Morbid and Unfriendly warehouse.
General Laborer (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIJune 22, 2018
Responsibilities included sorting through donated electronic items to determine what could be sold and what was garbage. I was also tasked with cleaning my area. I commonly would use a pallet jack to move gay-lords full of organized donations. I commonly used a trash compactor to dispose of unwanted items and garbage.
The management at this job was confusing and unrealistic. I personally heard the head manager of the warehouse completely contradict himself twice. I received little training. I was consistently criticized for my job. Their quota was extremely tough to match and although they said they could go at a rate almost 50% faster than the people I was working with they never actually did any sorting to prove this claim.
Pros
Consistent hours, decent pay, Eeo.
Cons
Strict policy, unrealistic expectations, bad management, poor training.
