As an Operational Supervisor at Commercial Warehousing, Inc., Nicholas spends his days interviewing, hiring and training new employees; planning, scheduling, and budgeting; performing inventory control and warehouse maintenance; and processing claims. Thus far, the WFLO Institute has helped him “see things from a difference perspective.” He hopes the Institute training will help him to become a better supervisor, and eventually, prove himself to be a great candidate for the role of Operations Manager.
