Order Selector
Order Selector (Former Employee), Mauldin, SCSeptember 7, 2014
Pros: good pay rate, good benefits, cool co-workers
Cons: not a safe place to work, have to do to much to receive top pay, too many was to get fired.
You start off part time. You have to earn a full time position. It's a very physical demanding job. Once you get your order you have to complete it within the time limit they give . They don't give you enough time to complete the orders. So you really have to rush to complete it. It's a very dangerous job. It's too many people on electric pallet jacks – more... doing the same thing at the same time. All it takes is for someone to not pay attention for a split second and it can be fatal. It's too many ways to get fired. Once you start they give you a time frame to get to %100 production and you start at %75. The time frame is to short and they try to rush you to sign for %100 and once you sign for it you have to hit that number everyday if you don't you will get fired.. And it's very hard to hit %100 production everyday..you literally have to kill yourself to do so... And if you don't get to %100 in their timeframe they will let you go. They don't care about nothing but their customers and how fast their orders get done. Heard many stories about deaths and injurys. – less

Never felt secure in your job
Warehouse Clerk (Former Employee), West Sacramento, CAAugust 24, 2014
Pros: good wages
Cons: back stabbing culture
I worked for C&S for 4 years ending in 2009, I felt that the power push between the company and the union destroyed the whole culture of the warehouse.

The Union is not soley responsible nor is the company and in the end, if the company feels they won they are sadly mistaken. Bottom line is you took down alot of good workers.

I would never recommend – more... anyone to work for that company. – less

It was a good place to work
Receiver (Former Employee), Newburgh, NYAugust 6, 2014
Pros: close to home
Cons: long hours and not enough pay
Come in the morning and swipe your ID badge to clock in. Go to the receiving office and load the receiving doors with trailers, print out the paperwork and tags for the trailers. I was the receiver for a 3 man team that was in charge of unloading the merchandise out of the trailers. Every time a trailer was finished, I had to go on the computer and – more... put all the information. The management team was very good. I had good, hard working co-workers. the hardest part was when we received damaged and extra merchandise and the I had change the quantities of the products. The most enjoyable part was working with people from different ethic groups. – less

Good job
Demand Planning Representative II (Current Employee), Keene, NHAugust 5, 2014
Good job with decently flexible hours available. Work environment is a good one, but tension can be apparent at times. If you like to work with customers closely and have to deal with problems and fix them then this is the job for you. You need to be able to handle the stress in a positive manner and be able to work quickly and efficiently. Having the – more... ability to prioritize is key. It is typically a fairly enjoyable environment and co-workers tend to be happy and willing to help when needed. – less

Nice place to work. Great bunch of people to work with. Safety rewards program is a great motivation for safety in the work place. Management keeps everyone informed of daily work load and expectations to complete assigned work. Great equipment training program for operation of equipment.

C&S.
Dairy Buyers Assistant (Current Employee), North Hatfield, MAJuly 28, 2014
Pros: you get paid
Cons: you pay for it
I have worked for C&S for over 6 years in two departments. I have seen the company grow to try a work/life balance. In the beginning, time off was looked down upon and now as long as within boundaries and work is done, it is accepted. Different managers create a difference in the work/life balance. Some managers, like with all companies, are harder – more... to work for than others. This is a stable company and has proved itself, but it also takes on more than it can chew. It promises so much to the new customers that it sacrifices the relationships already built. – less

Overall a good job.
Material Handler (Former Employee), Bethlehem, PAJune 24, 2014
Pros: great pay, okay people, wonderful workout.
Cons: stessful on body, not much advancements. can be dangerous.
simple job to learn if you were devoted into doing so. great place to earn money and gain warehouse experience. had to be careful who you talk/associated with, a lot of unsafe workers. but overall the people were not bad. eventually the non-workers would be fired do to not hitting there goal/percent. the job was very stressful on your body, some days – more... worse than others. very enjoyable on easy days. too many greedy people trying to hit high numbers to make more money. – less

Porter/Janitor (Former Employee), MDJune 17, 2014
Pros: employee appreciation, catered lunches, gifts for weekly top employees
Cons: commute, very cold inside warehouse
I had the same routine every day. I loved management there. They were compassionate and understanding, made sure their work was done, and had fun all at the same time. The hardest part of the job was working in the cold. It is a refrigerated warehouse. The most enjoyable part of the job was the employee appreciation parties and lunches.

C&S...NOT the best
Compliance Analyst (Current Employee), Brattleboro, VTJune 3, 2014
Pros: ok management
Cons: bad cafeteria (brattleboro), limited "preferred" parking
Great company if you have nowhere else to work in the area. Great place to work if you do not have a college degree, specifically a Master's to be able to get a good job. Staring at computer screens all day is what you have to look forward to, therefore putting a major strain on your eyes.

Warehouse Selector/ Logistics Processor (Former Employee), Northwest, MarylandMay 31, 2014
A typical day at work was to go in, do the work, sometimes getting selected for overtime and then going home. Nothing changed, very normal, lack luster work.

The hardest part of the job was working in the cold.

The best part of the job was the free hot chocolate machine
