Over all work experience
Machine Operator/Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Reserve, LAApril 12, 2013
Most typical days at work was very standard starting with all safety precautions. First checking all materials, machines and products for safety,from there production. Products according to schedule product release sometimes having a steady day and or difficult day. What I learned most while there during my time period was team work, how successfully – more... multi task while given strong commitments through out the whole day.The hardest part of the job was getting all to become one as team which take a lot of strong leadership and motivation. Which would conclude us giving the best production and gaining great success. – less

Very demanding company - but high tempo job
Manager (Current Employee), ILApril 11, 2013
Pros: high tempo, never boring, many chances to advance
Cons: don't expect to have much of a life. - low pay and many hours
Company expects loyalty from employees, but does not give loyalty to employees. Pay is unfair and it takes forever to try and get it fixed. Company has potential, but has a bad reputation with it's customers and you are continuously fighting that.

Merchandiser (Current Employee), Youngstown, OHDecember 21, 2012
Pros: some freedom
Cons: long hours, draining job, few holidays to share with your family.
I'm one of few females in this industry and I work 10x harder than most of my male co-workers yet i don't get the same advancement opportunities as them. It's like I work at the "he man woman haters club."

January 12, 2013

If you are to advance you might have to stay on top of the equal pay thing as well. It is a hard place to work being a female. I have worked as a merchandiser and it was very physical especially for my age however there are some freedoms being a merchandiser. Interacting with customers is always nice and you get the opportunity to make a good impression for the company.

Account Sales Manager (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIDecember 18, 2012
Pros: it paid the bills.
Cons: not enough time in my daily schedule to develop relationships with the accounts
A typical day at work was going from account to account to check their inventory. The schedule was so tight that there was only 5-10 minutes to converse with the manager. I thought the position was different when I accepted it. I stayed there long enough to determine that there was not an upcoming advancement opportunity.

Being at work 30 min prior to my shift to get a clear run down on production for the day.I've learned that being under staff causes
mistakes.I loved my co-workers and enjoyed being a team player.
