Great pay and benefits…but everything else…

Indeed Featured review

What they don’t tell you when you start is that you’ll be working 6 days 10-12 hours a day after your probationary term. Get ready to have no life working at this job. One thing nobody complains about though is the pay.

You won’t have energy for anything else but work

Physical work, you won’t have energy for anything else besides working and sleeping. Off days you’ll just be recovering from the work week . Great money if you’re looking to make lots of cash

They say they are a family, but they aren’t really

Went in loving the job and co workers. Decent pay, union position, small warehouse so it wasn’t as crazy as larger warehouse jobs. Had a one on one with management every week to go over performance and was advised on what needed improvement during training and as the weeks went by, was told I was basically killing it. Then I walk in one day, (I was on time every day during my 2 or so months of employment so getting let go before probation wasn’t due to attendance), and was informed that they were letting me go, due to “performance”. I asked how, when they’ve been telling me my performance has been awesome and he couldn’t give me an answer. Found out when I went outside from the MB veterans, that they let a bunch of other guys go as well.Here’s the thing. Don’t pretend like your company is like a family, family don’t treat family like a number. Don’t force warehouse management to be the bad guy playing this game just so you can keep your bonuses high, while the warehouse workers get a lousy 25 cents extra to work in a freezer for 10 hours. What’s sad, is that I actually liked this job until I was rudely awakened when I was let go because of their lie. MB, don’t hire a bunch of workers over and over with no intention of keeping anyone to avoid paying raises and paying the hiring bonuses. Just hire for temporary workers instead and inform them that it’s only for 2 months so you don’t have to pay the hiring bonus, the raise, or get them uniforms. (No wonder our uniforms never came “due to back order”). They also want you to keep building pallets when it’s not safe to do so. - 


Free McDonald’s drinks in the break room, weekly pay, hiring bonus, unionized


weak job security, shift ends when work finished with no pay

Ok Job.

Physically demanding job and will probably just want to go home to eat, sleep and go back to work the next day. I wouldn't recommend a long commute being how tiring the job is. The pay wasn't too great either.

Not for new hires

From the first moment I stepped into the parking lot there is a sense of entitlement and a sense of being disliked from the older drivers that have been there for years even decades as most of them are senior citizens. The issue is hours are not guaranteed and hours are handed out on a seniority basis. Which in this economy no one can afford to wait by the phone hoping for a call to come in. It’s a union facility and yet there is favoritism between management and some drivers. The union isn’t all that helpful either as it seems it’s only there for the older senior drivers and not the new comers. The moment you stop being a yes man and start saying no all of a sudden management starts to dislike you. Besides that if you manage to get hours by some chance you’ll be making money. This is a great company but not for new people or new hires.

Everything good until pda failed and it's your fault.

I was doing super good until ELD failed logged me out and they put it on me, that's unlikely to happen the manager said. I got fired over their equipment failure. Good pay but no job security. Warehouse do a lousy job loading the trucks you have to pick up a lot of fallen mercharndise. Very unproffesional people at the warehouse and at the stores.


Good pay


Everything else

Extra board sucks

This is a great place to work, however being on the extra board sucks!! When you’re on the extra board you’re basically the companies b!?$& you have to got to the worst stores that have the worst delivery process!! But once you get your own bid life gets so much better! If you can stick it out!! The warehouse however needs training on how to load and wrap pallets


Free food every so often, pay is amazing, management and dispatch cares


No work life balance

Place is a joke

Unorganized and hardly professional these people rope you in with the whole "we are family" talk but when it comes down to it they will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat and then bury the bus


Great pay

Great pay but…

Demanding on the body suggest this job for fit or younger people. No acknowledgment of sick days or emergency situations, so basically if you or someone close were to get sick they’re not willing to work with you

The job is not hard at all. The union is drama. The work is slow very hard to get extra work if you are not top senority or if the union guys dont like you. Management scared of union guys .

Unprofessional HR-Good Company

Martin Brower is a great company to work for. You have the opportunity to work for the other Sister companies like premium distributors Coca-Cola or you can work for Reyes. The HR department is not the best, they seem to be out of touch with the employees lots of favoritism And nothing is confidential. After realizing this I did applied to one of the sister companies and saw the difference. I’m so happy now never will I go back to that location




6 days working, No recognition, No positivity

The warehouse is like highschool. And managment is useless.

so you go in to work if your new and get stuck doing 10hr shifts and everyone telling you to go faster. (including management) and everyone in the warehouse is subject to 12 hrs work aday.(after 3 Months if new) unless you want to get fired! if you have no life and can survive on 6 days aweek in the warehouse being told to go faster and a highschool setting then by all means. please work there. if you have standards well good luck some place eles.


money is good, benifits

Hamster Wheel

Employees at every level spin their wheels due to poor people planning, low investment in operational tools to make their jobs easier, and a crippling lean workforce. Senior leaders have been there too long and still lead operations like it's the 1980s. Growth opportunities are more common if you are a certain color or gender - facts not opinions.

A company that doesn't care about their employees

A workplace that doesn't care about your health and safety. They want you to be at work every single day even when you're sick. They have an attendance policy that they don't follow at all, and they wait until you're on the edge of termination to try to talk to you about it. They also have a sick and covid policy that says if you're feeling sick in any kind of way do not come to work but they punish you for listening to their rules and not coming to work. They main thing to say is the pay is good and it's a "good" job but when you start to take care of your health it's not very good then.


The coworkers are good


short breaks to work 6, 10 hour days

Good paying job, bad workplace environment

They pay you a very livable wage, but you will be worked harder than you should ever have to work. Mandatory overtime is a weekly event, sometimes being 58-60 hour work weeks. You are constantly being timed for your work and your breaks. You are tracked for every little thing that happens at the place and they try to pass it off so you can get Paid For Performance, but you will never reach that.Management and leadership is a joke. They sit in the office and pretend like they care, but all they really do is over-assign tasks to you and then complain when the work isn’t completed.Work-life balance is basically nonexistent. You are either sleeping or working.The workplace culture is very toxic. You will be hard pressed to find a person working there that isn’t a rude and downright nasty person, including management and leads.


Weekly pay, livable wages


2 15 minute breaks only, Toxic workers, Bad Management
