Here's the deal: your reward for working hard as a "spare" warehouse employee is getting LAID OFF after 2400 hours of work in a 2 year consecutive period.
Needless to say there is a constant turn-style of new spare employees that come and go, for the few that stay, they're reward: LAY OFF.
Notice how often the "warehouse worker" ad is listed?
Management has the authority to put anyone on the List(in the Union) but REFUSES to do so when its comes to warehouse personnel.
Ending result from this INCOMPETENT hiring practice is: wasted $ on interviews/drug tests/training, poorly built pallets, complete chaos in the warehouse due to spares quitting/walking out(and who can blame them?), trucks going out late, etc.
One of Managements famous lines: "they're just spares." In case you were wondering how "spare" employees are treated.
The warehouse job itself is not bad, building pallets, loading trucks, cleaning the warehouse, etc. If you don't mind working hard, some long hours when its busy(most of the year) this job's could be for you BUT.....
The warehouse could run so much smoother but management continues to run it with a temp agency mentality which leads to the constant break down of the warehouse/delivery operation.
Hope this helps anyone who is thinking about applying for the "warehouse worker" in Medford, MA.
I will delete this review when/if things change, not holding my breath.
Good job for Union Employees
"they're just spares."
