Screen Printer (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 19, 2018
Poor pay for the work. Very long hours, and no recognition for hard work. They base pay on seniority. Warehouse working environment so takes a toll on body. Management is bad at communicating but other coworker are really down to earth and its a working space where you can listen to music and work independently.
this is a job where you have to work 45-55hrs to make ends meet.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 13, 2019
I would say working at Rush is fine if you're only planning to stay temporarily. Being in production requires you to stand all day with a lot of physical labor involved. If you're lucky enough to not be placed in the warehouse, you'll at least be in an air conditioned environment. Pay starts low and advancement is incredibly slow and almost insulting considering the fast paced environment forces you become proficient at your position quickly. Overtime is required if you want a decent paycheck at the end of the week.
Instead of raising everyone's hourly rates, management will throw occasional pizza parties and give speeches every few months during meetings about how they're going to improve everyone's experience, while not changing much at all. Even speaking personally with a manager doesn't change much. They'll give you a polite response, but nothing will get done. HR is pretty much useless as well so if anyone is racist or sexist towards you, good luck.
Biggest perks are the healthcare and PTO. Healthcare is affordable and they're lenient when you need to take a day off for whatever reason; however, they don't provide holiday pay or have designated sick days.
Tl;dr, if you need a temp job or don't mind working 40-50 hours a week, it's fine. Otherwise, just look somewhere else.
Casual environment, food market, healthcare
Long hours, low pay, unresponsive management, rude coworkers
