A lot to learn from this place
Accounts and Billing Executive (Current Employee) –  Bensenville, ILMarch 21, 2019
It is a growing company, on which daily basis I learned alot. Midwest is an organization that treats its employees as a Family Member. Proud to be a part of Midwest Family

Hardworking Company but with No value for Hardwork
E-Commerce Analyst (Current Employee) –  Bensenville, ILMarch 7, 2019
The company teaches you a drive and passion for entrepreneurship and business mindset that can take you a long way, however, the treatment towards employees has a lot of scope for improvement. The company needs to have a convivial work environment, creative freedom which counters with fixed minded and deep-rooted managerial approach rather than the leadership approach. The company has grown significantly in terms of revenue over the past 5 years, however, the managing tactics still remain the same.
Pros
Free lunches on Friday, Entrepreneurial Spirit, and part of the bigger picture
Cons
No ability to think out of the box, and petty managerial approach.

Terrible Place
Packer (Former Employee) –  Bensenville, ILFebruary 27, 2019
If you want to be degraded as a human being then go right ahead to work here everyday you will be told you didn't do good enough and that you have to try extra hard the next day because of their lack of employees. I worked here almost 2 years and was disrespected by almost every new manager that walked into that place. upper management always abused their powers and the small people don't stand a chance even if you did nothing wrong you'll have to pay the consequences. you have to wait weeks for simple answers about pay raises that are never given on time but promised upon hire. I could go on and on about how bad the place is but if you work there you'll soon figured that out yourself.
Pros
Listening to music
Cons
Management, Everybody who runs the place

Expect to treated poorly and disrespected.
Aisle Stocker (Former Employee) –  Bensenville, ILJanuary 23, 2019
People with authority think they could talk to you however they want. They don't give raises and the managers don't know how to run that business. They lack in experience.

Working at midwest it alright. you get to listen to music while working. They make you pick at a quick rate while having a system in place of the fastest picker with the least amount of errors gets a gift card that they can use on the products in the warehouse.
Pros
listen to music
Cons
One long break, no paid lunch

Toxic environment
Manager (Former Employee) –  Bensenville, ILAugust 9, 2018
Ownership is involved! That should say alot. One day one owner will say green and then the other day the other owner will say black.

Very toxic environment. They manage you by looking into cameras and sending you text messages in your personal phone in which they do not pay!

Unsafe work environment as well. They undermine management ( then why hire managers)

Stay away unless ownership has decided to let management do there job.
Pros
Met some really great employees/people, sadly though they’re stuck in a toxic environment!
Cons
Everything

benifits
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Bensenville, ILJuly 8, 2018
I like the atmosphere and work environment,but the have very bad benefits! The do not pay holiday pay unless you are salary ,and only offer medical benefits,and also only offer unpaid vacation! The management is pretty good, and have rewards every month like employee of the month, and also give you free lunches on Fridays. The benefits are important to me. HR needs to replaced. They never answer their phones, email,or radios half the time and in my opinion,dont care about the employees as much as the care about themselves.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
no holiday pay or vacation pay
