Save Yourself - The High Turnover Rate Isn't Just Because
Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Denver, COSeptember 15, 2018
This company is so bad . Supervisors quit just as much as employees.. The turn over rate for employees is ridiculous.
I worked there for 2 years & 2 people committed suicide (seriously). Everybody hates working there & that brings you down.
There are no advancement opportunities. They do not hire supervisors or managers from withing. There is no working your way up. They only hire supervisors & managers from outside. So you have supervisors & managers that have never done the job, telling you how to do your job.
They pay a cash incentive. Basically the faster you go. The more you make. Yea. But they control the system.
The Union is a joke & you will be stuck in a contract that isn't up until 2024. Only employees have to abide by the contract. The company can break the contract whenever they want with no consequences.
It's a very brutal job on your body & they only give you a 25 minute lunch & one 15 minute break.
Just good advise. Do not even apply here. Other companies pay just as much or more & will not use & abuse you.
Pros
They Pay?
Cons
This place is horrible. And it's run like a prison.

Work-a-holics only
DOCK CLERK (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXSeptember 13, 2018
They will pay you a lot of money, but not really because they pay all that much per hour. You'll be working 60 to 80 hours per week on a regular basis.

safety and consideration are nonexistent/plus people stealing.
HIGHREACH OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  York, PASeptember 13, 2018
at Americold you go through the motions of safety training and learning about goals and company policies. But once you get out on the floor it's a different story. people are inconsiderate, co-workers are for them selves. Safety is out the window,pallets is the isles, product knocked over or misplaced to where you go to look for the product you're to pick and stage, and it's not at the location. A lot of trip hazards. one guy even knocked down a pallet loaded with product over from level E and it wasn't even a recorded or reported. no drug testing no nothing.
Pros
some good people
Cons
not safe

Freezer work was not my thing.
Fork Lift Operator (Former Employee) –  Burley, IDSeptember 12, 2018
It was all freezer work. 12 hour shifts get too cold. It is cutthroat and hard to work as a team, shift wise it is a giant argument of who does what and who does not.

Poor workplace
LTO (Lift Truck Operator) (Current Employee) –  Leesport, PASeptember 7, 2018
Always mandated to work ot. Communication is very poor. No accountability. Damaged racking thru out makes it unsafe. Hard to get equipment most times. This place needs help in getting back to how is used to be. As a last resort would I recommend getting a job here as a LTO, there are better jobs out there.
Pros
Great pay and paid vac
Cons
Accountability, overworked, poor management (not all), hires anyone with no experience

Dysfunctional Work Environment
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Forest Park, GASeptember 5, 2018
I worked as a Cust Srv Rep in the Forest Park Ga location.The Job was pleasant but the work environment was cut throat. They do not have a culture based on work integrity or morals. When you try to resolve issues with Mgmt and HR. They do nothing. They basically have worked with each other so long that do what they want with no regards for what is right or needed in the workplace .As long as the work is being done, mgmt doesnt care how it is being done or how employees disrespect or mistreat others.No on that works there likes the place. The pay is minimal.
Pros
Schedule Flexibility
Cons
Cut Throat And Dyfunctional Work environment

It's ok, but no family life
Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Salem, VASeptember 1, 2018
The scheduling makes it hard to plan anything in your family life. Everything changes each week on what you might be working or might not be working.

Not worth it
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTSeptember 1, 2018
I worked here for 6 years and almost never saw my wife and kids. I started working at 3 am, had a 45 minute drive to work, worked 12+ hours a day, 6 days a week, and had to drive home in rush hour traffic which was another hour and a half or so.
Pros
Big Paychecks because of overtime.
Cons
No Family Time.

Hard Work and Long Hours
Maintenance (Current Employee) –  Modesto, CAAugust 31, 2018
Try to make sure repairs are made. Micro Management is high here. Everyone thinks they can do your job better but can barely do their own job. Best part is... you will never be left without anything to do. Not to mention, if you do something spectacular, the GM will tell everyone it was his idea even though he fought you on the idea at first. Or, shoot your ideas down and make you feel stupid for bringing it up only to implement the idea later as his own.
Pros
Kept busy
Cons
Pay is way too low for what I do and the medical is $900 a month.

Hardest part of the job
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Amarillo, TXAugust 28, 2018
The hardest part of my job at Americold was the management. Most of the supervisors were very easy to work for but one individual seemed to have it out for me. Always having to go above and beyond when working with him

Fast pace - efficiency driven work environment
Associate (Former Employee) –  Manchester, PAAugust 27, 2018
There is good money to be made as long as you have a sense of urgency and are motivated.
A few facilities are tainted with union involvement. If you find yourself employed within one of these union facilities then you will need to be able to tolerate the ignorance and arrogance of some of your senior coworkers. Your union dues will be used to protect those who perform poorly... when they do show up for work.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Union

The definition of bad management
Lift Truck Operator (Former Employee) –  Rochelle, ILAugust 22, 2018
Exactly what the title of review states. Complete disregard for employees safety or concerns. Last minute mandates to work on your days off. Incompetence at every level. Why OSHA has not shut this place down is probably because money changed hands. If you enjoy being treated like a piece of garbage, this is the place for you.
Pros
None
Cons
All that can possibly apply.

This company lacks logic in their decision making, they work their employees to death with no compassion, the amount of politics between the union and company is unbearable.

Great pay
Cons
Treats the employees like they’re numbers and nothing else.
