    Former Employee - Warehouse Employee in Miami, FL
    Former Employee - Warehouse Employee in Miami, FL

    I worked at Miami Dade County full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    great benefits, paid vacation and sick leave, medical and dental insurance.

    Cons

    where I worked the warehouse was very behind in technological improvements i.e. no inventory or warehouse management systems. not even bar code scanner or a inventory locator system. Currently there are using hand written inventory cards for a inventory valued at over $2 million.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire knowledgeable senior management that can make advancements in warehouse / inventory management technologies i.e. computers, hardware, software, bar code scanners, inventory locators etc..

    I have been working at Miami Dade County part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Putting something impressive on your resume, meeting interesting people, opportunity to apply for open positions inside department.

    Cons

    upper management does not care about you.
    during the 2008 economy crash they placed unrealistic job performance expectations on staff .
    working in a dusty, dirty environment and dealing with odd homeless populations.
    Middle managers lack people skills, are rude, and micro managers.
    so much bureaucracy that nothing productive ever gets done or takes a very long time to get done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect all staff and hire middle managers and staff that work well with each other, that have college education, people skills and are not sour apples.
