Easy work, you stay busy, but no potential, dead-end job
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Greenfield, IN – April 29, 2015
It's easy work, you get with a partner and drive around a Crown lift truck that holds a large skid/pallet to hold the product. You use a RF Scanner to get product off of shelves, basic picking/pulling job. You need a partner only because the product is very large laminate counter tops, just thin sheets of material though. Lightweight, just hard to handle. There is no potential with this place, it's a revolving door. They don't plan on hiring you on, they realize you will be gone and replaced by another temp. shortly. Those who do stick around for over a year might get hired on, but it only means maybe .50 cents more. You max out at 11/hr. and the lifer's are partnered up with the newbie's so they get very frustrated. I was promised to be hired on after first 90 days, followed by a 90 day evaluation period, I was still with my temp. service after 6 months. HR would lie to me and tell me they were about to hire me when I would ask. I am young and athletic, I work very hard, I was a valued team member, none of it matters, its a dead end job with no potential. I walked out, best decision I've ever made.
Easy, several breaks, work at your own pace
Poor management, stuck with a partner all day, monotonous activity
