Better than most agencies but has their issues......
Picker/Packer (Former Employee), Ontario, CAAugust 22, 2015
Pros: Easy work, Temp to hire, mangement is friendly
Cons: no raises, cut hours, repetitive work
The recruiter was great, the one thing that stood out for me is that he offered me three or four positions that match my job skills including the job that I was assigned to, unlike other agencies that just like to put you in any job with out giving you a detail job description or just like to mass recruit. It was great to have options and other jobs pay above ten, but problem was a resume was required so I took a picker/packer job which is what I wanted anyways. As for issues with agency, sometimes they were late on payday citing reason for "Updating our new System" (whatever that means??). Also, when trying to get a personal day off the female recruiters would hassle and almost go out of their way into finding out why are you requesting a day off (REALLY!!???). As for the job itself, it was easy, I was picking and packing furniture, typical day at work was the lead would hand out order tickets and workers would walk around from location to location with RF scanner, cart and radio. Radio was used to report any damaged or missing items in locations when picking or packing. Job for the most times would be dusty and repetitive. I was able to obtain certification for electric pallet jack by Kimco but no raise. Management was friendly and was helpful on any questions you had, also like how they were more focused on accuracy rather than speed. Co-workers were great and easy to get along with but a lot of them quit mostly because they didn't like the job or let go because of attendance so you kind of had to try to get fired lol. The job was temp to hire but unfortunately the pay raise – more... was not good, the hours were cut from 8 to 6 a day but would work from Monday to Friday. I learned that the company had recently open, the 2nd shift I was in was only open basically to prevent from 1st shift to do overtime. I left the job for better pay and 40+ hours. All in all it was a great experience I wish I was in 1st shift to least to get 40 hours a week and I wouldn't mind going back if they let me. – less

Its an agency and they are constant with assigning you work, but they are usually short term.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee), San Bernardino, CAAugust 18, 2015
Pros: They do have plenty of jobs to offer but again they are usually temporary
Cons: most jobs are short term, and you have to adjust to a new work environment constantly
I had a great experience, the only downfall is that most jobs they offer are temporary and don't really have the opportunity to turn into regular full-time employment with the company you are assigned to.

Temperary Worker (Current Employee), Ontario, CAJune 11, 2015
When I started at this company, every time I left an assignment I would get a call back in a couple of days with a new assignment. However once I asked to be kept at a higher rate of pay I've gone weeks without work. It seems they only have jobs at lower rates of pay.

To many kids
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), San Bernardino, CAMay 14, 2015
Pros: They will work you
Cons: Makes you not want to go back to unpersonal.
Everyone running around not knowing what to do it's to early for all this. I'm going to wait not say nothing until told what to do. I guess before the shift is over management will get ahold of thing. All these kids that's who I'm working with and that's the hardest part of my day. Can't wait to get off.

Pros: Long Breaks
Cons: Bathrooms are limited
Co workers are fun to be around with always friendly and willing to help if there is need to. Also, managers are very fun to get along because they do not act like they own the business and treat you fairly.

The weakest branches are in SouthGate and Bell.
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee), Southgate, CAMarch 30, 2015
Pros: N/A
Cons: I don't have enough time in life to explain.
Poorly managed, they hire more people than needed. They can't distinguish which employees are there to work and the ones who are there just to be. they have massive layoffs and all the good workers suffer the consequences. It doesn't matter if you've spent top dollar to acquire all forklift certification you still have to go through their in house certification. Can't get in contact with anyone when it comes to your schedule. There is always an issue with hours and pay. I'd rather sell drugs than to work for this company ever again.

I'm still employed by this company 03/30/2015

Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Redlands, CAMarch 27, 2015
Pros: free lunches
Cons: not enough work
the job was ok always busy. the coworkers where friendly and they always gave free lunches. they just need better pay for the work we do an health insurance. management was good bt need to be fair at the sametime. the hardest part of the job was just unloading trucks best part of the job was overtime when they had it.
