An okay place to work if you are a temp
Warehouse Associate, Greensboro, NC - February 23, 2015
A typical day begins at 7am, but you NEVER know when you will be going home. During the slow season (November-March) you may go home as early as 9am, but then you may stay till 4 or 5pm. When you load trucks, you load by yourself. You are required to unload at the rate of 18-20 pieces per hour, and load at the rate of 28-30 pieces per hour. The warehouse supervisor is great and fun to work with. Upper management however, that is a different story. They are very disorganized. UCC has a very low morale when it comes to how the employees feel about working there. UUC does offer 12 paid holidays, including your birthday. However, when you receive a paid holiday, you can almost always plan on working the following Saturday to make up for the day that they let you have off, with the exception of your birthday. In addition, if you should get hurt while working there, you will be required to sign a paper stating that, should you get hurt again, you will be terminated from employment. The hardest part of the job is not knowing when you will be done for the day. I have had some days where I started at 7am and didn't leave to go home until 7:30pm. The most enjoyable part of the job, to me, was loading the outbound trucks. I like the challenge. There is a big difference between how the office staff is treated, as to how the warehouse employees are treated. For example, the office holds parties whenever someone in the office has a birthday. The same is not done for warehouse employees. Therefore, warehouse associates took it upon themselves to have a dinner party, once a month, for whoever had a birthday in that month. I do have to say, I have over 20 years in the Distribution, Warehousing, and Transportation fields, and UCC Distribution has got to be the most unorganized, ungrateful, and crooked place that I have ever worked.
