Operations Manager (Former Employee), Geneva, IL – May 6, 2014
Pros: monthly lunches based on performance.
Cons: working weekends.
Set up plan based off of customer demands. During start-up meeting discuss plan and how to be sucessful during shifts. Management monitors throughout the day to react to any developments daily. Truck carrier arrivals was the hardest part of the day due to scheduled appointments. I enjoyed all the challenges that were endured during my employment. All – more... managers wwere helpful and I learned from them as well. – less
Inventory Control Clerk (Former Employee), Edwardsville, KS – February 11, 2014
Cons: overworked, short breaks
This job is such a misleading position. Upon getting hired for this position I thought it was going to be different. They paint a pretty picture as though its the best company around. They have NO trainers. Different people tell you so many ways on how to do something. No structure at all. They will work you until you drop and don't give one ounce about – more... anyone especially their employees. They are some of the unorganized group of people I have worked for. We had a snow storm about a week ago where everything was basically shut down. I called them to advise them I am stuck at home and cannot come. They knew this as everyone was in the same situation. I live almost an hour away and there was no way I could make it in the blizzard. They told me to come to work anyways. Obviously I didn't make it and the next day they gave me points. Like are you serious. Businesses and companies were shut down. The company doesn't care and can careless what situation comes upon. They show no compassion whatsoever and then make you work double shifts 16hrs with a 30 min lunch. If you leave at your scheduled time then you get written up. Super pathetic. After a while I just got tired of it and decided to end my employment. Not worth all the stress. – less
Picker (Current Employee), Springfield, OH – September 11, 2013
Pros: paid breaks, coats and boots provided
Days are ok , Some of the hours are not the greatest. I have learned better skills with forklift and pallet walkie. Management was ok. Co-workers was all pretty friendly. Hardest part was probably the cold sometimes it will get to you but nothing you cant handle. The best part of job is getting to do new and different task throughout the day.
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee), Theodore, AL – June 22, 2013
Pros: hands-on and involved in the process
Cons: idle time or slow periods are unwelcome events.
Over the course of the past twenty 7 years I have been instrumental in two successful start-ups, building one plant from an initial 5 people to a plant of over 600 people. I have been an integral part in two computer installations along with input into programming and operator training. I really enjoy the challenges that have come with the opportunities – more... of continuing production while expanding operations and taking on new products all at the same time. – less
Ability to jump from job to job as per supervisors' request.
Forklift operator, auditor (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – June 6, 2013
Pros: co-workers, salary, health and welfare benefits
Cons: temperature of warehouse without proper carb, training time
Pulling orders to a staging area as per electronic headset. Learned how to use headset to pull orders also learned to use a scan gun. Management would have been more beneficial if they would train employee's before issuing requests. Co-workers very helpful in learning job assignments and procedures. The cold in a refridgerated warehouse was the hardest – more... for me to conquer. There were no correct fitted insulated suits for me to wear. Got along with my co-workers and appreciated all the benefits that were given to me. Upper management treated me fairly. – less
Day starts at approximately 5am and ends around 8pm. Travel can be very demanding with very little home time. Management has an open door policy. The people are the foundation of the company. Missing out on home life. Interacting with the vast amount of people and personalities of the workforce on a daily basis.
