What I wish was different
This facility had a lot of changes that happened while I was employed there. Basically, the entire system of how packages are store changed and it was really frustrating to a lot of the employees. The new system consisted of a higher layout which was completely out of a safe range of lifting. This made a lot of employees have to use step stools in order to safely reach the new layout - which caused a very big safety problem. The managers did not seem concerned with this. It also drove our numbers down significantly. Another thing that I wish had been different was the way employees were trained. We shadowed an employee for about an hour and then were off on our own and that is all we were taught. Also, communication between management was always a problem. One manager would tell you one thing and the next one would tell you the complete opposite. It was hard to know who to listen too.
