hard work, low pay, harsh management
Sorter (Former Employee) – Bristol, CT – June 9, 2017
You will work hard for your money, and not get very much at all. Depending on your position, you will be expected to sort through 2 to 6 thousand pounds of donations every day. You will be exposed to dead animals, trash, filthy clothing and products, broken glass, and every other thing that people have thrown away (donated). And if you should be injured on the job, expect a miserable time filing a workman's comp claim-- they will fight you every step of the way. The work environment is harsh-- you are exposed to the outside temperature most of the time because they keep the loading doors open for deliveries. If you can put up with this, you can work here while you look for a better job-- they have a very high turnover rate, so they won't be surprised when you leave.
