Extremely toxic work environment.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 13, 2018
Extremely toxic work culture with few benefits. Their model for revenue generation was unsustainable amid changes in the reverse logistics process and increasing market competition. This translated into unrealistic sales targets for business development and sales teams. Most of my colleagues were searching for jobs elsewhere.

It's a warehouse job.

The general manager of the Plainfield facility uses and abuses her employees and has obvious favoritism. The workplace drama and politics are a nightmare.
Pros
Set schedule, casual dress code, generally more relaxed than other warehouse jobs

Negligent or incompetent management, does not pay as much as other warehouse jobs, high turnover, no climate control

Tidious, and always "on the move" type of work.
Scrap Venture- Assistant Site Manager (Current Employee) –  O‘ahu, HIMay 15, 2018
Daily Routine:
Receive and stage scrap property according to metal content. Lot to sales, Load content to buyers using MHEs. Tend to customers via phone or in person. Visit off-site locations. Daily computer work- data entry, emails, research, etc.
I've learned a lot from Liquidity Services including customer service, competitiveness with other companies, and loyalty.
Management is great here. They always had the company's best interest, especially when it came to the employees. Coverage when not enough workers, or empathy and sympathy when tough times came along.
I think it would be hard for me especially to say goodbye when time comes because I've gotten really close with my peers and upper management, working with them for over 16 years.
Most enjoyable part of work will always be coming to work. I always have had good vibes coming to work everyday, sharing my work day with co-workers and teammates from contractors to federal workers.
Pros
Constant work, Monday through Friday. Off weekends.
Cons
Not much room for advancement.

Easy but not worth it
Customer Support Representative (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZJanuary 13, 2018
The company is going under. Departments rarely communicated making customer assistance difficult. Management rarely took escalated calls. No recognition for your work until your annual review. No advancement opportunities.
Pros
Work life balance. Wages. Benefits
Cons
Too many. No structure. Management. Lack of communication.

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Plainfield, INJuly 25, 2018
Great people, work wasn't hard, great hours and breaks. We got 2 paid 15-minute breaks and one 30 minute lunch break unpaid. Management would often cook lunches or order food for employees. Employment recognition every month as well and prizes were included.

Decent Company concept, poor management, hostile work environment
Buyer Relations Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Garland, TXAugust 24, 2018
This company started out as a dream to work at, however this changed when management decided they wanted a "culture change" which resulted in many valuable employees quitting and some being forced out of the company especially those that were making good money and had put in multiple years as a valued employee. The company says they promoted from within however often hired people from the outside who had 0 knowledge of how the company or processes worked and often were very abusive of their new found "power" this of course resulted in a mass change as most people left once they realized the type of work environment this was becoming.
I learned a lot about online auction sites, business to business, resale, and other online venues.
Management for the most part had no clue what was going on the proper procedures, or how to handle irate customers and often made a habit of insulting hardworking irreplaceable employees.
The hardest part of the job was watching a great place to work at turn into a complete nightmare and seeing coworkers leave at an unprecedented rate.
The most enjoyable part of the job was making a positive impact on consumers and helping consumers to grow their business while helping liquidity services grow their business as well.
Pros
learn a lot about online auctionplaces and marketplaces.
Cons
terrible culture

They have a great respectful group of employees, but management takes advantage of its associates.
Forklift Driver (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJune 19, 2018
You can be a great employee in this facility, but you are actually judged off your personality. They will give you a 5 day 10HR shift schedule and send you home early on that last day to take back the overtime. You will be forced to do 10hrs of work into an 8 hour shift. Sometimes management will cut off the Wi-Fi and send associates home. Workers have been there for multiple years and still haven't eclipsed $13.00 an hour yet.
Pros
Great employees
Cons
Management; Pay; No Loyalty With Its Employees

Great place but limited upward mobility
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  USAOctober 10, 2017
Liquidity Services is a great place to work. The pay is average to above average of the local market. The only downside is that there is very limited opportunity for advancement outside of the role you are brought in for.

Most managers are on the younger side and will be around for a long time. I have yet to see a managerial role open up while being employed here for that reason. While this provides great stability it places a ceiling young talent.
Pros
Pay, Benefits, Training
Cons
Little opportunity for advancement

Payroll Tax Accountant (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZMay 22, 2018
Since this was a temporary position at times it was difficult for permanent employees to understand that you were attempting to help them do their job. Time management was the biggest hurdle to overcome with W-2's and payroll reports that needed revising.
Pros
Free snacks
Cons
Long hours

Undisclosed (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCSeptember 3, 2018
Leadership is poisonous, untruthful, and doesn't care in the least about their employees. They're also completely out of touch with how things actually work. The CEO spends his time locked away in his office reading HBR articles, thinking this qualifies him for leadership.

Good Company, solid benefits, low pay...
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Cranbury, NJMarch 5, 2013
I drove a forklift (reach truck) and they paid about $1/hr lower than average going rate in the area. I was ok with it because the benefits and vacation days were pretty good considering most companies aren't offering any these days. The company has a good business model that makes you feel you're with a stable company. I don't really have too many negative things to say about the company itself; my issue was with the management team in the Cranbury, NJ location. Without saying too much, the amount of stress and headache they put their underpaid workers through was absolutely not worth the money. With a different management team and better pay I probably could've stayed for a long long time.
Pros
good benefits, good amount of time off.
Cons
low pay, very strict, very easy to get fired for minor transgressions
