Production tech / packer (Former Employee) – Tennessee – February 24, 2017
I learned a lot about how the Vicks inhalers are made and learned about blow moulding somewhat. Management like communication skills. Not a very clean plant but I enjoyed working with people as a team. Teamwork is necessary on any job. The hardest part of the job was working 3- 12hour shifts one week and off 2days and then 5- 12hour shifts and off three days.
No good benefits such as insurance not hot food no incentives to do better or move up.
I really liked and enjoyed my job for these reasons.
Attendant (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – March 12, 2015
A typical day at work would be to check the gates, switch the shifts and check notes from previous shifts. I had a very good group of co-workers. The hardest part of my job was when the elevators were out of service.
Vendor (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 11, 2014
I would go in at 6 in the evening we would go through security then sign in. we would have a very quick meeting and stretch right after the meeting would be over. the thing i liked about this job was that we would get free water. the reason why i didn't like it was that we didn't get any breaks.

Clerk (Former Employee) – Long Island City, NY – September 6, 2013
Tri-State is a great company with a lot hard working people. I am very thankful with them for giving me an opportunity at such a young age and with no type of experience. They had the patience to teach everything I know today. A typical day at work started by me getting there on time and writing down all the messages left on voicemail before my boss arrived. The thing I had most trouble in at first was inventory but I had great co-worker that toke the time to help me. I had quit for personal reason and it wasn't easy.
I have a very routine schedule from 7am to 4pm. The managers gives us our assignments for the day and we handle them accurately and in a timely manner. It get very hot on most days but the company helps by providing lots of fluids(water and gator aid).
