Great Pay, Good Values that are not upheld
Warehouseman (Former Employee) – Suffolk, VA – September 29, 2016
Many employees do not perform to standard and are not held accountable. Those that are reliable, top performers are required to pick up the slack. This wouldn't be a problem if the compensation reflected their work ethic, however everyone makes the same amount of money after 1 year. No one leaves until the work is done, even when the next shift comes in. So those that are slacking are essentially cutting into other's personal time. There's tons of overtime and long hours. Warehousemen are scheduled for 10 hours, but typically stay 12 using back-up equipment for the remainder of the shift. Some really good people work on the floor, and some supervisors care very much for the employees. Management will lie just to keep employees out of their ear, it does not keep them quiet though. This results in a lot of negativity, frustration, and ager being expressed on the floor almost constantly. If you think there will be a schedule bid because you were told so, then don't count on it. If a certain procedure is "temporary," then just get used to it. This is extremely good pay for a job requiring no degree or vocational school, but it certainly is earned with the work put in and the unnecessary stress that is generated from downed equipment, understaffing, long hours, and a poor work/life balance. The benefits are also ridiculously good, I never had to pay a copay to go to the doctor, fill a prescription, or go to the dentist. They do employee profit sharing for 401(k) instead of matching, which is WAY better.
Weekly pay, good leadmen, benefits
Work/life balance, long hours, lack of accountability
