Productive, although not enjoyable
Order Selector/Forklift Operator/loader/Picker (Former Employee) – Mount Sterling, IL – November 27, 2016
I learned quite a few skills working there that will last me for a lifetime although working 12 hours at night in a freezer was not fun and left little to no time for a personal life.
The management at dot foods was rough at best. I spent 16 moths trying to get information about tuition assistance from my leadman, It wasn't untill I submited my 2 week notice that I got that information.
My co-workers were quite the opposite of that, most were very lively and enjoyable to be around and work with. That said, the amount of time one could spend getting acquainted was minimal, working in a production based job there is not much "breathing time".
The job its self was not difficult, what made it hard was the conditions. Working in a -15F with all the gear on to keep you warm and a harness to top it off made moving difficult and any exposed skin was freezer burnt very quickly.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the co-workers, during breaks they were quite enjoyable.
Decent pay, awesome co-workers.
Unknowable leads, Rough conditions, long hours.
