It looks good.
Pros: healthcare, 401k, and pension
Cons: poor managers, not enough manpower, punishment for using sick time
We started work at 5:00am and finished around 3-4:00pm! We worked at a fast pace which made our center one of the top leaders in production (manpower verses product handling). We stocked product for nighttime warehouse selectors. We stored all inbound freight into warehouse racking using laser scanners for location. We swept and picked up trash over large warehouse areas. The quotas were set at a very high rate which created unsafe working conditions. The management was always concerned with the bottom dollar and disciplinary action whenever someone got injured or something got damaged or inventory was inaccurate. Management always expected quality to maintain at high levels even though they constantly cut manpower and pay! There was not a very good incentive system in place! The bonus system was based on safety but any accident of any kind between the transportation department or warehouse department severely crippled any bonus for each individual employee. The management team did not have people skills and treated employees as a number and much less as a person. They weren't interested in ideas or solutions to problems until the almighty bottom dollar went belly up! This could have been prevented if only more time, care, and money was invested in the employee! It was no surprise to we, the employees, that our center cut its own throat and closed its doors for good in 2014. Companies should be concerned about their bottom dollar but if they really care about it there should always be a strong commitment to the company's first customer and that is its own employees! Otherwise, quality, production, and business go down the drain! Most co-workers were great to work with! The hardest part of the job was putting up with bad managers who were disrespectful to all of us! The most enjoyable part of the job was the relationships developed with employees in all the different departments!
