the company is willing to give you up over some of the smallest things. in order to make incentives you must destroy your body. a lot of physical work needed.

Literally a cool place to work.
Warehouse laborer (Former Employee) –  Gouldsboro, PAJuly 19, 2017
Good place to put an application in for. There's also lots of overtime available around the holidays if you're trying to make a little extra money. The commute isn't all that bad either.
Pros
Lots of overtime.
Cons
It's freezing all day in there.

Great Company just needs some fine tuning
General Ledger Accountant (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 10, 2017
Great company and potential for changing careers just needs a little better work life balance. If there was more flexibility to work from home and to not be in the office when you are finished working, this would be a great company.

Management lacks the leadership skills for people in today's world
Facilities Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 9, 2017
The Site I worked at is one of the shame of Americold!

One year there: 1 District Mgr, 3 GM's, 2 Ops Mgrs, Several Supervisors fired, or Quit all around me. Hourly just as bad turnover.

A freshly promoted District Manager convinced me I should run away from the place like it was on fire. Here is how he did it:

He tried to make me an example across his new District. He sent an email copying everyone of a condition that had been corrected before the email was even written on Friday around 4PM. It was a Lie!

I decided to gather my personal things, called my Supervisor and quit. HR never called to give me an exit interview, so they must have made excuses - instead of doing their job.

Operations had so much turn over and poorly trained people - after 1 year I still couldn't get Operations to write Work Orders/lift Truck Daily check sheets. I saw no Team, no cooperation, and it all starts at the top - lack of people leaders; just bunch of hard nosed rules readers.
Pros
Pay was OK, There are some good people within the organization.
Cons
Earnings - EBITDA Margin is more important than even common sense

Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Salem, VAJuly 5, 2017
this is a very fast paced warehouse. Depending on the section you're working, it can get real cold inside. Long work hours but they compensate pretty good.

Office (Former Employee) –  Belvidere, ILJune 26, 2017
It was fast paced but you are exposed to a lot of growth within the company which is a plus. The hours may suck but makes the paycheck worth it. Definitely miss working there.

This was not a hard place to work.

Ton of overtime management doesnt care about employees
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Park Rapids, MNJune 22, 2017
Worked there for 6 years and still was forced into work 2 of my 3 days off. Management doesn't care if you break your back doing your job if you're good at it they will never move you around. Old equipment creates extra wear and tear on your body. Worked 15+ hour days sometimes. Lots of overtime freezing temps and low morale= horrible place to work. Park Rapids Americold is a joke
Pros
Big checks from tons of overtime
Cons
Bad management lazy supervisors no time off
