Amanda shares her experience of working at Workwear Group.
Amanda B, Picking Supervisor.
I have been a part of Workwear Group for about 3 years now. I started as a casual making boxes, moved on to the packing team, then to the picking team – this is where I found my love for warehousing. I love the culture at Workwear Group and this is why I became a Culture Champion.
When the step-up program became available, I was one of the 1st people to get in. I worked in most areas of the warehouse, picking/packing, inventory, credits and receiving. Not long after Lean and 5S came into our Distribution Centre, making the warehouse even better to work in. I had so many ideas to contribute and this is where I shine!
I stay at Workwear Group because of the managers and co-worker that believe in you. I came from a beauty therapy and hairdressing background with zero warehouse knowledge at all! My Manager Scott M has inspired me with my growth in warehousing, pushing me to be my best and to think outside the box. He is always that one step ahead and will challenge me at any chance he gets! Also seeing where Ross B, our Distribution Manager has come from and where he is today is amazing, that will be me one day.
I look forward to having a laugh with my team and seeing them do the best they can. When we go into our OPs meeting, that's where we problem solve and come up with a plan for the day. Teamwork is dream work! Workwear Group is a cool place to work, everyone is friendly and supportive. There one number rule is always safety first, it's good to work for a company that honestly cares about me.
