Customer Care Agent / Receiving Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – February 23, 2018
If you are trained right at any place you will succeed. When companies take pride in training their staff then they will have a staff willing to go the extra mile because they know what they are doing it for.
Manufacturing Team Lead over Production (Former Employee) – Collierville, TN – September 12, 2017
A typical day would be getting started on finding out who is missing from work so I could fill in the blanks in order to meet my production goal. Team Leads were stretched incredibly thin and often too much work was placed onto more "dependable" employees rather than training the current ones in place to handle more assignments. Management is often easier on some longer term employees rather than keeping an even spectrum across the board and applying training where needed. I loved working alongside with the Director, HR, and even the Vice president and president of the Plumbing Division. Most of the management team took the time to understand the ongoing issues and did what they could to try and resolve the issues but they have their work to get done as well and resources are scarce. One thing I will miss will be my full-time coworkers as they are motivated and do a wonderful job. The trickle down theory applies as well when other temporary or non-dependable full time employees were absent with or w/o excuse, and had to pick up the extra slack in order to meet our daily numbers. IN order to meet our goals, there were more than one thing that needed to happen. The buyers had to be in place with the appropriate components arriving in at the proper times, the scheduler had to know these components were in house and we got our schedules from them. When we do not have stock on certain items, back-orders are created which is just "bad business". The customer comes first and if ordering a specific finished good, should receive all of said item and not a partial shipment, whichmore... brings the sales team into place. I could go on all day but I rate this job right in the middle. The only thing that really holds me back is the career advancement as there doesn't seem to be any room for growth in that area.less
Production Operator (Former Employee) – Collierville, TN – January 9, 2017
A typical day consisted of staying well hydrated so you won't fall out in that heat box. The hardest part of the job was trying to make production on machines that were ancient and that continuously broke down or had issues daily.
Hot!!!!, low pay, horrible management, no advancement
Material handler (Former Employee) – collierville,tn – October 4, 2014
Nice job although the management was kind of shady. A day at the job would be ok if the team worked together, but management had favorites. That's not proper behavior within a work environment. I have learned a lot from the job such as material control and interaction with employees. I learned management skills such as developing strategies needed to get the work done on time and while following safety rules.

Freight / Export Customer Service Manager (Current Employee) – Gardena, CA – April 8, 2013
I actually have 3 different sets of responsibility here. I am the Export Customer Service Manager responsible for leading a team through daily order processing and all shipping documents/task that go along with it. I am also the Freight Manager where I oversee all freight functions for the company (choosing carriers, setting policies, etc.). I also generate the sales and ad hoc reports for one division of the corporation. I use Cognos, Query, iSystems and Microsoft Excel. I have been with the company over 16 years. My coworkers are great but the BOD has put a relatively new senior management team in place which has changed the priorities and culture of the company over the past few years. They are preparing to sell the company fr the third time since I have been there.
great coworkers, benefits
long drive (30 miles each way), new priorities and culture put in place recently.
