Work in a shipping and receiving department that's can be a physically demanding job. I specifically load freight or merchandise inside trailers and make sure they are secured and ready for transit. The shipments vary from size, shapes, and weight, so I have to figure out a way to have certain shipments to fit inside the trailers. overall a typical day at work, is to work safely which is our overall concern of working. What I learned at Fedex Freight is that, on time delivery is very crucial to us, and the time frame we have is very limited, Ive learned to work smarter and not harder and not defeating the purpose when it comes to loading. for instance if a pub trailer (which is a small trailer) is full of carpet roll materials that are laid on the floor of trailer, and I have to make 8 pallet shipments fit in there. that problem can be solved by building a deck (which is a table) to place on top of the carpets without damaging them, or the 8 pallets. Management wise is a bit difficult not everyone is eager to be cooperative however the job gets done. the co-workers have a willing attitude such as "lets get it done attitude," and I for my part have adopted that attitude. The Hardest part of the job is figuring out how to make a lot of the shipments fit inside the trailer but also making sure it is secured in the right way! The most enjoyable part of my job is that the merchandise was loaded safely and when it arrives at another terminal the employee there can unload it safely, and it will be delivered safely to a happy customer whose shipment was arrived on time!
