Interaction with Supervisor and Co-workers

Md. Abu Rayhan was the first person with whom I interact for the first in Super Star Group.

He was my senior Manager in the supply chain management department. He was also the same person who conducted my interview in Segun Bagicha, Ramna branch. He was shown to my desk, and introduce with the other five more interns who were working with me under this department. After some time, I got the chance to meet Md. Mahabub Hossain, who was the head of supply chain management who taught me some of the basics information of the background of the Super Star Group.

The hierarchy and culture of Super Star Group very well maintained. From the first in getting to know my colleague. I started talking with my colleague, and it shattered some of my expectations regarding the company’s environment and its people. At that time, I realized that the environment would be very formal and dull; however, the atmosphere turned out to be a friendly environment.
