Stressful but great benefits
Special Services Rep (Former Employee), Johns Creek, GaJuly 15, 2014
Pros: benefits, pay
Cons: very stressful, getting fussed out
It was a fast flowing job, answering calls one after the other. This made things very stressful but kept the day going by quick which sometimes was a good thing and sometimes a bad thing. I learned a lot on how to work with customers over the phone and how to accomplish goals in a quick timely manner. In this job you get fussed out by the customer a – more... lot but having the co-workers around to help made this easier. Benefits were great and was ultimately what helped me come to work. – less

Great place to make lots of money.
Supervisor/Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Grand Prairie, TXJune 13, 2014
Pros: great money and pleanty of hours.
Cons: hostile, exposed to the elements and the shift hours.
This is definitely one of the toughest jobs around in Texas.

Since this was an open warehouse job, I was exposed to the weather elements everyday. In the summer the trailers could reach 120+ degrees plus we had the exhaust of 70+ forklifts adding to that heat.

The work was pretty labor intensive and in a hostile environment. The pace was very fast – more... and that caused most employees to become very high strung.

If you can focus and have self control at all times this is a great place to work at. If you are sensitive and take things personally you wont last a week, as the turn over rate here can prove. – less
