Productive and Active Job
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Rocky Hill, CT – August 13, 2018
This job was a very active one. As an order filler (Material Handler), it required a lot of walking back and forth, using an rf unit to scan locations and pick required amounts of items and place in apron before dumping contents into a tote and moving to the next tote.
When I worked there, we went through periods of working a lot of overtime and not having much time to do anything else, and then times (especially at the end) where we barely had enough work to make it through an 8 hour shift. I enjoyed most of the team members, and the management was okay. But in the end the Rocky Hill location shut down. So while the company itself is usually considered stable, with pretty good advancement opportunities, I gave it a low score because of the location I worked in shutting down.
The location I worked was part of a union, and because of that we had great pay and benefits. But without a union I am not sure if they would be as generous.
Great pay and healthcare, provided with meals and fun little trips a few times a year
Periods of time with heavy workload, and then the warehouse shut down
