The Call Center is entirely too busy and micro managed
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Glen Burnie, MD – July 31, 2018
The job started out ok but slowly went down hill. The Managers were micro managing and you would be spoken to if you took too much time trying to help a customer. The place had too many "clicks" and if you weren't included in one you were basically out there in the weeds alone. The Managers have their favorites and it is very apparent.
Forklift driver .cherry picker ..long long hours .fast pace not enough time in day to get some jobs done cause more would come in.most staff would be team players others werent i never missed a days work i had perfect attendace all my years of woring wirh jjhaines.honestly before new management arrived it was less stressful. Once new management. Came in alot of employees moved on to different employment.
A good place to grow as a warehouse associate. There were great team members and a great system of word production. Driving forklifts are a very fun and exciting job and i hope to do it again in the future.
Dock Worker/Forklift Operator/jockey (Former Employee) – Middletown, PA – August 18, 2017
A typical day at work was punching in, then doing are forklift inspection, and then we had 3 shuttle trailers to unload and separate the product to the different runs they went on..then we backed in the trailers we had to load and loaded them by the stops in witch they came off.I learned how to hook up and break down doubles and back trailers in to the dock.the hardest part of the job was figuring out how load 12&15ft rolls of carpet with skids of product in witch order they came off for delivery. The rolls of carpet padding were pretty tiring also.The most enjoyable part of the job was the guys i worked with and the paycheck.

Inventory Control (Former Employee) – Glen Burnie, MD – February 19, 2015
Co workers are rude and complain all day everyday. You are forced to use any time you have for "shut down" days. If you are new and don't have time off yet, you have to have an unpaid day off. If there is a death in the family and you take off for their funeral, that counts as a call out (even if it's approved ahead of time). You are faulted if your kids are sick and can not make it into work. If fired, you do not receive your unused vacation pay and health insurance stops immediately. Co workers use foul language, loudly, and are never reprimanded. Overall experience has been the worse I've ever dealt with in the workforce.
Unrealistic expectations and very rude and unprofessional work environment
Associate (Current Employee) – Maryland – January 31, 2015
There are very few positive aspects of this company, except that the work is generally Monday through Friday. There are many instances of forced overtime on weekends, though. Co-workers make the job almost unbearable. The vast majority of employees are uneducated, unintelligent, negative, chronic complainers. The work itself is mind-numbing and dull. As you can see from the other employee reviews, education and intelligence are not hiring factors. Do not expect support from coworkers or for team members to be on the same page regarding how to perform job functions.
Benefits are in line with other entry level positions. 401k with a partial match, healthcare benefits, nominal number of paid days off, certain extras such as discounts on Verizon cell phone plans and accessories, occasional free lunch, etc. Employees are subjected to random drug testing and there are specific days of the year (called shut down days) where you are forced to use one of your few paid days off. Vacation days do not carry over, but you don't get very many to begin with anyway.
This would be a good company for someone entering the workforce for the first time or after an extended absence as long as they can ignore the constant complaining and negativity around them. If you have any kind of education, there are better options to be found.
