Associate (Former Employee) – Pleasant Prairie, WI – October 21, 2018
Love this job. Regret ever leaving the place! The production based pay gives you daily motivation to work hard and try to make as much as you can. You just have to be smart and driven. So many guys come into this job and don't have the stones to do the job. As long as you listen to your training and soak up any advice from the knowledgeable employees here, you should easily be able to earn an hourly wage that beats any other job you can find in the area. Everyone expects to make those high wages immediately when they start, but it takes time to get familiar with the loads and get in a groove. Give it 2-3 months and you'll have more money on your check than you know what to do with.
Worst thing about the job honestly is the start times. Meijer's receiving window is from 12:30am to about 1pm. It's not the worst, but makes having a social life hard at times.
Bad days happen sometimes. Lack of motivation and work ethic in coworkers can result in prolonged shifts. Whether it's those trendy call ins or just guys not having the drive to make money so they stand around talking rather than working.
A lot of reviews on here are so far from the truth. Supervisors 'friends' arent given certain trucks. There are company procedures and list protocol that prevent these things. Just assumptions made by individuals uninformed of how this company works.
This is a wonderful company. I was filling in for someone on maternity leave. Wonderful management very concerned about work/ life balance. If they had a position available I’m sure I would still be there!
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Dacula, GA – October 9, 2018
Warehouse work was stressful and dangerous. Not properly compensated for the hours and danger. FHI was a subcontractor for Publix supermarket. Work involved operating a forklift to load and unload trucks.

It was a production based job so some days you made good money some days you really ain’t make nothing. Good thing they had road crews so when we got a new contract at a new places you could go on the road to make more money.
Paid by Production not Hourly. So you would have to Buss your butt for money
Freight Handler (Former Employee) – Dacula, GA – September 28, 2018
This job was ok just. They dont have any Benefits & You also dont get paid by hour. You get paid by how many trucks you unload. U can sit 2 or 3 hrs waiting on a Truck wasting time. Cause while you wait your not getting paid.

Favoritism is rampant. If you like to kiss butt you might be ok if not you will watch the same people make good money while you do equal work for far less pay. You need to do drugs to cope with the people in position of power here. Terrible job period.
Warehouse/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – September 25, 2018
One of the worst jobs around. The lead on the shift picked your trucks to do which is based on how much you make, and he gave me such bad ones that I would leave an eight hour shift making less than $30. Once a buddy of mine filled in at lead and he gave me the correct trucks and that night I made over $100. Therefore, I was being treated unfavorable
What a waste of time! They tell you that you'll make all this money but that's a lie. When you're training, it's 60/40. My first day they had me go 8 hours straight, no break. Myself and the person I worked with got thru 6 trucks. When I got my work report detailing the work and pay the day before I made $30,19,19,19,15 and $6 for a grand total of $99 after taxes. Then on the second day I show up for work I get 1 truck and then they had me sitting around not making any money. This place is a total rip off and only for the most desperate. To make the kind of money they advertise you would have to bust out anywhere from 10-12 trucks a day SOLO. Keep looking, you'll find something better.

Slaving Away (Current Employee) – Florida – September 12, 2018
Management treats their crew like a slaves They have no back bone and never stick up for the team. They are always missing and when they are around, are “too busy” kissin warehouse managers backside. Company doesn’t pay enough to make a decent living, and their policy allows for 3 strikes before you get fired meanin if you late, you get a strike. When people do get 3 strikes because they don’t care about their job, they still allowed to continue working while the good people have to carry them through the day. The clerk messes up our money so we have to fight to get it corrected... They about to lose a lot of people if things don’t change
There are good people who will help you right
Management, hours, fighting for trucks, wrong money
The job was not bad but they out people in positions just because which made the work load harder than it needed to be. Most days the lead would pick who would get easier trucks which only made the day longer.
