1M1E, May 2024 – Olivier GIORGi, Loading bay supervisor, goods despatch and receipt

This new interview sees us head to Arras to find out more about Olivier and his career in management. His experience enabled him to join our team at this semi-automated site in July 2023 as an order picker. He was promoted to the position of Loading bay supervisor, goods despatch and receipt last November. 

How would you describe your typical working day?

There’s not really a standard day at Crusta C, especially in terms of despatching and receiving goods! On arrival, I say hello to my team mates and assess how we’re progressing with various tasks and put the relevant action plans in place. Next, I go to my office to go through my emails and finish the day’s management tasks. There’s a whole range of auxiliary jobs such as monitoring compliance with procedures, administrative jobs etc. One thing is certain – you never get bored at Crusta C! 

What projects are you currently working on?

My main objective in 2024 is to continue to support my teams in implementing good practices and procedures, build a sense of team spirit and to upskill them on an ongoing basis in order to have a team that’s tight-knit, effective and which boasts excellent soft skills!

In a few words, describe your role to us.

Support/guidance, a listening ear and passing on skills and knowledge. The three concepts are closely linked – passing on knowledge happens when you support, guide and listen to teams. There’s no such thing as a bad suggestion or request – they all deserve to be heard. 

What are the key challenges or goals you have at work?

At Crusta C my main aim is to upskill my team members and to make progress within the company. 

If you could choose anyone at all to be your mentor, who would it be? 

From a professional point of view, at Crusta C my mentor would have been our old site manager (Robin PONTIER) who listened to me and gave me the opportunity to try the job that I’m now doing. From a personal point of view, my ‘mentor’ is none other than my father, who instilled in me his personal and professional values. 

What do you like best about your work? 

What I like most about my current job is the family feel about the company, its projects and its goals. 

Which professional achievement are you most proud of? 

My finest professional achievement is to have gone in the space of 8 years from a ready-to-wear clothing salesperson in a children’s clothing shop to managing 22 shops all over France, climbing the career ladder step by step. At Crusta C, I’m proud of the team that we’re in the process of building and of the degree of commitment that my team members demonstrate.

What advice would you give to new team members? 

I would advise new recruits to continue to be themselves. Candidates may be valued not just for their know-how, but also for their soft skills. 

Linguine al dente, mixed with marinated prawns is absolutely delicious! 

We’d like to thank Olivier for taking part in May’s interview!
