Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – South Chesterfield, VA – December 11, 2015
Working at emerson become worse and worse as the days went by. You soon learned how unorganized they were, as well as beyond unreliable. They overworked all of their workers, we would complete well over 40 hours in just three days.

it was a ping pong kind of job some days are light some days are heavy, the team is half and half u have the ones who help and the ones who make it harder on you management is the worse but when it came to the GM he was the best but the floor supervisor was not attentive or aware of his own warehouse unless told by others

Pay is terrible and supervision is also. They hired and fired so many people. They treat people little respect. Poor incentive plan. It's really not any future in this company. In 3 years of working there I only got 70 cent in raises. Started at 11.21 ended at 11.91. Everything was done manually , no equipment was up to date for you to work with.

Emerson Ecologics provided great opportunities for me in many aspects. I learned a variety of new skills and also received the training to sharpen those I already possessed. At the location I was employed, the environment was much like a family and the management showed a strong sense of employee appreciation.
great people, terrible management and shady business
Warehouse Employee (Former Employee) – Colonial Heights, VA – March 2, 2015
Worked here through a temp agency.
If you have kids, or a life or can't control the weather i wouldn't recommend working here for any period of time. Nothing you do extra for this company will ever make them appreciate you for anything more than your "rate"
Things are always ALWAYS something changing, so nothing is ever the same (in a terrible way). You struggle to keep up with their rate or how management is feeling that day.
The only thing that got me through each day were the people and ease of work (outside of racks collapsing on me some days almost being hurt)
This company makes millions and treats the workers like slaves, force feeding them false hope for change. Instead of raises, they offer employees cheap catered meals maybe once a month as celebration of the company being filthy rich on forcing OT...for same day shipments.
They want to be Amazon SO bad, but have a small warehouse (break room, office, bathrooms) and business strategies/practices from the 90s
the people, can use headphones on the floor, ease of workflow
Packing Associate (Former Employee) – Colonial Heights, VA – January 28, 2015
A typical day at Emerson was good.I learnd a lot from Emerson such as (Packing ,Receiving,and also Delivering .My management wasn't the best.The hardest part of Emerson was To cross train out of different departments.The most enjoying thing about Emerson was to become a actual Emerson Employee with the company.
Emerson uses their employees and then tosses them away..

Ever since Emerson hired their new HR manager things have not been the same culture wise. As a reg employee your treated ok unless of course you are a temp. Once you step over to managment becareful! They use you and toss you. You are loyal to them but they don't care about you at all. They moved to VA were the diversity of individuals changed I have seen individuals play the race card , even after the truth came out the individual who played the card was kept on staff and no apoligies given to the person acussed. They don't have their employees back! They rather sweep things under the rug than find the truth out. Sad but true.
I have 14 years experience at Emerson's and enjoyed all of it. Typical day at work was always busy and i was left alone to do my job and anything else they wanted me to do. Management was very easy to work for and with. For the most part co-workers were easy to work with. Hardest part of job was some of the computer tasks. Emerson,s was a joy to work for.

Pick/packing plant with no power equipment,ideal for first time work also climate controlled building which is a plus.The company hires pemp. to full but usually rotates after a few months so becoming full time is nearly impossible.You are trained in an hour or less and released to full productive duty right from the start and there is a lot of fast pace walking.Packing is a stationary position were you have a pack various product in boxes for shipping but only given to a selected few,this company has a high turn over rate and just been here one year i don't recommend giving up another job to give this company a try regardless of what it is due to their lack of professionalism and employee equality.Emerson handles various vitamin supplements so the product you handle is light, a plus but wear good walking shoes the first day. their shift is 1pm to 10pm or when the orders are done. the early shift of 9am to 5pm and 5am to 1:30pm are for full time positions only and most came with the company when they came here a year ago.
climate controlled building
company gets rid of you fairly quick, can be a hostile environment
Fast paced and very challenging and learned a lot about vitamin supplements

Everday was different with maintaining priorities together with working on solving inventory issues and always learning something new. Stepping up to the plate made the day pass very quickly and was exciting. Great teamwork at all levels and upper management kept us informed of the company goals on a quarterly basis.
free pizza, other great foods when we exceeded company goals.
