If you're a part timer, you will not gain respect from upper managers almost everyday!
Picking-mini-load (Current Employee) – Akron, OH – December 7, 2018
I am a current 5:30 am picker here. On this shift the main manager comes in about 3.5 hours into it, ( Maybe two times an week) and relies on the team picking leads, to just enter our production totals about every 40 minutes, the PICKING lead likes to sit during most of that time, and do computer work( looking busy most of the time). There are many breakdowns of the crane that sends all the orders to us in our cells, to pick. One picker does work harder than most and puts on a harness, that should be the leads duty to fix a crane, but as I said the more you do, the more advantage they take!(Some days it stops running,making our numbers look a lot worse than they are,( you should be near a 70% rate ) Some lines have easier picks than the others, but the team lead can manipulate what picks we get? Of course they will take advantage of the few pickers on their lines that do more than others, and the ones who show up daily on time to do their job, verse the others on the shifts they work on! They go home early, no-shows
I see many of the part-timers they hire in on other shifts and even in other departments, that come in around my last hour of working, and quit sometimes the next day, or in a few weeks, they do get a lot of bums here trying to get easy money, clocking in late, by barley just getting by. It takes a team-effort as a picker, but many are lazy, immature, or rely on the other pickers to do all the extra side work. But, still have the gumption to try and talk smack behind their backs, for actually doing what it takes to get a job done, during our hours...
I like the 5:30 A.M start time
Hard workers get taken advantage of, no tow motor training chances as promised!
