follow all customer orders, from the time they entered our system, until the customer received their order. I was in constant communication with all hourly production personnel, to ensure the right product was being manufactured. I was also in charge of the Shipping personnel to ensure the right vehicles were loaded, on time. I would schedule trims on the salvage winders to cover shortages on orders. I worked with customer service reps in Ohio, to expedite orders or replace damaged product. I was the shift supervisor for the Shipping dept. in charge of crew meetings, time cards, safety talks, etc.
I learned a lot of computer skills, keeping track of records for my crew. I had to file Hyster safety sheets, and crane safety sheets, each day.
I loved working with the hourly people, they worked as a team with me. Every day we would brainstorm ideas to accomplish our goals.
The hardest part of the job was working with limited staffing. There were no extra people, so we worked short handed, in the event of a call out. There were also limited vehicles to load. The yard would be full of trailers, but the ones for critical loads,that needed to ship right away, would not be available.
A dedicated work force
Lack of resources to accomplish the job.
