Transportation Coordinator/Shipping and Receiving (Current Employee) – Tulare, CA – January 19, 2017
US cold is a good place to work and the people that work there are great. There are some perks to working there including the insurance and work environment. Not for lazy people. Lots of work and usually have opportunities to get overtime. Sometimes when we exceed expectations the company brings us free lunch which is appreciated. Around Thanksgiving and Christmas we are given bonuses. The bonuses are the same for all employees so it's not based on your pay grade.
Christmas bonus, great coworkers
Pay, Can not get promoted unless you're related to a supervisor
Pay and compensation is fairly good for job requirements but not good for people who need free time.
Forklift operator/warehouse worker (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – January 21, 2017
We are a union plant in Omaha NE. We are paid better than other non union plants but the drawbacks being we only have one shift. So starting at 7 a.m. and working until the work is done. Never worked less than a 9 hr day and often work 10 to 13 hrs plus 8 or 9 hours on Saturdays and/or Sundays. So having free time is very difficult but the compensation/overtime is pretty good for what the job requires. Not really any opportunities for advancement.
Long hours, little advancement opportunities, customer relations
Warehouseman/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Wilmington, IL – October 17, 2016
The pay is competitive, and the health benefits are great. That is the only thing that keeps employees there so long. Their turnover rate is outrageous, and upper management is a complete disaster. Talking with veterans of the company say it's been run this way since the place opened.
Great resume builder, but don't get too comfortable. If they want to push you out, they'll find any reason to regardless of production you pump out.
There's always two sides of the story, but from an employee perspective, this place can prove to be quite bogus.
Plenty of OT, simple job assignments
Plenty of OT, fast paced protuctivity rate, not much career advancement within the facility itself.

General Manager (Former Employee) – Covington, TN – September 11, 2016
USCS had fantastic benefits and a good culture if you can get in the right building and customer base. Advancement efforts are being made for younger workers and will have upward mobility in coming years.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Minooka, IL – July 15, 2016
Worst place I've ever worked in my life, good money but horrible management. Never a set schedule. They lost their biggest supplier now are cutting back on hours. Management will harass you constantly if they do not like you.. I would never recommend this job to anyone unless your a hillbilly with no other option. Kevin Sears the head of the company is a straight A.Good luck on your journey and if you're black, good luck
High reach operator (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – July 12, 2016
Great employees to work with. Most supervisor's are great to work with. Higher management is horrible. Treat employees like slaves. You need to ask permission to use the bathroom. They like to write you up for any reason. They make up rules every day. Management is so unprofessional. And if they don't like you. They will harass you until you can't take it anymore. If you want to feel like a nobody go work for United States cold storage in Bethlehem
Warehouseman (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 5, 2016
Good working company,check-in drivers, assigning correct door to work unloading and loading, assigning work to employees, manage employees to get the work done on time, answering customer calls, scheduling appt.. What I have learned from this company is to always stay up to date at work, with software and supplies needed to get the work done on time. Co- workers are always there to back up each other with any circumstances that can happened.
Forklift operations and warehouseman (Former Employee) – Wilmington, IL – May 31, 2016
The company has a lack of job security. This company has an LMS system that constantly monitors productivity in which makes it difficult for employees to adhere to and restricts safety regulations while trying to move forklifts through areas in which are congested with workers. Their data system is outdated and crashes constantly making the tasks of the daily job difficult to complete
Lift Operator (Former Employee) – Covington, KY – May 28, 2016
Cold long days management weren't friendly people to work with but my coworkers were all fun guys to work with and the hardest part of the job was riding around in the freezer stocking the freezer and u had to stay in the freezer at least one hour and I enjoyed getting off just so I could take those cold freezer suits off
