Physically Taxing, be prepared to sweat a lot.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – January 29, 2019
Do not work in Machine Ops. They will abuse you for all you are worth. Working weekends is brutal, depending on what area you are working in you may not get break from standing and lifting couches, dressers, TV's, mattresses for 6+ hours. It's a go go culture, never stops. Work is terrible due to the new JDA software they installed which tracks you every minute monitoring how much product you are scanning, what location you scanned it to, and how long it took you to do it. One of the most stressful jobs I've ever had, dreaded going to work. Managers are hit or miss. Walking and standing on cement all day will give you knee problems. They never allow windows or doors to let in fresh air in the warehouse for fear of someone stealing product, therefore fumes from the touch up crew spraying chemicals on furniture can be toxic to breathe. There is an over arching feeling of maniacal control coming from upper management. Nice people do not last here.
Fun employees, comraderie due to disdain for management, pay, benefits.
Physically demanding, bad home/work balance, poor management.
