INTERNATIONAL SALES ASSOCIATE / NATIONAL ACCTS REP (Former Employee) – Miramar, FL – July 20, 2017
I learned a lot being there. I was in the Cruise and International Division, which was busy every moment of every day! It taught you to multi-task, problem solve and work with people. The hardest part was all the export documentation because it was very time consuming. The most enjoyable part was all the people, who mostly were very helpful.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Riverside, IL – August 24, 2017
Typical Day involved working with Vendors to meet the demands of the food service products they required, researched open invoices, sent out samples, ran sales reports, answered emails and returned calls left from voicemails.
Pallet Jack Operator (Current Employee) – Westampton, NJ – June 26, 2017
This company lives up to its bad reputation. It seems there is no care for the workers of Edward and Don and the band of union vs temps makes this evident. I've been working for this company for little over two months and have been threatened with being fired over a percentage which has never been fully explained and involved in verbal altercation with employees due to there ridged respect level to workers. The night managers seem to instigate conflict instead of resolving it making for an uncomfortable working experience. Factor in the low quality of gear your forced to deal with to make a seemingly mythical percent you have a complete package of what to expect here. It really is amazing how bad the equipment is from nonfunctional scan guns to faulty pallet jacks getting injured is inevitable to the pace required. Least I forget I have experience working in many warehouses however never have I ever been in a hot warehouse without any industrial fans blowing to relieve some heat stress. But like I mentioned before there is no care for the warehous workers at Edward and Don
HR Assistant & Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) – Mira Loma, CA – August 22, 2016
A typical work day was filled with lots of work and a lot of laughter. Definitely a fun & professional environment to work in. Management was on par with every thing. Co-workers were always willing to help.
Applied for a biller position and accounts payable in Woodridge, IL
Applied accounts payable clerk (Former Employee) – Woodridge, IL – July 13, 2016
I have applied for 2 different position at this company within the last year. I have been doing accounts Payables for over 25 years and for the billing and accounts Payables position I applied they gave the same reason why they didn't want to even give me a chance to meet with them is that they found someone else with more experience. I just need to know how much more experience you need if you been doing accounting over 25 years. So I say they look for people's they know. They "say" they found someone with more experience, but they still running the help wanted ad for account Payables clerk. So, I will not apply for any more position at this company. They don't want to give you a chance to meet with them and discuss all of your qualifications.
Family owned business delivering Food Service items. The job is easy and good. A 4 day work week no weekends or holidays. Its like the perfect job. The management is really HR strict. Even the Transportation department. The company allows UNLIMITED OVER TIME. Makes you wonder how a company can allow their drivers to make as much Over Time. The manager at lakeland location only works 4 - 5 hours then goes home and not answer their phones. So if anything happened to a driver while on route. They are on their own. The co workers are long term employees. They do not like new drivers coming into the company.
Warehouse Night Manager (Former Employee) – Mira Loma, CA – October 14, 2015
Night manager, schedule 4-10 shift, on a minimum manager will work 50-60 in 4 days no support for nightshift manager, no leads nor supervisor to back up manager. Union environment very hostile. No work life balance. Pay doesn't compensate for long hours worked, day shift fully staffed with two managers three supervisors, dayshift has only 6 warehouse associates and dayshift is fully covered with management to cover one another and only one night manger to manage 15-18 night shift union employees. Something is wrong with this picture. I would strongly reconsider before applying.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Woodridge, IL – September 10, 2015
As a call center rep, the overall job isn't terrible. It's B2B, so you don't get the outrageous people calling you names, and it isn't a stressful amount of calls. On a busy day, maybe 90 when it's short staffed. You don't get measured on metrics, just quality.
The pay is well below the industry standard, even if you move up, and to start in customer care, you have to start as a temp, and that time doesn't count toward benefits or PTO accrual.
They are strict on rules and nit-picky about certain things. For example, they have a booklet with pictures just for the dress code. Training covers systems and products, but it does not prepare you for the policies and procedures. You learn that the hard way.
Customer Care Representative (Current Employee) – Woodridge, IL – June 8, 2015
Customer service (taking calls all day is not for me) They mentioned that there were advancement opportunities in the company which is true but I have been there for 6 months and it doesn't look like it is going to happen any time soon.
It is a great work environment and the people are really friendly and honest.
I just don't see it as being beneficial to me and the furthering of my career.
National Account Associate (Current Employee) – Woodridge – April 29, 2015
In a typical day at work there are always high priority projects that are high demand that are given deadlines within minutes, hours, days or weeks. Working in this organization I have learned to manage my time wisely, being able to work under pressure, work in a busy environment, detail oriented and being a team player.
