Pros: sometimes there would be a period of waiting on orders, products had to meet a certain deadline, finishing up orders from the shift earlier, and finishing the workload for the current shift, keep you area neat and clean at all times, teamwork was a must
Cons: two fifteen minute breaks was offered and a thirty minute lunch in a eight hour shift, unless mandatory overtime was in effect.
This was a hands on job that required a lot of standing for the duration of the shift, with training of what was required of the job. It was a basically stand still job of hand making of boxes, inserts and placing DVDs into those inserts and placed in hand made built cubes on a line for packaging and shipment. I also did some scanning and weighing of – more... pre packaged items to be finished packaged with bubble wrap and a detailed invoice of the items to be sent, some of those packages were international shipments that had to be labeled as well. I also did some scanning of barcodes of waves to locate different DVDs in different locations of the warehouse or was given a specific location to finds those products. A typical day at the warehouse was quite a learning experience and was not to demanding and the supervisors was good at their jobs of training. I can say that these jobs that I had encountered was not a hard task at all, quite easy, but the downfall of it all was the standing. – less
