Hard
Warehouse selector (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJuly 21, 2017
very physical and you need to bust your butt to keep up. They run by minutes so everything you do counts. If your not scared of hard and physical work then this is for you. Unfortunately for my I had other issues to deal with.
Pros
fat checks
Cons
energy draining

Ever changing environment
Clerk (Current Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAJuly 19, 2017
With the company breaking rank and bringing in green younger management from other supply chain companies the environment has changed drastically. Importance on job/life balance has flown out the window and bottom line is now the holy grail. Management has taken on a micro management approach leaving little room for respect of each other let alone the warehouse personnel. Focus has shifted from "What you do to help" to "What you don't do" leaving an extremely low moral amongst 600+ employees.
Pros
Excellent benefits and profit sharing
Cons
Micro-management, low moral, difficult to advance

picker/selector 2 (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 17, 2017

The Enjoyable part was some of the people.

Cons
mangement and there rates for picking were way to high

A job place for a particular person
Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Carneys Point, NJJuly 17, 2017
Whether you will be happy or not at this workplace depends on what job you do as well as what shift you work. Lack of discipline makes it very common for workers to slack off causing issues among the workers who actually work. A company of the modern day where its impossible to get fired regardless how bad an employee you are which makes it a bad environment for good skilled workers who put forth effort.
Pros
hard to get fired
Cons
not rewarded for hard work

Not where you wanna work.
Selector IV (Current Employee) –  Battleboro, NCJuly 16, 2017
Don't recommend this job to anyone. Company been in business for years, but can't decide if you can get off work at a decent time. Expect you to work 14 hours for example, then turn right back around the next day and do 12. Not your typical job.
Pros
Decent pay.
Cons
Don't know when you get off. Working all night long, Paid biweekly.

Good for a while...and then reality hits
Management/Lead (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXJuly 15, 2017
It's all about the management. As they go, so does the company. The particular place I was at was just stressful. The upper management placed unrealistic demands on their employees and make the workplace stifling. They never came to the warehouse except to stir up confusion and pit supervisor's against employees.
The warehouse manager is unqualified for the position. The individual has no knowledge of what to do in the event that person was the only one that had to run the day to day operations. The WM just stays in their office and dictates and delegates and is never held accountable for anything.
And don't even think about going to HR.
They really need to rethink their strategy if they are serious about retention.
Pros
Off Days/Benefits
Cons

Very busy company that is going through changes as the company expands. It is a great company to work if you want overtime and don't mind working the long hours.

Easily the worst driving job I've had.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Lewisville, TXJuly 9, 2017
I've never worked anywhere that cared less about drivers than the MBM (McLane subsidiary) facility in Lewsiville. Yes, you can make money. But I made roughly the same at my next job, which was a far better environment.
Pros
There are no "pros" to this job.
Cons
Everything
