Massive Warehouse distribution center with a fast paced work environment
Quality Control Manager and Industrial Engineer (Former Employee), Hanover, MD – December 19, 2013
Pros: positive work environment, good management
Cons: the company has relocated to north carolina
Learned quite a bit about managing employees here. I was promoted to Quality Control Manager within the first year and a half of working at this particular warehouse. I was responsible for writing the schedules and supervising approximately 4-6 inspectors on a daily basis. I was also a part of the Industrial Engineering department working directly under – more... the head Engineer there. My daily duties included inspecting and locating new items from receiving, auditing shipments put together by the selectors on the warehouse floor, and reconfiguring storage setups to correspond with demand and product flow. – less
Apex- Supervisor (Former Employee), Springdale – December 19, 2013
Pros: cafeteria on site
Cons: staff, healthcare, atmosphere
Springdale is perhaps the worst place to work, second only to Dallas. The atmosphere is hostile to management trying to improve the quality of operations and think nothing to belittle and demean you in front of peers and superiors. You may have the best qualifications for a top 5 company, but if Ops doesn't like you then you might as well bury yourself – more... in your phone playing games 'cause you're going nowhere. – less
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Gastonia, NC – December 11, 2013
Pros: good pay, good benefits, good people
Cons: management change
It was a great place to work, the people were my family, after 32 years and a lot of changes, I hated that they closed the doors. The managers changed after awhile so the family feeling with them was lost, but the people were still and always will be family. I was taught so many things there, the most was you have to have team work, that's what makes – more... a business. The most fun part was seeing my friends everyday. – less
excellent place to work with pleny oportunities to grow up a career.
Material Handler (Forklift Operator) (Current Employee), Springdale, AR – November 17, 2013

Managers are great, Its really nice to go to work everyday and feel that leadership... Co-workers are easy going.. Over the years, we had learned to be a team to help our company to grow...
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee), Gastonia, NC – October 11, 2013
ATG, management and supervisors, encouraged the learning of new and innovative ideas and technology that would make all departments more efficient and productive, both in product production as well as office/administrative tasks. The most enjoyable part was that, while always being available if the situation needed it, my supervisors and co-workers – more... trusted me in my ability, knowledge and skills to get tasks completed in a timely and accurate manner without feeling the necessity to micro-manage. The most difficult part was that my contact with all of the associates of the facility was limited due to time and opportunity. – less
cnc machinist (Former Employee), Lexighton,sc – August 20, 2013
If you are smart you will not go to work for this company. Don't let the recruiters fool you into thinking this is a great company. Health ins. 40.00 per week for single. Training is the worst ever. The only pharmacy that accepts the insurance is CVS. Its a real JOKE!
Team Leader (Current Employee), Gastonia, NC – August 14, 2013
Pros: stable work environment, friendly management, co-workers
Cons: working holidays with no notice and hours changing with no notice
customer service responsibilities, data entry, forklift driving, opening and shipping doing UPS. HAZMAT certified, problem solving. Worked great as a team, self motivated. Hardest part of the job was long hours and irregular scheduling of work time. Most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with people and learning new skills.
Precision machinist (Former Employee), Lexington, SC – September 16, 2012
Cons: short breaks, mandatory 12 hour days, mediocre benefits, horrid group-think mentality, pressure to conform to ambiguous "standards", etc.
Had to wear many hats, simultaneously, for upwards of 60 hours/week. Stuffy management style, very much a top-down, bad case example of corporate America. Profitable because they squeeze the productive employees, and those employees often times have to carry others on their backs.
Swinging door, extremely high turnover and they lay people off with – more... a fair amount of frequency. They also fire people for some really dumb reasons. They manage through fear and intimidation, and mete out very harsh punishments (usually just fire people). Lots of bizarre workplace rules not common to real-deal manufacturing sites, more like a control-freak environment with a severe corporate bent. – less
This place is a terrible place to work. All they want is for you to work your butt off but give nothing back in return. They will lie to you to get you in the door and that's when things change for the worst. Benefits suck!!!
