Its a warehouse job and of course its long hour shifts
Package Handler/Sorter (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – September 6, 2018
it was just a lot of standing and long hour shifts but the workers are good and kind people. Typical type of day for me working there was just standing at one station or being rotated and shifted throught each station and each station had its own metal to package. For me the enjoyable part was the people they were great and the hardest was trying to take over another coworkers job well they were falling asleep on the line and putting more work on me.

You put parts together which is easy once you get a rhythm down. Management wasn't too bad. The hardest part of the job was just getting a routine down for each individual job. The enjoyable part was that you weren't isolated. you have others around you to converse with.

Company is family owned. This is great when it comes to time of need when you have to be home. They can be very understanding. The downside of this small family owned company is the lack of growth. After having been there for many years and following the dangled carrot, it was time to go. Empty promises...

there were a few problems at some points with management. communication lacked on certain shifts. training lacked as well on some shifts. with good training though, the job is pretty simple and there will be no issues.

I was sent to a great company,with standard hours,7-3:30.We rotated Saturdays with other employees,so we each worked one a month.The company was setting up a new building,and listened to our recommendations to ease work loads,setting up locations for stock,etc.Great management,the HR guy would distribute checks,and listen to any complaints,or ways to get tasks done better.

Most of the work isn’t overly hard just repetitive, but the stations that are hard if you fall behind you are screwed. Management is lax. The workplace is really depressing and is like working with zombies. Overall this is a mindless job in which they just need warm body’s to do repetitive labor.
Shipping and Receiving Dockworker (Former Employee) – Plano, IL – August 17, 2017
A staffing company for Plano Synergy Inc. in Plano, IL that was so bad that the company kicked them out. No help for employees, workers got the run around all the time constantly being switched to different locations on a moments notice, sometimes even while working at a different plant half way through the day. Everything about this company is awful, and they would literally lie to your face if given the chance. I recommend never working there or using their services.
Production Worker (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – January 20, 2017
Is cool because you get to rest 3 days out of the week, and working extra day is overtime, which they do pay overtime. The only thing i didn't like is that they won't give you the 40 hours they tell you that they will give you, so instead of making 40 hours per week i was making 20, which i just can live with a check that small. The coworkers are great people, is that the manager just didn't call me to work again and is already been 3 weeks with working full time. Also the CEO sometimes goes and walk around the warehouse which i really felt like he cares about the people in the frontline.

little to no possibility of advancement, paid holidays if you meet minimum hours worked prior to holiday, most likely you'll remain a temp indefinitely, some workers with 10 years in are still temps, only good thing I have to say is the facility is climate controlled(heat and air conditioned), health insurance available but it costs about $80 a week, one paid 10 minute break, 30 minute unpaid lunch
maintenance tech (Former Employee) – El Paso Texas – September 23, 2015
company as a whole might be OK. but I would not know. the company who i was working at was filled with liars, claiming one thing then never fulfilling those claims.I worked a total of one week and 2.5 days for this company honestly id rather be jobless than to apply to this company again..They like to have meetings with you off the clock which is against Texas state law and federal labor standards. trying to collect is a nightmare so i wrote it off as a loss and I am sharing this information with you. Be very Cautious.
Independent work day with plenty of opportunity to learn
Material Handler and Tech Assist (Former Employee) – Sandwich, IL – January 20, 2015
The day begins with some minimal paperwork, followed by an overwhelming amount of cleaning (the entire back half of a 150 yd factory), and continues however you choose. Whether this includes pre-staging all of your materials for job changes in the presses, or performing preventative maintenance on the assembly line machinery is entirely up to the employee. Everything else is called for over a P.A. system or an assigned walkie-talkie. Gaylords need to be supplied for both material and scrapping purposes and the most difficult task at hand is delivering these without the help of a forklift.
An hour long lunch.
