Cons: starting thru a temp service, totally unsafe equiptment operators, congested storage, and small recieving areas, tremendously unneccesarily long shifts, complete lack of structure and team work. way too many to mention.
Let me tell you about my 7 work days for Taylor Farms
They were 7 of the most most miserable working days of my life. It's a refrigerated warehouse, which isn't so bad, but they seem to not have enough working forklifts, resources or space to meet demand on a consistent basis We're basically in each others way to try and get our jobs done. The end – more... result of that is a lot of people being held up from doing their jobs, and what should be at most a 10-12 hour day, turns into a 14-16 hour work day.
They had ONE working label printer for for the entire warehouse, and it takes forever because of the process of having to put 5 labels on each incoming sku on each skid. I've spent a half hour waiting for the printer, only to have to spend 15 minutes printing up labels. A complete waste of labor
Within 5 minutes of working, I was put on a forklift, no credential check, I witnessed associates being lifted in the air, without harnesses or platforms, its clear they place more of an emphasis on "getting the job done" than they do on associates safety. I was almost sandwiched between two pallets, because of a combination of tight space,and inattentive forklift drivers. All the while, managers and dispatchers are yelling about why drivers are taking too long for trucks to be stripped, but in actuality, the fault lies within management.
In addition I keep hearing tales of people putting in 23 hour work days, only to take an hour off, and go back and work another 23-24 hours straight. That's insane, and dangerous.
I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Not unless you want to be a victim of an industrial accident. – less
