Forklift Operator/Warehouse (Former Employee) – Tennessee – January 16, 2017
It was easy just show up to work everyday and check your folklift out an get to work. We must have at least 150,000 pounds of product moved an put away. That would have been 2 truck trailers on the dock.
Field Engineer III (Former Employee) – Punxsutawney, PA – December 20, 2016
Must be able to take the good with the bad, there are many good days on location and many days where issues seem to plague site. The ups and downs of the industry cause you to question whether you will still have a job in another 5 years. Overall the crew is what makes the job,
Love the work itself,and the coworkers in the field. However management team is not the greatest. Has the " I don't care what you have to do to get it done( safe or unsafe) just get it done" attitude. You can learn a good amount from the guys in the field who are usually extremely helpful. One perk of the job is no one looks over your shoulder and get to go into buildings most people will never get to go into. For the most part hours are there but again, over look many things and want you to work in unsafe conditions.
Get paid to drive, See many cool buildings, Great coworkers (as far as non-office employees go) get to work outside 50% of the time.
No communication, bad planning, ask you to do things that are unsafe ex: stand on top of 12' ladder to reach 20' warehouse rafters.
Led to believe that the route was three city's, but was actually,including more city's outside of areas agreed to than I care for.sleep pattern trashed from loads to close back to with little travel time in peeks hours in major city's, constant battle with appointment times .
Good trucks, and great experince for my fisrt company right out of truck school

Architect (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 13, 2016
I worked here for almost a decade, through their growth spurts, refocusing efforts and corporate relocation; they have always provided good pay and great benifits but required hard work and absolute dedication to their mission statement to succeed. If you adapt to their ethos and realize each organizational unit is treated as an emerging startup each year that competes and wins or goes back to the drawing board, you'll soon realize that you have to stay on your "A" game and well integrated to advance into management and/or senior management.
This is not a company for slackers, they work their employees as hard as a flight operations group must to stay ahead of competitors. They also treat their employees like family and friends after the mission is completed, this involves employee outings and events that are pretty amazing for a growing company.
Industry exposure, employee training, knowledge transfer and travel
24/7 workplace that requires after hours work and additional studies to stay sharp
A company who cares more about making money then making sure it's employees are in good hands. Employees are out in the field no matter the climate, making sure everything is safe, without any help, and left without protection.
Enjoyed working for different clientele. Did not like when I had to be transferred or the contract had expired. -Learned how to handle different types of customers and personalities. At times it was challenging due to the lack of support from the office or supervisory staff.
Opportunities to learn new skills and improve performance, but little or no chance of advancement and no health plan or benefits. Casual style of management with most priorities existed with only sales department. Growing company with many changes to job description on a regular basis. Friendly environment.
WORKER (Former Employee) – Woodinville, WA – June 22, 2016
The residents are really nice, and typically your coworkers are easy to work with. The management is very good at throwing their employees under the bus, they don't take responsibility for anything, they spend too much money on stupid unwanted things and not enough money on important things. They spend the majority of their time delegating their responsibilities to others, micromanaging your job, and treating you like you're nothing. I've done twice the work I was hired for at the same low wage, I'm often expected to work extra hours (despite living 35 mins away) so that the managers who live not even 10 mins away can go home early. They're not afraid to brag about how much money they make. Me and others have tried to call them out on it, but they always avoid confrontation and will often claim that's what we were hired to do. If you're looking to apply here, just be aware of these issues, and that we are always hiring, because people quit a lot.
it is a tobacco company. The job is ok but have some space to improve. first you will be put into the quality control lab which is a good place to start with. you can gain a lot of knowledge about the tobacco process from there.
