Dairy Manager

So I've officially been doing the same work as a dairy manager for about 2 weeks now, and in that time I've learned a few things,

1ST it's usually about 45-35 degrees no matter what time of day or month of the year. so it's nice to bring a jacket, also it's a lot better then pushing carts in from the outside where it's usually about 100 degrees by 10 am.

2ND my store manager/boss likes to order massive amounts of eggs, on the order of about 4 or 5 pallets of eggs. which ends about being 12960 eggs or about 1080 dozen eggs per pallet.

3RD people like to drink milk, a lot of milk, about every other day I move roughly 3-4 tons of milk, and the way that I figure that is that a gallon of milk weights 8-9 pounds per gallon, then there are 4 gallons per crate and there are 54 crates per pallet. which ends up being about 1728-1944 lbs. per pallet and then that comes to about 3-4 pallets per day so on average I move 2 tons of milk everyday.


4TH As you can tell I've had a lot of time to think mostly because it's just so lonely back there, so these are just a few of the calculations that I've done while trying to find something to do.

5TH the last thing, while people enjoy there job I realized this would not be one i would love, and for those people who do, do this for a living I realize that it doesn't take a lot of education, and it also doesn't require thinking power, so I've decided to get out of there as quickly as possible.

so now is the time that you should start placing bets on where I will be going on my mission.

Here's something that I'll bet you didn't know about grocery stores and milk:

Milk prices are the #1 indicator of where people shop. In other words, a small sale on milk prices will drive people to your store faster than a sale on any other item. This is in part because milk prices don't vary much from store to store, but it's also because elasticity for milk is very low; if prices go up, people aren't very likely to go without milk; they'll still buy it. So they're looking for the best deals because they know it's something they need -- not just something they want.

Thanks, MBA school.
