Stay away from this screwed up outfit
collector (Former Employee) –  Addison, IlMarch 8, 2018
Managers are horrible. I felt like I was treated like a five year old child. Unrealistic goals and if you don't reach your goals you would be fired. This is an okay jobs if your a young person attempting to get some experience.
Pros
growing company
Cons
growing company that is crazy to work at

Packer (Former Employee) –  Addison, ILJanuary 14, 2018
The people there were the best, always nice and just great to be around. I liked the fast pace and the constant string of work that came my way. It was a place where you felt like you were a part of a family.

Not a great place for a hard worker
Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  Addison, ILOctober 24, 2017
Company has a goof-off culture and as long as you accomplish their meaningless metrics you will keep your low-paying job. The company probably started out lean and mean, but got bloated and stupid.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
Stupid Management

Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Griffin, GAOctober 21, 2017
Parts town closed down about 20 years ago. It was a fun place to work as a delivery driver. The atmosphere was laid back and relaxed in a small town where everyone knows everyone.

Great Place to Work
Distribution Associate (Former Employee) –  Addison, ILFebruary 22, 2017
Working for this company was great! They really took care of their employees all around. The management in the warehouse was very motivating and kept the great morale around the place. During breaks and lunch, you were able to play games in the game room, or work out in their very own workout room.
Pros
Fooseball, Ping Pong, and Pool tables in break room; work out room; turkeys for thanksgiving

Fun place to work that's all about culture!
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Addison, ILJune 15, 2015
A typical day at work would be communicating customer's via phone and email. Also, order entry setting up quotes, creating new accounts and maintaining existing ones.

I've learned various requirements needed such as the software used there.

Management is really great, fair decisions and they want to see their employees successful. Management is supportive throughout the company, and mangers have no problem helping team members (even team members from other departments).

Co-workers a great even better than management you will truly feel like you're part of a family there.

The hardest part of the job would probably some of the customers (as with any customer service positions) can be degrading, impatient, and condescending at times.

The most enjoyable part of the job would be the employee appreciation; which is through the roof! Somedays it honestly felt like I worked at Google.
Pros
Opportunities for lateral movement, family atmosphere, excellent management, quarterly bonuses, fun environment, employee appreciation
Cons
Not much room for advancement, favoritism is a tad bit heavy there, costly health benefits
