Logistics & Supply Chain Management (LSCM) Program FAQ

What kind of jobs can I find in Logistics?

Within the Supply Chain Management field there are a number of career tracks with jobs such as:

Material Handler

Inventory Control

Dispatching for warehouses & trucking companies

Production Scheduling

Truck Driver

Production Forecasting


Quality Auditor

Operations Leads & Supervisors

If I obtain an AAS degree from Southern Crescent Technical College, where would I start in these career fields?

If you do not have previous experience in the LSCM field, you will be starting in entry level positions (material handling, clerical, auditing assistant, machine operator, etc.) in a manufacturing, distribution, or trucking company. The dynamic nature and critical importance of the LSCM field dictates that you have an opportunity to learn how to apply the knowledge and skills obtained in the program within a specific company's operational setting.

If you have previous experience in the field, it is expected that you would be able to start as a Lead Person / Supervisor. As you apply your knowledge in resource management, process improvement, etc., you would be eligible for supervisor & manager positions within the chosen field.

Where could I expect to find a job in the LSCM field?

Georgia is increasingly a LSCM hub. With the Port of Savannah, Interstates 20, 75 & 85 passing through Atlanta, the CSX and Norfolk–Southern rail yards, and the increasingly freight oriented Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, LSCM jobs are expected to grow by 18% every year.

These resources provide a strong attraction for companies needing LSCM support to locate in the greater Atlanta area to the point of generating 9,500 job openings per year.

What kind of salary should I expect upon completing an AAS degree?

Starting pay is very dependent on the industry and career field you choose to pursue. With no prior experience, you should be able to start in the $12 to $14 per hour range. With previous experience, it will be dependent on the type of experience and the level you held prior to completing the AAS degree.

In either case, the expectation is that by applying the knowledge and skills provided in this program, you should be able to advance to supervision at an above average pace.
