My Warehouse Work Experiences

In my city jobs were a little hard to come by if you didn't have connections, well good paying jobs that is. And where I live, it is a factory and warehouse based city, yea they do have good paying jobs here but the majority of the jobs where in the warehouse. When I first graduated from high school, I went back to my birth place which was New York City to spend the summer. I had a great time in New York, but when It was time for me to come back I had to make sure I had some income coming in. The good thing was at least I had a car and no car note at the time, everything is so spread out that you have to have a car to get back and forth to work or even if you needed to go to the store.

So when I got back I started college and I was looking for something part time, the first job I got was at fed ex. That is the first warehouse job that I had, I didn't like going in late in the evening and getting to the house around 12 am in the morning, then waking back up going to school. Working at fed ex was not a long shift job, but for the time that we did come in they worked us so hard everyone was very tired when we finally clocked out. I worked outside so we had to deal with all weather conditions, it was really tough in the winter time and another thing that used to get to me was the plane fums that would get blasted in my face. Those chemicals would really make me cough and have problems breathing, but I had to just deal with it for the time being.

I was working at fed ex for a little over a year, but one day as I was riding home my chest began to tighten up and it was hard for me to breathe. I felt myself blacking out so I hurried up and pulled over to the first gas station that I saw, I sat there for a minute and was trying to catch my breathe. When I came back in good spirits, I went in the gas station and got me some water and continued on the way home. I went to the doctor and found out that I had some inflammatory problems in my chest. From then on I was constantly having these problems, I was working out like crazy at the time and I couldn't even lift the weights that I wanted to lift because I would feel my chest tightening up. So being that fed ex was not working out in my favor, because of the issues I was having at the time, I went on ahead and quit and was just attending school.

I needed to find some work that wasn't very physical, so I went to a temp service and got a job at a dvd packing facility. The work was not hard in this warehouse but the hours were long and the pay was little. This is the second warehouse that I had worked at that I really started to see what a real warehouse environment was. I didn't know but I was in for a ride that I was not expecting, I began coming in contact with some of the craziest personalities I have ever seen in my life. Every day I was laughing at something that was going on, or I would have some women that was constantly flirting with me like never before. The women were so bold in this warehouse, it was actually unbelievable the things that they were saying to me. All I could do is shake my head and laugh at the things a lot of women were bold enough to say.

I saw a little drama at this warehouse, but it was mainly drama between the women that I saw. You would walk around and see the bad vibes some women had towards each other, I mean they would be staring each other down and saying slick things out loud just so the other could hear them. Next thing you know they would be out there fighting, obviously they would get fired but it was crazy to me seeing all this going on in that warehouse. I worked there for a few months, but then they started having me waste gas coming up there because they would turn us around. I got tired of them turning me around and I got in contact with someone else I knew that worked at the same warehouse and he told me to just come over there.

It was with the same company, so I basically just had to come over there and say that the temp place sent me over to begin working with them. I got by with that and began working at this new location, I came in everyday on time and didn't have to worry about them making me waste gas just to come over there and get turned around. So I began working there for a few months and I was on the list to get hired, along with my friend that was working there as well. I came into some issues at the house so I began not being able to show up for work, and they had to let me go because of this. I had to help my parents move and all so we were moving from a nice part of town, to a not so nice part of town. I was working all day and I only had my clothes and shoes to load up in my car, I got something to eat and headed to the other house. I was so tired that I left the car doors unlocked, but It was after 1 in the morning and I knew I had to be back up in the morning so I could finish helping cleaning up the house we moved from.

I woke up that morning and got ready, so I got in the car and had a feeling that something wasn't right. I looked at my radio and it was missing, I was thinking to myself what the heck. Then I turned around and all of my clothes I had and some of my shoes were missing, I started to go crazy then I rushed to my trunk where I had the majority of my expensive shoes at and they were gone. I was so mad I just sped off and it was raining that day so the roads were slippery, I didn't make it far down the street before my car lost control and hit a fast food sign on the side walk. That day was not my day, so I was in a state of depression at the time.

My radio out my car was gone, I didn't have no clothes or shoes and my car was wrecked. I didn't come out the house for a little while, then I finally said I'm going to just start over and get a better car and get more clothes and shoes. So I sold my damaged car for 1500 dollars and got 2 other warehouse jobs, so I had 2 jobs so I could rebuild. I would literally leave one job and go to the next, the first job I had was paying 13 dollars an hour but I wasn't working a lot of hours, but the second job was paying 10 dollars an hour and I was working a lot of hours there. So I was doing that for a few months and that was in 2007, so I finally had enough for a down payment on a car.

I was able to get a 2007 chevrolet impala, I was so happy when I got that car I didn't care about all the negative things that had happened. I got my car and I was working 2 jobs, after a while the first job I was going to had to lay some people off. So I only had one warehouse job, but I was still making more then enough money there to pay my bills so I wasn't complaining. The only thing about that job was the hours, I would go to work around 7 pm and get off work around 6 in the morning. The hours were getting to me but I was ok, being that I was young and able to handle it. Then one day the work started slowing up, so once again this warehouse job had to lay a lot of people off. I was so tired of these warehouse jobs but, like I said the majority of the jobs in my city were warehouse work so I had to just deal with it for the time being.

I then got another warehouse job that next week, once again this warehouse had some crazy hours. I was working 12 hours a day 7 days a week, yea I know it was very crazy indeed. I barely got any sleep but when my weekly checks would come I was very happy. So I was doing that for a while and got to communicate with this women, I later found out she was my cousin and we started to really communicate with each other at work. The supervisor over that area didn't like that at all, he liked my cousin and he thought that we was having a thing for each other. He began to really stare at me and watch me like a hound, he started to see that on our breaks I would just chill and have casual conversations with some other women as well so he was getting jealous. Like I said, I began to see so many personalities working at these warehouses that it was crazy. This was the first warehouse that I saw the supervisor acting crazy over women though.

So he continued to watch me, and It even got to the point where he started moving me around just to have me secluded and away from any women and my cousin. I didn't really care anything about it, the only thing I was coming there for was a check anyway. So one day I was working at another station and I was minding my business, and it was a woman that liked me that was working right in front of me. She was flirting and playing around a little bit, and I was just laughing at her but we were still getting our work done. So he came to us and said one of the women wanted to talk to us, so we headed to the break room and the lady said that the man wanted us fired. All I could do was laugh, as I have never seen any supervisor act this way just because he was jealous. That was one other crazy experience in dealing with someone with a crazy personality. So all I did was leave, and it was on a friday that he fired me and the other girl.

That monday came and I had another warehouse job, this warehouse job had a regular 8 hour work day and was a pretty new and clean warehouse. I liked this warehouse as the work was not hard and it was very clean. So I began working there and it was pretty much quite, at least I thought it was. When they decided to hire me that's when I saw a lot of things come out. I mean men at the warehouse were acting crazy over the women, you could not talk to a woman in there and not expect someone to be looking. And the woman were very flirtatious, once again they were saying things to me that I wouldn't expect a woman to say. All I could do is laugh and keep on moving, I mean I had women calling me there baby daddy, playing of course but they liked me that much, and I even found out later that some woman lied and said that I came over her house and she came out the room naked and threw herself at me. I really was starting to have some crazy experiences in this warehouse.

One day one of my associates would tell me about this older woman that liked me, I really didn't believe him until I saw it for myself. He told me to walk over and go to the rest room one day, so I did and I noticed that the woman had one of her shoulders out. I came back to the area I was working at and started laughing and said why did you do that man. Him and his sister began to laugh and said she told them she was going to do that if I walked by over there, and also said that she wanted me to come over her house with a bottle of champagne. I really could not believe this was happening, an the woman had to be my mother's age so I didn't know what to think in this situation, it was just very funny to me. I worked there for 3 years and later joined the military, that was definitely a crazy 3 years because I have experienced a lot in that warehouse environment.
