Dirty, dangerous and stressful
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Cheshire, CT – December 20, 2018
Don't expect to be able to come in every day and just do your job. You won't have consistent hours and every day is a struggle for the equipment and space you need to do your job. You;ll spend hours each day cleaning up after people or doing things that aren't part of your job, which you aren't paid for, just to be allowed to work. It's not a surprise that fights happen pretty regularly, though they do at least come down hard on people who get violent, so long as they're just associates.
They don't follow their isle courtesy rules or other safety rules, so every month there will be a dozen or so incidences, most of which get ignored. For example; one of my coworkers had a trailer pulled out while he was driving into it, he was fortunately not injured; the company's response was to have us give signs to the drivers asking them to obey the warning lights, that policy lasted like two weeks.
It's also the the dirtiest warehouse i've ever been in. For a place that handles food you'd expect it to be cleaner but you still see food on the floor every day and rats and mice are common esp on weekend night shifts when it's less busy.
good benefits and payrate
work unpaid, crazy hours, hostile workplace, dirty
