This is a great place to work at. Every one is easy to got along with. The work is hard but keeps you busy the time goes by fast. The pay is good and so are the hours.

The warehouse is a joke at best
Current warehouse worker (Current Employee) –  Bossier City, LouisianaMay 6, 2017
The temp agency lies about your schedule. You can begin as early as 5am and work up to 15 hours in a day. Management simply does not care about employees. Injuries are rampant. The pay starts at $9 per hour on the floor, and they work you like a slave. Don't even think about working an 8 hour day. 9, 10, 12, and upwards every day. Some temps have been there over a year. If they do hire you on full time, 50 cents and hour is a "significant" increase to management. Noochie is great, but most other managers are incompetent and uncaring. Stay far away from this place.
Pros
None at all

Very bad pay and only temp work
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Bossier City, LAMay 18, 2016
This job has very bad pay and then will turn around and "lay you off." This is just temp work and they won't hire you back either.

Poor management.
Production Member (Current Employee) –  Lewisport, KYFebruary 24, 2016
This used to be an awesome place to work. When we had a good plant manager and supervisor it was great. The pay is garbage, but the benefits of flexibility and moral made it bearable. Now with an unqualified plant manager and a "floor supervisor" that knows absolutely nothing about the floor, it is awful. Poor production planning leads to minimal hours one day, and beyond maximum hours the next. Plant manager is rude, unfriendly, and makes it known that he is only going to be there for a short period of time. Plant manager talks to employees like dogs, tells us everything we are doing wrong on the floor, yet never leaves his office.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor management.

Easy Work but no set schedule, and poor benefits.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Clinton, ILAugust 24, 2012
You could work two hours one day and 15 the next day with no warning or planning, the benefits are the worst I have ever seen, I had to travel 35 miles to see a dentist or eye doctor, then pay for it myself and wait six to eight weeks to get paid back. The HR staff will tell you stories, of why you are underpaid, and lie about the dollar amount. They also don"t care about your family life, whatever you do do not allow your children to get ill.
Pros
some good people to work with
Cons
hours, benefits and no team setting
