    Better, so far, than the short-sighted derps who only pirate away employed people.
    Location is very close to O'Hare. No traffic is 30 minutes. I'm sure with traffic, probably closer to 45-60 min. The office is totally paperless, which sounds fabulous to me. I was drowning in paperwork at the old company.

    The current manager (been manager for 2 years) is the old supervisor. She's been doing both, but is overwhelmed and said it's time there was a supervisor to deal with day to day stuff, helping the staff, etc., so she can concentrate on financial stuff. There are currently 3 in the department. They're adding a 4th as business has grown and it's too much for 3 people. The supervisor would be doing customs clearances only to help out or when someone was on vacation. They definitely sound much more organized and on top of stuff than my old company. I made it very clear I had no supervisory experience and that if someone wasn't following procedure, etc., at the previous job, I'd have to go to manager/supervisor with documentation and they would handle it from there. We'll see.

    Knowing very little but what you have shared, this sounds like something you are very capable of doing and might actually enjoy. Good luck.

    A position you easily could grow into, I think. Good luck!
