Start morning taking pick orders , very very fast pace picking 30+ pounds tow hitches on pallets. Some have to be boxed so you have to lift them three times , if that's not counter productive what is ? Management praises you one day,then criticizes the very next day, they also post your pick history on a TV screen in the department so you can be laughed at or just to have your business out there . I thought your performance was between you and your supervisor but this is how this company warehouse manager rules like a dick tater . Co-workers are very helpful and need to be treated better. You start as a temp and after a year... you might get lucky. Good employees tho .
Very small break room, 1 picnic table outside for 30+ employees
I learned how to operate a RF gun better and operate the forklift better than what I use too.The hardest part of the job is picking those hitches, they're very heavy and big. In all its a fun work place and fast paced.

Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) – Goshen, IN – April 22, 2016
A typical day at work started at 5am and ended at 3:30pm. This schedule allowed me time to do any running around or other business in the afternoon. The normal schedule was 40 hours per week at a Monday-Thursday 10 hours per day. Fridays off was another plus. I would usually spend time on the computer accessing inventory, and other functions to look at bill of materials. Searching for parts and helping with the receiving dock were very common. I would also be driving an industrial fork truck. The work environment was fast paced at many times which included an environment of just-in-time operations and attention to quality. Sometimes moral was a bit strained due to long hours or having to rework products. Many times machines should have been replaced rather than patched, and old parts were kept too long and took up space. Rework was deemed necessary because of having a culture for maintaining a high level of quality and customer satisfaction. The work environment was often dirty because it is a welding shop but was told it was cleaner than most in the industry.
Continous Improvment, learning oportunities, 3 day weekeends sometimes, and good compensation
Old Machines, long hours, outdated inventory system, plant overfilled with product at times
Inventory Coordinator/receiving dept (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – February 3, 2016
Every day is a different challenge and I love that. The team here works very well together. I am going to miss working here very much. The company is closing our facilities here in El Paso and Juarez at the end of March.

Majority of the people are nice, but the company is very disorganized, and has a tendency to not address areas of need. The compensation is comparable to market rates, but the benefits are sub par and there is no accountability.
