This could have been better.
Electronics Associate (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, COMarch 10, 2015
Pros: a great learning experience.
Cons: poorly managed.
The phrase "right-to-work" should not translate to you can be fired for no reason. The job itself was great, and I learned a-lot. The management is hopefully better at other stores.

This is a great family oriented place to work. Lots of on the job training, and very flexible. The best part of work is the small town feel and you really get to form a relationship with your customers. The hardest part is that is not always fast paced and you have to learn to keep yourself busy.

Fun workplace with a family type atmosphere
Outbound Traffic Supervisor (Current Employee), Wilmer, TXFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: hour lunch
Cons: location
A typical day at work is ensuring all of my drivers are delivering on time and in compliance with DOT rules.

I am currently a member of Management, and appreciate the fact that there is minimal micromanaging. It feels good to be able to express your own thoughts and ideas, and for the most part have them carried out.

The hardest part of the job is keeping the retailers happy. Sometimes things happen beyond our control and we have to ensure a quality delivery with little interruption.
