Awful Management, Overworked, Under Appreciated
Roof Top Loader + Warehouse (Former Employee), Wayne, MIDecember 16, 2014
Pros: money, healthcare
Cons: long days, employee turnover, no lunch
Inside Management vs Outside Drivers/Warehouse. If you like working in a divided company who blames each other for mistakes and errors Wimsatt is the company for you. They lure you in with promises of getting your CDL, advancement with the company, and roof top bonus etc but it is all a scam. They will work you to the bone all summer long 60-70hrs/week(I was forced to work every Saturday for 30+weeks) and then fire you right before they have to pay out bonuses. Don't count on breaks or lunches! They will just deduct 30mins of pay every day you work over 7 hours (which is every day) whether you take a lunch or not.

What kind of reputable company makes employees pay for mis-deliveries or shipping errors? It doesn't end their, you can also expect to get written up for it.

This company is beyond messed up. I am so ashamed to have worked here I list a gap of work history rather than adding it to my resume'.

Very hard company to work for
Sales (Former Employee), MichiganJune 18, 2013
Pros: none that out way the cons
Cons: stress, unrealistic time lines, too much paperwork
Wimsatt Traverse City has gone through 6 territory managers in the last 5 years. Management makes life difficult. Their policies make it hard on the customers. This is not a place to count on for a career.

This job is based on overtime and overtime only. If you don't get over time you don't get a good pay.
Driver & Warehouse Personnel (Former Employee), Sterling Heights, MIJune 2, 2013
Pros: overtime pay
Cons: physical labor doesn't add up to pay, dispatcher isn't very good, corperate management isn't good
Job security is minimum with very little work/life balance. Culture is low with little values. Great management. This is a very hard working job that doesn't pay for the physical work you put in.
