Distribution Center Manager
This person is a proactive, assertive, take charge person. They possess the ability to think ahead and like to move forward to attain goals that are of value to them and the company. Competitive in nature, they are practical and assertive. They like the ability to work in environments that allow for independence, freedom, and change. A conservative risk taker, this person will make decisions, but only when they deem the decision has been well thought through and its outcome reasonably safe. They enjoy managing processes and will be provided with a small staff of direct reports.
More of a leader than a team player, this person participates when it is of consequence to themselves, their direct responsibilities, or when they can personally contribute to the overall solutions.
Since this person is very self-sufficient, they tend not to want to delegate, as “no-one can do it any better,” or “if it takes this much time to delegate, I’d just as soon do it myself”. Until they trust the person they choose to delegate work to, they won’t assign the work to others seriously. They always remember to follow up on the status of anything outstanding and can be judgmental if the work is not on course or up to their expectations. As a result, this person has high expectations of themselves and others.
Impatient and quick to act, this individual’s actions have been well thought through. They may appear impulsive because they fail to communicate to others what they are doing. When they do communicate, it is straightforward, factual, no-nonsense and blunt. The candidate will most likely be a reserved, private person who over time will become more personable, and can demonstrate a witty if not mischievous sense of humor. This individual will communicate in an informative, authoritative and direct fashion. This person is an analytical thinker, who requires factual information.
