Worst Company I ever worked for
Inventory Manager (Former Employee) –  Berlin, MDAugust 5, 2018
Run away fast! If you value a work/life balance, this isn't it. If you are an employee, mandatory overtime all the time. Company uses temporary workers, to replace full time workers. If you are considering a management position, except for pay, this is the worst company you could choose. You will be expected to work a minimum of 60 hours per week. You will work with an owner and upper-management staff that will hire you, then do everything they can to blame you for their failures, then fire you.

none

Physically demanding & long hours!!
Driver (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 17, 2018
Be prepared to unload 20,000+ lbs of chicken (40-60lb boxes) by hand on to a hand truck than unload into fridge at customer. You will have between 10-16 stops a day locally/mostly, and your done when you finish... Takes about 10-12 hours a day, 6 days a week. Not paid hourly, but by the daily route... $175-200 a day. Hard work, long hours, long week and mediocre pay for the work!

Most unorganized place ever
Driver (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 12, 2018
Management cares nothing about drivers. Will work you until to fall out or they tired of you and fire you. Routing is the worst I've ever seen. And equipment breaks down every other day. Turn over ratio is the worst cause pay doesn't match job.
