Get little-to-no time to use restroom during scheduled breaks. The expectations are a little off, and you are treated as though you're a child. Not permitted to talk, listen to music while you work. Condone little-to-no interaction between associates unless on break
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Moreno Valley, CA – January 30, 2016
A typical day involved all of us who worked in a certain department gathering together and stretching before we started working. Because the job required us to walk for about 8 or 9 hours. Walking around the warehouse for that amount of time was the hardest part of the job.The people there were friendly and if you asked for help you got it.
Picker (Former Employee) – West Columbia, SC – January 30, 2016
i can't speak for other job titles, but as a picker the work is very fast paced with you looking for various items small and large whilst digging through over packed bins (and there's a time limit) sometimes the items aren't there, damaged, or have an unreadable bar code! you sometimes have to locate ladders that are often not where they are supposed to be so all of that will slow you down and god forbid if you have to go the bathroom or need a drink of water! Also all errors count against you! if you're not making rate fast enough meaning the chance of you getting fired is really high! i think they have extremely high expectations that aren't in my opinion very doable for many human beings (robots maybe) you don't really get to know any of your co workers because you can't really talk to anyone you have keep moving! people with disabilities be ware! they only seem to care about numbers! they write you up for literally everything!!! they have "coaches" who i rarely see coach but just pass out various write ups. They have way too many mandatory overtime which is not ideal for those in school or who have other priorities like other jobs etc. I personally will not be returning to work for this company.
breaks are really short, unclear instructions, traffic, rude HR staff, point system
Temp (Former Employee) – Greencastle, IN – January 8, 2016
They treat you like you are garbage and always have complications with pay. I worked for SMX for nearly a year and it was the worse job experience I have ever had! In a single months time the company stole more than $250.00 from paychecks. They claimed the money was sent to my paycard and at the latest it would take 5 business days... Its been two months and I still haven't gotten paid.
Everything is based on time management. You only get a 30 minute lunch break but the lunch break is only 20 minutes due to returning to the building and clocking back in to work. The managers have there certain individuals that gets special treatment. You get two 15 min. breaks and they are only 10 because you have to run back to your work area and scan the bin and a item out of the bin as well to be clocked back in.
