The worst
Selector 2 (Former Employee), Battleboro, NCAugust 6, 2014
Pros: saftey luncheons, good door prizes
Cons: people above you are unprofessional, unorganized, disrespectful
This is one of the worst companies I've worked for! You don't have a set time to get off. If you have to be there all day to finish your work then you will. You are not guaranteed 40 hours every week, so sometimes you will have a short check. Supervisor and DC Manager think they are god. They feel like they cant talk to you any kind of way. They make – more... up rules as they go along. The pay is ok but you have to work like a slave for it. – less

Unhealthy environment
worker (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VAJune 11, 2014
Pros: okay pay
Cons: poor management decisions
Honestly it is ridiculous there and management plays their favorites based on how willing you are to suck up to them. They take advantage and they treated great hard working employees below the belt . Firing people or claiming they quit when they didn't. John Williams should NOT be in management or a super visor position at all. He is sneaky, faulty – more... and will only use you to get higher up in life. He has no loyal to anyone, even if they had been closer then family since child hood years. It makes me sick to see someone like him getting benefits while others who really deserved that position are suffering from a situation that was taken completely out of context. Management and cooperate needs to get it together and pay closer attention to their workers character and skills and stop acting like this is high school listening to drama. – less

Disbacthers have there favorites!
driver (Former Employee), DanvilleApril 7, 2014
Pros: good pay but you earned it
Cons: long hours and hard work
On extra board when you start out and senior drivers pick and choose what loads they want and leave the low paying loads for the new guys. Constantly switching people you run with while on extra board. I was lucky enough to end up getting a route when I started after a few months. But after the six months was up time to rebid and ended up on extra board. – more... Main disbacther had his favorites and would give guys below you better runs then offered to you. Benefits and pay was good. But when in sleeper berth on the elog you still had to help co driver unload at stops. I would not recommend this place to anyone. – less

Stuck in the stone ages
Order selector cooler/freezer (Current Employee), Battleboro, NCMarch 12, 2014
Pros: it's better than being unemployed
Cons: unorganized, old school selecting methods, super cold freezer, do not give proper breaks.
Very unorganized warehouse their selecting methods are way behind the times spends little to no money on technology as far as selecting and the freezer is set -20 F and they do not give you the opportunity to warm up and if the supervisors are in a rush to leave they will cancel your breaks.

this company could be soo much better with very little work
maint tech 3 (Former Employee), vaFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: they have decent events /appreciation and decent benefits and pay scales are alright for area
Cons: they will treat you like a leper if you arent part of the "click" and force you out.
as former employee of this company I may seem jaded . the work is very physical and management has absolutely no clue as to how any of the work is done as all the low lvl managers are just out of college and come and go very frequently and it seems there only purpose is to be a buffer of blame for the upper lvl managers when something doesn't go right – more... . The company has an innate desire to micro manage everything the employees are doing and seem to only want to nitpick about what they think will improve production and donot want to listen to more experienced individuals who have been around and have already tried those same attempts .
the departments show extreme favoritism to the point where they will lie about what actually happened to cover for a favorite in there department but if you have no such status you will be written up for sneezing in the wrong place and when you bring up these inequalities in discussion upper management treats you like you are a troublemaker and its your fault that other teammates will not work with you .
the review process is a joke at the end of the year when someone who couldn't possibly do your job tells you with a straight face that you don't know enough about what you are doing and dings you for it and when you ask for examples of such things they cannot do so . nor do they appreciate when you go out of your way to get something done that your teammates have not been able to do for days they don't even say thank you for getting that done . \

But there are a lot of good people there that go to work every day and bust there butts to get the work done and I feel that the company doesn't really appreciate there hard work when they get walked over regularly by other teammates that do half the work and get away with it because there managers cover for them . – less

hard work, no time for yourself, management has own agenda
Warehouse Specialist (Current Employee), Hebron, KYJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: job security
Cons: no life out of work, long hours, poorly managed, very very physical
very physical work, usually long hours
is a secure job, unless you can't meet requirements
good pay but not for the hours and the life you no longer have
management is not what it should be they do whatever just to please bosses above them and not to make it an easier day on yourself or other team members

Be prepared to work extensive holiday hours, have alot of overtime, and be near perfect with attendance no excuses.
Selector (Former Employee), Jessup, PADecember 11, 2013
Long hours, can never find management, no sympathy for things that are out of your control, (i.e. flat tire, car troubles, child illness, car accident), people are great to work with, pay is great, hours arent worth it.

Most miserable three years of my life
executive (Former Employee), templeSeptember 2, 2013
Even though they take on going surveys, they are really clueless. The lady that runs HR for the company is soooo full of herself, she actually thinks they will be named one of the best places to work. She is actually perpetuating the problem. The senior management thinks that they need to act like truckers or order selectors in order to be accepted. – more... the result is the place is full of fowl language (from the top), full of womanizers from the smallest distribution center to the corporate office in Temple, and full of people that fudge numbers and fabricate results. The day that they offered me a promotion was the same day I had decided to give them my resignation. They asked why I wanted to leave since I was doing a job worthy of promotion. I told them the tings that I just wrote here and they decided it was best for me to leave immediately. They were soooo right. – less

Great Benefits and bonuses
Inventory Control Specialist (Current Employee), Northfield, MNAugust 29, 2013
Pros: benefits, paid time off
Cons: no holidays, not enough family time
They have a great benefit system and paid time off. Not enough Holidays, too much expecting you to change your holiday plans for their bad business plans. Company takes on too much and expects everyone else to pay for it (long hours, last minute schedule changes, no raises)
