Order Selector Trainer (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 30, 2018
Work hard and make good money. Hours can get rough, 12+ hour nights on a regular basis. Holiday hours get a little better and summer time ours are decent since work is mainly orders pulled for schools.
Do not work here unless you want to get your cdl through them. Then after that leave! They have you delivering to places where trucks dont belong (tight spaces, neighborhoods that says no trucks allowed) and if you get a ticket or accident its your fault. They break all the rules here including running out of hours. The pay is terrible considering the fact you're working almost 70 hours a week. Managment never answers the phone! And if u get to a stop and the warehouse forgot or damaged a case it comes out of your paycheck. Seriously FIND ANOTHER JOB.. KEEP LOOKING
I really enjoyed my time here and would work here again in a heart beat, unfortunately labott nomatter if you leave on good terms will not re hire ex employees. I left labatt to pursue better opportunities in my truck driving career.
A typical night would consist of order selecting dry and frozen food from warehouse and freezer and shipping to trucks for next day delivery. I learned to work in cooler temperatures for the first time in the freezer. Management gives routes and shipping orders according to work orders. The hardest part of the job was adjusting to the colder temperatures. The most enjoyable part of the job was busy nights and fast finishes.
Dock Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 8, 2018
dock running at labatt is a great way to get started in warehousing. run the pallets to the right isles all day and youre done. you can get offered to order select at night for more hours and opportunities.
It’s a job to get you some driving experience under your license. The pay sucks and management is poor. They work you like a slave. Get some experience and get out. Is not worth the headaches. They are always short on drivers which makes it tough on the drivers.
Order Selector (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 12, 2018
I was hired as a night selector and was using this job as a second source to pay off student loans. The job concept is very remedial. You get a list of products at 5pm, hop on your motorized tugger, hook up a flatbed, and grab your products from the warehouse. Repeat all night long until they say it's over, which can result in very long nights most of the time. The major knock on that is you get base pay so no overtime. Most nights will go way past 8 hours. The job doesn't require you to talk to anyone so most people at work will stay to themselves. I'm used to greeting people, and that was not the case at Labatt. They want everyone to work super fast, but everyone is using forklifts, tuggers, etc. That's definitely not a safe atmosphere is you ask me. I almost got hit a few times, simply because everyone is speeding in the warehouse while coming around corners, looking at shelves instead of whats in front of them, etc. Human Resources, specifically at the Houston location is laughable, I'm just going to be honest. It's completely unprofessional, and inexperienced. My day job's management and HR is leaps and bounds over Labatt's. I guess since they have a high turnover, they just don't really care for the employees that much. I've been at my day job for 10 years and will most likely stay another 10 years because that's what employees do when they work for great companies. I would only recommend this job to someone who really needs a job super fast, otherwise I would pass on this one.
day receiving (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – December 9, 2017
Houston Labatt is a good place to work for The management here is poor, (operations, Supervisor & lead ) All change up ideas & noting really works for any improvement If you call in they give u have time & question you so much Management (Supervisor) has poor communication skills , really rude in the past both night & morning supervisor have been accused with harassment. Management likes to hide behind windows to watch their employees, Most of all good working people leave.
Not all employees here have the proper skills & knowledge for a promotion or position to grow with the company.
