Working at imperial can be very stressful . Quality and quantity of workload can be difficult to attain . I worked in sales for 18 years without using any sick time and it was never appreciated. Be very careful of the entire management team . They should not be trusted . On a good note , they do have many employees that have been there for 25+ years and the company is big on supporting United Way etc.
not a good job for advancement
i was laid off with 2 months notice. not severance pay not professional when they told us they were laying us off.
my normal day was great i could start when i wanted i was on my own it was a good job until they told us we were getting laid off. my manager was a nice guy he got laid off also.
Amazing management team, work was just enough and easy to get the hang of. I was sad to go but our services were no longer needed in the store chain we serviced. Thank you Imperial for helping this stay-at-home momma get out and help contribute to her family’s income!
My position was a work alone job. Other employees from Imperial Distributors rarely seen. Supervisors seldom seen. All company employee activities/ perks, etc are held out of state, therefore difficult if not impossible to participate
401K, vacation time
No scheduled breaks, little direction, large work load
Management consistently disregards the well-being of their own employees. Health concerns were raised to HR multiple times but the company refuses to have the warehouse cleaned. They also work until finish so you never know when you can go home. If that happened to be at 4 am, you were expected to be at work at 7 am the next morning. Unless you're desperate for work, give this one a pass.
Lot of mechanical issues with conveyor system, ,management has a "not my department not my problem attitude". Long nights, I've never seen a place where people quit at lunch or walk off so fast. Favoritism and racism very prevalent.
They lie about bonuses, they bait you in talking about good pay which i didnt get because where i was working the whole group had to do a certain number for everyone to get bonus it wasnt on what you did even though u made your numbers. Manager was horrible, rude didnt know how to communicate, he would talk about issues with other employees and not you.
counter (Former Employee) - inside - August 20, 2019
From day one couple jerks tried to harassed me . They are from Caribbean and I'm not. Do not need much to make un-friendly condition.
Just one bad mannered supervisor, couple angry ,lying workers with racial pre-justice and you "all set".
HR need to remind to employees that new workers regular people and MUST be treated as HUMANS, not like a dirt.
Worst thing is this : few un-friendlies still employed by this company.
A typical day start out with me heading out to one or more assigned Stop and Shop stores. When I arrive I quickly connect with the Department Head to discuss any concerns that may have presented and proceed with a plan.
For my short time working here it was in some extreme weather conditions when you had to move stuff to the trucks. The other workers got fired and 3 people had to stay til 4 am so it wasnt my best experience for work
Merchandiser (Former Employee) - New Jersey - October 13, 2018
The training they provide for merchandisers in grocery stores is horrible. They show you how to use the technology but that's about it.
No real explanation of what's expected from you in the stores and the manager they hired was also new and they didn't give her any outside training besides the technology. One day she was fired simply because they failed to help her understand what they wanted her to do. That's not right.
The pay wasn't good either and if they don't like you for non business related reasons they'll fire you. Not healthy place to work. Woke up every day in fear I would be fired even though I did everything they told me to do.
Stores were super messy and their employees are rude and treat you like garbage for being a vendor.
So happy I left, they have high turnover rate for a reason.
Met the CEO and he and his wife are very nice but it ends there.
Even their daughter is rude and unprofessional towards employees.
