Task Coordinator (Current Employee), Lebanon, TN – July 14, 2014
In a typical work day I would come in, log on to the computer and begin prepping the work for the operators. After the start of shift I will assign and monitor all work that needs to be done in my department, handling any issues that may come about along side my Lead and Supervisor. I have learned to work with Synapse and how to work in a corporate – more... environment. I have learned many leadership skills and other odds and ends in some of our other departments.We have decent management. I won't complain because considering everything that is thrown on them on a day to day basis they still hold it together and finish successful. We've gained a lot of new outside management but they should be fine when we get them up to speed.The co-workers are majority good hardworking people trying to make a honest living. The hardest part of my job is separating myself from the pickers and drivers. I'm very close with the employes, considering that i started from the very bottom of the company. I feel like i understand them and see their point of view on a lot of aspects that others of the leadership team don't. The most enjoyable part of the day would have to be working in a decent environment with awesome people. – less
Forklift Operator/Material Handler (Former Employee), Granite City, IL – January 22, 2014
Cons: see above
I will never work for OHL anywhere out of fear of it being just like the last one I worked. Was hired without being told of expectations. Such as being on call and called in early. (When I worked there and left for home they would call you 4 hrs prior to your schedule and tell you to be in early THAT day/night. And if you didn't answer your cell...Whoooooboyyyy!) – more... I have NOTHING good to say about that company and warn everyone from working there. They ripped me off on pay too. I negotiated for a higher wage and when my 90 days came around they said I got it when they hired me because they give all that up front....REALLY!? WHO DOES THAT!? THAT MAKES NO SENSE! – less
Horrible place of employment!!! Do not recommend getting a job here!!
Puller/Stocker (Current Employee), Chambersburg, PA – December 29, 2013
Pros: its a job, its in a dry place, if no one gets hurt for a long time they give you a little party to celebrate them saving money
Cons: everything about the company
Its a borderline sweatshop! hot as hell in the summer and winter coat weather in the winter. They nickle and dime you the whole way.. They pay $9 hour and charge you $29 for a mandatory drug test, that comes out of your first check! (because u make such good money) It is mandatory that you do a certain amount of work per hour or you will be "let go" – more... and to accomplish that amount of work you are literally almost at a run to accomplish it, No one should have to work that hard for $9! but they say the harder you work there is an incentive package! if you completely run and move as fast as you possibly can you can make up to $12 hour if you double their production.. and there is always room to move up in the company, but all the good positions are taken.. so the most you can actually move up is floor management. I chose first shift cause that works best for me.. but what they did not tell you is your working 10 hour days and you have to be not only in the building but all the way at the production line, at 3:30 am where the time clocks are.. They offer you a health package for $60 week out of your check.. but the down side is its not even a big enough package to cover the "Obamacare garbage" so it is basically useless.. They give you holidays off.. unpaid.. and only that one day of the holiday.. I could go on and on but I think you get the point.. don't make the same mistake I did. – less
LTO (Former Employee), winchester, va – December 18, 2013
Supervisors are lazy, bad communication throughout the building, over worked, not enough bodies on forklifts, a lot of ignorance, too many bosses I'm pretty sure everybody who works there is a supervisor. Bad business practices. Good luck.
Material Handler (Former Employee), New Smithville, PA – December 11, 2013
typical day at work: come in at the beginning of your shift, set up your station, pull a box off the line and begin your day. The hardest part of the job was the weather condition, it was always cold and we had to work in coats which was really uncomfortable.
Auditor / Receiver (Former Employee), TN – November 30, 2013
Pros: getting the product to the customers.
Cons: hours, not that great benefits
Working at OHL I was an Auditor and a Receiver. As an Auditor I made sure that stores had the correct perishable/ non-parishable food product, items, and quantity of each . As a Receiver I received perishable/ non-parishable food product, items, and quantity of each into the facility. My duties consisted of, verification of the product, and quantity – more... and quality of the product, and year end inventory. I was trained in AIB audits, and became fluent in LMS Red Prairie. I had a total number of 3 ½ years of experience using our WMS system called Synapse. The management was very serious and professional, but not all of my co-workers were. The hardest part of my job was making sure I had everything like the numbers, labels, and skew codes correct. I didn't really enjoy this job, but if I had to choose something I enjoyed I guess it would be the fact that I was apart of the process of getting our product to our customers. – less
