I would supervise others, (as well as perform these same tasks myself), as they built skids with specific produce for specific stores, and loading what they had staged when the trucks arrived. I would co-ordinate with the other building to ensure that we received the products necessary for that shift's trucks. I would use the computer to co-ordinate the shift's workload, ship trucks out, print BOL's (Bills of Lading), Pick Tickets, some customs paperwork as needed, etc. This was a very fast-paced environment to work in. My co-workers were, for the most part, easy to work with. The manager 2 rungs above me was almost impossible to please. The hardest part of the job was when when all the trucks seemed to arrive at the same time, (some being late, some early, etc.), and they didn't want any trucks to leave late. The most enjoyable part of the job was when everything got out on time and we actually had all the products on hand that we needed to dispatch these trucks. I learned all about working in a greenhouse/warehouse environment, and the difference between mini-bell peppers and rustico peppers, etc. I also learned how to run a loading dock, work with other departments, such as re-pack, where they prepared the products that we were to load, how to work with trucking companies, truckers, etc. I also learned much about regulations with cross - border trucking. That was enjoyable to learn as well.
the job entailed driving forklifts, which i always have enjoyed doing.
sometimes the hours were too long, and they expected one person to perform at an almost superhuman level.
