"Warehouse managers need to combine their safety knowledge, understanding of warehouse operations, and leadership skills to manage the receipt, storage, and shipping of goods. Expect questions about any prior management or other leadership positions you have held, your experience in a warehouse environment, and your knowledge of applicable health and safety guidelines. Additionally, prepare to answer technical questions about inventory tracking software and behavioral questions about how you would handle potential conflicts that may occur during day-to-day operations."
I was asked what would I do under two circumstances. 1) If equipment went down. 2) If an employee threatened to quit or quit.
1) I would first understand what equipment is essential to production, what replacement parts are available, what is the current maintenance schedule and is there any process in place to continue production until the equipment is up and running again. 2) I intend to address the team working for me as a group and then individually to understand each individuals needs and issues. I intended to cross train each employee in all required jobs and if deemed necessary, look to interview prospective employees so we have someone in mind that can come in as quickly as possible.
