Very fast enviroment with a lot of great benefits for hard work
Lift Operator (Former Employee), Chester, New York – October 9, 2013
Pros: great pay
Cons: long hours
I started working at C&S back in 2005 at the age of 19. I was put into an environment unlike none other. I loved what I did because the harder I worked the more money I made and the more opportunities opened up for me to advance into what I truly wanted to do. I learned that had work and dedication will get you places there and management always helps – more... the employees on trying to get them to better themselves to be more successful. The people there are great to work with, its like a big family and we"re all in it together. The hardest part of the job for most people is the extremely fast paced environment and long hours. the most enjoyable part is the great pay and the rewarding feeling for hard work. – less
Warehouse Selector (Current Employee), Chester, NY – June 28, 2013
Pros: not a stale environment, something new everyday
Cons: work hours not gauranteed
Every day is something new. I could be a selector one day or working forklift. I go up in the cage 13 tiers or 46 feet up. Other days I am given a team to re-organize a section to make room for new or seasonal merchandise coming in. I have been with this company 7 years and enjoy the atmosphere. I have learned every aspect of this particular warehouse – more... and would like to expand my training. – less
Multi task a must, fast paced fun environment and good people.
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee), Stockton, CA – March 8, 2013
Pros: large transportation and warehousing needs great place to excel and shine, showing all my combined knowledge.
Cons: 12-16 hour days 5-6 days a week
Typical day started with coordinating trailers and doors. Then getting order selectors ready with quick start up meeting. Then a more detailed meeting with loaders and reach drivers. Confirming all third party shipments, cross dock, organic, and eggs are on loads with selection pallets and in system for invoicing. The rest of the day consisted of managing – more... people, coaching, teaching and praising. Monitoring pallet construction, safety, load quality and gate times. As well as putting out any fires that may come up during any ones typical day to day. – less
A great place to work, but work/life balance degraded per advancement
Regional Inventory Control Manager (Former Employee), Stockton, CA – January 7, 2013
Pros: pay, benefits, holiday time, people
Cons: long work weeks & days, management environment
In my 25 years there were many great days and celebrations for accomplishments. The things that lagged were the communication and collaboration skills used between department and warehouses. Simply improving this would greatly improve overall quality and satisfaction of a job well done. One of the hardest part of 1 of my jobs was communicationg to a – more... manager/supervisor on proper SOP and them not understanding the job that was in subject matter. The best part of the work was the people and I think one of the best assets of the company as a whole/Team. – less
Product Selector (Former Employee), Bethlehem, PA – August 22, 2012
Pros: good money
This job was very intense. The hours were between 9 to sometimes 16 per day. Didn't like the managment, especially when I became injured. Took almost 2-3 hours before incident report was made. Had to take drug test on site before report was touched.
It was a fast paced job where I was able to move up the ladder.
Lead Loader (Former Employee), Westfield, MA – June 14, 2012
Pros: all the overtime you can ask for, bonuses, free events for employees, incentives
Cons: extreme cold weather
Time went by because of how busy we were. I learned to work and communicate as a team. I had a supportive and positive manager and always looked for new ways to make the job easier for us and to make the customers happy with the service. Everyone was friendly had no problems with anyone. The hardest part of the job was the weather; had to work in very – more... cold weather conditions. What I enjoyed most about my job was that the people I worked with were friendly ans was willing to help each other out. – less
