It was a good place to work but i can't deal with the cold.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Bethlehem, PAJuly 29, 2015
You never knew going into each day what your work assignment would be, etc.; picking, replenish, unload inbounds. The management was a good group of supervisors who would work with people and respect everyone as the same was done for them. The hardest part of the job was working on Sundays and dealing with 34 degree temperatures.

Good place to be with great co workers
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Wilmington, ILJuly 26, 2015
A typical day at work consists of being on feet for 10 hours per day in an environment that ranges between 30 to -10 degrees. Co workers are hard working and they all look out for each other as well as make sure that their everyday duties are completed. Management I think could be worked on a little bit more- inexperienced management skills have driven many employees to question authority and decisions made. The overall work and daily tasks are very easy and with out a doubt perfectly able to complete without fail.
Pros
Management provides PPE
Cons
Management lacks communication and proper procedural skills

Quality Assurance (Current Employee) –  IllinoisMarch 11, 2015
Long hours have been put into working for this Company. The Company trains you in various aspects of the job and if certifications are required sends you to attend classes to get the required certifications. Benefits are great, Insurance, 401K, and a Pension Plan. The management team could be more fair, consistent, and professional. More responsibility & job duties are given to individuals that are either knowledgeable or capable of completing the task, regardless of the amount of duties already required to complete.

Good workplace, good benefits and pay.
Forklift Driver (Current Employee) –  Minooka, ILMarch 4, 2015
A typical work day involves picking products in freezers, putting them onto pallets, wrapping those pallets, and staging them on the dock. USCS is a great workplace with good benefits and pay. It is a very cold work environment which is harsh on the body.
Pros
pay, benefits, management
Cons
cold, taxing on the body, 2nd shift hours

A very misleading introduction to this company!
csr (Former Employee) –  Wilmington ilFebruary 17, 2015
Thought the company valued their employees, but I found that to be untrue. There isn't enough diversity in this company. Honestly, they need the EEOC in there right away. Professionalism is something that is only displayed when a customer visits. The turnover rate alone shows how much employees aren't valued. If you are looking to work for a fair company this isn't it. If your not a "specific" color or a towny, you lose..
Pros
overtime paid for anytime worked after 8hrs .
Cons
low pay, unprofessional managers and no diversity

Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Current Employee) –  Quakertown PaDecember 9, 2014
I enjoy working for United States Cold Storage. They have excellent benefits that meet my needs. They are encouraging and a happy group of people to work with in general and really support their employees. This company has a diverse group of people that travel to and from the facility to help with starting up the company and to fix any issues related to making business more efficient.

long unpredictable hours
