Good benefits, but thats where it stops
Packer (Former Employee) – Waukegan, IL – June 20, 2016
Lets start with the first thing, if you ever think you are going to be sick do not work here. You will be scolded for calling in sick, and will be blamed for everyone working overtime for the day you called in.
Management is another joke, they look down on you like you are a 2 year old. Give you an attitude when you are trying to learn the job. Micromanaged by 6-7 different leads and managers. Half the time they are no where to be found, or won't give you the time of day.
Typical day consisted of a team meeting, stretches, then straight to work til lunch at 1, get back at 2 then pack until done. No breaks at all for 5-7 hours after lunch. The hours seem good to start with, until you realize that there is no time to get errands done during the week. 10:30-7 or later, eats up the whole day.
Also, if you have any dreams of doing more then packing boxes, forget about it, there were so many new packers the wait time to get to the next position was unreal, and that is if you are even considered in the first place.
It took me 4 years of applying to this company to get hired. I wish I would of stopped knowing what I do now. Save your time and go somewhere else and be happy with life. I spent everyday going in asking myself if I was going to be fired, job security is non existent.
hour lunch, great benefits
management, work/life balance
