The people are great to work with
Customer Service (Former Employee), Woburn, MAMarch 31, 2014
Pros: the workers are fun
Cons: the hours are long, work is tedious, salary stinks, only 6 holiday pay
The company is a fun company to work for. A lot of caring nice co-workers. The only problem is the lack of professionalism in the manager department. They do not follow procedure and protocols like other companies I have previously worked for.It doesn't matter how hard or great you do your job they will give a raise or promotion to someone who are of – more... their personal liking. – less

Fun place to work but no communication from upper management.
Quality Control Services (Former Employee), FastenersFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: great atmosphere, co-workers, salary
Cons: upper management, tools to use were outdated, broken promises
Truly enjoyed my job and my co-workers. Was looking for a stable job and thought I had found it, but turns out corporate management knew ahead of time that wasn't the case when they hired me. Once I helped get the company caught up, the job was terminated.

small cutting (Former Employee), Waukesha, WiJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: working hours
Cons: team leaders, managment not doing there jobs, standing around talking for half an hour at a time, poor raises
Cutting Dept, job sucked! They always asked you to do overtime, but yet all the lead bosses were gone at their regular times. Everyone complained about working there and complained about management not doing a good job...also I had a co-worker who worked there was getting ready to be hired on, they did not hire them because of a blemish on there backround – more... check...Over worked underpaid !!! – less

Very nice place to work
LAN Administrator (Current Employee), Alsip, ILDecember 16, 2013
- Typical day is from 7-4, working on many different platforms. There is a small office area and a large 400,000 sqf warehouse that you cover. Issues ranging from printers and wireless issues to full re-builds of computers and working with a variety of scan guns.
- I have learned a lot about Lotus Notes which I have never used before this location as – more... well as maintaining equipment in a warehouse compared to an office environment.
-Management is very understanding for the most part, policies are not all ways followed to the T, and there is a lot of deviation.
-co-workers, well this is one of the better parts of the job, very helpful and a good group of folks to work with
-the hardest part of the job has to be the deviation and constant change on how things are done. (Example, this is not what happened but so it is understood: writing a report in black ink for 3 months, on a Monday you get a phone call/email saying why is this done in black ink...suppose to be done in blue...no email or anything prior to this stating that)
-The most enjoyable is the folks that work here, they (including warehouse employees) are a great group of people. – less

Anixter wasn't bad.
Order Picker (Former Employee), Alsip, ILMarch 14, 2013
Pros: interactive management. good compensation for what the job actually is.
Cons: such high turn over and constant changes the old saying was everyone gets fired from anixter.
Anixter was a pretty good job that allowed me to learn a lot and advance pretty quickly. However they don't always give everyone such an opportunity and often an employee is let go before much if any effort was put into help making the employee successful. Management and supervisors rely on other employee's to train new hires and never really judge – more... bad performance on having a good trainer. So some unlucky people get poor training and just don't make the cut.

Over all though the place was pretty good to me while I worked there and I learned a lot about how a distribution center runs. I guess I was lucky. – less

Cash Applicaton Administrator (Current Employee), Roswell, GAFebruary 17, 2013
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: very demanding
A typical day at work for me is very busy, which is great. I learn a lot just from trial and error. Management is very positive and always there to assist and help when needed. Co workers are great, fun. The hardest part of my job is doing a query on payment that was accidentally posted before your'e done applying. Once query is done, you have to tic – more... and tie, The most enjoyable part of my job is applying cash, providing excellent customer service – less
