Pros: free soda, and breaks
Cons: long hours, very estressing
starts at 2: till 6: am long days atypical day is a fast day, co-worker are always in competition yes I learn a lot there like working with a voice command and code reading, managing there were proper, we had very long days, we had new leaders every 3 months is really hard to work under pressure, my hardest part of my experience there was good pay but – more... long hours, you cant leave until everyone to the last person is done the most enjoyable is when I get home from a long hard day – less
Warehouse/picker (Former Employee), Columbus, OH – October 31, 2013
Pros: pay rate, free cook-out, soda and ice cream
Cons: long hours shift, not life and days off during the week
Shift start at 2pm during the week and one hour earlier on weekends. As soon you come in to work, you may work for 6-8-10-12-13 hours shift. Most likely you don't have weekends off, you days off will be during the week. After you work 12 hours and have to work the next day supervisors expect you to pick 100% of your job in 8 hours.
There is not HR – more... in this company, Manager and supervisor do what they want to do. They apply rules to whatever people when they want. You complain about safety, MBM won't do anything. They just don't care.
Let's stretch, that's what the supervisor says every day after the meeting. 60 seconds stretch for a 2,000 times you have to bend your back in a complete shift. You back will totally kills you every day.
You see people working overtime in their days off if they want, they walk in and work. Some another people don't. If you don't call and come in to work, you go home.
If you are volunteer for one day to work in a different department, you are done. Supervisor will send you again and again to help out freezer or cooler because you already know how to rock and roll in those places.They are a lot of people who say no to supervisor and supervisor are cool about it, they wont send them because they don't want, let's send someone else.
The money is good only if you can work in your days off if you want without making any stupid phone call to your supervisor. Just show up and work.
Hardest day at my warehouse are Sunday, Monday and Thursday is the worst day. There is no enjoyable part of my job, I am being honest, none! I have seen a lot of people, new people start working in freezer, they don't last 1 month. Supervisor quit or even Warehouse assistant manager.
Let me explain you how this place work (different system is used in each warehouse).
Today Monday, 36 trucks to do. (36 in dry, 36 cooler and 36 freezer) MBM gives you time for whatever truck. Maybe truck 5 is way easier than truck 7, so they will you less minutes. If you want to pick 100% today, the minutes will be 580 minutes, that maybe 5 truck (routes) Each route can have 4 orders, 6 orders. The bigger, the best for you, more minutes, easier to hit your minutes.
Today Monday, we have 12 guys people picking in dry. So, you must think 3 routes (truck or trailer) each one? Nope! You can do 5 routes and someone else 3 routes. So if 4 guys are not picking fast enough, more hours of work for them! So more money? Yes but is not good for you. If management says, 36 routes, 8 hours of work. If those people made those 8 hours of work in 12, that's bad. You are slow!
So why don't they change this system? That's is the answer everyone wants to hear!
If you have a family or want to go to college, MBM is not for you.
The only thing I like about MBM is the cookout (sometimes), free soda and free ice scream (always), thats all.
What I have learned at MBM? Pick really fast so you can go home as soon as possible.
What MBM should improve? We should have 50% discount in any gym we want to workout. Provide more gloves Fix old pallet jacks and replaces the old ones for new ones. Create a Associate group
If you think you can pick around 5,000 cases or more in 40 hours per week, you may like this type of job. BTW, be ready to loose weight!! Be ready! – less
Order Selector (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – August 23, 2013
Great pay for full time employees only. I worked hard on a regular basis to gain permanent employment with a company that was only beneficial to actual "hired on" employees. Quality work meant nothing, hard work meant nothing, and dedication meant nothing. False promises, unattainable production goals and inconsistent work loads.
Warehouse loader (Former Employee), Riverside, CA – August 23, 2013
A typical day at work would include, making a diagram to load the truck, wrapping each pallet to place in truck to be shipped out. I have learned to work as a team and be responsible with what im expected to do at the work place. The co-workers were all hard working guys that spent countless amounts of hours around. The hardest part about the job is – more... the manual labor. – less
kind of hard work but the people i was working with made it fun
