Very bad place to work at!
Unloader (Former Employee), Newport,miAugust 28, 2015
Pros: Non
Cons: Not paid by the hour, short on equipment, management
This place is the worse place I have ever worked for. So unorganized, management is so bad, they pick favorite to hand trucks out to so if your not well liked you will have to unload the bad trucks. They – more... also never have the proper equipment to do your job, you don't get paid by the hour so every minute your not working your not getting paid. So have fun searching for equipment while your not getting paid. – less

Decent place to work
freight handler (Current Employee), Tipp city ohioJuly 28, 2015
Pros: Lunches somtimes, coworkers
Cons: Terrible hours, not enough people
would be alot better if they had more people and you didnt have to stay for 12-16 hours. The co-workers and management make it worth staying, but the pay structure is terrible, you can make 25$ a day sometimes – more... or you can make 10$ if you get a bad set of trucks. Work is dependent on the trucks which are drawn at random, could get a 2500 case truck and be able to finish it in 6 hours and make 20$+ an hour or get a bad 1800 case truck where the boxes weigh 40-60lb each and it takes you 10 hours to do the truck. – less

GOOD People to work and great time
Unloader/Stocker (Current Employee), Reno, NVJuly 27, 2015
Pros: weekly bonus
Cons: no specific pay rate not houly labor
Good People to work but when its slow and the docks are full nothing you can do just wait for the docks to open the space.
its not a hourly rate its per truck and some of us are fast to unload the more trucks the more money you make in a day the faster you work the better thats the game

PRODUCTIVE FAST PACE
Forklift Driver/Unloader Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), Lakeland, FLMarch 9, 2015
Pros: fast pace
Cons: pay
The job is great the way you get paid is not so great. Safety is very important to this company. The people you work with are fun and very helpful. Hardest part of the job is making cuts on the packaging.

unloader (Current Employee), Newport, MIJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: 15 minute breaks
Cons: pay is not hourly
A typical day at work requires you to get your work papers and go unload the truck you are picked to do, the people around you are willing to help out if needed. The hardest part of the job is when you receive a larger truck and that may takes a while also if you have a bad machine it takes a bit longer to unload. The most enjoyable part about the job is finishing the truck.

FHI 360 improves lives
Administrative Assistant II (Current Employee), Durham, NCNovember 19, 2014
FHI 360 is a non profit human development organization dedicated to improving lives by advancing integrated, locally driven solutions.
I enjoy my coworkers. There is not much room for advancement. More attention should be paid to development and growth of staff within the organization.

Systems are being put in place to unify the organization.

Work environment is great. Some of the leaders could be changed to facilitate innovation.

Careful attention could be paid to development and growth of staff within projects and the organization. Some projects do as they please!

this job is very hard on your body and the hours don't always match up to the pay check. we do not get paid hourly wages we get paid per load so sometimes the loads are good and so is the money but most of the time they are not, but money is money.
