Operator (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – June 23, 2018
Company overall is good, but management focuses on numbers rather than people, especially plant manager, in greatly need of leadership, upper management needs to come down and ask for feedback from the people that actually work.
Worker (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 8, 2018
Turnover rate at production plants are sky high due to bad treatment of employees and horrible management decisions. Unfortunately many of the top ranks at this company act like they care about employees, but don't. Absolutely not a good workplace.
I worked for this company for almost 2 years I loved it at first but then New Management took over and treated me like I didn't know what I was doing and would not let me advance to higher positions because they had better things to do or to give the higher positions to their family members or other people of the same race as them before because they are racist against anyone not of Spanish descent
Some of the workers were really good people
( not spanish? than you do not progressed on to higher paying jobs within the company)
Pallett sorter (Former Employee) – Lewiston, ME – May 8, 2018
The managers don't tell you how they want anything done, the forklift drivers are driving a million miles an hour and actually killed a guy (hence why my stint was so brief). Nothing but repetitive motions, no team lifting on 80+lb palletts, no benefits, the pay was meager at best and everyone there treats you like an outsider no matter how long you have worked there.
No benefits, poor safety practices, too rushed and people have died here.
Plant Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 28, 2018
market leader, great leadership through out the organization, staffed with many highly professional engineers and keen sales staff. Dominates the market and develops new markets and products every 2 or 3 years.
There is good management with this company. There is a lot of turn over with this company. This might be due to it being a warehouse. But for it to be my only warehouse position, i can say it was an okay job.
Forklift operator/general labor (Former Employee) – Gas City, IN – March 15, 2018
Compared to other facilities, this was pretty terrible in terms of safety, as well as management. Having forklift operators forced by management to drive full speed in close proximity by other workers when unloading trailers. Management calling the shift lead liars because management refuses to believe that Wal-Mart dc ops managers prioritize their own moves before getting ours in. Days where you are literally standing around because no moves are in is fairly common.
Unsafe mindset in management, unrealistic expectations
Floorman (Current Employee) – Kenosha, WI – March 5, 2018
The company is heading towards bigger and better things. But the management is taking all the hardworking individuals and driving them out of the company due to incompetence and not allowing people to advance based on merit. The people higher are scared that they will lose their jobs to hard working people so they continue to give excuses as to why you cant continue to learn more. Or make it near impossible to move up.
benefits okay but nothing else especially teamwork
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Dinwiddie, VA – February 8, 2018
a typical day there was you would complete the tasked laid down for the day and they would keep pushing for more when that happens altitudes begins to flair and all kinds of problems starts to appear throughout the day.
I worked at this job for a year and it was by far the worst workplace i have ever had the displeasure of working at. The management doesn't care, the days are long and repetitive, and they don't really teach you anything. They like to keep their employees uninformed like sheep so the people in charge don't lose their positions. All and all, NEVER work here.
Site Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 22, 2018
Rehrig is a good place for someone who wants to advance in a company with out a collage degree. It is hard work for low pay at the bottom but if you are a good hard worker you can move up and it is good pay for management. If you don't live out of Pennsylvania you can make it to Site Manager but will not go beyond that. Being a family own company they like to keep the corporate management spots for people they know personally. As a Site Manager you will work 5 to7 days a week, 10 to 14 hour days depending on your site.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Seymour, IN – January 17, 2018
The Management team is horrible and they hire people and then just want to get them out of there does not make sense to me. Nothing is good enough they need more and more but do not want to pay the team to work it. then they want to bring in employees from other sites instead of giving the local team extra hours.
Safety Coordinator (Current Employee) – Petersburg, VA – November 13, 2017
The most enjoyable thing on my job is enter acting with the people. My typical day can be fast pace and I have to know how to mult-task. I am a part of management and I learned that you must always listen to all the facts before making a decision.
