Cool Place
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  West Chester, OHAugust 27, 2017
Always go into work and see if needed in Outbound, if needed then I go pick otherwise I go to Inbound and process Returns. Management cant seem to make up there minds sometimes on where they want people to go. Rarely do they send you home early.
Pros
Offer 4 lunches per month. Occasionally offer gift cards. Holidays do raffles for gifts.

For college students/part-timers
Outbound Associate (Current Employee) –  West Chester, OHMay 29, 2017
Pay is not something to live off. Paid lunched that are only suited for some. No cell policy. Many do not reach their uph goals. A hand full of employees end up doing multiple jobs.
Pros
gym membership
Cons
poor pay, complacent workers, no shift differential.

Great Company
Customer Service Rep (Current Employee) –  Campbell, CASeptember 15, 2016
It's a great company however there's not really any opportunity for advancement or raises in customer service. It's really convenient being able to work from home.

Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  West Chester, OHNovember 11, 2015
Very straightforward job with great management. Company does provide a lot of extra benefits like free gym membership and frequently provide lunch for associates. Overall a very good company to work for but they have trouble keeping quality workers because neighboring warehouses offer higher pay for the same work.
Pros
management is flexible with school schedules, frequently provide lunches, easy work
Cons
can be physically demanding

Fair place to work. Typical warehouse duties and expectations.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Westchester, OHSeptember 15, 2015
I work part time for additional income. Fair place to work. compensation is average for what you do. They provide free meals occasionally. Would recommend as a part time or beginning job. Does require a lot of walking so you must be able to stay on your feet for long periods of time.

Fun and laid back
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  West Chester, OHFebruary 27, 2015
10 hour days full of lots of walking. The benefits are fantastic and the work environment is ideal. All of the employees and management staff are super friendly and you immediately become part of the family. The rewards for all the hard work you put into the job are very considerate. Lunch is catered up to 4 times a month. A "Price Is Right" wheel is spun for prizes such as gift cards to local businesses. The hardest part of the job is definitely being on your feet all day and only getting a 30 minute lunch. I really enjoy all the positions available at the warehouse. A great place to work.
Pros
Free lunch, prizes, great environment, decent pay
Cons
No music, hard on your feet

Fun Job, Low pay
Customization Employee (Current Employee) –  West Chester, OHJanuary 21, 2015
Job is fun to work for, you get free catered lunch a few times a month. Job also hosts a lot of Fun events, Christmas and Halloween parties, Marathon events. Co workers are friendly, but work Hours can get long and consume your daily schedule, pay is very low and hardly enough to make a living off of. Great for a 2nd job for extra cash, terrible for a main and only job.
Pros
Free lunches, set schedules, good healthcare benifits
Cons
Low pay, Long hours

decent workload
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  West Chester, OHDecember 30, 2014
They will hire you seasonal and then you could be offered part time, after 6 months you could be offered full time. If you are late or miss because of the weather they will point you. For example a bad snow storm or ice storm. On a good note the Christmas party had been great and you receive a lot of gifts.
Pros
coworkers
Cons
hiring process

Company cares about its employees
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAApril 17, 2014
A typical day entitles listening and dissecting what customers need; problems with their orders; replacing orders, answering questions that they may have

What I've learned is to be patient with the wide range of customer issues, in addition to being patient with myself in handing these responses.

Management is flexible and courteous. Willing to work with employees. The co-workers get along with each other, despite the cubicle environment.

Swimoutlet is a great company to work for, with a start-up like atmosphere. The CEO is never far from the lowest tiered employees, and communication between supervisors and employees are open.
Pros
Free lunches, Supervisors work well with employees

Needs better pay and a workforce that will take responsibility.
Marketing Event Coordinator (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJanuary 6, 2014
I was only a contract worker there but moral seemed low. Everyone was overworked. Most department heads were limited by budget and had difficulty keeping employees happy. Website discounts were good.
Pros
Good opportunity to advance your resume
Cons
Low relative pay, lots of work for one person.

Fast pace work environment
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  West Chester, OHApril 2, 2013
A typical day here consisted of getting maerials ready to perform duties required for the job, such as a R/F scanner and an IPod to scan and review orders. Everyday the supervisor on the shift will get everyone together to go over how much work was to be expected for the day and to talk about things going on within the company. My co-workers were pretty easy to get along with. I liked the management here because they were willing to work around my school schedule.

Shady Bus. Practices - Terrible Management
Picker (Former Employee) –  Newark, CAFebruary 5, 2013
Free lunches for warehouse employees was about the only good thing... if you like under-cooked food. The "Executive Chef" is the CEO's mom. A nice lady but not a a chef, also not sure if she has any kind of safe serv certification.

Sexual harassment claims were not addressed seriously. Warehouse had mold and rodents. Most people working there were kids (just out of high school). Laid back on attire but overall management didn't care about what was happening. "Supervisors" are arbitrarily promoted.
The warehouse has since moved to Ohio so I can't speak to what they may have changed or not.
Pros
lax dress code
Cons
no real safety training or procedures, management has no interest in improving the employees, the "ceo" is inexperienced and will bring the company down.
