Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Easy fast paced job with lots of overtime. Training could be better and lacks consistency and can change from day to day. However the job can be enjoyable and other employees are willing to support you.

They work you hard and will not give room for growth within the business

They hire too many temps for the busy season and lay most of them off at the end of the season due to not enough work, and do not hire on as promised.

Pros

Nothing really

Cons

Bad hiring on process

Avoid

Management was a joke. I got pointed for showing up when I was told even though I had texts and emails to show my case. Completely unprofessional and rude individuals. No direction or management guidance. Just stay away. Couldn't park anywhere had to ride the bus from a lot at a church. Only the bus driver was kind enough to let me know they wouldn't drop me back off at my car after work. So I was supposed to walk across ridiculously busy roads to get to it in the dark with nothing other than my camera flash for a phone?!? The job was repetitive and they didn't care about anything other than numbers. No instructions were given when help was needed it was nowhere to be found. I can't read Arabic, or French etc to know how to change it to English. But somehow it's my fault for holding the line up when there is no trainer or lead to help me. Only to be told by everyone else if u can't read it then just say it's fine to make numbers.

Pros

Gave a break

Cons

Everything esp mgmt

Don't waste you time here.

This place, they have favorites, they like to keep moving you around to learn everything so they can use you where they need you but the pay sucks. It's the lowest pay for a warehouse that I've ever been to. The job itself is easy, but it's mind-numbingly easy. You will end up falling asleep. They make you go through these very tight metal detectors that are set tighter than airport security. They treat you like a criminal 8 times a day going through these things.

Pros

easy work, 2 10 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch which is good

Cons

treat you like a criminal, pay, management

They get rid of workers that stay on task and workers that walk around get to stay.

I was never told about the point system for attendance. I was never given a verbal, written or final written or even how many points I had or that I was even close to being terminated. I was told to go home multiple times because I felt sick and was told not to come to work if sick during this Pandemic.

Pros

Good hours

Cons

No one telling how you are doing

Great Company, but low pay

It's a great company to work for, but they have very low pay for working in a warehouse. I have never worked in a warehouse where you make about as much as a Walmart employee.

Pros

Nice job, great security, good management

Cons

Low pay

No work/life balance

The work life balance is not the greatest. They recently changed things for OT but said they will change back if they want or need too. We recently worked 10hr days and Saturdays (mandatory) and they didn’t gave out attendance points for people who couldn’t make it to work due to exhaustion.

The job was ok. A typical day at work is you come in the building, go through security, and sit down and work on cell phones the whole day. easy work, but boring

Overall, this is not the best company to work for

They do not give enough training to people. If the supervisors and team leads don’t like you, you will not succeed. The use of an attendance point system is unfair, especially for people with chronic.issues

The work is easy but the goals and people are difficult

In my first week, I liked it but later on I hated it there. I was thinking this might be a good place to work because it’s really diverse but I quickly learned that they discriminate heavily in there. Some of the leads are rude and no help. And majority of the women were very vindictive and bullies. Now for the work it’s easy but management found a way to make meet goals difficult for everyone with jda.

Job Review

Working at a warehouse was a kind of hard but very rewarding. It was a lot of lifting but that was to be expected working in a warehouse. Knowing at the end of the day you did a job well done

Don't waste your time

No diversity, disrespectful staff and management. The company DOES NOT care about the employees. Will get rid of you without a second thought. They also refuse to work with you, and will not try to accommodate anyone for their disability or life complications.

They don't care about their employees

The management is terrible. They lie to you and never try to help you. The Hr department does have a couple decent people in it. The job is easy if you can deal with management. It's not a place to work if you are a team player, they run it like you nobody the supervisors yell at you and talk down to you like you are a 3 year old. And they have some of the laziest management I have ever seen. Their employees do not matter

Pros

Easy job

Cons

Management, not enough money, and no respect for the employees
