Fantastic Job
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Concord, CADecember 9, 2017
This place taught me so much in the time that I was there and they took a chance on me to train me into a position that I had no experience in. They are great people and have a great work community.

Opportunities are endless
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 29, 2017
Great work and great people. I was recently hired on full time and spoke with my manager about opportunities for growth and development. Management and leadership care about their employees and seek innovative ways to bridge the gap in communication and presence. The work environment is laid back with a high standard for effort. Keep your head down and contribute, as well as communicate with your peers and manager and you'll go far! Not too mention the paid time off/vacation days and benefits are great.
Pros
Benefits, opportunities for growth, good leadership, never bored
Cons
Training

Horrible Place to Work
Area Sales Rep./Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Carlsbad, NM 88220August 20, 2017
Horrible place to work, at least in the supply chain side. Underpaid, overworked, horrible management and structure, not to mention all the back stabbing from upper management. They will make you their escape goat if they fail.
Pros
good benefits is the only pro

Stressful, cut throat. Tough company to work for. No training. Learn as you go. Sink or swim. Management just sit back and let the worker bee's do the work.

Bad management
Office Clerk/ Warehouse (Current Employee) –  La Porte, TXJuly 17, 2017
It use to be a good company until new management came in. They just don't appreciate their employees. There is no respect manager curses at the employees. Nothing there is ever confidential, they tell your buisnes out on the floor. It's crazy.

Need thick skin!!!
Slave (Current Employee) –  La Porte, TXMarch 27, 2017
This company can suck their good employees dry. High turnover and management doesn't care. 20+ year working veterans treated like trash and pushed out the door. Buddy system...Treat you like a slave, but you can pay your bills! Workers didn't get a raise for 5 years, but management got theirs + bonuses.
Pros
If you show up, then you have a job.
Cons
Management sucks! HR and management besties so nobody to protect the workers.

Good place for self starters
Drafter/Quotations/Documentation (Former Employee) –  Cyril, OKMarch 4, 2017
The branch I worked at was run with a small crew who knew what they were expected to do. It was a good place for people who could work with deadlines and were self starters.
The hardest part of the job was the fact that the crew was small so everyone had to get all that was needed completed on time even when they were sometimes running on overload.
The best part of the job was the small crew who could get to know each other and become friends.
