Business has excellent people, who are knowledgeable and devoted to the job. Management is lacking a bit, which is where a lot of issue arise. Pays mediocre, as they count bonus to make them average, but bonuses are not guarantee. Great place to start a career and lot of folks retire there. There's no clear path of growth or development. Jobs can be stagnant for years. Moral is low in some departments.
Great People, Pays OK, Some perks
Low moral, pays ok but not good, Management needs improving.

You might get fired if you're on time to work.the Shipping supervisor makes the job more stressful than it already is. They don't really care about you. If you have a family emergency and you can't show up to work they won't care or understand your situation and will doc you a point from the 4 points you have. If you reach the 4 point limit your fired.
Shipping (Former Employee) – Kilgore Texas – February 29, 2016
The jobs pays pretty good, but the turnover rate is extremely high. If someone did some research on the numbers of overall turnovers since they opened it would well into the thousands.That is ridiculous!! Management is poor at best. It is ran more like a circus than a place of employment. Management is too busy looking for ways to fire personnel than ways to retain them.

Orgill was an awesome place to work. I was in the shipping department and they do require production standards which can be hard to reach. Overall the atmosphere was great the people I worked with were awesome, but the shipping manager forced me out of the building she is hard to take and is always on your case about little things which makes the job a lot harder than it really is.
Stocker/Receiver (Former Employee) – Inwood, WV – November 11, 2015
My work started at four o'clock am,( which I enjoyed because after my shift was over I still had full daylight to do home choirs or whatever), the hardest part of the job for me was getting a routine accomplished, fellow employees were easy to get along and work with, management seemed to be available and able to handle almost anything that came up, to me the most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the orders go out to the customers mission accomplished.
Good pay for area but with pushy management and unrealistic production standards.

They have little to no time to train employees and leave it to other employees to train you. You are help to a very high production standard which other employees will throw you under the bus to meet. Though most co workers are personable and hardworking. Management can go from personable and encouraging to overbearing and unbearable to the point of quitting and they frequently rotate so you never know who will be your supervisor next. Work is boring and mechanical, same thing day in and day out. If you crave diversity in your work this is not for you, but on the other hand if you are fine with doing the same laborious tasks everyday and quickly this job is great. A typical day goes as follows: put box in shelf, rack, on pallet and repeat throughout the day with two 20 min breaks whether you work 8 hours or 12. The good part about this job is weekends off, great benefits, good pay for the area. If you are injured you will be made to sit in a hallway and play security guard so as to not break their fabricated injury free streak. If you are lucky you will stay around long enough to learn how to use a forklift and other such warehouse machinery. Don't bother giving two weeks notice you will be sacked immediately and walked out by a supervisor. This place has a very high turnover rate and you are constantly dealing with new people that don't know what they are doing because they cannot get people to stay for more than a month or so. people working shipping, replenishment or order filling can expect to work 12 to 15 hours a day consistently.
benefits, paid holidays and vacation, living wage.
production standards, management, little training, short breaks, constant turnover, very strenuous work.
not to worried about driver safety,more concerned with deadlines and write up of driver's.
former driver (Former Employee) – albany ny – September 5, 2015
delivering overweight pallets with basic floor pallet jacks,poor loading procedures,its not about safety,its about money,and being right all the time,and they spend more time trying to write driver's up and not backing them up vs public scrutiny.not a good way to treat their driver's,other than that the money is good if you never want time at home,or have doctor appointments,or personal matters.
constant write ups, for remedial stuff, bad loads, poor management, over bearing, dispatch, and that's because they have to many non driver's doing work they shouldn't be doing.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Kilgore, TX – August 22, 2015
its an opportunity to learn a new environment. I want to own my own business and love to learn new things to use towards my goals. I have learned about a headset paced order pulling system instead of pulling your orders for shipments on a daily basis by paper work. pros and cons regarding either way. good environment and opportunities. I am moving to Sherman, Texas so I am needing to find a forever home close to Sherman,Texas.
Was a excellent place to work until the recession hit
driver (Former Employee) – Dracut, MA – July 19, 2015
hurry....hurry....hurry....make your deadlines, but obey all the traffic laws. Safety, until it interferes with profit. No cell phone while driving, but answer the phone when management calls. Management with NO driving experience telling the driver what to do.
Inbound Material Handler (Current Employee) – Hurricane, UT – July 6, 2015
Working with this Company is very tough, you go in, and you sweat from the time you show up till the time you get home. The management expects a lot from there employees. they set Production rates and expect you to be able to hit those rates as best as you can. This is expected if your working for this position. Management take good care of there workers. they give them the opportunity to stretch and warm up 15 minutes before letting them go onto the work floor. They make sure that there employees are hydrated, you get rewarded for you hard work. and you get holidays and weekends off.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – March 25, 2015
I believe Orgill is a wonderful place to work. Most of the employees that I know are well-rounded respectable individuals with strong work ethics. I value these characteristics in a work setting. I deal with customers issues or concerns daily and learn something new almost everyday. The most enjoyable part to my day is knowing that I have satisfied a customer.
When I was hired, I was very excited because they seemed very professional until I set foot on the door. I was hired in a position which my first two weeks was very difficult because no one had time to train me- then after my 3rd week- I was offered another position because supposedly It was a better fit for me...I was trained in 3 days and after 4 weeks I was let go because I wasn't meeting the job requirements- The person that trained was very nasty and every time I asked a question she seemed very bothered, not to mention all the trash she spoke about the previous person that worked there. On one occasion she called me by the name of the person she trashed so much, and I called her out on it- from that moment on it was down hill. Then I was escorted out of the building like I was some kind of criminal. But is ok. I'm definitely not a good fit to work in a place like that. Blessings coming my way!!!
boot leg training- no teamwork at all- youre on your own
