Long Hours and lack of appreciation
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Rocky Hill, CTApril 5, 2018
There is no work life balance. You have a start time but never know your out time.

It is fast paced and no room for mistakes.

It is a 24/7 hour business including holidays.

Not a great work environment
Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Rocky Hill, CTMarch 13, 2018
The management does not care about staff and do not help when needed. This is a trucking company delivery for BJs and Market Basket. Not highly recommended as a good working environment.

Huge, busy warehouse
Inventory Control Specialist (Former Employee) –  Rocky Hill, CTFebruary 21, 2018

Pros
Two 15 min breaks and 30 min lunch, AMAZING benefits almost anything you can think of
Cons

free coffee and lunch/dinner some times
Checker (Former Employee) –  Rocky Hill, CTFebruary 15, 2018
start off the day by bundling up because it can get to -20 in the building then you need to ware a neon vest and carry a cone on you to put on palest of food you check to prevent getting hit by a forklift or plate jack and even then you need to keep your eyes pealed its a dangers job and the hours you work are all over you have a start time but you never know when your going home you don't leave till work is done one time we stared at 8:15am and didn't leave till 4am the next day that was a harsh day but on days like that they buy everyone dinner and breakfast and some times even pay you double time but not a lot of people stay long some people get hired and work one day and never come back
Pros

As a selector, the compensation is very good. very competitive. But the job is very hard. Days requires about 12 hrs of work, repetitively building pallets with cases that range for 20-100 lbs.

QC Inspector / Shipping Clerk (Current Employee) –  Elkton, MDFebruary 7, 2018
You work really long hours on certain days. They are strict on call outs and lates. You start out on base rate and then better and quicker you are the more you make, (you get paid incentive).
