Good place if you're looking for some cash. No place for advancement.
Material Handler (Former Employee), Wyandotte, MIAugust 28, 2014
Cons: everything
I was working at Jacobson Companies for approximately 7 months. The people on the floor were jerks to me. Practically everybody on the floor were bullies. I went in, did my job, did it right, said no word to anybody because my first 2 months there I learned everybody were bullies. Still, people would mess with my job. Throw my GM car parts under the – more... racks, severely harass me, throw my GM pans spilling my parts ALL over the floor making my job even more difficult. Not to mention I got FIRED because 2 employees there didn't like me and lied to the Manager there. Since the management is completely terrible, there was no investigation and he took their word and the manager fired me. I was completely innocent. Even the manager harassed me. My mother is currently still terminally ill. I told him my break was another 5 minutes longer because of my ill mother. He said "hahaha nice try bud, I had 3 witnesses, sorry". Which there was nobody outside. So he was just lying to get rid of me. Like I said, I was completely innocent. Truly a true worker at Jacobsons. Everybody there broke the rules and safety regulations. They would: Ram hi-lo's, throw razor blades at people while driving, throw paper clips, spit on the floor, sit under the racks smoking ecigs, would sit around the last part of the shift instead of doing their jobs. I was treated unfair and had no voice whatsoever. An honestly terrible company to work for. I was suppose to have premium pay. It was suppose to go from 12.00 to 12.25, but the manager never did it. Don't bother working here. – less

Customer service Representative (Former Employee), Chester, VAAugust 20, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: hours are being are being cut back
I have a pretty easy going job. I learn something new everyday almost. Management is okay, but does not always make smart decisions. My co workers are friendly people but there are some that can be pretty lazy. I enjoy the fact that i get my job done before the day is out and its not as stressful.

material handler (Current Employee), whisset nc.. rock ceeekAugust 14, 2014
Pros: wanted 2 or more years of warehouse work just for a resume
Cons: you have to dumb yourself down to make it
Avoid this company as if it was the AIDS virus .. there's nothing good that can be conjured up to say on the behalf of the management staff. Theres hardly no work flow and there is No promotion in reserve department .location whisset nc -rock creek.. matter fact. ... bookmark this company as 666.. stay away.. here at jacobson you either quit or get – more... fired. Theres no lateral movement to other departments for promotions. Coworkers are cool but they dont pay the bills.. you start off at 10.00 an hour and get 20 to 22 cent raise after a year.. Insurance is over a quarter of your gross pay check and if you have any formal education your probrobly smarter than these incompetent managers and teamleaders which makes you a target . I could go on and on.. about overtime being made mandatory the day of or the day before.. but in simple stay the h*ll away – less

Stand up crown operator (Former Employee), Monee, ILAugust 5, 2014
Pros: i no longer work there
Cons: overworked and underpaid, employee had wallet stolen out of vehicle on first day
This has to be one of the worst places I've worked at ever. The manager got fired for a guy being pulled of the dock on his forklift. Dead rat was found in the racks. Should I go on?

Forklift Operator/ Assistant Supervisor (Former Employee), Sauk Village, ILAugust 4, 2014
Pros: great hours
Cons: little advancement
My everyday at Jacobson consist of keeping my work area clean. Loading and unloading different types of animal antibiotics being shipped all across the world. I get to handle different types of material assisting co workers with learning how to handle them as well to keep our customer satisfied. The hardest part of the job is waiting for advancement – more... with in the company. I enjoy working with my co workers and the customer to get the product shipped out for the livestock. – less

Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee), Edison , NJJuly 29, 2014
Pros: co-workers and friends
Cons: third party company, don't like the shift, not the one management offered when promoted.
Excellent relationship with my co-workers , I have learned , like in my others jobs ; how to deal with many kind of people , I'm more organized due to the quantity of paperwork that i have to deal with,I've created a very good relationship with customers, suppliers , managers , drivers etc..,the hardest part of the job is when it gets really busy and – more... it desn't seem like we are goin to achieve our goals, and the enjoyable part of the day is when we finish our shift , and as a team , we achieve our goals and I send the daily report. – less

Don't really care about how the employees feel.
Auditor (Former Employee), Joliet, ILJuly 24, 2014
Pros: free lunch.
Cons: short breaks, bad management, favoritism.
Only thing they care about is making money for the company. Managers are rude, and don't care how the employees feel. You can give 100% and they still turn their head and ignore it. Favoritism is obvious, if they like you then they care.

Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Romeoville, ILJune 5, 2014
Pros: overtime if needed
On a typical day at Jacobson you pretty much did a little bit of everything. This company cross-trains you just in case you are needed in other areas. I have learned a lot from this company in terms multitasking, warehouse management. Great company to work for.

good job for experience
Warehouse Operator (Former Employee), Freeport, TXMay 30, 2014
Pros: overtime, decent pay, good experience
Cons: health hazards everywhere, heat, no breaks most of the time, high turn over ratio, management
Jacobson companies, specifically in Freeport, TX, was one of those jobs where you only move up if upper management likes you. It does not matter how much you work, how hard you try or how efficient you are at your job. If they see you are good at what you do, then they will work you 72 hours a week and burn you out. Overtime was always available, basically – more... mandatory. Typical day consisted of working long hours, 12+ in 120 degree heat because there is no ventilation system in the warehouse so the heat coming off the product mixed with the heat coming off trucks just sits in an enclosed warehouse suffocating you while you work. But hey, if you're one of their favorites you may just get a 15 cent raise at the end of the year! This job is good basically for the experience to put on your resume, not to make a career out of. Turn over ratio is high, so they are always hiring and always letting people go. Management seems lacking in the head, it's no wonder everyone else that was good went to work for SGS or DOW for $5-$10 more an hour than Jacobson pays. – less

This was hands down the WORST job
Customer Service (Former Employee), Port Allen, LaMay 5, 2014
Cons: long hours, no training, poor management
Management is horrible. The stress is unbelievable! I was thrown into a position with no training & questioned when I made mistakes. The days were 7 am - sometimes after 8 pm. The pay was horrible. The coworkers gossiped worse than any group of teens I have known.
STEER CLEAR of the Port Allen location
