When coming to work expect the unexpected never assume what you're going to do cause they always have a plan for you never assume that you're going to get off every night at the same time cause depending on the work means different time and different hours the job pay is good long as you working well and get your job tasks done in a timely fashion.

From 8am until 1pm we unload all inbound trucks. then we go to lunch. After lunch we start screening all cargo that needs to be screened. then we shrink wrap and put security tape on them.
I think it is a good job but there is no room for advancement and no raises in the future. It makes it tough to go to work day in and day out.
Pros
it was a good work place with good co-workers
Cons
it was way to much work for 2 people. you need at least 3 people in the warehouse

I start my day at 5:00 a.m. each morning at kuehne and nagel picking orders for leximark and dell printers. we conduct a meeting to discuss our work load for the day and then we report to our forklifts to start a 12 hour journey. My managers are cool. As long as you are working, the bosses dont bother you. If u get caught loafing on the job, its a problem. The hardest part of my job is making sure my orders are picked correctly and to the fullest. The most enjoyable part of my job is my co-workers. We compete to see who gets the biggest orders and who picks them the fastest. Most of the time I win. But we still laugh and go on about our day.
Pros
pay, the ability to meet new people, and work at your own pace.
Cons
short breaks and sometimes 18 hour work days

Typical day load and unload truck. Management was great, co-workers worked as a team. The hardest thing about the job was it was a part time job and was hoping to get full time work. I enjoyed the opportunities of moving up.
