imports (Former Employee), charlotte nc – April 22, 2013
Pros: co workers are sweet and pleasant
Cons: save yourself and dont apply
A typical workday would begin with not knowing type of mood the manager would be in which would determine your entire day. The typical mood is mean irritable condescending and rude. Your spoken to like a child and put down publicly in front of your co workers. Your told to do un-compliant work procedures and reprimanded if you don't. If a true government – more... audit was performed in this office it would be shut down and fined. Management plays favorites so even if you are a wonderful employee you will not be rewarded or treated fairly if management has decided you are competition. You are better off being a puppet where you allow your strings to be pulled than a compliant hard working and ethical person with a drive to succeed. In fact the more drive you have the more you will be seen as a threat and will be pushed out the door. The manager will throw employees under the bus even to their own customers. The hardest part of the job is absolutely working with the manager and the unsolicited abuse she dishes out. Human Resources is fully aware of the reign of terror and has not remedied it in any way. – less
Sr Manager (Current Employee), Brentwood, TN – March 25, 2013
Pros: flexible work schedule, challenging projects, great co-workers
I work in the corporate office and have had a few career opportunities that were a good fit within the organization. I've been lucky to have a great manager and supportive executive leaders. My work is diverse, and allows me to manage multiple projects at once (which is a challenge I enjoy). I have great departmental co-workers and supportive colleagues – more... throughout the organization. OHL is a faced-paced environment offering the opportunity to showcase your talents and grow your skill-set. – less
Operator 1 (Current Employee), Excelsior Springs, MO – March 4, 2013
Pros: pros? does putting in my 2 weeks notice count?
Cons: horrible management, total joke for befits, favoritism, slave drivers
OHL does not care about the employees one bit unless you are one of the 'brown nosers' of the crew. They require certain production results for each worker, that is supposed to be a set rate for everyone, but again goes back to how much backside you kiss. It took over 6 months to get paid for the sorry excuse for a raise we got, and I am still waiting – more... for unpaid overtime from several months ago. DO NOT WORK HERE UNLESS THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE!!! And if you must work here, I'd advise you to keep looking for other employment. Back to production, I would catch complaints from management for 'only making 115%' when they know I can easily get 120+. While the guy next to me that has been there going on 10 years pulls an 80% and nothing is said to him. They don't care you, your family, or situations at home. One of my coworkers was pointed for calling in because he was in a pretty serious accident on his way to work. Wonder why this place is always hiring? Now you know. – less
CSR (Former Employee), Plainfield, IN – February 13, 2013
Pros: there are none
If you like being micro managed then this company is for you. Current managemnet is made up of males only in the Plainfield area. They tend to do write ups on anyone for any reason. If you like living in constant fear of losing your job, then dont come work for them and not to mention Human Resources is a joke. So happy not to be working there and because – more... of the current management, I would sugget you goe somewhere else unless you are desprite – less
Material Handler - Fiskars Account (Former Employee), Memphis, TN – January 8, 2013
Pros: great people
Cons: great health care
Love working with the customer's of a warehouse because the things you need to know they right there to show you. The workers was great didnt have to stay on our backs to get the work done because we had a mind frame when we walked in the door we came to work.
Employment History Fork Lift Driver (Former Employee), Summerville, SC – November 29, 2012
Pros: days off with pay.
A typical day at ohl consist of getting to work and preparing the devanners to unload containers. Containers are mostly twenty foot containers with 40,000 pounds of coffee that has to be put on pallets and stored away in locations that are called lots. The hardest part about the job was stacking certain kinds of coffee that came in real tight burlap – more... bags. These bags stack to high for a regular lift so we would have to use a ten thousand pound lift to stack. This takes alot of skill with using your equipment. – less
