Horrib place to work
Full time Lead (Former Employee) –  Frazeysburg ohioJuly 14, 2016
Management think they are above you, sexist and all about numbers. They treat you like a number not a team member unless you suck up. Supervisor. Put their work on leads as they get lunches and credit for department. Peek is horrible. Season, long hours, You have people over dosing in restrooms, shooting up in parking lot. They drug test funny how they have leads and supervisors that really need a surprise drug test. ..FAIL........ metal detectors, funny most of your product is not metal. You work never call off and your mistreated It's a place everyone cheating or messing around, so bad they make out in pick mods. If your married it will affect your marriage no morals in most that work there.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Auburn, ALMarch 27, 2016
Not a good company to work for. Very rude, sexist, company. They do not care about their employees, and the management is quick to talk about employees to other employees which is not professional.

Not a Team Environment
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLMarch 13, 2016
This company is one way and does not care about the employees that have worked hard to make them successful. Short breaks, maximum hours for minimum wage.
This company is not a team or learning environment. If you do have to work here just to make it by i suggest read your handbook. Take everything your coworkers say with grain of salt because they will purposely tell you the wrong thing just to set you up for failure. This a bad environment all together so i would only suggest this job if absolutely necessary. It is located in a very bad part of Jacksonville and the seasonal employees that they hire are always doing drugs in the parking lot and selling them in the warehouse. There's no drug testing before they hire so Apply at your own risk!!

full time people are great to work with. Very helpful.
Inventory Control (Former Employee) –  Frazeysburg, OHMarch 8, 2016
Ranstad is the worst temp agency to work for. They use Dr. excuses against you. They tell you that it will not be a problem until peak is over and at the end they do. At the beginning of the peak season Ranstad will give you a three minute grace period for clocking in. After peak one minute is a point. But they won't tell you that. I feel Ranstad is a dishonest temp agency. I will never work for them again and I will discourage anyone to work for them.
Pros
drawings for prizes. Free lunch sometimes.
Cons
Dr. excuses held against you. They will screw you over when they are done with you.

Call Center Representative (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLFebruary 28, 2016
Great company as far as training and picking up the lunch tab. Everything else sucks. They use Ranstad to hire boatloads of people during peak sports season and fire them just as quickly as peak season comes to an end. They don't actually pay you for training others, the company is basically all for self. I'd rather have good pay and buy my own lunch.
Pros
Fun atmosphere
Cons
Pay, worth to company

Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) –  Frazeysburg, OHJanuary 1, 2016
go to work everyday get there started off on the announcements on what the production numbers where for last shift and what was coming ahead for us then cleared the lines stacked the boxes in the trailer and moved the bags to the appropriate trailer. but as it may seem like a boring job you have your co-workers with you and have light conversations that keep the night going so makes it fun.

Picker (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FloridaSeptember 14, 2015
One the worst warehouse jobs I ever had. I do not recommend anyone to apply for this job unless with absolute no other choice or you just need a few paychecks (2-3) and your going to leaving after that. If your expecting to become a permanent worker forget about it do yourself a favor and be looking for something else. the company hires up to 1200 people seasonal and lets all them go except maybe 50-100 to keep for the leftover work after football season (August-December..maybe up to February if the warehouse still has work) and inventory count even after that they let everybody go. you have to suck up to the team leaders or mangers in hopes of becoming permanent.

the warehouse is like a oven in the summer and a ice box in the winter. there are fans but they're only in walkways of the warehouse, not the isles themselves where 90% of your time will be spent working there.

They also say they have refreshments such as Gatorade on the floor when your thirsty. but by the time you need a drink it's all gone or you have to wait till someone makes more, which they're going to get tired of making and stop making it all together, which leads you into buying soda from the vending machine (which isn't a good idea in hot metal box 90-100 degrees inside. The water cooler you probably don't want drink from because they never clean them

Then their is the point system they have, which is so easy to get points from. you get a point for clocking 5 min early (which is crazy, it should be no points) and a point even if your a min late from scheduled time. so if you train caught you or there
  more... was a accident on the road and you look at the time clock as your about to clock in and it's a min after. you might as stop and walk and go pick up lunch or to go meal for the night because you still have that point.

Then the worst thing is the warehouse is not clean at all. boxes, totes, and the items themselves are all dirty. if you're not in receiving getting brand new items as they come and you have to touch items and totes look at hands after the first hour and swear to yourself you were outside all day doing landscaping by hands.

also if you have to work there for a job, then say goodbye to all social life and freetime. you're going to be working 10-12 days on your feet up to 6-7 days a week during the season. there is also mandatory which they want you to show to work even though they sometimes know their is no work in which they have you cleanup the warehouse or something. not showing up on a mandatory day is automatic termination, no excuse or appointments will get you out of it either, so if you have to go to the doctor or a family member passed away you might as quit, because they're going to fire you as soon a come back

Pros
Overtime, some of the people
Cons
Mandatory days, Heat, Cold, unclean environment, they lie about hiring people
