cool place towork
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Solon, OHJanuary 18, 2019
A day at great lakes consisted of fast past from beginning to end of each shift. Job teaches you how to work in 15 below temperatures.Order selecting ,and forklift operators play a major part in the day. Every employee is appreciated for his or her work performance in enduring such temperatures.Each and every individual is respected.The hardest part about the job is the cold.The most enjoyable part about the job is the pay and benefits.

learned alot of new information on the equipment used in warehouses,
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Solon, OHOctober 14, 2018

Pros
Liked the time of day and doing my job
Cons
They hired too many felons, that did not leave there issues at home

Decent place to work.
Porter/Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Solon, OHDecember 28, 2017
