Packager (Former Employee) – Salisbury, NC – May 3, 2016
A typical day at work is frustrating usually because packaging is so far behind so they are killing people with overtime. Your not supose to speak for too long even if your working while doing so. I learned how to drive machines, package different product, pick and check orders. Some of the management is very unprofessional and the co-workers are hardworking and fed up with the company. The hardest part of the job would be the people you have to work with because the job really isnt hard at all. The most enjoyable part of the job is the benefits and the paychecks.
They regards us and were appreciated it the good work that you do

Work day is very busy with much responsibility to maintain inventory and promote extensive product line which includes upwards of 30k products..

Distribution Clerk (Former Employee) – Auburn, MA – February 25, 2015
Coming into work in the morning was always a joy. Greeted by everyone in such a wonderful way! Getting started was a little difficult for me because I couldn't always find my manager and get my tasks for the day right away like I would have liked. I learned to have great communication and computer skills, and what it would be like to work in that kind of environment.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Various locations – August 29, 2015
Difficult people in management. Heartless and ruthless. While suffering through prostate cancer I was given an "unsatisfactory" rating and reduced to part time which ended my health insurance coverage.
shipping dep (Former Employee) – Auburn, MA – August 30, 2013
working at imperial wasn't fun or enjoyable. I worked in the shipping department and it was very demanding. it was a non stop going job standing on your feet on a concert floor. you had to work at a fast pace in order to complete all the orders. management wasn't that great they didn't know how to respect people. the hardest part of the job was standing up on that floor my feet and back would hurt extremely bad after.
Receiver/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Auburn, MA – November 23, 2014
When I go into work, I first check all appointments for the day to see if it makes sense with how many people we have receiving for the day. Other co-workers that are coming in talk for a few minutes while management plans the day. People are then given their assignments for the day and everyone goes to work. Management at this company is very friendly and remembers everyone by name. The most enjoyable part of this job are the other co-workers. Everyone is very friendly and easy to work with. The hardest part of this job is when we are in season(Christmas and Summer). For some reason, everything does not balance out in these months. What I learned from my experience with this company is team building and networking with other employees as a leader in the company
A typical day would entail working with one of my reps or going out and auditing stores. I have a pretty large territory. The people I work with and the people I deal are very nice and helpful. I enjoy being around people and helping out when I need to.
Sales Service Representative (Former Employee) – Auburn, MA – May 8, 2015
this had to be the Worst experience in my entire working career. For a company that has been in the business of customer service for many years they have no idea what real customer service is. When I was hired I was told there would be more time in the accounts and less time on the road. I found out the first week that driving two plus hours at the beginning and at the end of the day would be typical, that it was not considered part of the day and that I would not be paid for it. There was mileage reimbursement but very low and the rate changed weekly, and if you figured the wrong amount, getting paid took weeks. order delivery amounts were typically changed without notice so you'd drive 2 hours to get to an account only to find the order was not there, plus you'd get scheduled to go to an account only to find the delivery day had been changed and there would be no product to fill the shelves. Customers would regularly complain and I had no good news to share with them. Product would not "be authorized" for one account but would be for another. Constant out of stocks for key items resulting in losses in sales for any given account. Promises made but constantly broken yet they claim to be in the business of customer service. Salary pay but was told that when your 40 hours were up, just leave the product in the back room that you hadn't worked and leave it until the next scheduled visit. WHAT ? ? ? If you are even considering a position with this company I would advise you to choose McDonalds or Wendys first.... I could not handle being expected to work 12-16 hours a day withmore... constantly disappointed customers that deserved much better.less
