Order Puller Forklift palletjacket (Former Employee), fort worth texas – November 8, 2013
Pros: team incentatives, extra breaks, and longer ones, alternate weekends off and all the overtime i could handle
Cons: very cold
My day would be clock in go to my station put on the freezer suite make sure that I have all the materials that I need to start a productive day at work jump on my assigned forklift go in freezer and began pulling orders from freezer do recount from the number of orders taken and then load orders onto pallets and then wrap them to be loaded onto companies – more... delivery trucks. I am a team player so I would try to help me co workers with there orders so that my team would reach highest production quota. to me the hardest part of this job was that I worked in a blow zero environment so I would be very cold and also u have to be careful when driving the forklift in the freezers so that u didn't wreck or run into anyone or damage any of the company's product I like to do a good job so that my team would earn extra time for breaks and lunches and things like that – less
Line Extruder (Former Employee), 5 weeks forklift/safety training – November 1, 2013
My job was to keep all machines fed with the right materials, while maintaining a safe, clean workspace. Had to attend safety meetings before and after work, also had to work a lot of mandated overtime which was perfectly fine with me! I enjoyed this job a lot. The downside was they didn't need me very long due to lack of business.

Tractor Trailer Driver (Current Employee), Herr foods Inc, Nottingham, PA – July 29, 2013
Pros: independence, free chips while on duty, health benefits, nice people
Cons: crazy long hours, negative supervisor
I like the independence I have. For the most part I do not depend on others to complete my tasks. And sometimes have flexability when making runs. My coworkers have good work ethics and a commitment to safety. However the hours are crazy. We never know when and how long we work the next day until the day before which makes it hard to make plans and – more... do things with my family and in the community. Because the hours are often long and start at all different times in the middle of the night this adds to the difficulty. Over 80% of my time at work is spent sitting which negatively impacts a persons health. There does not seem to be much oppertunity for advancement. Our current supervisor confronts any new ideas or concerns with negativity and often does not respond in a reasonable or timely manner. If the hours were shorter and more consistent this job would be very nice. – less
Palletizer Operator (Former Employee), Kankakee, IL – July 15, 2013
A typical day working here at IKO, consisted on watching the machines and making sure they did not jam up, and if they did fixing the problem and getting the system back up and running as soon as possible. The most enjoyable part of the job was when we broke down and cleaned each part of the machines.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Pasadena, TX – March 22, 2013
Go in at 8 o'clock. Have a team meeting for encouragement and helpful tips on selling product. Then go out in the company truck and sell the product. Hardest part for me was that it was out of the way and traffic is ridiculous in Houston. Most enjoyable would be working with people
