Worst place i ever worked
Line gopher (Former Employee) –  Pawtucket Rhode IslandJanuary 29, 2018
There is no heat in the winter and management is a joke. Working conditions are terrible and so is the pay. I do not suggest anyone apply or work here. If they offer you a job Run for the Hills.

Picker/Packer/Shipper (Current Employee) –  Hammond, INApril 23, 2017
This is the worst place to work. Yes the work is easy but it matches the low pay rate. No room for growth and no rasises are ever given. Manager talks a good game, but everything she says is a lie.
Pros
Easy work, good work hours
Cons
Bad management, dirty warehouse, bad pay

The closest thing to slave labor they could manage
Line (Former Employee) –  Toledo, OHJuly 13, 2016
Everything was coated in a thick layer of dust, hard to breathe no ventalation with maybe 7 box fans trying to cool a football field sized building. If its 80 degrees outside its 95 degrees in the building. The dust will make it very hard to breathe in the winter with no heating elements of any kind. No vacation no way to request days off. Theyd sooner fire you than let you miss a day. Forced overtime every week so if you sigm up for a 4 day shift youll be working 5 10 hour shifts a week maybe more. The break rooms/ bathrooms are dreadful. The managers will lie to you from their air conditioned office not to mention how clueless they are, their descriptions of your job duties will be outdated by almost a year its crazy how little they actually know about the day to day operations.
Just remember if you have a family theyd sooner fire you then let you take a day off for a baseball game or go to a doctors appointment. The pay is not worth the trouble!!!
Pros
None

Slave labor

Work conditions were deplorable
Picker (Former Employee) –  Toledo OhioMarch 31, 2015
I worked 8 hour days picking books from heavy boxes on high shelves in a warehouse that was dusty, dirty and had rodent dropping everywhere.
The book were not treated with respect, often tossed around with out care if the pages were going to be torn or if the cover would be ripped.
The only thing at I really have good to say is I was happy to see that majority of the management was staffed by females so the company is okay with breaking the glass ceiling.
Pros
company feminist friendly
Cons
poor work condition
