How long have you been a part of the Paper Mart team? 3 years.
Walk us through a typical day at Paper Mart for you! I start my mornings with a cup of coffee to get my blood pumping. I check my emails to see if there is any troubleshooting that needs to be done with our WMS system. We are currently in the process of upgrading our WMS so there is a lot of testing involved and configuration with the upgrade.
