Warehouse Assistant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 23 September 2013
. My typical day at work is slow, the receiver got to scan every box one by one with its scanner and put a label on it and place it on a pallet afterwards.
. I didn't learn anything new. What I am doing now is basically the same of what I did in the past ware housing jobs.
. The management at the work place is not good at all. They receive more then they can handle in a 8 hour shift. There is always a day or two of work that they get on one day. The company should hire more receivers to get the work done more faster.
.For the co-workers, they only care about themselves and not the lumbers (helpers) that help them to unload trucks. sometimes the co-workers take over an hour to do a pallet, they start doing it and they do something else for a whiles and come back to it.
. The hardest part of the job is sometimes patience for when the receiver is not there. I can not get the job done without the receiver.
.The most enjoyable part of the job is when there is only one or a few orders on a pallet. It gets done very fast.
free lunch every now and then, Done work early on some days
The reciever goes away, I can not get the work done. messy outside the building, slow paste
