If you make it through the warm orientation and are choosen to work in shipping... DON'T you will regret it! Going in I already stated to the hiring recruiter that I knew I wasn't cut out for shipping based on previous jobs working in that department. But I knew they were already short staffed in shipping so I said heck why not start off while my foot is in the door and show that I'm a good worker. Thinking that if I stayed and at least made it through peak season there would for sure be openings for a department I would be much more suitable for and could excel...I was WRONG! I made it past the probationary period and was hired in and yet there wasn't any chance in sight of moving departments. So naturally I'm going to become frustrated, I already didn't like shipping from the jump, I'm exhausted from OT from peak and any concerns I brought forth to a "coach" or HR of my dwindling ability to carry on has mostly been ignored. Meanwhile im starting to understand why there seems to be a perpetual state of being under staffed. They expect too much, too fast from new employees so people tend to call off or leave early and that piles more work on other employees and they call off and leave early and the can is always being kicked down the road. So people eventually quit or point out, I've literally seen hoards of people in and out of shipping in the short amount of time I was there. It's madness!!!
Money isn't always the leading incentive and motivating factor to retaining employees, but both money and ones general happiness is.
