Challenging place to work. Able to watch movies in the lunchroom during lunch breaks.
Pros: very little supervision, being trusted, having a day off if needed without any questions.
Cons: dealing with the garbage, having to pay to park
Typical day for me at Staples, take the garbage down to the loading dock area, usually 3 trips as cardboard had to be separate from the garbage. Answer phones from clients looking for on-line orders, greet drivers with incoming shipments, filing, maintaining a clean warehouse, to secure all cages end of the day.
Learned to have a lot of patience with – more... unpleasant drivers, screaming customers looking for orders.
My direct manager always helpful, understanding, allowed me to handle things for my own dept.
Did not have a big opportunity to mingle with co-workers as I was separated from the store, but did have some great friends upon leaving.
There was not anything hard about my position I could not handle without thinking about it first.
Most enjoyable part of the job, having all the merchandise ready to go the floor at the end of the day, usually met all deadlines, with exception of heavy days of delivery. Helping customers with their orders, having the friends I do. – less
