Let it never be said that one person can’t make a difference. Last month, I started a job working at one of the many warehouses for this major online company. It’s only supposed to be seasonal work, but my boss told me he likes my work ethic so much he’s recommending me to be put on as a permanent member once the holiday season is over. While this is great news, it’s not all kittens and rainbows. The warehouse work is pretty easy and the guys I work with are awesome, but the warehouse itself is just terrible. I thought a company like this would have great HVAC to care for the quality of the inventory we maintain. However, this is not the case at all. Even though it snowed last week, we still don’t have any kind of heating and cooling, not even the most basic version. So, I rallied that it wasn’t right for us to have to work without any kind of heating device at all. So, after hours upon hours of arguing with my boss, and arguing with my boss’s boss, we are finally getting approved to have heating and cooling equipment. Thought they’re saying they can’t hire anyone to do HVAC work till the spring, my coworkers and I have been okayed to bring our own space heaters into work. While these devices don’t look like much at first glance, they make a huge difference. We’ve placed them around all of our work stations, and it both helps us feel and work better. I can get so much more done now that I’m not fighting off the cold so much.
