It was fun working at the place
Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) –  McCook, IL 60525March 4, 2017
I learned how to handle storage and work would start off slow and steady but we would always get the work done on time the hardest part of the job was dealing with the hard labor and the enjoyable part was getting to know my other co workers.
Pros
2 lunch breaks
Cons
Short breaks

Downward spiraling company in a ratty business
Sr. Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCFebruary 20, 2017
A typical day was spent trying to fulfill high expectations for sales calls and visits, while fending off complaints and cramming in ridiculous amounts of computer entry. I learned a lot about closing business - excellent sales training. Unfortunately the company is poorly outfitted and capitalized, so your promises of even average service delivery were often unfulfilled. Hardest part of the job was dealing with inventory shortfalls; most enjoyable parts - none.
Pros
Being involved in creative projects
Cons
Data entry, poor inventory

If you like late but hard work with cool people, you'll like it there
Loader (Former Employee) –  Modesto, CAFebruary 10, 2017
When I worked here, I was working with some pretty cool people. So it really made the late/long (sometimes stupid long) hours a little more bearable.

They're usually willing to help you learn the product pretty quickly and show you how to handle the product and whereto put it as well as how to load the trucks in a way that helps everyone work easier.

Management is straightforward and helpful when you need it.

Really the biggest issue of being a loader is the hours, which is mostly due to the massive amounts of orders. Some orders took multiple trucks while others were complicated and dicey when it came to loading the trucks safely and effectively. This typically results in hours stretching between 3 to 6 hours of overtime, almost always on a daily basis.

So if you don't mind the hours and like some hard work with cool people, this is a good place.
Pros
Friendly coworkers
Cons
Long hours

It could be a good job
Helper (Current Employee) –  Modesto, CAMay 24, 2016
They pay the drivers NOTHING, $10-12, they work them to their convience, you dont know your schedule till 6 pm the night before, they run you hard and put the crews with people that are inexperienced, when the customers yell at you bc sales promised them something no one stands by you, The upper management has no respect for the stress your under, the place is a mess if you can ever walk in side, they sales team doesnt care about anything but a sales, You are a number to them, nothing else, they help make memories and they dont care once you pay the bill, if something happens and you have to make a change, YOU ARE CHARGED alot for it, if they make a mistake and dont send the linen as promised, then oh well it was someone else problem, planning an event is tough but MODESTO prices are three times higher than SAN Francisco, and the quality of the linen is something like a set of sheets that have been used and washed 1000 times yet your still paying the price as if they are brand new, bc the company is struggling, they refuse to get new product for their customers, the tables are damaged and splintered, the chairs have been painted over three times from Black to gold to white, they dont care just paint them, I have smelled weed on most of the workers and alcohol on others, and the company does not have a drug free enviroment
Pros
it is a job, like the co workers
Cons
they are money hungry and dont care about anything

Once a great company to work for
Inside Operations Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Inglewood, CAMarch 11, 2016
Although I benefited from a great learning experience with well seasoned industry veterans during the early stages of the end to a pinnacle time in the company. It is sad to say that with so many changes in a minimal time span it caused a once great company that promoted family values, business forwardness, and friendly + unity environment to sink and begin to flounder among the industry.
