Family need only apply
Outbound Lead (Former Employee) –  Lakeland, FLJune 13, 2015
Saddle Creek is one of those companies to where if you don't know anyone who works there or is a family member, you aren't getting any promotions. They work you too hard for not enough pay. The management there are too concerned with production rather than their employees.
Pros
Christmas party, but that's also rigged.
Cons
Too many to list...just don't work there.

Fast pace business that consistenly surrounded by daily challenges
Transportation/Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 12, 2015
Typical work day is about 12 hours. The Job does prepare more for multiple parts of the transportation business. Teaches you to perform tasks and objectives that allows you to evolve in your communication skills. However the job can be very time consuming which frequently creates an unbalance in your work and personal life. I like the fact that the business constantly evolves which creates a challenging environment. There is also an open door policy that allows individuals to express ideas and concerns of any issues that may arise in the workplace.
Pros
good team environment inside the work place
Cons
work and personal life can sometimes be unbalanced

Family Owned Company with a "Whatever it Takes" approach to Business
Industrial Engineer (Current Employee) –  Lakeland, FLAugust 14, 2014
As a family owned company, the culture is very warm and welcoming which was great as a new employee.

The "Whatever it Takes" mindset causes employees to stretch the capabilities of current systems and has become a nightmare from a managerial perspective.

Most of the issues are good issues to have (i.e. explosive growth, too much business to pay attention to, wide array of customers and industries, etc...) and management seems to have an eye for identifying those that are vital to the company's future.
Pros
people, management, customers
Cons
localized knowledge, lack of standardization

Do Your Homework before accepting...seriously
Management (Current Employee) –  HarrisburgJuly 20, 2013
Not a great work environment-forget team work it doesn't exist there. Sarcastic Management unless you're female. Low pay. Most enjoyable part is paid holidays. It's not anywhere near what they will promise you in the interview.
Pros
it's a job for entry level to add to your resume
Cons
don't have any ideas or suggestions. management is a know-it-all and sarcastic.

Don't work here!!!
Order picker (Former Employee) –  Elwood, ILMay 21, 2013
Supervisors are in or fresh out of training program. They have good ideas but no realistic way to implement them. They all had zero operations experience and don't know how to lead operators that are 10-20 years older than them. All management except for two managers, heard they fired ops manager for no reason at all, is from somewhere else in the company, mostly from southeast US. Many people came from other facilities to help but ran things like their operation then left. Nothing could ever get accomplished. Some visitors in particular liked to throw many people under the bus then lie about doing it. RF system used is horrible. You can tell they went with cheapest one. Working 10-12 hrs a day plus Saturdays was expected. If you didn't work a Saturday, it was frowned upon. All temps used and they didn't have a care about anything. More temps than company paid people. They damaged equipment, racking, stole stuff because it was expensive makeup and stuff that was shipped.
Pros
spot bonuses, little supervision
Cons
untested supervisors, horrible wms, no work/life balance
