Stressful
Cold Storage Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIJanuary 15, 2019
Majority of co-workers were not friendly. Understandably because of the production system, you had to have a cut-throat attitude to get the production numbers management wanted. Didn't matter how hard you worked, just the numbers you got.
Pros
Free uniforms
Cons
Very unsafe

Very dirty and dangerous
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Manchester, PAJanuary 12, 2019
If you go down any aisle. You'll find over 10 unsafe skids sticking out. From in the racks. They've got raymond high reach trucks and crown high reach trucks. Beat up equipment and alot of damaged racks. Alot of broken pallets under the racks.Alot of trash and damaged freight in racks. Very cold -10 degree or so in freezer. 34°in cooler. Safety gear is provided some is used. Some is new. Union job also. 17.15 an hour is really good to be a forklift operator. You take a test as a temp for the temp service. They test you like 4 more times on paperwork.
At the facility math and matching. Forklift test for raymonds. Safety test. A few others.
Wasn't expecting it. Looking to leave this dirty job now. Any safe forklift job making 15.00 is better than this job. Narrow aisles for 1 person but many other will be in the aisle with you. Very hostile and very unsafe. No 2nd shift supervisors.
Pros
Paid lunch, Great hourly wage, great shifts
Cons
Short breaks, union dues, very cold in freezer.

Warehouse Supervisor 3PL/Kroger DC (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GADecember 24, 2018
You won't believe it until you see it. Somehow the family/team culture has been lost, no one takes ower ship, trust and respect is non-existent. It's just a job now not a career at my plant

Hostile work environment
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Fogelsville, PADecember 18, 2018
The management team does not communicate and information such as employee absences and pay are frequently incorrect or lost. The work environment is a hostile "us versus them" perspective for most people instead of a team based environment for employees and their management team.
Pros
pay

Fun people to work with, cookouts, and paid holidays. No, thourough training, lack of supervision, and initiative by all parties, including managemen.
Administrative Support Clerk (Former Employee) –  Forest Park, GADecember 14, 2018
I was terminated due to an anonymous tip, I still to this day don’t know what is it that I did or said to whoever I did it to or said it to.
I was their top worker for my position.
As soon as I found out they hired a girl who started my same position making more than me who didn’t have a high school diploma, GED, or prior warehouse experience, they suspended me and fired me for my complaint.
It doesn’t matter what the job offers or how good the work culture is if these types of things are occurring.
Pros
Cookouts
Cons
Management, HR are not on your side, they are more so working against you to make sure the company is in a safe standing

Dont waste you time.
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Strasburg, VADecember 10, 2018
This job was horrible. Your just another body for the grinder. They don't care about anything other than the customer. 12 hour days 6 days a week in sub freezing temperatures. I was a supervisor and they used and abused our skill sets. Was nowhere close to worth the money. If you don't want to see your family then go for it because they pay ok if you stay hourly but the salaried associates make less than the people out on the floor if you look at the hours. They rarely hire from within for key spots and the new supervisors are thrown to the wolves without knowing how the job is supposed to be done. Overall it's not worth it if u want to have any life outside of that place.
Pros
Money
Cons
Harsh enviroment, high turnover, mandatory overtime

Did not like how hard the job was on the body.
picker (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXDecember 6, 2018
I had to pull a lot of orders very fast and operate machinery in -20 degrees temperatures, it was a huge strain on the body, although that they did have a very good system for picking orders, the rate at which people were asked to pull at times was a bit ridiculous but I always managed to keep up with the pace, eventually my body started to give in.
Pros
Paid lunch, good pay
Cons
Cold temperatures, always hard on the body
