Sink or swim type of business with vertualy no training.
Manufacturing Production Team Member (Current Employee) – Beatrice, NE – March 18, 2018
There is no structure in the ability of building teams per shift and communication from crew to crew in issues, whats live run and or anything pertaining to maintenance of equipment. No human resource, safety has no since of what the real issues are that the workers face everyday always shooting from the hip and using videos for training purposes with lack of really understanding that the true safety issue out on the floor is ergonomic. Absolutely no team efforts.
The hours and days off on two week rotation are great.
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Maryland – March 3, 2018
Too much paperwork , drivers don't like cameras in your face always, can't go the speed limit, too much micromanagement..... The crew is great bunch of guys I like routes and customers If company hadn't lied about raises and bonuses I would have too much bad to say about Company
Cameras I the trucks always on, not allowed to drive over 64mph, lied about raises and bonuses
Block line Team Member (Former Employee) – Albion, MI 49224 – February 11, 2018
Unorganized, from the front office all the way through the whole factory. Despite being highly unorganized, they try to force out the maximum amount of product daily, whether they have adequete staffing or not. This creates a toxic environment, one in which you are pushed to rush to keep up daily, though they claim they don't condone rushing, they force you to work as fast as you can....very dangerous! The pay is way too low at all levels, giving you literally no incentive to want to advance.
3 day weekends every other weekend, and a short workweek everyother week.
Healthcare is expensive, wages are low, safety standards are almost non-existant.
Production Block Line (Former Employee) – Greenville, OH – February 7, 2018
God place to work. Pay is not bad, many oppurtunities for bonuses. Management very easy to work with. Only down fall for me was lack of carreer progression. You work with dry ice so hands get cold alot. I would go back to work for this company. More pros than cons.
ANNONYMOUS (Current Employee) – Decatur, IL – January 22, 2018
There is plenty of opportunity for job advancement or career changes not only within our office, but as there are constantly new locations being opened. My direct supervisor is accomodating and we work as a team to get tasks accomplished. We have great benefits for a manufacturing industry, and the job is always changelling and rewarding when completed tasks are achieved. This is a challenging work environment and I love learning new tasks associated with it.
Box repair (Former Employee) – Decatur, IL – January 19, 2018
The HR helped set up my benefits account, then when it came time to receive benefits, I did not due to HR. The hours are 8-430 , which are inconvenient for appointments such as dentists, doctors, or insurance and you get no breaks, but you do get a half hour lunch, but can take up to an hour if approved. I have 4 bosses in the corporate office, all of which lack communication between themselves, so they all tell you different tasks, then complain when you do something wrong. You get one sick day a year, and 1 paid vacation after a year. They claim to be all about safety, but could care less about it.
Driver (Former Employee) – Brookhaven, MS – December 4, 2017
Could be a good company to work but the terminal manager didn't know anything about dispatching.. it was a buddy system when dispatching, all the favorites got the good loads.. they gave all the 500+ mile loads to sub contractors. Always some form of drama and drivers are having to constantly call corporate..the turn over rate is extremely high..they went through 15 in just 7 months out of the terminal I was in ..and the 70,000+ they claim you'll never see you only run 2,000 miles every other week, otherwise it's 1500
Lack of management, don't care about drivers, wants you on call 24/7
Driver (Current Employee) – East Hartford, CT – October 18, 2017
I've worked at the East Hartford CT location for a year now and its pretty decent. Starting pay is great ($19) $19.50 after 90. plus $1 per hour extra if you drive safe. $20.50 total. I received a $1 raise on schedule so I was pretty happy with that too. The new manager is chill as long as you show up and do your job. My only problem is the safety training. it makes you feel like a child because you do the same 10 minute training sessions every month as if you were going to forget them after you finished. Other than that I recommend.... this branch at least.
