Tough job that takes a mentally strong person
Operations Manger (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 11, 2018
Like most companies, the Peter Principle is in full effect. Many senior leaders have risen to the positions they are in over the bodies that they have left behind, not because of their talent.

The more you do, the more you are expected to do while those that find a way to "delegate" their entire job load away and play on their phones all day are promoted because of their "exceptional leadership abilities".
Pros
you get a coat when you start working there
Cons
it's your job, your hobby and life if you let it become that

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Clearfield, UTNovember 7, 2018
great work environment great attitude from other employees. i work run a floor sweeper and use a broom on a daily bases cleaning the dock area and inside the cold storage warehouse. would use a motorized forklift and pick up empty pallets and trash and put in their rightful places. most rewarding part of the day was end of the shift knowing the warehouse and production area was clean and ready for the next shift.
Pros
awesome co workers
Cons
lack of motorized equipment

Lift Operator (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn Park, MNOctober 31, 2018
Lost job over Human Resource jerking around with points. Multiple lawyers said I would win if I brought lawsuit. Don't work here unless you are totally desperate and especially if you are LGBTQ, stay away from this toxic workplace!! Most hostile work environment. To your face they tolerate you, but behind your back they work extra hard to eliminate your position.
Pros
Good Pay and Benefits
Cons
Sexual Harrassment Big Time!

Fast paced work environment
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Gadsden, ALOctober 28, 2018
This was a fast paced work environment. The hardest thing about working there was having too much product in the warehouse causing product to get lost, damaged, and slowed production.

Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAOctober 25, 2018
decent pay good benefits, long hours, management could improve.
co workers are great, I learned alot about forklifts and how to fix them that i never knew before. My favorite part of the job was the people i worked around, the hardest part of my job was getting everything done that needed to be done in the time it needed to be done.
