Central Warehouse was awesome!!
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Brookpark, OH – October 16, 2018
This is going back quite a few years, as I am 51 now, and we are talking about when I was in my 20s. I am sure a lot of people reading this review were not even born yet. I worked at Central Warehouse from 91-97. Left for a sales job for a large computer company. Working at Central Warehouse was great! Made a lot of friends there, some who I am still in contact with today. There was some heavy lifting (cases of bleach, cases of Tide) etc... For a younger person it was a great job. Sadly, I am not as physically fit as I once was and it would be a lot harder today. Summer time got extremely hot in there, and you would sweat pretty hard. I worked the graveyard shift, pulling whatever the stores would order. They would play music (or the Indians games during the playoff years of the mid-late 90s) over the PA speakers to make the time pass faster. Never knew what time we were getting out, as during the slow times of the year (not very often) we would clean the warehouse when the stores were pulled, and on the busy times we could stay as much as 2 hours after, and 1st shift would eventually take over. Overtime was mandatory. Benefits were GREAT!! People and management were too!!! Marc Glassman served hamburgers at a Christmas Party! He is a great person. I have kept in touch with the 3rd shift supervisors over the years, and he (and a bunch of others are STILL THERE!) I have since gotten my CDL since I left, and I am seriously considering going back as a driver. Great company to work for, and I actually have to admit, I regret leaving.
People, Management, Discounts, fun place to work
None really, but if I had to nitpick, I would say the forced overtime. Do not know if that is still the case today.
