    Pros

    -not being cooped up in an office!
    -change of scenery
    -physical exercise
    -flexible schedule to an extent

    Cons

    -many shipping bins are badly cracked and pose potential injury!
    -kind of low pay
    -store personnel can be quite rude
    -magazine totes are WAY more than 30lbs!
    -certain store shipments aren't consistent

    Advice to Management

    I would say my number one suggestion to management is making SURE that when mags are packed at warehouse, that those bins/ totes are 1/2-3/4 full! AND not cracked in several places posing potential for injury! In training video it was stated that bins would be about 20- 30lb. max, however that is only the case about 20% of the time. I've had bins come in that were literally bulging at the top even though bin was sealed shut.
      I've also had MANY stores receive mags that have been thrown in so they're ripped and badly creased; some have been literally mangled by a sorter or something, having to send back/ throw out 50% of new mag title received; and then some weekly mags don't come in at all even though shipment was received. Is there no QC to stop this?
      The solution seems like it may be fairly simple- make training standard across the board...
