A place of diminishing returns

The culture is do more with less , yet make it sound positive,no room for advancement supervisory, or associate, management pertains no knowledge to the business they are responsible for overseeing, turnover rate is high, don't expect longevity. accountability depends on who you are liked or not liked
Pros
The place will likely soon be broken off and sold or go O.O.Business
Cons
Its sad it was once a good company and Carlyle & KKR ruined it

Very productive and fun place to work.
Label Room Attendant (Former Employee) –  Long Island, NYApril 18, 2018
I had a wonderful team I was working with. It felt like a family. Everyday you clocked in and was always greeted by everyone from security to your own team. We either ate lunch inside or everyone went outside. When came down to work everyone was focused and a team. We had our down moments but as adults we grouped up talked it over and worked it out and went right back to work.
Pros
Cook out events and special events for families.
Cons
Some days it was slow and dragging.

Procurement Manager (Current Employee) –  Bohemia, NYApril 18, 2018
I have worked here for over 10 years. There have been so many leasdership changes over the last few years, we are so top heavy and don't have the support in the departments to reach our numbers. We have gone through a massive outsourcing initiative and we are unstable.
Pros
Discounts on Vitamins, Telecommute option
Cons
Work, People, departments, lack of enthusiasm

The job itself is great, however the supervision ruins it.
Assistant Supervisor Shipping and Receiving (Current Employee) –  Hazleton, PAApril 11, 2018
The job is a good one. Its not hard and the people that work here are really decent for the most part.
however, in order to advance you have to be a YES man/woman and be in with the right people. Some of the supervisors are so clueless about there own departments that they cannot answer the most basic questions about the day to day operations that they are responsible for overseeing.
Those same supervisors pawn their work off on the assistant supervisors and leads then take the credit for the work being done. Its very frustrating and unprofessional.
If seeking a job without the desire to advance you would probably like this company. If you are looking to advance you better be ready to kiss some serious backside.
Pros
Extended lunch on Fridays.
Cons
Supervision

Horrible Work Environment STAY AWAY
E-Commerce Specialist (Former Employee) –  Ronkonkoma, NYApril 5, 2018
The managers micro manage every little thing. If you slouch in your chair they will call you into the office and write you up. Managers are clueless, don’t know how to keep employees happy. No advancement, horrendous pay for the amount you’re asked to deal with. You start at sales, if you do good they teach you customer support, then e-support. You don’t get compensated for doing extra work even though old employees just do sales and get same pay.
Pros
None
Cons
Work weekends, low pay

Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXApril 3, 2018
All around wonderful place of business and to work. It's very relaxed and yet still very business oriented. Everyone is very kind and concerned, the key is their actually working for you to make your experience a wonderful one with their company. It's the most wonderful job I've ever had. I left only because I missed my family back home.

communication is low but benefits makes some people stay
Lead (Current Employee) –  Bohemia, NYMarch 28, 2018
This job itself is simple but the priority is the quantity over the actual quality. Morale is so low that 0% is being nice. So many changes have occurred that it has caused everyone who treated each other as family to now "every man for themselves" attitude. The associates working here for many years are unappreciated and there are positions that are under paid with some departments under staffed with open positions for more then a year. The company benefits is the main reason many are still here for so long since 401K is offered and paid time off ( sick, vacation,personal) of course everything has their limits but it is offered. Also health insurance is available. For the benefits many are still here because it is hard to find a job that offers these options but many associates come to work their hours required and punch out on the dot unlike before the time clock was never a finish line that everyone would race to at the end of their shift.
Pros
401K, Paid time off, Health Insurance
Cons
no communications, too much responsibility for little pay
