A Typical Workday consists of running my route, running all stores which may have load drops or as a back stock day, cleaning up backroom condensing and keeping it organized and keeping all the stores happy with my work on a day to day basis. Additionally, helping account managers with orders when needed, communicating to account managers about any changes, communicating to them for any special orders that is requested for them to bring in for the next load.
What I learned is how the merchandising and vendor industry works, how to operate professionally use powered pallet jacks, and forklift, all in backroom receiving, and keeping good communication with all the stores managers.
The hardest part about the job is holiday season with high amounts of volume as well as the double hits.
The most enjoyable part of my job is not being in a traditional workplace setting, only time when i see or am i need of co-worker is when we are both picking up and extra store or when one of us are behind, and in need of someone to help run a store on route and same visa-versa.
flexibility in working your route, and lunch ability
