Terrible working hours, impossible goals, high turnover
Order Filler/Dock Worker (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOApril 2, 2014
Pros: decent pay to start out
Cons: high turnover. hard physical labor. repetitive. no advancement
Job was borderline impossible. If you got the hang of it quickly and can tough it out you could make it work. Most employees were constantly looking for another job and used it as income for now. Poor management and training.

Worst Job I've ever had.
Order Puller/Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Wheatland, OKFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: long breaks
Cons: freezer work
This is the worst job I have ever had. Sometimes you have to work longer than 12 hour shift, and they "randomly" pick people to work in the freezer.

Fun, Safe, and Productive
Inbound Supervisor (Former Employee), Slidell, LAJanuary 22, 2014
My employment at AWG was good. I enjoyed what my job and the people I worked with. Although, with me moving to a brand new warehouse facility, the hours and stress took a toll on me after a year. Other than that, AWG was a great company with good benefits and a fun safe warehouse to be a part of.

FORKLIFT OPERATOR (Former Employee), Pearl River, LADecember 12, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: no free time
Management at AWG Gulf Coast Division in Pearl River, LA had the worst management I had ever seen. These people seemed like they had no previous managing experience at all. The days were long with shifts anywhere from 12 - 16 hours with only 1 day off a week. This job would be good for anybody who has no family and likes zero time off work.

Produce / Meat Clerk (Former Employee), Southaven, MSSeptember 3, 2013
A typical day included 20-50 phone calls a day. Constant paper work to completed and sent out to different companies and also emailed. Phone calls to different companies to confirm arrival of shipment information. I learned the intensity of being a produce and meat clerk. Management made me feel welcomed. They treated me as part of the team even though – more... it was a temporary assignment. The co-workers were very helpful. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the phone calls because there was so many and checking the messages to get the orders on time. The most enjoyable part was the fellowship the company had with all the areas in the company. – less

Tough job
Pallet Jack Operator (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKAugust 31, 2013
Pros: good hours and good pay
Cons: union
This job had a very good pay and good benefits but there were many workers that started the Union and the ones who did not sign it were treated different than others who did. The job was to pick up and complete store orders and deliver them to the correct gate. I learned how to drive a pallet jack and complete tasks in a given time. The management was – more... alright but they did not help at all nor were they supportive to the new workers. The hardest part of the job was figuring everything out yourself. Most enjoyable was the pay. Even thought the job was hard at times the paycheck was very good. – less
