Hard work, good pay.
incentive selector (Current Employee), Chester, NYMarch 19, 2015
Was a hard job that paid well and a great place for anyone who needs the money. You don't need to ask for a raise, just work harder and get a higher pay rate. Trainees were often ill prepared and could sometimes be dangerous though.

Interesting work for low pay
Business Analyst (Former Employee), Keene, NHMarch 13, 2015
Pros: lateral opportunities
Cons: salary, benefits
I learned a lot during my time at C&S, worked with some cool people, and had a lot of autonomy because of the nature of my job. That said, the company is cheap when it comes to salary and benefits. The cost of living in Keene is not cheap, and C&S does not go out of their way to give you a dime more than you negotiate when you start. Word to the wise - hold out for more money.

Co does no appreciate employees
other (Former Employee), Stockton, CaFebruary 8, 2015
Pros: some good people work for them but go un-appreciated and recognized
Cons: too many to name
Poor management. Co does not appreciate hard working, dependable and loyal employees. The favoritism is promoted and accepted over employees who actually product results and care about business. Legal nightmares waiting to happen.....

Operation supervisor Intern (Former Employee), Westfield, MAFebruary 8, 2015
Pros: large company
Cons: long hours
I was involved with all departments at C&S Westfield. My job included an active rotation in every component of the 600 thousand square foot warehouse. Using computer software I successfully accomplished this stressful rotation. I managed a 96-door dock for 2 months handling every procedure involved with filling and releasing 200-tractor trailer loads daily. I projected and met Key performance indicator’s every day and was very successful. I’ve conducted audits to ensure quality control, hired employees, used complicated software to manage inventory, Additionally, I worked nights for a month handling incoming shipments and and placing appointing inventory to correct location. I communicated tasks to teams and much more all while reporting directly to my boss in every position. I handled many issues within the company ranging from contract disagreements to safety procedures. I’m very passionate about my job and work very hard to always make sure I go above and beyond what is asked of me.

Incentive Order Selector (Former Employee), Aberdeen, MDFebruary 4, 2015
They overwork their employees. Good money, but not worth it. The freezing temperatures were bearable, and it was definitely fun working there.

When I get into work I sort though my emails to see what work I have ahead of me for the day. After that I check the overall health of our Mainframe. Then I log into our help desk software to check on the tickets that are in my queue.
