Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Duluth, GA – July 16, 2016
Most days you work 10 to 11 hours. Overtime without any warning, very hard to plan time outside of work. Very Hard to advance in the warehouse, however there are many other avenues to explore within the company.
Branch Manager - 1 (Former Employee) – Alexandria, LA – April 18, 2016
I am not giving a general opinion per your specifications. This is just a short comment about the lack of upper management communication with mid-management for advancement of lower management. Upper management seemed to keep overhead low to ensure personal bonuses rather than branch benefits. It satisfied my career goals for the time despite the high level of stress.
lack of communication; upper management selfishness
Operation Manager (Former Employee) – Chehalis, WA – April 17, 2016
Report to work on time and go to work in a friendly environment on a team with common goals and interest. Introduction to safety culture and learn the responsibility to comply with DOT and Safety Management Systems. The pros of the job was winning. The most difficult part of the job was lack of HR support.
Route driver (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – March 22, 2016
I work for this company as a route driver and I can honestly say I can't believe the lack of respect and common decency management has for there associates. They constantly tell you that safety is priority ,but constantly have you in situations that are completely UNSAFE. Your are constantly reminded that Nevada is a right to work state and if you don't do as they say find something else. I wouldn't recommend this place , if you're a cdl driver there's much better out there.
Supervisor, Shipping - PM (Current Employee) – Levittown, PA – March 14, 2016
Very pleasant atmosphere. Room for advancement if you are willing to put the work in. The DC has the "small town" atmosphere - everyone know everything about everyone. The same people you work with are the same people you could be friends with outside.

Filler (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – March 9, 2016
work is slightly physical but not demanding at all. Excellent pay and benefits. Some location are union and some are not. Management at my location is poor. Definetly could make a career out of it tho.
Typical day consisted of waking at 4:30 am leaving at 3 pm. As a manager. Not a typical 9-5 job, you learn how to manage cylinders in an environment that is not friendly, kind, or fair. The company takes the cheap way out with their plants rather than buy new equipment they have old broken and run down equipment fixed by there own employees rather than a outside professional. Work in poorly vented areas with dangerous gases and lead paints. Hardest part of the job was sticking to your moral compass and doing things ethically the company tries to push for unethical things that way they can save money. Pay there employees for what they know how to do not what title you gave them.
District Manager (Former Employee) – United States – January 30, 2016
If you want to work for someone who will constantly undermine you and your efforts on a daily basis, then you came to the right place. This is a good ol boy company especially in the region where this job is open. It doesn't matter how much you build the territory, if you don't fit or won't bow down to upper management, or if you use your brain to think, they will send you packing. So, if you are good at being a puppet then this is the job for you!
Bad culture, undermining management, no direction, low compensation
they have people that harass people and that put a lot of stress on you and management don't do anything , that makes the job very stressful, these people are not management, many people have complain but nothing
some people there are great people easy to work with
management, and the people that thinks they ought to be
