nettie, it depends upon what kind of inventory that you are reconciling on whether there’s any heavy lifting. My position is about 80% desk and 20% out on the floor. We distribute / process returns of mobile phones, tablets and laptops, so nothing really heavy. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t some bending though. Retail, manufacturing and logistics are all different in the way that you go about it, but all in all, I like the work. I spent the first half of my career in quality assurance and sometimes, there isn’t a nickel’s worth of difference.
magic, do you have a privacy fence? If so, you (and the boys) can take a nightly pee around the parameter of the garden to help keep out the varmints. My grandfather used to do this and he didn’t have very many issues with uninvited wildlife.
metal mouse, I don’t think my manager had much of a choice after consulting with PW.
Irked, came home, ordered groceries via InstaCart. I threw my back out earlier this week (prolly sneezed or something) and really didn’t feel like shopping, then schlepping the groceries 150 feet into the apartment. I also picked up a burger and fries from Steak - N - Shake on the way home, so supper was an easy fix. Hopefully, heat packs and rest will help the back.
Stay safe and healthy y’all!
