Fast Pace and a good work environment
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Kenosha, WISeptember 18, 2018
The capstone/awg warehouse was a good experience for me because it allowed me to learn the basic functions of warehousing. It is a fast paced work environment and also a dangerous one. I learned how to operate numerous warehouse vehicles and machinery.

Fright Handler
Freight Handler (Former Employee) –  West Sacramento, CASeptember 16, 2018
Freight handlers move freight, stock and other materials and often perform other unskilled labor. Freight handlers may attach identifying labels or mark them with information. They must be able to interpret instruction in a verbal or written manner. They also have to record numbers of units handled. They work with tools, such as dollies, forklifts, hand trucks, jacks, pallet trucks or wrapping machinery.

They lead you in with "Production pay" but that's just a way for them to get you too work harder for little to no raise at all.
Unloader/Lumper (Current Employee) –  Greenwood, INSeptember 10, 2018
Plenty of hours. but don't expect to be getting paid top dollar here. They pay you based on each truck that you break down but the truth is, the trucks hardly pay well enough to pay for the base rate pay of 12$/ hour.

This company is going through major changes
Auditor (Current Employee) –  Bluffton, INAugust 27, 2018
The company is going through a major overhaul of upper management right now. They are willing to work with your schedule to help accommodate families needs. But they dont like to have to do that.
Pros
Weekly paychecks
Cons
They make you feel as though you are just a number and not valued

Productive and laborious workplace
Gap Filler (Former Employee) –  Winchester, VAAugust 25, 2018
My experience working for this company was relatively good. It was my first job out of high school and it paid well. My supervisors and manager were kind and instructive. While they did enforce the rules well they also made a point to care about your personal well-being and safety. A typical day consisted of frequent radio communication and cooperation with your fellow Home Depot employees. Working together you were expected to successfully load several trucks with pallets and various products to meet the specified weight requirements.

The most important thing to remember at this job is to never stop moving. Your pay relies on your production. This point, in particular, was probably the hardest part of this job. Ninety percent of the time you are unloading a cart into one of your assigned trailers. The other ten percent is comprised of radioing pallet loaders and communicating with cart builders in an attempt to keep your designated area flowing smoothly. Thus, the more carts you unload into your trailers, the higher your production rate will be at days end.

The most enjoyable part of this job was probably their system of instant gratification. At the end of each day, you found out your production percentage. Some days my percentage was low and others, I surpassed even the most seasoned of employees.

Overall, I am grateful to have worked in a warehouse setting. I learned much about myself including how I perform under pressure in a cut-throat environment.

A fair warning: This job is extremely laborious. A typical day of work consists of excessive bending of the
  more... knees, arms, and torso. You are on your feet 90% of the workday. Also, the temperature within the warehouse and within the trailers will match, and in some cases exceed, the temperatures outside. So, it is imperative that you keep yourself hydrated throughout the workday.  less

Dead End Workplace; Stressful Environment
Unloader/Picker (Former Employee) –  Locust Grove, GAAugust 22, 2018
In my opinion the labor is not fairly compensated to the extent that it should be, and also when work dried up at the warehouse I was told not to return for months because a temp agency had taken over the work that was there.

Worst place to work by far, Mcdonalds would be better and pay more too.
Lumper/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNAugust 21, 2018
They do not pay an hourly wage, they pay per truck you unload and you could be sitting and waiting for an hour or more sometimes. This equates to less than half of minimum wage at times. They wont tell you this at all though until you look at your check. There is a possibility to make more money but they give the good trucks to all their favorites making it impossible.
Pros
Absolutly nothing, Stay away!!
Cons
Just walking in the door. They all lie right to your face.

Can’t even
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Tracy, CAAugust 19, 2018
They expect so much from you within the first 2 weeks. If you aren’t able to keep your rate up they’ll keep putting you there til you understand how. They finally moved me to an area I’m good at until the put me on suspension for the other part of the job I wasn’t good at.

Unloader/Sorter (Current Employee) –  Marion, INAugust 19, 2018
You never have the right tools to perform the work, you never know when you're getting off to end your day, you don't make hourly pay you make percentage rate, your paid for the trailer, so if you're not unloading your standing around not making money, and your not allowed to leave until they tell you to leave.
