Established company going through leadership challenges
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 June 2015
I enjoyed my time at DB Schenker. First class benefit programs, really care for their employees. Unfortunately, they lack skilled management in certain areas, which has lead to large employee turnover.
A typical day would include a quick operations overview from the previous supervisor, then reviewing the expected volumes for the shift, and determining resources required to accomplish the set targets.
After shift briefing with employees, make sure everyone had all required equipment to complete their tasks, and move into any training that was required. Periodically, inspect out bound work for accuracy and balance.
My employees were the best part of the job. Doing whatever I could to make their lives better, was important to me.
Refridgerated, and freezer work environment.
