Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Berea, KyOctober 26, 2014
At True Value it was a great place, I worked through my high school career in the Summer time here. It was an interesting place to be. I learned about swimming pools, how to make keys, and many different tools and parts that we carried in our store. The management team and my coworkers were awesome. I enjoyed being there because it was a happy and upbeat – more... environment. The hardest part was learning all of the tools and parts. – less

This company sucks on all levels.
Material handler (Former Employee), morrow gaOctober 3, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits
Cons: upper management is rude and so is supervisors....
I worked for them 2 1/2 years and then they up and fired me because of quality which was later found out that it was the companys fault for not training properly. They dont train you for nothing they want you to know like the first week everything that should be known about their warehouse. That is impossible poor management all they care about is getting – more... the product out even if it is rat infested. And yes you read right there are so many rats in that place its nasty luckly i havent been infected with anything because of nastiness. This is a warehouse environment. NASTY!!!!! – less

Productive and family oriented work place
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Platte City, MOSeptember 27, 2014
Pros: locally owned and operated, competitive pay, benefits
Cons: short-no breaks, last minute schedule changes, late payroll checks
True value is a comfortable place to work. Locally owned and locally shopped, they are always wanting to cross train their employee's so that every one is useful no matter what time of year or day. Load days can be very stressful due to the amount of product that is required to be put away during operation hours. The physical labor portion of the job – more... (ie. loading mulch, concrete and propane) can be demanding escepcially during the busy season (summer, early winter). – less

Material Handler (Former Employee), Woodland, CAJune 18, 2014
Pros: non
Cons: management, pay
Management is very misleading to their employees. Warehouse is old and has no room which slows down your production. Some of the employees are ok but can do better with other companies. Hours might be ok in the summer but in the winter you barely get any hours whatsoever.

Pros: weekly pay, incentives program
Cons: horrible management
True Value is a great place to work. I enjoy going in at 3:00am and being able to get off early enough to still enjoy my day. The job is a very fast-paced job with minimum free time. The hardest part of the Job is getting to know the warehouse and its locations. I do love weekly pay.

STAY AWAY FROM THEM!!!! bad place to work, Warehouse
Merchandise Handler (Former Employee), Springfield, ORMay 2, 2014
Pros: none at all!!!!
Cons: lack of communication, trust, faith, and logic in new employees.
Well if you get past the interview, they will tell you that they will help get you up to speed and on to making money. After that they will pare you up with a worker that has been there for a few years or more to teach you the ropes, but not tell you how to do the training? (watch or hands on) And in my case after 3 days there I was pulled into a room – more... with a person that wasn't apart of the area I was to be working in to be told that i'm not picking up speed fast enough to do the job on there (over the top) standards.

Put yourself in my place, if you are new to a job do you think that it would take more than 3 days to get to know a warehouse and its products to do the job right and at a good pace? So they fired me 3 days into the training.

Don't end up like I did , you would be better off looking else ware.
A bad company breeds bad employees, and managers. – less

Ok expereince, not best management
Floor Associate (Former Employee), Palatine, IllinoisApril 13, 2014
Provided excellent customer service. Attentive to customer needs. Assembled appliances as needed. Restocked and cleaned store to ensure company image was well presented. Bosses didn't always make the best decisions and were harsh to new employees, even excluding myself. It was my first job, which was fun, but it was far from an enjoyable experience.
