Production Scheduler in Alpharetta:
"Account Schedule for Specialized Customers."
Pros: I enjoy providing expedited service to our drivers and customers that are in need of high volume appointments to be scheduled for pick-up and drop-offs of product. The company culture is very laid back but has a "work hard, play hard" mentality.
Cons: Lack of pay due to high intensity, high stress and multifaceted work roles.

Production Scheduler in Sidney:
"Production Scheduler."
Pros: People I work with are great, funny, loving people. They are quick to help me figure out what I need to do if I get stuck. It is never boring. My customers are understanding and work with me to get things done. We have formed relationships. Suppliers are great and usually care deeply if we are having issues. Delivery is mostly on time. We have room for improvement but there is no great pressure to do it all in one day. Gradual improvement is all they ask.
Cons: Complicated process are hard to learn without a lot of notes, guidance and practice. I wish we had some classes to take on the software and processes, but generally it is all trial and error.
