Warehouse Department Lead (Former Employee) – Lawrence, KS – October 17, 2017
There are three different shift at that plant. It runs 24hrs a day and oftentimes on weekends. There are several departments and a lot of cross training. So one could be reassigned to a different department depending on needs. Lots of training and opportunities. Good pay and good benefits.
They seem to only care about the production of doors and hitting quota then the well-being of the employees that are working for them. The machine is constantly break down because an employee who work there from the beginning of 1990 said that the equipment hasn't been updated since he got there. The management and supervisors lack the leadership needed to run a productive warehouse. Always forced to work overtime and to come in 2 or 3 hours early no work-life balance. You will have to keep track of everything yourself do not depend on management to do so because you will get screwed.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lawrence, KS – August 16, 2017
If you are looking to work somewhere that's poorly managed with no work life balance Amarr is the place. Expect to work seven days a week and go months without a day off with extreme physical labor no chance for your body to ever rest or recover. The company is very poorly managed and always over capacity. The compensation for the hours and labor expected out of employees in not adequate. Very high turnover rate for employees and supervisors basically because you have no life outside of Amarr. Worked as a supervisor there and in my 19 years working in the manufacturing industry poorest managed company I have ever seen. Seriously like working in a overseas sweat shop. Only work here if you are desperate for money or a in between job because you will have zero life outside of work period.
Shipping loader / lead loader (Former Employee) – Lawrence, KS – June 22, 2017
If you're a hard worker and willing to work this would be a perfect job for you and if you enjoy over time this would be the place for you they have made it much better in the past few years for work life and outside work life it was a great company for me to start in my young career
Amarr is a okay place to work, i have made some good friends and learned new jobs , They are not a good place to retire from, Retirement is the same as loosing your job from what i have heard from others who have retired with over 10 years exp.
Good people to work with.
short breaks, some employees that don't want to work and make more work or overtime for others.
The company on a whole is ok at best and the hardware department 3rd shift manager is hard to work with due to multiple personality conflicts with the people he supervised. He is unprofessional when dealing with any type of company violation, and even went so far as to threaten my job to try to get me to do things his way.
Pride Staff (Former Employee) – Lindenhurst, NY – February 11, 2017
Coworkers were welcoming; my coworkers trained me and i got the hang of everything pretty quick. The manager was a great guy but he was nice to a limit he likes employees who love to learn and work at the same time. You always have to have a certain of energy when you step into the warehouse because we worked with alot of heavy weight allday.
