to not get damage, management OK., co-workers most the time does not like to socialize with another ethnicity group, they treat you with respect, give you incentives like safety bonus, and they not push you to make your deliveries just got to keep a good pace.

"Dishonest and Unloyal"
Receptionist/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Boonton, NJMarch 20, 2015
Pros: health benefits & pay
Cons: poor training, poor management, outdated equipment
No steady structure in work procedures. Procedures changed on a daily basis there . Not a family oriented company anymore. Very micro managed. Management is poor and they have no people skills. If an issue arises, things are either swept under the rug or you are written up without them hearing your side of story. Management does not want to hear anything, They will not back you up. Whatever corporate office say's goes, then you are out the door.

productive job enviroment great working atmosphere
Lead Loader (Former Employee), Dallas,TXMarch 10, 2015
Pros: lunch cookouts
Cons: no breaks really just lunch
A typical day at work consisted of loading and unloading freight. During my time here I learned to read manifest and organize loads so that they were easy to unload at the next terminal. The management team were excellent communicators and always let us know what needed to be done in a timely manner. My co-workers were typical dock workers overall we worked as a team. The hardest part I would consider was having to re-coop freight, but it wasn't that it was hard just time consuming. The most enjoyable part of working there was the atmosphere, it was like a family especially when they had cookouts.

Good company but no advancement opportunities
PICKUP & DELIVERY CLERK (Current Employee), White Pine, TNJanuary 24, 2015
Cons: no breaks and short lunches.
Handle any problems that surface from the dock personnel and drivers. Make sure all bill of ladings and delivery receipts are properly signed and completed by customers and drivers. The hardest part of the job is working nights but the most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the dock personnel and drivers.

Forklift Operator (Current Employee), South Milwaukee, WIOctober 22, 2014
Pros: compensation, co-workers
Cons: too small of a warehouse, management can get on you
A typical day consists of a lot of activity. A lot of freight is being moved in a short period of time. The system is easy to know and far more advanced than most once you get it down.

Hard work but Good Pay
Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Jersey City, NJAugust 20, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: hard work
A typical day on the job would be that I clock in and move freight from one trailer to the next. Sometimes you might have to recoup the freight but that is not too bad. The only hard part of the job would the hrs. I work the overnight shift and its gets to you especially if working at night is not for you.

Productive, high pace environment
Forklift operator (Former Employee), los angelesJune 9, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: hard people to deal with, managers, employees.
Worked in a high pace environment where my skills were put to the best use. Lifting heavy objects, operated forklifts, palletized and broke down boxes and items. I have learned to work very well under pressure. I have also learned to build thick skin. Be a team leader and work well with others. Manage and maintain clean facility. Co workers were difficult to work with in the beginning. Most enjoyable was the company barbecues and benefits.

Challenging but a great place to work!
Dock Worker (Former Employee), Oshkosh, La Crosse, WIMay 13, 2014
Pros: free coffee, and a good manager
A typical day would consist of waking up at around 4:45 am and working till 10:00 am and sometimes 12:00pm. On the occasion of more freight I would be up by 3:00 am sometimes. In addition to the early hours, on Sundays we would be at work at 12:00 am to 8,9,10 or 11 am. My responsibilities included documenting damages by photographing dents, scrapes and cracks and recording them in a log. Also I had to adequately move freight at a quota and avoid damaging freight with my forklift.
