fast enviroment and lots to do, as well as great hard working people
Record Center Specialist (Former Employee), Edmonton Alberta – November 12, 2014
Pros: end of quarter bonuses / free lunches
Cons: lots of temporary workers, lack of space, over packed boxes
-inbound up to 1500 packs of paper( loans, mortgages ect.) -label and organize these bundles into sections of the warehouse that they will be getting put away. -Fine sort the bundles into more detailed piles for easy put away. It could be back logged days that i would be sorting. - If put on the task of doing "file put away" i would scan one paper at a time from a sorted bundle to the correct unit and shelf and proceed to find the file the bundle of paper belongs to and put it in. I would continue to repeat theses steps till the alotted time for the task was up. Minimal communication due to consantration. Our department was also responsible for checking rush orders or half day orders which requires checking the system every 10- 15 minutes. It was also our responsibility to go pull the order which could be files or boxes. I also put away and pulled boxes from assigned locations which weighed up to 50lbs. I learned how to use the specialized computer program to the fullest of my abilities, as well as hand scanners and label printing machines. I was very close with a few of my older co workers who were very supportive with my wanting to learn and grow within the company. I loved the job mostly for the independant working but as well how close of a team we were and always excelled as a team. The hardest part of this job was having to put 50lbs + boxes away in very high parts of the warehouses.
