Simple work, but demanding hours
Receiving, Inspecting, Processing (RIP) Technician (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – 5 March 2017
The Receiving, Inspecting, and Processing Technician position was a fairly simple job to do, but the hours at the business were very demanding. Weeks tended to be 50-60 hours and had been like that for months. On top of a personal 40 minute one way drive to get to work, it was incredibly exhausting.
A typical day at work was inspecting phones and tablets, using a simple to understand computer questionnaire about possible defects, and determining if the product was good for resale or not. Entire job took place at a standing desk, although chairs were being given out right as I voluntarily left so that I could finish my Bachelor's degree, although they tended to hinder more than they helped, due to the desk size.
Managers I dealt with were extremely friendly and very willing to assist with any and all problems. Probably some of the best people I've worked for. They could be professional and personal at the same time, striking a good balance of being your boss, but also your friend. Someone who was there to help you and take care of you.
Hardest part of the job was honestly just the hours. There was very little movement for where I was stationed, so the long hours tended to give me leg and lower back pains from lack of movement.
