Warehouse Operator/ Safety Leader (Former Employee) –  Freeport, TXJune 10, 2017
Warehouse was beyond hot. The work demand was very high. The operations workers didn't respect your hard work as well as management. Knew workers that managed a 50 cent raise in 5 years of service. Will fire guys in a heartbeat.
Pros
steady job
Cons
pay compensation, management

Confusion all the time!
Billing Clerk, Premier Staffing (Former Employee) –  Shorewood, ILMarch 27, 2017
This place was crazy! From the management team on down, there was lack of communication. So you really didn't know what your job was. One person would tell you to do one thing, then another person would tell you to do something else.

Low paying but decent work environment. They are good with training but it is hard to make a living off of what they are willing to pay you in Ames. Cold in the winter and hot during the summer.
