Worst work experience I have ever had working for a company.
Returns and Inventory Control Specialist (Former Employee), Rockmart, GAMarch 6, 2014
Pros: six minute drive from my home
Cons: the company and it's ethics and morals as a whole.
A typical day at work consisted of doing more than your fair share of overly burdened responsibility.
I learned that if you aren't a favorite or don't have blackmail you won't survive.
Management for the most part was poor to say the least.
Few of my co-workers were/are worth their friendship.
The hardest part of the job was going to work every day – more... knowing the misery I had to face.
Lunch with a few acquaintances was the only enjoyable part of the job, apart from quitting time. – less

Stress free work environment, fun traveling around Michigan, good exercise
Driver's Assistant (Former Employee), Saginaw, MIFebruary 7, 2014
A typical day would be loading and unloading a semi truck throughout a 12 hours or so. We would drive anywhere from Saginaw all the way to Traverse City. I learned how to properly use a dolly and how to work at a steady pace to get the job done in a timely manner. My management was engaging and responsive. The co-workers at this job were fun and supportive. – more... The hardest part of the job would be working in the 90 degree + days with high humidity. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the feeling of accomplishment once the truck was empty. Another enjoyable part would be the physical shape I was left in after working this job for 6 months. – less

Managment is cool, but the amout of work we do there is outrageous. One who says they're over worked and under paid has obviously never worked here.
Product Distribution Specialist (Current Employee), MINovember 25, 2013
A typical day starts out quiet and boring, the first four hours of your day you spend by yourself and cutting boxes and stocking them in the storage racks. Management is cool, they all had to start from the bottom so they all know how it its to be in your position, so they do what they can to not make your job suck as much. For the most part the kind – more... of people you work with are criminals and dropouts, they really will hire anybody there. The amount of physical labor you do in comparison the the amount you are getting paid is ridiculous. The only useful thing I learned, was how to operate a forklift. – less

Not a good place to work
Driver/ delivery (Current Employee), Ypsilanti, MiOctober 17, 2013
Pros: its a job
Cons: to much to list.
This company uses its drivers to do major grunt work while very much under paid for industry standards. They have a high turn over rate for there drivers because they won't compete with other company's in the same field, so once the drivers come aboard they go somewhere else where they are compensated properly and appreciated. To unload or lump a entire – more... trailer with a hand cart, while rushing to meet a box count that is ridiculous. If your ahead of schedule and on time to every stop, that's still not enough for this company. Stay away from this place. You will truly regret it, and 40hrs a week is defiantly not a promise!!!!! – less

This job has potental.... Just not managed right...
Local Driver (Current Employee), Ypsilanti, MIOctober 15, 2013
Pros: decent pay, 4 day work weeks
Cons: lots of stress that could be avoided my better planing, miscomunication from management to workers
This company I feel has the right mind set as far as treating it's workers and customers right. I think that it falls short as to the effort it puts forward into doing it. I personally have been lied to about portions of the job that i was hired for from the start. Which I found out was a miscommunication from Human Resources and there Transportation – more... dept. The job it's self isn't bad. Physically demanding, not just driving. The way that they operate things from the driver aspect is much to be desired. With all the technology that they have at their disposal, you would think that things would be very easy not only for the drivers but the transportation department as a whole. The loads are loaded horribly, product is always damaged in some way in every truck that I have worked with. The paperwork that we do is just way too much when there is on board computers in every truck. I have never been on time with any load or delivery due to something that was screwed up between management, or with a load. I have never seen things so dis organized with in a trucking company. Like I said, there is a lot of potential, just not the drive to make it better in my eyes. – less

not to bad of an area to work
warehouse (Former Employee), michigan ave ypsilanti miAugust 11, 2013
a typical day of work started with stocking a section in candy, grocery, or cigerettes. I learned how to stock well, organize, do damages. Management works with you some of the time. Co-Workers were enjoyable to be around. Stocking candy was the hardest part of the job, heavy boxes to be stocked at a fast pace. The most enjoyable part of the job was – more... working with people that were easy to be around. – less

Under Paid and Over Worked
P On (Former Employee), Springfield,OhioAugust 9, 2013
Pros: job to get you by
Cons: too numerous to mention
If you need something to help you along till you get a REAL job then this is for you. If your a driver expect long days, getting called on your days off, uncompetitive pay, uncaring management, useless Human Resources management, working the Saturday following a holiday. The bottom line is this company does not care about their employees. They recently – more... hired a mediator to discuss problems between departments, what does this tell you? It tells that management does not have a clue. – less

Delivered products to stores.
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Montgomery, ILMarch 9, 2013
Pros: customers
Cons: dangerous work situations
Drove to different stores, gas stations etc and unloaded product. I enjoyed working with my co-workers and most importantly my customers. The hardest part of my job was getting robbed while driving in Chicago. The most enjoyable part of my job was dealing with my customers on a weekly basis.
