Pros: friendly atmosphere, helpful associates
Cons: often unreasonable time constraints, infrequent breaks or lunches
The job was pretty straight-forward and easy to handle. Learning to read the labels and identify aisle numbers and locations proved relatively simple, though training and explanation of this was limited. For the most part I had little to no interaction with the store manager/ assistant manager, relying almost completely on the Freight Team Lead. My co-workers were friendly and helpful, easy to get along with, and assisted with any training that was not provided. The hardest part of this job was the speed required by management, with almost no regard for the actual amount of time required to work the truck, resulting in many shifts that were scheduled to end at 10:30am, running until 1:30 or 2 pm. The most enjoyable part of the job was how quickly my fellow associates and myself would step in to help other associates complete their tasks.
