Their pay is awful, they’re very cheap their “perks” are awful and out dated. They don’t care about employees they lie about pay and increases. Management is awful and make excuses for others unprofessional behavior. They have no training program so you get trained if they feel like it but are expected to know. I’ve never worked for more selfish people in my life. You can keep all the money you want but you can’t take it with you
Cons
The entire establishment

Not a welcoming environment in the least. Any possibility of growth is based on being in the right circle. Poorly run with no support from corporate.
Pros
The job itself is enjoyable.
Cons
Toxic individuals.

Management provided no direction or training. There was no documentation or leadership. When there was direction, management changed it. There was also inconsistency with the training and direction by management.

When you first start they're nice & professional. But as time goes on, & as another person said, they're snakes. If you don't act like them they talk about you behind your back & try to get you in trouble. Corporate does nothing to fix any issues & some management have no relevant experience in their field. There's definitely no room for advancement unless connected or family.

Was told I was to be doing basic material handling/dock work( forklift etc) From the very beginning my coworkers would often try pressuring me into doing things that weren’t part of my job. Such as handling various chemicals. I wasn’t getting paid chemical operator pay, nor did I even want the position. It’s not worth it..the training was very sketchy and questionable. Management wanted to cross train you in everything but not give you any pay raise This company will lie to you. You have a few good guys but mostly all snakes. here.

While those in charge are truly caring people, they can be very cheap and slow to get you what you need. They are very reactive instead of proactive which tends to get frustrating. The future looks bright with a chance for the company to grow exponentially.
Pros
Caring management
Cons
Disorganized

Management lies to employees about pay . tells you that this will be your starting wage and then when you get your check its differant . The employees work good together there but are poor managed . I enjoy doing my job but too much confusion and choas.

Cons
You have to go through a temp agency

Company operates as though still stuck in the 1980's. Sales not truly in control of territory or pricing. Pricing is done manually which takes away from sales time.
Cons
Pay, Management

A typical day at work is filled with exciting and new opportunities. My day begins at 7:00am and is filled with changing circumstances that keep the job fun and exciting. Since my employ, I have learned to problem solve and meet challenges head on, regardless of the level of difficulty. "I don't know" is never an acceptable answer and meeting our quality policy is expected at all times.The management staff at Interstate Chemical Company work together as a cohesive team, inspiring each other to succeed and maintain our quality policy. Co-workers are respectful and professional, making the job that much easier to be a part of. The hardest part of the job is the speed at which we are required to work. Multi-tasking is not only expected, it is required on a daily basis. The most enjoyable part of the job are the friendships that I have acquired, as the employees are considered the greatest asset that we have of all.
Pros
Employees, break room, snack bar

Everyone is for the most part easy to get along with, benefits are good and job is straightforward most of the time. Learn alot about the chemical business as well as a normal shipping/receiving warehouse environment. Pay could be better for working around dangerous chemicals but the benefits are not bad for an entry level job.
