Definitely Not a Career Here
Shift Lead (Former Employee) –  Galesburg, MIJuly 20, 2018
Management was OK. Hardest part of the job was sorting pallets for ten hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was going home. Workplace culture was OK. Many of the new hires quit after just a few days when they realized just how difficult working here was. Pay was not enough for the very difficult work. Highest turnover rate I have ever seen.
Pros
Going Home. Getting a meager paycheck
Cons
Lack of pay. Constant new hires needing training.

If you like working by yourself and you like a challenge this is a job for you
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Waterlooo,IAApril 9, 2018
For good temporary job, it's all right... The job does require some physical labor, but also could use people that show up to work and do their job correctly
Pros
It's a good starter job for any teenager or college student
Cons
Make sure the manager goes all over all the paperwork and tells you about the job correctly

Ok place to work
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Van Buren, OHMarch 28, 2018
if you're a sorter don't expect to stop sorting until break, 2 45 min breaks, communication helps, don't come if you're just going to bs the job you'll get fired quickly
Pros
Decent breaks, you get paid for more time than you work, home early if not busy season
Cons
Consistent work always to be done

Good Place to work
Il - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Belvidere, ILMarch 22, 2018
Though you have hourly deadlines to meet and call to make to make and receive, the atmosphere is relaxing and enjoyable. You need to make sure you have the deadlines met or you will get stressed but as long as you stay on top of your work you should have ab easy day. Everyone I worked with was always nice and easy to talk to.
Pros
Always learning, great office staff, hours
Cons
vacation time, pay, when you are off the lead does not pick up the slack as she should46

Terrible mangement and pays not worth it.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMarch 11, 2018
Worked here 3 weeks gave it a chance worst decision i made shift lead cant decide if he wants you to go fast and get a lot done but mess up a little, or take your time get it right but take too long. Stupid work for dummies and felons. Easy to do but they like to make it more difficult than they need to be. And for how much work and stress your going through your only getting 428 a week.
Pros
If your decent on a fork-lift not that hard
Cons
Mangement, stress, pay is not good enough, personal issues that have nothing to do with work.

Job has a fast paced workflow, which helps the day go buy quickly. It is a little hard on the back, but once you get use to it, it isn't a problem. Good Management.

Below average
Manager (Former Employee) –  Belvidere, ILNovember 3, 2017
Below average place to work. Company recently transferred ownership, New ownership has failed to uphold its vision. Jobs have been cut. Communication with new leadership was below average.

Great place to work
On-Site Manager (Current Employee) –  OregonAugust 26, 2017
Great place to work if you are willing to work. A lot of people that where hired and fired had no work ethic at all and were a bunch of big babies that need to learn to work.
Pros
Great place to work
Cons
Hard to find people that are willing to work
