Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Santa Cruz, CAOctober 30, 2017
Management's job was to push low paid workers $11 per hour, to work as 3 people. Boss didnt use metrics, cruel to employees. Cutthroat employer, worse than Amazon.

Buyer (Former Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CASeptember 29, 2017
Some of the people are fun to work with and others will look to stab you in the back just to try and cover their butt. Reviews were never given annually as promised.

Typical warehouse bad management
Employee (Current Employee) –  Winchester, VAAugust 20, 2017
Don't expect to be treated like a human being. Expect to be belittled daily in morning meetings and reporting anything you are offended by to be quickly dismissed. The place has high turnover based on management and their inability to speak with employees with any resemblance of respect.
Pros
incentive checks based on facility production
Cons
Incentive checks are used as against employees

Recent changes in upper management are significantly improving Threshold
Manager (Current Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAJune 8, 2017
Departments at Threshold vary widely, so prospective candidates should evaluate the department they are applying to, and not rely solely on the reviews posted here, many of which are only relevant for manufacturing and warehouse positions, which have been justifiably described as difficult and undercompensated.
Recent changes in upper management are significant and are already leading to improvements in work conditions in most departments.
Now is a good time to join Threshold and to take advantage of the improved work conditions and to help push for continued progress.
Pros
Flexible hours, kind coworkers
Cons
Pay scale is low side for many still.

Managment Doesn't know what they are doing
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAApril 4, 2017
it's a great job if you want to work with a bunch of dysfunctional people who can't seem to figure out the floor form the ceiling. It seems that this business has a potential to be very successful but the CEO and upper management don't know what they are doing.

Worst place to work
Packaging (Former Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAMarch 4, 2017
Supervisors have No management skills what so ever. People are over worked and mistreated and the HR can careless if you have any concerns!! theres plenty of harassment, intimidation, favoritism, retaliation, verbal and mental abuse from managment and nothing is ever done about it. The pay is a joke and very little chance to grow within this company. Very unsafe place to work. In this company all they care for is making money for themselves exploiting the employees.
Pros
Really nice hard working people
Cons
Selfish owner and managment personnel

Threshold Review
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAFebruary 16, 2017
The management at Threshold was very disorganized. There isn't much upward mobility or advancement. The pay and benefits weren't all that great. If you want experience in the field you want to be in with your carrier it is a good place to work. The people that work there are very nice and it has a pretty laid back environment. It isn't a stressful place to work.
Pros
Great people, easy and not stresful, and can fit anyones schedule with other jobs.
Cons
short breaks, unorganized, low pay, no room for advancement.

This Employer is BY FAR the worst.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Winchester, VASeptember 15, 2016
Management is of poor quality, no matter how many times they preach how much they care about their employees and understand that life happes, they don't. So much favortism that its unreal. Would be a much better place to work if there were better mangers in place. Environment is unsafe when it comes to the elements of weather. Insuffient cooling measures in the summer and warehouse is cold in winter months. Co-workers were wonderful, would pick them any day over having to deal with management.
Pros
Weekends off; holidays off
Cons
POOR management

Don't work here if you have bills to pay
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Winchester, VAJune 2, 2016
If your looking for a fair paying job this is not the place for you. Every one is the same pay scale which I have never heard of before. They do have an incentive program which would work much better if everyone would put forth the same amount of effort. Employees either are fired or quit on a weekly basis. They are operating on a skeleton crew. No opportunity for advancement what so ever as everyone is paid the same. There until a better opportunity comes along.
Pros
Work schedule
Cons
Low pay, can not retain employees, unattractive benefits package

Lowest paying warehouse around
Warehouse associate (Current Employee) –  Winchester, VAJune 1, 2016
This place has a revolving front door which sucks because everyone on the floor is paid a flat rate of 10.50 an hour with no sight of a raise and a monthly bonus which is unattainable due to the constant flux of new employees.

Also the expectations of management are ridiculous as they need 10 days notice for a schedule change from the employee but will tell you the day before that you have to work 10 hours instead of 8.

Go elsewhere if you're a hard worker and avoid this company. If you like to walk around and talk all day then this is your job.
Pros
Monthly Bonus
Cons
Low pay, short notice of schedule change, no opportunity for advancement

Plenty of work
Packaging Operator (Former Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAApril 28, 2016
In 4 years I was given only 1 raise. Leaving salary was still little more than minimum wage.
I worked the graveyard shift 6 nights per week from 9pm to 5am. Very difficult hours.

the pictur for sweat shop posters
manufacturing operator (Current Employee) –  Scotts Valley, CAFebruary 27, 2015
hires the bottom of the barrel for the most part, it leaves future employment with them to be questioned, management does little to assist at times, fairness is NOT for everyone but rather those who suck up to the management, it will take advantage of their hard workers & yet not recognize their worth,
Pros
steady stable job almost guaranteed full time employment
Cons
looks for the cheapest labor force possible, demands overtime worked, english is not a necessity for employment, as low of pay as possible

For those who want to be treated like a robot, not a human being
Special Orders, Fulfillment Handler. (Current Employee) –  Santa Cruz, CaliforniaFebruary 15, 2014
I been working at the Santa Cruz warehouse, in the Special Orders Shipping. I would like to start with the manager. One of the employees had a hunger headache, so she went to the vending machine to retrieve a snack. The manager popped out and got quite literally in her face, pointing his finger in it, and yelling "NO EATING UNLESS YOU ARE ON BREAK!" She tried to explain but he only continued to shout "NUMBERS! PRODUCTION!!"
Another instance that bothered me intensely was at the team meeting. A fellow Co-worker started to respectively speak about how we are treated here, and it was followed by a round of applause from the rest of us. The Supervisor (whom I will be covering next) started to short circuit, and didn't know what to do, so the Manager stood up and shut us all up real quick, and declared an end to the meeting. That right there proves we have no voice, and our opinions are not valued!!
And now the supervisor. Where to start? What to say? He is always itching, scratching, and can't complete a full sentence. Tweaker, would be the word I'm looking for. He has the concentration of a goldfish, and I'm convinced is fearful of every human being he crosses paths with. Its like he's always short circuiting and his head is about to explode. He can't handle noises, so he enforced a new rule. No laughter, talking, or loud noises. Everyone is now operating on 100% utter misery.
Sergio is the other supervisor, and I have no complaints about how he does his job. He listens, and doesn't start rattling off about how we need to make numbers so they can take their bonuses and go
  more... on vacation. He is the only one I believe cares for the employees.

And yes, they do not want you talking, laughing, or doing anything that resembles you are remotely human. That is a real rule.

The pay is slightly above minimum wage, and as for raises, well... Lets just say there are people who have been there for ten years or more and still aren't making $10.00 an hour.
The morale there is terrible, but you have your fellow, and very understanding, co-workers to help you through the misery. I'm honestly surprised there has not been a strike there. The union is still fairly new there, but as far as i know, as useful as a a friend who spews nothing but bad advice.

Pros
Co-workers are fun and try to keep you from jumping off the product shelves.
Cons
Management, no actual raises, room for advancement but there are waiting lists for days.
