Pick and pack seasons

Had a good run, two summers in a raw. I am, as many of you who read my blog probably know, talking about the summers during which I worked with pick and pack at a delivery company. I’ve told you about this before but maybe I’ve probably not gone as deep as I’m planning on doing now.

It seems like the interest for this pick and pack job has been quite high amongst you. Maybe some of you plan on doing the same thing. Have you seen the movie that came out in 2020 about nomads? That’s what I was doing. I was travelling around in my RV, and I went wherever I felt like going. To afford food and other necessary stuff, you work in different places during seasons. The summers, at least the last two summers, went to picking and packing for me – And I was very happy with that.

The good thing about working with pick and pack for this specific company was that they were the best. Not just in the state. Potentially not even best in the U.S., but in the whole world. That’s at least what I think. Believe me, I’ve been travelling around doing all kinds of work for the last 15 years or so. I know the difference between companies better than anyone. When I picked and packed at this international delivery company, I realized how smoothly a business can actually run. It was surreal.

Well, many of you might think that this efficiency affects the way employees feel about their work. You know, that being done as quick as possible comes before liking your job. That was not the case here, not at all. The people running the show had been working “on the floor” before getting new roles in the organization. They knew what it was like working with pick and pack. They knew the struggles, the potential traps and everything else about picking and packing, warehousing and all that. I think that was really good. Not just for us that worked with pick and pack but for the whole organization.

You wanted to work there and that is not super common, I would say. If you’re reading this, and you’re thinking about working in pick and pack, let me know! Write a comment and I’ll get back to you with some things to talk about. And also the name of the company I worked for of course.

Talk to you soon,
