A day as Driver
Driver (Current Employee) –  Elmwood, LAJune 1, 2019
Not the worst Job but surely not the best, late loading trucks while your expected to be at work early, so you have to sit for hours at time before trucks are loaded. Routes at time can be too long and heavy, so you either be out for 14 hours or might exceed your D.O.T time, but it only matters that you do all delivery management don't care if you get caught by D.O.T that's on you. Work is at least 60 hours per week and paid a average of $1000 per week, before tax or $1500 -$1700 biweekly after tax. Shift starts early 2 :30am at times and get back at around mid afternoon from1pm to around 5:30pm which depends on your route. The warehouse makes your Job even more difficult with there lack of training on how to stock or there lack of caring
Pros
Can be flexible at times
Cons
Work very hard 60hours are more with low pay.no OT

Pros
Two breaks

Second break was only 10mins

Computer Operator (Former Employee) –  Harahan, LAJune 20, 2018
A typical day was ensuring the proper supplies were available for the employees in the computer room. If you knew computers, the job was super easy, fast paced, and relaxing.

it is very hard to do your job at Imperial, the tools and training needed to be successful are not provided easily or are non-existent. The company as a whole is short-sighted.

Don't want you to talk to people while working.
Reachlift (Former Employee) –  701 Edward Ave HarahanMarch 2, 2017
They tell you about working for incentives is unlimited but wait till your check comes you will find out. They delete your productivity numbers and shorten your incentive hrs. They hire inmates so that should say alot about this place not saying they don't deserve a job while incarcerated.
Pros
They do feed you I must say
Cons
10 min break, 40 min lunch

2nd Shift Area Supervisor (Former Employee) –  701 Edwards Ave. Harahan La 70123June 6, 2015
Everyone comes to work, the orders are put out in timely manors and is executed to the fullest. I've learned that every day is a learning experience. There is always something new or different ways to perform job duties that are efficient for the company. Management works well with coworkers and coworkers are dedicated employees. The hardest part of the job would have to be not having sufficient amount of supplies. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be filling and completing orders efficiently and smoothly.
