3rd QTR Roundtable Discussion Q&A – Leads, Supervision & Industry Thoughts

Play

Hello all and Welcome to our next Episode of Warehouse and Operations as a Career, I’m Marty and I’m  pretty excited about today’s show as we’re going to have our 3rd Quarter Roundtable Discussion with several of our favorite go to people in the field.  We have John with us today, you’ll remember him as our Sourcing Company guru, he’s another one that started on the floor with a large foodservice concept distributor and now is the National V.P. of Operations with a large Sourcing and Logistics company.

John, how have you been, I guess the last time you were with us was for our mobile show in Arizona with the America Heart Associations Benefit Golf Tournament?

John –

And we have Rodrigo on the show again, Rodrigo is a Regional Facilities Manager and oversees several operations across the country.  Rodrigo I think we ran into each other in Lubbock like 3 weeks ago Right?

Rodrigo –

I was visiting with a newly promoted Supervisor and was fortunate enough to observe how you ran a Facility Site Visit, I enjoyed getting to tag along with you for a bit that day!

Rodrigo –

And Joe is with us, our Go to all things Safety guy! Joe when was the last visit from you, was it when I ran into you in Denver or did you join us with our recent 3rd Party Audits & Opportunities Show?

Joe –  

Joe teaches and instructs Safety to several teams and accounts across the country as well as manages several Opco’s himself.

And a Round Table just wouldn’t be a Round Table Discussion without Phillip calling in.  I’m going to try and get Phillip to speak to us about the hiring, training and the upstart of a new company in a bit. Phillip keeps us up to date with the different technologies available to us in the world of operations.  How have you been Sir, it’s been too long since you visited here with WAOC!

I was in traveling earlier this week, had a really good time visiting at two different facilities with a few very knowledgeable Sup’s and Managers. While setting and cruising the news feeds I came across an article from https://www.axios.com/teens-growing-up-slower-2486830574.html written by or attributed to Erica Pandey

Teens are becoming adults later than they used to

It states Teens are growing up more slowly than they did two decades ago, and today’s 18-year-olds act like the 15-year-olds of the 1990s, per a new study. Researchers found that U.S. teens are engaging in adult activities — drinking, driving, dating and working for pay — later than they used to, delaying the transition from adolescence into adulthood.

The takeaways:

  • 66% of 12th graders surveyed in 2014 had tried alcohol, compared to 81% in 1994
  • 73% of them had drivers’ licenses, down from 85% 20 years prior
  • 58% went on dates, compared to 83% of 12th graders in 1994
  • 56% worked for pay, down from 72% in 1994

I was speaking with a few gentlemen about the report I’d ran across and quickly figured out that some may have had different interpretations.  I’m thinking this is mostly a positive form of thought though.  I mean a 15% reduction in High School Seniors that’s tried alcohol is a move in the right direction right?  I myself know many young people that have put off getting their drivers permits too, they’re just not concerned with having to drive here or there like the earlier generation was, in my time we counted the days until we could get our licenses and hit the road.  Based on what friends that are parents are telling me I would have really thought that percentage would have been more than 12%.  I can’t speak to the dating statistic but that seems like a large reduction at 25%.  Now maybe the answers to these lower percentages can be found with the 16% fewer 12th graders having worked for pay?  I started working as a freshmen specifically so I could purchase a somewhat good vehicle and afford insurance once I could get my driver’s license.  Maybe there’s a correlation between jobs and what’s important to today’s youth.  A lot is different, I had to drive to a friend’s house to interact with them and others, today we can see, talk and interact from our rooms and houses.  I see most of these statics as positive.  I guess the question is, for us as Managers anyway, is how does this affect the workforce of tomorrow?

I guess that can be my first thought posed to you John, what do you think of those stats, are we heading in the right direction, how’s the industry doing and how far off base am I interpreting it ?

John –

Rodrigo what’s your thoughts on the subject, would you agree with any points either John or I made Sir?

Rodrigo –

Joe it’s not like you to be so quiet bub, I think I’m seeing a more focused culture regarding Safety in the work place, is it due to us as workers being more connected these days, with information right at our finger tips maybe?

Joe –  

Phillip you’ve got a situation going on right now, or a story about a young lead, I guess he’s actually been recently promoted to Supervision.  You’ve mentioned how you’re working with him and trying to help him with the new found responsibilities.  Have we hit on anything today you could relate to his struggling within the position?

Phillip –

Over the last few week’s WAOC’s been speaking to that very subject, Stepping into management, or that first lead or supervision role.  It’s a hard adjustment, I remember my first promotion and I wasn’t sure I was making the right move.  I was an hourly employee and putting in a fair amount of overtime each week, I was being offered a salary position and honestly it was going to fall a little short of my normal weekly pay so I felt like I had a lot to consider.  Fortunately I had a great boss and mentor and he helped me look at the bigger picture which was what I would be exposed too and what I could learn.  He’s actually where I got those phrases free education and self-education from, he taught me quite a bit over the years.  I had learned how to unload and load, Equipment wise I’d learned to operate the High Rise or cherry picker, sit down and standup forklifts and was a pretty good order selector with a tugger and electric pallet jack.  I was making top selector pay and knew the only way to get a raise from where I was at was going to be those salary positions and earn any bonuses offered.  Still it was hard to think of making 50 to a hundred dollars less a week.  Of course I learned real quick I had made the right decision, I was interested in my new job and was learning more about people and business.  Mentioning people, and I think it’s been brought up before, it was hard learning to separate my responsibilities from my friendships.  I now had to look at things from an expense and safety point of view and I understood a lot more about productivity and responsibilities.

Rodrigo, you work with several different teams, I know you’re constantly looking for talent, individuals you can lead to those next steps.  We’re always talking about the difference in a job, or that set wage and that career and to keep taking on more responsibility.  How’s the hunt, are you finding that hunger out there?

Rodrigo –

—–

Joe I’ve known you for quite a while, shoot through several positions and in a couple of different industries, production and distribution both.  You we’re definitely one of the hungry ones and you strived for excellence. Today you’re a strong manager and an accomplished Safety instructor with a CSHO certification.  What do you feel we’re seeing in the industry, is that hunger out there and what can we as managers and mentors do or what should we be doing to help?

JOE

——-

Phillip, your one that really spends time with new boots, you probably hire more men and women into our industry than the rest of us, can we do anything or what should we be doing to strengthen our young leaders?

Phillip – ——–

John I know you’ve been sitting back taking notes as we ramble on, share your thoughts and maybe tell us where you feel the industry is heading for us as young men and women looking for an industry we can grow and prosper in?

John –

———–

Men I’d once again like to thank you for taking the time to talk with us here at WAOC, I love these roundtables and hope each of you will do another one with me in about 13 weeks!

Joe –

Rodrigo –

Phillip –

I’ve received a couple more suggestions and topics, questions I guess on management paths and opportunities so we’ll look into those subjects, maybe I can get a few guest on the show that’s recently made the transition or taken that next step over the next few weeks.

Episode 52! Move Teams, Deployment Teams and Contingency Teams

Play

Well Welcome to Episode 52 of Warehouse and Operations as a Career!  I can’t believe it’s been a year now, and that we’ve dropped an episode every Thursday.  I’d like to thank you if you’ve been with us from the beginning and welcome you if you’ve just recently joined us.  We’ve had way too much fun these past 52 weeks and are really looking forward to the next 52.  All the email’s, questions, suggestions and topics sent in have been interesting and it’s so much fun to maybe help out where and if we can or have and at least share our thoughts with you.  And we’re appreciative of who’s listening in as well! We’ve had down loads and streaming in 20 – 25 Countries across the globe, here in the states California and Texas show up at the top list.  Several Safety organizations, Staffing agencies, Recruiters and Employers as well as those actually performing the many different tasks try and make it each week!  If you’d like your Country or County, maybe the Parish or City and Town mentioned shoot us an email and we’d be happy to give you a shout out, maybe we can start doing that each week!  When we started the Podcast it was for fun just to talk about a topic we loved and share our thoughts and experiences about the Operations industry.  As I’ve said I wouldn’t consider us experts on anything but we don’t mind sharing our opinions and maybe too much about our experiences in the worlds of warehousing and transportation.  This year we didn’t get into the transportation departments to deeply, we’ve just kind of taken the paths sent into us and tried to explain them a little along the way.  And what about our guest, I’d like to thank all of them for their time and participation, we’ve had some very knowledgeable people visiting with us and we’ve enjoyed their contribution to the group as well. If you’ve listened to our first few episodes I hope we’ve improved a little since then, at least audio wise.  Remember, we’re just Op’s people and what we know about audio things we’ve picked up this year and we hope we get a little better every episode.  Well that’s enough about our anniversary let’s get to this week’s thoughts I guess.

The words Deployment Team came up this week concerning an ad placed on some job board or social media group, looking for workers that could do some traveling and the pay looked very attractive.  I was asked if I knew anything about such and did I think it was a good idea to apply.

I’ve heard of Deployment Teams, Rollout Teams, Contingency Teams, and each company probably has other names for their individual purposes as each reason or need for such a group of workers can be quite different.  I think it’s safe to kind of broadly discuss their purposes at least I can share my experiences with them and what I’ve heard.  I’d suggest that you really discuss all the expectations, rules and pay structure with the person that’s offering the job though as your making a commitment here and there could even be penalties of some sort if we don’t hold up to our part of the bargain.

The first thing I think of are like move teams.  Our employer may be opening a new facility in another state and may need order selectors, forklift drivers, unloaders, loaders, sanitation associates etc. to go out and spend a week or so to train the new hires their procedures, processes and how to actually perform their new jobs.  It’s fun to get out of town and show others what we know and teach them about our company.  Our company would put us up in a hotel and of course our regular meals are usually taken care of, either catered or purchased for us.  All our transportation is taken care of, pretty much all our daily needs are provided for with the exception of snacks and extra beverages, I’m sure you understand what I mean!  We’ll typically be paid a set amount over and above our regular hourly wages or our hourly wage could be increased by anywhere from 3 to 5 dollars an hour to compensate us for being away from home.  I always enjoyed being on the move team and had the honor of leading a couple of them as well.  I feel it’s a great opportunity and we should go for it when offered.

There’s also offerings like a deployment team or contingency team, again these are something our employer may utilize for disasters or when a sister company needs immediate assistance bring in or shipping out its product. With these types of offerings, we may be asked to make a commitment that we are willing to leave town on short notice should an event come up within the company.  I’ve known individuals on teams for like 5 years and was never deployed, nothing ever came up but their organization had a plan and luckily just never had to use it.  Usually our management team will be looking for individuals that can perform several different functions as once the team arrives on site we never know what may need to be done.  If we can Load, Unload and Order select we’d be a prime candidate for such a team.  Sanitation and Running pallets is another skill set usually needed for these types of teams.  Being proficient at both a Standup Forklift, reach lift and a counterbalance or sit-down lift could be a need also.

There are those that can make a job from working for these teams too.  I know a few people that may do some work on the side that they really enjoy such as building fencing, concrete work, one gentleman owns his own landscape business, has contacts in the warehousing industry and offers to go, he’s been on enough rollouts or deployments that he has ran teams for a couple of different companies.  Now we’re talking about quite a bit of experience with the individuals, from general labor, sanitation, order selecting and forklift operators, they were some of the best in the fields but wanted to venture out in their own businesses and now warehouse as a second profession I guess you could say.

I mentioned earlier that these teams can pay pretty well and yes most all of the expenses are covered but I’d only be speaking to half the story if I didn’t mention the commitment and work is hard, can be long hours and being away from our homes isn’t really for everyone.  Then again, getting away from our regular daily grind can even be relaxing in a way I guess.  I always enjoyed the teams, and of course the monies can be nice too.  If all the above can fit into your lifestyle and you can truly make the commitment, being part of such a team will give us a wealth of experiences and will without get us noticed by our Management, not to mention the great people we’ll meet along the way, many times contacts we’ll run across later in our careers!

We’ll that’s a little on kind of a different segment or position in the industry, again were talking very broadly and I strongly suggest if offered or approached to join such a team that we ask questions and really understand the expectations, commitment and pay as each company and organization, even each job can be very different from each other or the last one!

As you may have picked up on, I loved working with the teams and I’d encourage you to check them out should you be offered the opportunity and can leave when the need arises or is offered.

Well that’s a brief summary of my experiences with things like a Deployment Team or whatever your company may refer to it as and I hope we answered the question of “think it’s a good idea apply”.  A shorter answer, or my personal opinion I guess may be certainly, ask questions, educate ourselves a little on the subject and go for it.  That’s what it’s all about right?

So, in closing our 52nd episode I’d again like to thank you for listening and ask that you share our show with your friends in the industry, Subscribe and maybe leave us a review if you have a moment.  We won’t try and sell you anything here, all us old Op’s guys have to share is a little experience and a lot of thoughts about light industrial positions.  Oh, and please Like our Facebook Page if you like the show and follow us on Twitter, we try and post as many job openings as we run across each week on our feed.  Your participation is where we get our idea for each episode and we enjoy hearing your thoughts and suggestions!

I know we push having a strong Safety Culture on you each week and I hope you understand as much fun as this career can offer it can be dangerous also, please follow your company’s procedures and keep Safety in mind, it’s really our most important task within our jobs!

Visiting with a New Supervisor & Observing a Site Visit with Rodrigo

Play

Hey everyone! Marty here with Warehouse and Operations as a Career.  I hope we’re all having a prosperous and productive week!  I made a quick trip out to Lubbock Texas this week to visit with a young Supervisor.  He’s doing a great job and is really interested in all his new duties, it’s so exciting to see that kind of enthusiasm and all his questions bubble to the surface.  His facility is about 180,00 sq ft and he’s overseeing a shift of about 15 associates.  He actually was promoted from the floor about a year ago and has been handling things like Interviewing candidates that his companies recruiting team sends over to him, scheduling the individual’s hours, reporting time to payroll and handling any day to day concerns and reporting them to his management team, kind of a strong Lead role.  As I said he’s doing a really good job, he’s been noticed by his manager who has asked that the reins be loosened a bit, he’s ready to give him a little more training and share a good deal more responsibilities with him.  I’ve been working with this young prospect for a while, he’s attended several different leadership classes and his company has invested the time and energy for him to recognize his potential and he’s ready to accept more, more information and more responsibilities, hence his promotion to a salaried Supervisor position.  I reviewed and presented some regulatory information to him and we reviewed the facilities different files, things like attendance rosters, it’s documentation regarding Safety Meetings, the Associates PIT certifications or the files on its Powered Industrial Training any equipment operators as well as the files on any Near Misses and Accident or Injury reporting.  It’s been a rewarding visit for me, I love helping the young and upcoming men and women within our industry, their excitement and enthusiasm is contagious and just filters through everyone on the shift.  We had another topic prepared to discuss this week but since we have recently been talking about getting noticed and had a few questions about the Supervisor role an opportunity presented itself today that we just shouldn’t pass up!  Rodrigo was actually here today performing a Site Visit, you all will remember Rodrigo from a couple of different episodes he’s been nice enough to share some of his thoughts with us on and he’s participated in both our 1st & 2nd quarter Roundtable discussions as well.

Rodrigo, what brought you to Lubbock Texas today?

RODRIGO –

So WAOC’s been talking about getting noticed by our management teams if we have any aspirations with a career in Management and in particular the warehouse lead and supervisor positions. Can you share your thoughts on those jobs with us Sir?

RODRIGO –

As I speak with potential candidates one thing that comes up really often is the interview process.  Some feel it’s too long and they’ve wasted their time and others are surprised by how in-depth the hiring agent is.  We here at WAOC believe, another one of my opinions I guess, that when we’re thorough with our work history and our equipment experience, we’re enthusiast and show our interest in the position with them we can cut a lot of the stress associated with an interview and cut the time spent on the interview in half.  Kind of try and lead the interview ourselves in a way.  What’s your thoughts on the interview process and how should us as young Supervisors be conducting an interview, what do you teach your new supervisors?

RODRIGO –

Another thing we’ve talked about recently regarding the Supervisor position is Organization and Time Management.  I personally feel these are two skills needed to be successful as a member of the management team.  Would you agree, and if so, how do you express that to new Leads and Supervisors coming from the floor?  How do you teach it?

RODRIGO –

You know, one of the hardest things to realize, especially if we’re coming from a position of doing or coming from the floor is how important deadlines are.  Wither its regarding a report we must turn in or having a certain number of cases pulled or loaded by a certain time each shift I find many of us tend to maybe not recognize the importance of it happening.  I think it could be hard for us because we know how to do those productivity tasks, we’re probably really good at them, that’s kind of been our mindset for a while.  In our new position, although, and I hope anyway, these deadlines and their importance have been explained to us, it’s new to us and it’s so easy, that human nature thing, that we stick with what we know.  We’ll need to push ourselves with this new thought process & just incorporate it into our timeline because they’re now a part of our Jobs.  Do you see new Managers struggling with accepting or meeting deadlines as their learning their new positions and how do you explain it to them?

RODRIGO –

What do you feel is the hardest part or greatest wall a new Lead or Supervisor has to overcome when coming from the floor or productivity position and stepping into management for the first time Sir?

RODRIGO –

Rodrigo I’d like to thank you for taking a couple of minutes with us here today, it was great observing you complete a Site Visit with your Customer and Team, I picked up more than a few pointers and had a good time Sir!

RODRIGO –

And we here at WAOC appreciate each of you, our listeners, for taking a few minutes with us.  I know the sound quality’s not the best when we’re out on the road but we hope you find the content interesting at least!  Please shoot us an email or comment and any suggestions or topics you’d like us to talk about, our email is host@warehouseandoperationsasacareer.com and we’d love to hear from you on our Twitter & Facebook feeds as well where we can be found @whseandops.

Until next week, lets speak up at our Safety Meetings, get noticed and inspire at least one person with a Safety thought this week, we all want to go home as we showed up today!

Do I want to be a Supervisor

Play

Warehouse and Operations as a Career with you here today, I’m Marty and I’d like to thank each of you for taking a few minutes with us again.  I’ve had a great time out on the road the last couple of weeks, very productive trips but it’s nice to be back home and getting caught up.  With our last two episodes we talked about getting noticed and how to best utilize our knowledge, which we gain at every shift we work, and communicate it to our supervisors.  I’d like to thank everyone that emailed and shared your thoughts, experiences and suggestions with us recently.  I’ve had a few people asking about the Supervisors role.  I was sent a couple of questions that came to their minds, and I felt they were valid questions so let’s talk a little bit about the position of Supervisor today.  Supervision, or any management role really, can seem challenging to us in the beginning.  Personally I feel two of the most important traits we’ll need to learn if we do not already possess them is Organization & Time Management Skills.  I’m not necessarily talking about multi-tasking, and by the way that’s a philosophy I strongly discourage, at least in our industry.  Anyway, with the additional duties we could be tasked with as Leads and Supervisors you’ll find that stopping and starting points, maybe checklists or task sheets will help us insure we get everything done and all the bases are covered.  Planning out our day regarding when things have to been done can insure we have the time to devote to each of our responsibilities.  Lead positions and Supervisor roles or their specific task are kind of difficult to wrap up into a nice little package as every warehouse and facility can be structured differently with an organizational chart that sometimes has so many branches to it that it seems almost confusing itself. Lets start with a definition: Merriam Webster explains to us that a Supervisor is:

one that supervisesespecially :  an administrative officer in charge of a business, government, or school unit or operation

when I checked out Supervises it states Supervises –

to be in charge of :  superintendoversee supervise a large staff supervised the ship’s daily operations.

Well theirs the definition, from a book anyway, so what does a Supervisor do in our world.  Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself, I kind of jumped off track again.  OK, lets look at the questions sent into us the last two weeks.  I received several variations of this one:  You speak a lot about being noticed and moving into management, why would I want to be a lead or supervisor? That’s a very good question & one I hear almost weekly in one form or another.  As I’ve spoken to before Operations has been very good to me over the last 38 years or so.  I feel it’s a great Industry and Career path for those of us that need to stay busy, that need to make money and have a check coming in each week and enjoy working in teams or around other people.  Yep, the work is hard, can be physically demanding and stressful even – when we’re taking our jobs serious.  Once we learn the mechanics of the warehouse, the general labor positions, and then the skilled jobs we’re unlimited regarding our advancement possibilities.  The more responsibilities we’ll take on, the more money we will make and the more opportunities that will be offered to us.  Want to be the President of your Distribution Center or Corporation, you can within this field, I’ve seen it done, honestly.  As a matter of fact, as we get a bit further into discussing mid management after the 4th quarter we’ll have a couple of guest that started on the floor and retired as Presidents and CEO’s of large distribution centers!

I always answer the question of Why would I want to be a Supervisor with because believe it or not you’re going to want to make more money, at some point the physical part of the job may become more than you’re interested in doing & I believe everyone wants to be challenged every so often.  Don’t get me wrong, I know fork drivers, order selectors and delivery drivers that love what they’re doing and been doing it for 30 years, they’ve made a great career doing it and I admire them for it.  They’ve taken care of the family & made a huge impact for their companies.  Many have retired and living a great life of retirement now.  But, if you enjoy responsibilities and want to be involved with making decisions, making and implementing change, the lead and supervisor positions is that first step.  I personally like challenges and I believe a sizable percentage of the young men and women in our industry does too.  Honestly, at least in my opinion, it’s just too easy not too.  Another plus is you get to help teach others, give them that education that others have given and shared with us, right?

The other question that comes up every week goes something like I’ve been offered a lead or supervisor position, do I have to take it or will I lose my job or be thought less of?  I know this is stressful, sometimes it may even take us by surprise.  We’re doing a great job at the position we have, we’re engaged with the company & participating with our teams. We’re doing everything right so naturally we’re on the company’s radar but we’re really enjoying what we do.  The answer is no, if you’re not ready for the responsibilities in my experiences you will not be singled out because you turn a promotion down at all.  Now our management team may work even closer with us going forward, teach us more and try and make us feel more comfortable with those concerns though.  They feel we’d be an asset, and the odds are their right.  You’re doing everything correctly, you’re a great employee, take the leap, no one’s going to let us fail, someone’s gone out on the limb with us, they’re going to give us the knowledge and tools to succeed!

So, let’s talk about Supervision for a minute.  In our world, it will mean more responsibilities.  Could be some things like setting up the shift, keeping up with rosters and attendance.  Maybe we’d need to assign orders to be pulled, or trucks to be loaded.  Quite possibly we could have some regulatory or safety procedures and processes handed off to us to oversee.  And of course, the biggest responsibility & most definitely the hardest part of the job will be the team, the employees, all those different personalities we’re now responsible for.  Yep, their livelihood and safety may fall under us now.  As with any promotion odds are you’ll think a bit differently about the positions you’re coming from.  A quick example, as an order selector you may know an associate, maybe even a friend that doesn’t always practice or follow every rule regarding his or her pallet jack.  As a peer or associate you may not have cared so much but now you may find yourself responsible for any injuries or damages and you’ll probably think a little differently about it.  You may be exposed to a much bigger picture now, understanding the effect of such actions to the team and company, shoot, you may even be incentivized on how well things run so you could have an entirely different outlook now.

If you’ve been following our show you’ve heard from all of our guest which has included Independent Drivers, Supervisors, Managers, Directors and a couple of different V.P.’s, all of them started on the warehouse floor as G/L, new to the industry and have grown through the ranks.  You know how I feel about Operations and how passionate I am about the Career opportunities that it can offer.  I believe it was John in episode 16 when we were discussing Temporary Staffing Agencies that pointed out the possible earning potentials within our industry.  Those 6 figure incomes are there, all one has to do is apply themselves to their position and learn from those willing to teach us.  You know I have to wrap up this thought by saying Warehouse and Operations is a great Career choice & just do it.  I’m certain you’re ready, if your already thinking about it, reach for it and make it so!  And us here at WAOC will help in any way we can, just send us a message to host@warehouseandoperationsasacareer.com and we’ll certainly share our experiences with you!

Management roles are not for everyone, it’s perfectly fine to enjoy a position or task & that can fit our lifestyle perfectly.  I believe we have to love our work, we’re going to do it our whole lives until we retire from the workforce.  But they will fit many of us, there just that next job or task for us.  Each new job has brought with it a little anxiety or the thought of the unknown.  A Lead or Supervisor role is nothing more, just another page in our lives!

I hope we’ve explained the roles a bit today & we look forward to hearing your thoughts on management as the opportunities are offered to each of you. If you have a few moments please check out our Twitter and Facebook feeds, you can find us @whseandops on both.  If you haven’t already please subscribe to the Podcast so you don’t miss any episodes each week!

As always have a great week ahead and let’s speak to a coworker about Safety or a Safety practice this week, who knows it could just save them or us from an injury!
