    Say you're new and the guard shack will get a supervisor to escort you in...they'll give you a sticker to tape to your hooters and it will get you in til you get an id

    I remember my first day unloading you couldn't wear shorts so I had a pair of Rustler jeans on and a pair of my Dads boots that were two sizes too big.I had the swamp ass that night.

    Is the scanning job a lot easier? I told the interviewer thats what I preferred. How does that work? I mean what determines what job you do? Can I just do scanning and not have to do the loading? Or does it change on a day to day basis.

    Sneakers are fine. No need for boots.
  9. Newbies get to load or unload.

    What type of underwear do you wear? I know its odd but its can be a safety issue depending on which you say.

    What day do you need to report for first day?

    If you are working where I think you are, you will get your ID within the first few days once they assign a employee number.

    Your preference doesn't necessarily factor in where you are assigned. They honestly just need a warm body to go where needed for that day/night/minute.

    One guy showed up without proper boots on the first night was told have them by next night or he would get sent home.
