A typical day is overly stressful with employers pushing safety in everyone's eyes but push productivity hard as soon as they get a one on one with you. Management doesn't deal with problems in a timely fashion but will eventually get to them. no sick days and a point system that gives you points even with a doctors note, and no sick days.
weeks of exhaustion and fatigue with management unsympathetic to your needs.

Shipping Department Lead (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – October 11, 2014
My work day the last 6 years I was there was long, from 10-16 hours a day typical. The work was challenging personally, in that I was given a good deal of responsibility and received the support to achieve directives from my direct contact with my corporate superiors. Management turnover made it difficult to stay true to objectives at the plant level, as they constantly changed, dependent upon the team in charge at the time. I enjoyed the employees there as the majority shared the same company loyalty as myself. The hardest part of the job turned out to be no respect from the current managerial team or their lack of support for employee initiative. The most enjoyable aspect of the work day would be when my team achieved our objectives DESPITE management.
Unionized, good insurance. access to credit union/ The hours are long upward 16 hours daily. Swing shifts. Employees are typical of the warehouse setting. Extremely dusty so if allergy or sinus problems be sure to wear a mask. Cannot leave campus for lunch. Learned interesting processes in manufacturing of tissues.
The company does not invest in training. They claim safety is the highest priority, but when something is unsafe they say, "We really need the production." They have too many managers for the number of hourly workers so the payscale for production workers isn't as good as it could be.
