Never been employed (Former Employee) – New Jersey – June 14, 2016
I like the review overall and im willing to learn more about it, im willing to work and do things to get to the spot i need to have in the company , i also see oppurtunity from reviewong this quick overview
A typical day at work was like being at the gym. I've learned to work as a team, but as far as the management it could improve as my co-worker we got along just fine. The hardest part of this job is back stacking I really thought nothing was too excited about this job
Loading/Unloading (Former Employee) – DeKalb, IL – January 28, 2016
is to good to in here you just have to do 2 trailers and go home i like this job if you are faster you with 160 in four hours but if you work slow then you will not do enough money for the day you have to be faster is a good job.
I worked out of the Fayetteville location. Overall the job was ok. You can get plenty of overtime if you want it. And believe me, you will need it in order to make any money. Management is cool. The job is very easy. Overall it worked for me. I must warn all you drivers though, you must know how to maneuver and back a tractor trailer. This is not and I repeat this is not the place to learn or practice. If you don't know what your doing you will not last long there. Very tight place. That's why you will be able to get overtime, because a lot of driver's can't handle it. Pay starts @ 12 hr top pay 14.50 and it does pay time and a half.
Home every night, benefits, cool management.
Dirt lot, equipment constantly in shop, not your ideal place to be a yard jockey. You get very dirty. Very big holes in lot.
There are days when half the people on your team don't show up for work leaving the rest of you to pick up the slack. Management will make an effort to do what they can but it's hard getting people to stay. The hardest part of the job if tossing tires for 12 hours a day. Tires can weigh anywhere from 30lbs to what sometimes feel like 85lbs(even though the website says 75lbs). The most enjoyable may or may not be the paycheck you earn every week. While it is possible to make $12-$16/hr, it's not guaranteed. On average, I make $10-$11/hr so far. You're paid by the weight and coming in for overtime doesn't necessarily mean you get paid time and a half. Instead you get paid $9-9.50/hr. Not what the contract says, that is training pay.
Sleever (Former Employee) – Moberly, MO – October 3, 2012
A typical day at work at Action would involve pulling sleeves, and sleeving. Sometimes I did some computer work, and inventory. I learned how to keep an updated inventory and how to manage in stressful situations. Management was a little vague, they used very little communication. My co-workers were friendly & easy to get along with. The hardest part of my job was the days where alot of orders came in late due to miscommunication but the most enjoyable part was definitely the people i worked with.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Trexlertown, PA – January 25, 2013
A typical day started with collecting the work that needed to be accomplished from the customer and then distributing work accordingly to employees. Daily spreadsheets were used to collect data and pay employees. The hardest part of the job is having to accomodate the needs of our client on the fly while still maintaining steady work flow of daily operations. The most enjoyable part about the was when the work was finished I was permitted to leave, so hard work paid off.
Freight Handler (Former Employee) – DeKalb, IL – April 21, 2014
i went in at 8am. i was assignd two trucks and had to load and unload those trucks within a eight hour day. the hardest part was loading the trucks because sometimes there were over a thousand tires and to consintantly keep up was physicaly demanding.
free lunch and overtime
poor management and they made mistakes a lot on our paychecks.
Pay based on production, hard work but good checks possible
Lumper (Current Employee) – Gadsden, Alabama – January 10, 2014
Good place to work with friendly people. Requires hard work. You are paid based on how many buggies of tires you load per day. Varies anywhere from 600 to 800 lbs of tires per buggy. This is a subcontractor for the Goodyear tire and rubber plant.
