Career opportunities

I was excited to work for this company and possibly advance. Lost that when they were bought out and a good percentage of employees were laid off. Had to fight to keep my job and lost all hope of advancement. Work load increased and understanding of family needs were never to be considered.

Pros

Good pay, advancement from low positions

Cons

Heavy workload, low family priority, no work life balance

Toxic management. Good employees

Lots of shady things done by mgmt. Class b drivers make way more then class a drivers. That's unheard of anywhere else. My manager wasn't even licensed to drive my truck. Red route is brutal during the summer and outright dangerous during the winter. Benefits are terrible with super high deductibles. Only reason I stayed as long as I did was the other employees.

Pros

Other employees

Cons

Way to many to list.

Does not care about employees

Low pay, long hours and a mentality that if you dont work extra youre not doing your job. Management does not care about the well being of employees, they only care about hitting quotas

Very Poor Environment

Working with the receivers was awesome! I was able to meet many really cool people when delivering the products. The problems were not with our customers, it was with Management and how they deal with the employees. This is NOT a place to work if you are a woman with a CDL, they will run you into the ground with harassment!

Cons

Very poor Leadership

Too many meetings

Fast paced. Job security

Easy enough job. Low quota so it’s easy to get your numbers and they train for everything there, no experience required. Good opportunity if you’re looking for a way into the warehouse business.

Pros

Paid training

Cons

Short breaks. No climate control

Changes are a coming.

Been with this group for 12 years. The latest ownership is taking over at the end of July. I strongly feel the new ownership will be like Bob Brown's Coke when I first started. Mr Brown and our new owner, friends, both in their 80's are cut from the same cloth. Customers first. Then, the associates, us, you reward and recognize. The ownership in between was, well, poor.

Pros

Currently, none.

Cons

See above review.

Great place to work for. Everyone is always eager to help you learn and grow.

I am a merchandising operation supervisor. I work with my team on finish accounts and making sure that each associate is happy and staying on task. I have started a program that will help each associate move into a job they want in the future with the company.

decent work environment

It was a pretty simple job. If you want to interact with other co workers, this is not the job for you! If you're an outgoing person with good people skills, you'll forget that working here! You have to keep your numbers up when building orders so basically you barely know the people you work with...

Pros

nice breakroom, nice front office workers

Cons

short lunch, no ac, pallet jacks are faulty
