FORKLIFT DRIVER/OPERATOR (Former Employee), Indianola, MS – November 13, 2014
On a usual day we come in grab our equipment. When we get the okay to start everyone starts with no problem. Everyone is always in a good mood in joking with each other to make it a great place to work. The hardest part is being new and witnessing everyone fly by you on every assignment.
Pros: getting to try some of the product line when new items come out to the public.
Cons: when shipment is delayed and the store has in upcoming ad.s.
Entering price changes while assisting retail customers with questions/concerns. I learned what is needed for the pricing scale and working with GM/HBC product line. Assisting the Category Manager with projects, price changes, buyers fair booklet for sales and ordering. Had a unit of 3 other Assistants that worked in other product lines to assistant – more... their Category Managers. The hardest part of the job is to be modest with your work. The most enjoyable part of the job is communicating with customers that depend and trust you to get the job done. – less
Warehouse/ Transportation Superintendent (Current Employee), Oglesby, IL – April 15, 2014
Pros: advancement through the ranks
Cons: time cut short due to business change
Over the last almost 16 years I have learned a lot of techniques and skills and have grown with the company.

I am greatly to have worked for a location such as this and had the opportunity to work with many talented individuals. It is now – more... time for many of us to move on due to a business change that requires extreme downsizing. I do not regret for one moment working here and along side some wonderful people. – less

Order Selector/Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PA – March 11, 2014
Pros: benifits and pay
Cons: expected more then the average person can handle
grab the pallet jack and start picking orders. learned how to do work quickly while being safe. management was always willing to work with ya. co-workers were always helpful. hardest part was not having enough relaxing time but the pay and benefits were worth it. but they relocated to far away
Cons: horrible management, long hours, miserable work environment.
Absolutely incompetent management who are rude and threaten your job at every turn. The management team needs to learn to respect their employees. Most of the supervisors are clueless as to what they are suppose to do and have a select few favorite employees that are allowed to do whatever they want. The rest of us are forced to work long hours, work – more... on our off days, and work in different depts. everyday. Pay is ok but for the hours and what is expected it is not worth it. This is just for the Advantage Logistics SERF facility. – less

Checker (Current Employee), St. Louis, MO – February 15, 2014
Pros: insurance, occasional free meals (for holidays), great team
Cons: short inconsistant breaks, not enough hours, very little recognition for hard work
This was a great job to go to after working in a small business. I got a better feel of a professional environment. I handled more money which made me a lot more comfortable with handling it day to day. The hours are quite flexible and make it easy to still work around school or another job. My coworkers are great and made me feel very welcome from – more... day one. The hardest part of the job would have to be long amounts of downtime or long amounts of uptime. They're both manageable, just not ideal. – less
IT Specialist I (Former Employee), Boise, ID – February 11, 2014
Pros: fairly decent pay
Cons: no benefits
A typical work day consisted of receiving calls from retail store users or corporate users. Users would call in with issues ranging from problems with registers not working to PCs not running properly. This position taught me many things and also got me more proficient at other skills I had already learned. I learned how to dial into PCs and registers – more... and various handheld devices using various remote applications. I worked with some very knowledgeable and helpful people. The work environment was pleasant and non threatening. The most difficult part of the job was the lack of positive feedback from management and very little room for advancement. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking with various people all over the country and helping them with their problems. – less
