Clerical (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – January 6, 2016
Very busy work environment, and good team work at the ground level. However, the communication by upper management in relaying information about goals and direction to all other levels of the company was terrible.
Inventory Manager (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – November 12, 2015
Work consists on a daily basis of running all reports for the day... Out of stock report, items not slotted, expected receiving report, on hold report, weekly shelf life analysis, daily code dates on sensitive product, donations, disposals, dead stock reports. I've held 6 different positions and moved up in 8 years at this company I've learned so much about being an operations specialist with strong focus on inventory management, customer service, receiving, loading, selection, and transportation. Management is difficult at this facility, a lot of operation issues that are not addressed completely. My co-workers are great, I have a solid long term relationship with a lot of them including a lot of members of management. The hardest part of this job is running all day like a marathon, for the last 5 years I've covered a lot of positions along and added to my own due to high turn over. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing I can guide my teammates as I am a lead, learning everything I can even though I give so much guidance, and feeling accomplished when I can. Overall this company is great, with benefits and pay, just finding the right people and the right dynamic in food distribution is always a challenge.

If you are looking for home time this is not your place 34 hours is literally all you will get and that includes the time you arrive at your hub as they will tell you that you have to log out immediately so you can start your 34 hours even though you need to unload fuel and do paperwork etc.
There's no such thing as a typical day at MBM. Almost every day is a different kind of fire to put out, but that's part of its appeal. Its fast paced, demanding, competitive, and sometimes there's so much to do that you take your work home with you and finish it there. The hardest part about the job is learning the job, it takes so long to learn every aspect of it and the only way to do it is through experience, but the best part is once you've learned it and you apply what you've learned every single day then you're golden. Management varies from person to person, everyone is different, and your co workers are the same way. Over all its a good place to work as long as you can handle the demand.
Warehouse associate (distribution operator) (Former Employee) – Rocky mount NC – April 21, 2015
Not enough money for what they have you do. People quit every other day and there work just gets added on to the hard workers there, I feel bad for the people that stay. instead of having more employes come in and work to together they have just 4 or 5 people work in each job position doing the job at least (10-15)people should be doing TOGETHER !!. And after people quit every other day they hire another person back fast through unemployment agency and online. and it all becomes a cycle I've worked there for 1 month and never seen so many people quit and get hired then quit and someone else get hired all the time , management sees these but DOESN'T care because they see everyone else lower then them. Whelp Someone has to do it is what they always say and give you extra work when some quits .People pull and hurt there backs working 13-14 hours straight for 5days in a row and get fired because they can't pull 1400 cases anymore? we are people just like you not robots,slaves or stupid
You get a lot of hours
You get a lot of hours, not enough money, zero respect, they can careless about you
Picker (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – December 27, 2014
Money is pretty good, $1500-$2000 every 2 weeks. Looonng hours, 10-13 every day. You get days off during the week, no weekends. No matter who you are, you get CERO respect from managements or supervisor. Benefits are ok, not good but extremely expensive. Unsecure job. Warehouse's system is useless. Minutes go up every day, cause every day someone quit or get fired. Again, Stay away from this place.

Former applicant (Former Employee) – Columbus, Ohio – September 27, 2013
Typical day 12-14 hours. Senior Management displays an overall lack of concern for its employees, from mid level management to the hourly employee. MBM Senior Management is driven by greed and coercion. The Transportation Group is expected to conduct their portion of the business through unethical and sometimes illegal measures. The Warehouse Manager position is a scapegoat for poor decisions made by members of Senior Facility and Regional management. The work environment can be described as hostile in nature, and apathy among the employees is very high. Not recommended as a place of employment for long term.
work environment, no holidays, long hours without compensation
Manager (Former Employee) – Ohio – September 8, 2013
Senior management shows little concern for employees. Employees work excessive hours for thankless staff of senior management. Senior management style is by threat of punishment rather than being supportive and encouraging.
