I walked into work like i was walking on court to play a game of volley. Each day was different with a good possibility of minor changes to your team due to roster. These changes would make or break us sometimes but you learn to work with the hand that is dealt you. You learn to "keep it moving". Our management team as a collective had experience of 50-60years within the company. They were the most invested and dedicated to seeing how best to tackle daily challenges and meeting daily objectives the best way they knew how. I am qualified Graphic Designer. Moving to Australia I gave myself a year in this warehouse to save then move on to a graphic job. That never happened much to my fathers dismay ( a Samoan thing) lol I thoroughly enjoyed the work, the bosses, the physicality of the job. The money was great and most of all the relationships I formed with the people i worked with. The work was hard at times very physical, but that is what i loved about it. Everyday was different. Why would I leave?
As i get older balance is everything. My love for the creative world is more progressive now than its ever been because i choose to keep it in in my life without making it my life's mission. The hardest part about the job was leaving it. I was glad to stay to the end. It was a good ride and a wave that will be hard to beat. This is what i have learned. "You're only as good as your team, as strong as your weakest link". Overall some of the best learning years of my life, definitely some of the best years of my working life!
Great communication, Family oriented
Not being able to say goodbye to everyone.
