Materials/Logistics manager interview questions shared by candidates
give an example of an issue that came up and your solution to it.
I worked for Smurfit-Stone container at the time and we were a union facility. All weekend OT had to be notified to hourly employees on Thursday no later than 3pm. It was a Friday and we got slammed by a certain customer with hot orders that needed to be shipped by Monday morning, this would require a Saturday work be scheduled. However we didnt get a posting up by Thursday's deadline. I requested that we ask the corporate office if there were enough funds to ask for volunteers to work and give a reward to those who volunteered. The reward was in the form of $25.00 gift cards. We were able to get enough volunteers to run a 2 shift day and get out what the customer was in need of. It was a win-win situation for all involved. Success!
