Worst place to work
Selector (Former Employee) –  Plant City, FLNovember 5, 2019
It’s honestly the worst place I have ever worked. Management has no idea what they are doing and constantly lie to the employees. All they care about is bulk and if it screws the other departments they don’t care. Unless you really need a job and have no other choice I’d stay away.

Great company to drive for
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) –  West Sacramento, CAOctober 25, 2019
Very easy going company. Management is awesome. Most drivers are cool. Still got some lazy driver's who thinks they can't be touched for being there so long. Those are the ones who doesn't clean out their trailer's. Down side you have to jump into a different truck almost everyday. If you work hard, they'll switch your route almost every week. If your lazy you get your own route and nobody touches it. Other than that everyone I've met there was cool.

if your a real animal lover then this is the job for you
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Clyde, OHOctober 6, 2019
there's a few things I would change the company don't have accounts with hotels on the routs, I'd would have freightliner Columbia's it has a small sleeper birth because not to many hotels have room for a 53',48', 36' foot long trailer #2) back up camera's on the on the back of the trailer to make sure there no blind spots. #3)have specialized trailer built for the height of the road restrictions just in mind for going to Pennsylvania state since the state has low over pass's, and low telephone wires.

Long hours, open-ended work schedule
2nd Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Spartanburg, SCOctober 2, 2019
If you're looking for lots of OT, the shipping department is the place for you. New floor picking caused a company wide freeze on the bonus/picking incentive program for pickers so don't buy into the incentives portion. Overall lack of communication. No HR rep on site, so you're stuck waiting for answers to questions that affect your livelihood. Keep tabs of your hours, lots of payroll issues as well.

A great environment to work
Senior Driver (Current Employee) –  Arlington, TXSeptember 29, 2019
This company will keep you in a competitive way in regards to equal salary among other companies in the same business. So I love this company and I appreciate the opportunity that was given to me.

Just ok...
Manager (Former Employee) –  Plant City, FLSeptember 27, 2019
Good stop over if you are needing a job or experience, don't see a long term future for people. Even the folks in upper management seem like they are just waiting for the next position.

Paid the bills
Chose not to say (Former Employee) –  Easton, PAAugust 23, 2019
When companies are always hiring it's not for nothing. It was a paycheck but don't plan on being there more than a couple years. You get hired, you start making plans for your next move right away. Don't let yourself get used to it.

If you like poor management, apply
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) –  Easton, PAAugust 20, 2019
Worked there for a few months, seen management change about 3 times. All about numbers and not the workers. Their work incentive pay is trash. For 15hr you can find better.
Pros
Co workers are the only plus
Cons
Poor management and working conditions

Poor management
Picker/Packer/Shipper (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORAugust 14, 2019
Management has severe lack of communication skills, they change vital operations without informing any of the workers and then they get upset when the workers are not following the "new protocol". They would rather waste an hour of your time in pointless "town hall" meetings where you are encouraged to remain silent, instead of letting you go do your job. Then you get to hear the manager complain about us "using too much overtime".

Every warehouse is very similar in practice, however, each warehouse has different processes which they fail to train their employees on properly. This leads to everyone making mistakes that hold up the operation.

Every day you will be reminded to work harder because everyone's numbers "can be higher" even if you are running yourself into the ground.

Also don't leave your soda/energy drink in the fridge because someone keeps stealing them.
Pros
Clean water dispenser and microwaves in break room.
Cons
Management doesn't actually have experience running a warehouse.

Typical Day at Phillips
Fresh Production Associate (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAMay 23, 2019
Pros:
- Fun people to work with
- The supervisor helps out around the Warehouse

Cons:
- Management isn't so great, they'll tell you something and it never happens or is nonbeneficial to the warehouse.
- The Supervisor spreads his political views on everyone and is a racist.
- The work can be overwhelming for whoever picks in the Fresh and Frozen department - only two employees over there.
- Favoritism exists in this place. There are some employees that get no points for being late or they get points more than their 90 days allows and stay employed.
- It gets quite disorganized. Especially in the overflow trailers. The trailers get so full that when you go to replenish you have to climb over pallets or walk on top of them to get to the product.
-The shift isn't that desirable.
-Turnover rate is high.
-Things brought up to management are hardly acknowledged.
- When people are let go or quit, the remaining employees have to pick up the slack - usually lasting months at a time. Especially in Fresh and Frozen.
- Other facilities get bonuses or compensation for the employee's pick rate - Cedar Rapids location does not. If you pick super fast and get done early, you actually end up losing money.
- You never get acknowledged for hard work. I was told that hard work brings more work - apparently, no incentive comes with that.
- If you witness safety hazards and submit safety observation cards, they aren't acknowledged for months at a time.

Just OK
Accounting (Current Employee) –  Easton, PAApril 23, 2019
The office is pretty low key, casual attire and executive team is not based here. Laptops make it easy to work from home if your manager allows it. Not a bad place to work overall. Lacking in PTO, Holiday, and benefits in general.

Tipical day at work
Sanitation Worker (Former Employee) –  Easton, PAApril 16, 2019
I worked in sanitation area, this job required two persons and I was the only one. All task has to be done by myself, it's a hard job which required a lot of efforts. I had to do finish the second shift task too.

Poorly managed lack of communication
Former Driver (Former Employee) –  Taunton, MAApril 16, 2019
Traffic manager in Taunton cares more about his bonus then the Drivers. Always pushing for more work out of the drivers. Your often working against the clock. New rules constantly. Trailers loaded terribly.
I highly dont recommend working here as a driver.
Pros
Co-drivers
Cons
Traffic Manager, Loading of the trailers, Constant change of rules

backstock picker
Back stock cherry picker (Current Employee) –  Easton, PAApril 1, 2019
was one of the most stressful jobs I ever encounter, you seriously have no life and is 12 hours every night. To improve with the company you have to either kiss feet or kiss feet. Hard work is not good enough over there.
