The break room smelled like weed. Everybody who was being interviewed had worked there previously. It was like a high school reunion. I didn't even have a chance. I had years of warehouse experience. If you want to feel uncomfortable for 12 hours this is the perfect place for you.

DC General Manager/Regional Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Windsor, CT – February 19, 2019
Overall great experience and great team. Always trying new things but too many things and meetings make it very hard to be on the floor without adding alot of hours. One negative is the removal of HR interaction in coaching and accountability.
The most enjoyable part of working at C&S was you could always stay in shape. It's a high physical demanding job. The hardest part was getting use to the -15 degree cold. The management team was laid back and really didn't walk the warehouse to check on things.
Item Selector (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – February 15, 2019
Nice looking girls wearing spandex everywhere. Promises from ads and managers that i would make soo much money. Lots of favoritism and nepotism, sexism. I hated being held hostage,you dont have a set time to go home. You work long days Saturday and Monday and 4-5 on your next two days. You are supposed to get incentive pay. Whenever I had a good day I would get sent to a different mod to get my numbers dragged back down.
As a recent employee of C&S I can assure that they do play favorites. While some employees are given multiple chances to mess up. They have the ones that they target yes. Very poor management in PDC. Everything seems to get blamed on the selectors and lift drivers when it all starts within the office. If you want to run the check up it's ok but I strongly recommend that you have an exit plan. Careful of Chabrent. He really plays favorites.
Fast paced and stressful, constant fast, and heavy lifting, always moving.
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – February 11, 2019
Overall not too bad as far as the job itself; however my manager, and many other managers favored people under their supervision who were related to them, or friends. This along with some racial bias from certain members of management made work sometimes difficult.
All time based so youre basically your own boss.
Understaffed constantly, poor management, constantly a mess of go ask the next guy.

Its great if you're looking to not have a family or a life. They make you work mandatory over time. I've seen managers block the entrance so associates won't leave the building to finish the work and constantly threatened to fire you if you do not make production. When you are first hired they tell you 10 hours a day and 3 days off and 4 days on but that you have to work overtime. Which means you sometimes stay 12 or 14 hours if there is a lot of work, even if you start at 7am plus that mandatory day which adds up to 60 hours+. If you use your PTO before the 1 year you are s.o.l. Lunch is 30 mins and you get two 15 min breaks. As a selector each product you pick adds up to your paycheck but they constantly change the rules so you only make an extra $10 or 20 a week. There are trainers who watch how many items you pick but are constantly up your butt checking how fast or slow you are.
Very productive work place and fun with great coworkers at C&S Wholesale Grocery
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Westfield, MA – January 31, 2019
A typical workday at C&S......make sure I am dressed accordingly for cold temperatures, preview my work equipment to make sure they are in good, safe, working order. I begin my day selecting my order. As i select my order i have to configure how to securely place the product. I then shrink wrap the product to place it by the trailor door where it awaits to be loaded. The supervisors standby if there are any questions or concerns. I enjoyed being employed with C&S because i felt safe and found my co workers to be very kind and helpful.
If you need a job that will pay the bills then this is a ok job to take. but it comes with cost. Definitely favoritism and politics within the workforce. Everyone is not treated fairly. They say you can work as many hrs as you want but really they try and stop you short of 40 hrs. So even though your hourly wage is 15-20 per hr depending on performance and shift you are on, the majority of weeks you will get 35 hrs or less.
Cross dock (Former Employee) – Mauldin, SC – January 30, 2019
Working here was a great job opportunity. It’s a fun environment if you’re not too big on getting cold. Multiple warehouses with each one having different jobs. I was in the freezer so it was cold most of the time. But overall would recommend this job to anyone.
Team Selector Miami FL (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – January 25, 2019
Unfair, Stressful, Hours are extensively long every day. can leave until the work is finish. even after you have done your 8 hours. have to stay behind and help team members. even after you've completed your work.
Clerk (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – January 25, 2019
Would love to go back to work there and come back to work there. I loved my job but I had to leave for health issues at that time. The job was a learning experience over the years I've been working with them. The company takes good care of their worker.
