Disappointing, Awful Managment, Awful Supervisors, Unorganized, Unrealistic Standards, Waste Of Time
Pros: free dunkin' donuts brand coffee.
Cons: unrealistic expectations, awful management, awful supervisors, over hired employees, no help, unorganized.
A typical day at work started out by you having to get there to clock in and first come first serve grab an order selector headset. For a small warehouse they over hired and if you can't help not being able to grab an order selector headset or electric pallet jack, the supervisors and managers will look at you like it's your fault that you did not get one even though it is their jobs to see everyone has a headset and electric pallet jack, even before the preshift meeting occurs.
The managers and supervisors will lie to you and tell you that you have 90 days to make they're 100% production quota and I was there not even 2 weeks and they fired me. If you are a slow learner, do not waste your time here. The management here expects you to kill yourself trying to make their production quota by your 3rd day on the job or in less time.
Also, they need to get organized with stage zoning. Other warehouses I worked had stage zone signs everywhere and even a computer system to tell you exactly where the product goes. This place doesn't. You have to quickly find the route number of your order(s) as fast as possible, no matter where in the warehouse before time gets wasted and your production numbers go down.
The Order Selector headphones are awful.
They do not work correctly most of the time.
also, you have to learn how to be able to read and stack items in certain ways, from the order sheets and that was pretty confusing and of course management and supervisors will talk down to you like you should have learned how to do everything there on the first day and will get rid of you anyways – more... even though your suppose to be allowed to have 90 days to learn everything such as order selecting in the freezer, cooler and dry side of the warehouse. Order Picking on the dry side of the warehouse is a big aggravating pain and if you can't meet the managements expectations as far as "moving fast" goes then they will get rid of you.
This job does nothing but cause stress and aggravation due to it's unrealistic standards, They fire people so much and people quit so much; yet the higher ups in charge and warehouse management probably wonder why the Employee Turnover rate is higher then the divorce rate in this country.
I learned nothing from this job.
My coworkers were nice.
The hardest part of this job was the unrealistic standards you have to meet (100% quota is difficult to make if you are working on the dry side section of the warehouse). Except for the free Dunkin Donuts brand coffee in the breakroom, there was nothing enjoyable about this job.
Not for honest slow learners and not for honest people who struggle to keep a job because of an employers unrealistic expectations. – less
