Good group of people
Employee (Current Employee) –  Arlington, TXApril 20, 2018
Great place to work. Like the people who are there and management is great to work for. Teamwork is mentioned alot and safety is a talked about also, sometimes too much.
Sometimes it is very busy , but like working with customers. They do a pretty good job in hiring but occasionally one slips through.
Ok medical and 401k. Pay is decent. Great hours. Sometime OT is needed but not often.
Pros
Good people to work with and good hours
Cons
Could pay better

Ran poorly. Had been thru 3 managers in last 2 years. Treated like a forklift while the other driver couldn’t do his job. Would advise against them
Driver/Warehouse (Former Employee) –  Saint George, UTMarch 19, 2018
Over worked. Under staffed. Management was poorly ran. Always had to try to make excuses for the management not doing. What he told customers was going to be done. One of worst run companies I have worked for. System from the 80’s. Not very efficient. Doubled and tripled monthly goals with no raise and not having the staff to do it. Over worked under paid
Pros
None
Cons
A lot of different issues.

Pallet jack
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Kinston, NCMarch 11, 2018
Moving window parts, relocating boxes and equipment taking parts to their correct line.
Management was very lax they never really questioned what you did as long as everything was done for the day.
Hardest part of the job was they never trained on the forklift so we had to hand stack boxes

Temporary job, no room for growth
Driver/Warehouse (Current Employee) –  Arlington, TXMarch 4, 2018
This is a company that refuses to adapt to modern ideas of thinking and technology who's sole mantra is "if it isn't broke, don't fix it." There is absolutely no room for career growth and despite doubling/tripling company profits, management scoffs at the idea of giving their employees raises. Throughout your tenure when working at this place you will be introduced to a policy in which they treat like the 10 commandments only to discover that that same policy bends and folds depending on who/what they feel like applying it too. Training for your job and teaching about product knowledge is little to nonexistent, and oftentimes I'm not sure that legal business practices are even being upheld. Upper management oftentimes will mock their customer base as being "the bottom of the barrel of society" while seemingly having no problem doing business with them despite employees voicing concerns of their safety when presented with numerous racist/homophobic threats. Work for this company for no longer than 6 months and use it as a transitional type of job and you will be ok but don't rely on it as your only source of income. You will always be understaffed and ill-equipped with the tools necessary to complete your job and will be met with a shoulder shrug should you decide to seek help from management.
Pros
decent work hours, major holidays off
Cons
no advancement opportunities or raises.

Pretty straight foward
Glass Cutter (Former Employee) –  Kinston, NCJanuary 15, 2018
The place is like any other warehouse job, quick passed and just no time for errors. If machine broke down the whole line would be sent home and not even relocated to another site. Just not a good place.

Driver (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOSeptember 8, 2017
no leadership, if you want to keep people, you have to try to train them no matter what they do. people dont want jobs if management doesn't put any effort in training.

No support - no work life balance
Install Manager (Former Employee) –  FloridaMarch 14, 2017
Install Managers have NO support. The Install Sales VP in Ohio is VERY UNSUPPORTIVE. He has the "Own It" mentality. In other words - "don't bother me". You are basically on an island all by yourself. You are always understaffed and overworked.
.
The excuse is that you have to produce to get a team. Once you produce they ask for more production and you get no one.

I guarantee that when you inquire on this job you'll hear that you will either be all ALONE or have a management trainee on a rotation.
Pros
very few
Cons
Many

Non-stop Environment
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  New Castle, DEJanuary 31, 2017
Dealt with very busy contractors all day, everyday. A typical work day was to receive contractor necessary materials, and producr the best pricing for their particular job.

In addition, worked with Contracted Service Sales as well as credited accounts. I learned operation mamagement and excellent customer service.

The culture on the road was fun as there were many projects to keep a rep busy. The hardest part of the job was that the job was very limited to advancement.
Pros
Simple system to learn and thrive
Cons
No bonuses, raises, or new positions open.
