very intense work environment. Very fast paced as it is required to fill the demand for ice in the summer. Must be willing to work overtime especially during the summer.

Fun company to work for,low paying wages
Distribution Manager (Former Employee) –  Utica, NYAugust 13, 2018
This company promotes itself within as being low overhead,high profit.In other words,you will have employment when needed and be paid a lower than average wage for the area that you work and reside in.The majority of the employees are seasonal.Very few full time are retained year round.
Pros
a fun job that promotes customer relations and the satisfaction of customer service.
Cons
low wages, little room for advancement.

Not Good
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Dubuque, IAAugust 1, 2018
You'd go from working a 3 hour day to 13 cause the management was terrible. The whole factory was held together with duct tape and scrap. They don't discriminate against criminals (which isn't always bad) but because of them taking any and all employees it was rather common for coworkers to smoke meth out back and come in completely drunk.
Pros
Minimal supervision
Cons
To many to count

Terrible Job and Management
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Hicksville, NYJuly 26, 2018
I would not recommend anybody working here unless you want to fall and break your neck they have no set schedule for when you leave they say they hiring for forklift drivers but have only 3 forklifts and 6 forklift drivers. There is ice everywhere so it is extremely a big safety hazard the only thing good is the pay and hours i guess but would not recommend this job to my worst enemy the warehouse is a complete mess one of the worst jobs i ever worked at in my life they only give there forklift drivers 13.50 by the way
Pros
None
Cons
Two breaks for a 12 hour shift, poor manangement and not alot of work to do

Do not fall for their tricks.
Driver (Current Employee) –  University Park, ILJuly 18, 2018
You will be worked to death every day 12-14 hours. 2 days off a week seems good until you are working 14 hour days every other day. Wanna take a vacation? Yeah good luck getting that approved. Need a day off for an emergency? You better hope someone has you covered which is rare considering they are understaffed. You will pay for that day off. No room for advancement. Even if they say they are considering it don’t believe it until you see it. They will wine and dine you when you are upset just so you won’t leave, then when things calm down it goes back to the same nonsense. Your well being is not worth throwing away over a bag of ice
Pros
Sometimes you have a good day.
Cons
Almost everything about this company. Basically Legalized slavery

This job is NOT for everyone. The working conditions are very tough. You are working in 18 degree weather in the trucks to unload ICE. Very Fast paced job

Pay sucked
Helper (Former Employee) –  Saint Cloud, MNJune 13, 2018
Hard labor. For only $9.75 it was bad. You go to work and constantly lifting or throwing ice. Unless your on the road. But at the end of the day. You go home and feel dead
Pros
The open road
Cons
The pay was not worth it at all

Don't do it
Driver (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IAJune 8, 2018
I'll sum it up nepotism!! The drivers are the heart and soul of that company. The regional manager doesn't care about the employees he will hire anybody he wants that arent qualified pay them more money then drivers that have been there over 10 years they have no problem spending money on meetings fancy dinners . And they love the pat them selves on the back. Whomever hired him needs to be fired. Corporate needs to seriously clean house of all the office people the drivers make them look good and they should be the ones who get promoted to run the business not some dude who doesn't have a clue
Pros
None
Cons
Nepotism

Customer service never improves
Key Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Montclair, NJMay 29, 2018
Although I did refine my computer skills, the company itself needs to do a better job with customer service.
Every year the KAM became the complaint depot for the summer months.
Sales Mgmt. always began the seasonal hiring to late, all to save a few bucks, but didn't spare any expensed when it cam to travel, meetings and lunches at the corporate office.
Health benefits were awful.
Pros
Refined computer skills
Cons
Didn't see an effort to improve customer service, just a bunch of lip service.

Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Capitola, CAMay 21, 2018
Great job. Lots of work in summer and slower in the winter. They do provide you with other jobs and projects to ensure you can still work full time. Or its a good time to use vacatiobs days for long weekends
Pros
Great crew, and good money for the area
Cons
Lots of work in summer.

Decent job for the summer with decent pay
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Ames, IAMay 21, 2018
I worked here for about a week before I was offered a higher paying position with a different company and the manager at Arctic Glacier was very unprofessional with his response. I was given absolutely no training besides a few PowerPoint slides and videos. Everything was learn as you work/go. Work environment is simple to learn and is constant movement. Coworkers are easy to get along with and help out new employees very well. Nothing was too taxing if you don’t mind physical labor, but working and cleaning the ice maker room was painful as the low concentrations of ammonia burned my eyes, throat and nose. Followed by intense allergies after clocking out. New employees will have to get used to that as it’s a daily routine to clean that room. It’s also something you’re not told from the start. Overall, decent place to work for some extra cash in the summer, but would NOT recommended because the management was very unprofessional.
Pros
Set schedule of work hours
Cons
No actual job training, ammonia room burns eyes, nose and throat

Ok job for kids in the summer. management and everything else is pretty disappointing
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Belding, MIMay 17, 2018
You become friends with the other drivers and helpers. 0 punishment. poor management. company doesn't care about you. really only a decent job for high school or college kids during the summer. Restricted to 40 hours during the winter. expect 60-80 hour weeks in the summer.
Pros
Good sumer job for high schoolers and college kids
Cons
Management sucks. corporate doesn't care about you.

Labor and Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  West Des Moines, IAMay 10, 2018
One of the worst companies I have ever worked for. Force you to work six days a week, work you no less then 12 hours a day sometimes try to make you go over your DOT allowed driving time. Always have trouble with the ice boxes at the stores. Management does not care about the employees what so ever. 70-80 hr work week and the pay is horrible they expect you to work to death to makeup for the pour pay. Old trucks always breaking down and having problems don’t waste your time

Great place to work with lots of opertunity
production (Current Employee) –  Kansas CityMarch 28, 2018
Arctic Glacier is a great place to work with lots of opportunity for growth. The job is fast paced and is a great way to stay in shape while getting paid. It is a cold environment but it is better than working in the heat, especially in the summer. The pay is fair and the benefits are good. The management team is easy to work for and are not afraid to get their hands dirty. Overall, I would recommend this company over other production facilities I have worked at. The job is pretty straight forward. When you show up to work you get started right away. You are either stacking bags of ice on pallets or driving a pallet jack. There is opportunity to excel if you have a little mechanical aptitude. I would say that the hardest part of the job is that it is physically demanding.
Pros
good pay, good benifits, physicaly active, climate controled, good people, team centered, 2 days off a week, and no drama
Cons
your days off are not always on the weekend
