I have worked here before and it is very stressful and unorganized. You will be overworked for a pay rate that's not worth it. Alot of your product will be bad and you will be blamed for lots of things that are not your fault. Such as being behind on production because your person that's supposed to assist you is somewhere else at the moment, making you do extra work to be behind on product just to get bitched at. I wouldn't work here.

You show up do your work and work hard and you will get by just fine. I was fortunate to have bosses that encouraged me to think of push the way things had always been done and find new ways to improve the current conditions.
Advancement came easy for me
Its a warehouse so it was dirty which is to be expected
work with people that made the job more easy and enjoyable
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Bridgeton, MO – December 30, 2015
you where giving your job assignment or orders and not having a supervisor on your back about how to do it. everybody knew what to do. the hardest part of the job was when you had to load or unload a over seas container because wooden pallets was not allowed on them. so you had to hand stack cartons on the floor up to the ceiling of the container.
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Bridgeton, MO – October 8, 2015
Most all of my experience came from working at Contico. I met a lot of good people / friends there over the years. It was a great company when the founder was CEO but through the years it has deteriorated, leaving employees feeling less valuable.
MRO Buyer (Current Employee) – Bridgeton, MO – July 14, 2015
Manage daily request for critical maintenance related items. Contact necessary suppliers to ensure time lines coincide with delivery schedules. Monitor reports to ensure necessary stock items are ordered as needed. Work directly with Accounting on any invoice related issues. Follow up with receiving clerk to ensure proper receipts are made on all inventory that is delivered and issued.
The most difficult part would be when I don't get the necessary information to procure a particular item needed. The most enjoyable is level of autonomy that I'm given to perform my job with very little oversight.
Claims Specialist (Former Employee) – Bridgeton, MO – October 22, 2013
Bid department gives bid pricing to certain customers to stay competitive. These customers are other commercial companies. Once the customer sold the product they purchased from us they could then get credit. The credit was the difference of the cost purchased and the bid pricing. That was only after they sent me proof they sold our products to their customer. My research was to make sure the items were purchased from us and the customer sold our product in the time frame the bid was for, bid pricing and actual cost. Of course pricing issues and discrepancies come up and I have to deal with the sales dept., bid dept., and customer to work it all out. I also helped in collecting money on past due invoices, researched proof of deliveries, participated in yearly inventory, pulled files for state auditors, and anything else I could help with. It was a very detail oriented job. There was no room for error once all paperwork got to me. I enjoyed this job very much. It was very unfortunate I was laid off.
Accounts Receivable Assistant (Former Employee) – Bridgeton, MO – February 25, 2013
typical day... Come in, turn on computer, go grab coffee. Come back to desk, sign in, go to bank website and email lock box info to myself. Found customer numbers for each check and post their info on AS400. Wrote discrepancy forms and gave them to the credit dept.
