Outdated computer system, Poor management, communication
Peasant (Former Employee) –  Orange, CTDecember 21, 2017
Computer system is outdated and not good for the volume that needs to be handled day to day.

Management is deaf, dumb and blind to its workers. Does not care about opinions or ideas that would improve day to day tasks.
This includes not only warehouse workers but office staff.
They may agree with your idea but laugh behind your back. Secretive.
There is no advancement. The more you do the less your compensated. The less you do the more you are recognized.
Favoritism.

Not much time for anyone to learn anything new. You're put into a position and there you stay. No advancements.

They speak about a TEAM Culture but that's about it. Nothing about integrity, family, customers etc.
Pros
401K match
Cons
Dirty facilities, outdated computer system

Driver Class B/Utility Personnel (Current Employee) –  Orange, CTApril 11, 2017
The part that I enjoy the most about Colony is that when I show interest in more hours; they for the most part give them to me. They are very family oriented.

If you are axed, they probably burn your reviews as well.
Driver/Warehouse (Former Employee) –  Orange, CTOctober 13, 2015
Work presented a couple of issues. The management did not want to hear about anything, nor would they consider a thought, that they did not think of. That is a shame because some things needed changing. Their really is no advancement or being able to transfer into another department if you have created any ill will. Workers were constantly wishing they were home as they just punched in. If the owner knew this was true, there would be some changes; not of the workers but of the supervisors.
Pros
The company does provide free food on holidays. There seem to be a lot of holidays.
Cons
You do not get school related days off. Only the bare minmum.
