Climate controlled and clean. You get an hour (unpaid) for lunch. No ridiculous amount of lifting. Management is responsive. There is no room to grow. Once you hit the glass ceiling you have to go elsewhere for growth.
Clerical (Former Employee) – Olathe, KS – May 5, 2018
I enjoyed the coworkers and the job itself . The downfall was lack of communication between management and supervisors with their direct department. Instructions were given by one and then changed by the other manager. There is also poor communication between departments. The CEO seems nice but doesn't seem to know what's really going on within the company. There is not much room to grow within the company and promotions don't seem to be given to people who work the hardest and pick up the slack for other lazy employees. The promotions are given more on a favoritism level , not on hard work and job performance.
Poor management and poor equal opportunity fir advancement
Distribution Center Manager (Former Employee) – Mira Loma, CA – February 1, 2018
The company is good but middle management really needs to lead by example and support its staff. The company promotes employee involvement and engagement but only applies to hourly employees and not to supervisors or middle management.
Accounting (Former Employee) – Olathe, KS – January 16, 2018
There is a reason TVH is always hiring. Their management is a joke which keeps their employees constantly frustrated and overworked. It's one thing to work a ton of overtime because there is a lot of work to do and another thing to work a ton of overtime due to drama or a lack of communication and organization between departments. I had numerous managers, in fact I would report to sometimes 3 different people depending on what portion of my job I was referring to. Managers there don't just contradict each other, they also contradict themselves. Employees are typically running around like chickens with their heads cut off, arguing about how to do things because they are all told different instructions for procedures by different supervisors. There is so much tension in that building, you can cut it with a knife.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – January 2, 2018
Management sometimes showed favoritism but if you did what you were supposed to do you had nothing to worry about. I was usually on the beneficial side of favortism so I didn't quit because of it. I dont believe in injustice so I often told management of my disgust with blatent favoritism and to a certain extent they did improve.
Hour lunch, company corn hole tournament, average work loaf
Stronger employees are often pushed to exhaustion to pick up the slack of underachievers
Inside Domestic Sales Support (Former Employee) – Grayslake, IL – September 23, 2017
Working at TVH overall was good. Some people who work there complain a lot. But that's not fault of the company. They have lots of initiatives for the employees' well being. I had the understanding that TVH genuinely does care about the employees which is awesome. The culture depends on which location you are at. (I worked in Grayslake.) generally people are nice and resourceful if you have a question. Big part of the staff has been with the company for several years (some even decades) which one could view as a good or a bad thing. Overall I would recommend TVH as a good place to work. I miss several aspects of my previous role there.
Steady hours/schedule. Consistent routine
At times there can be improper distribution of responsibility.
confidential (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – September 14, 2017
no room for growth. great floor manager but upper levels of management have no idea what goes on. upper levels of management which are not at the waehouse dictate what perceptions they want to believe or not.
free lunch, pro employee
too much drama and gossip. employees do what they want.
Order Puller (Former Employee) – Shreveport, LA – August 2, 2017
This place would be ideal place for person looking for steady income but management which includes the main supervisor along with his assistant is horrible. I think if they was to replace the both of them, the place would be in better shape. I mentioned the income is steady but with them competing with other jobs in the area in terms of pay, they're behind. Last but not least they need to screen the folks they hire. Seem to hire too many lazy folks that just come to work to collect a check. If you want put up with that stuff, then take the job but my advice would be to look around for other opportunities.
Shipping Department Associate (Former Employee) – Olathe, KS – July 29, 2017
I wouldn't recommend working here at all. Management in the warehouse doesn't care about their employees and will push you as far as they can without even an encouraging word. You will regularly if not daily work overtime and if you don't volunteer to work Saturdays you're seen as less of a quality employee. The culture in the warehouse is a lot like your typical high school. Rumors spread around really quickly and the level of respect shown among fellow employees is poor at best.
SR Graphic Designer - Web Designer (Former Employee) – Olathe, KS – June 13, 2017
The Company as a whole has lots of resources to help you do your job better. In a lot of departments, they have management that does not deserve to be in their positions because of the lack of knowledge and lack of credentials and they are there just because their buddy put them there, therefore, it makes the work of other professional hard and sometimes even impossible to do.
If you are looking to work in a company that has great benefits this is it but do expect a lot of bumps along the way.
I took and edited photos of the merchandise to upload onto the companies website. I learned a lot about photoshop and teamwork. Management was wonderful, and constantly offering advice. The people there were very welcoming and inviting. The hardest part of the job was having to occasionally lift heavy parts in order to take photos of them, the most enjoyable part of the job was the people.
Fruit Day on Wednesday, occasional gifts, lovely co-workers.
I did not receive a lot of training, but I was also an intern.
Order Puller (Former Employee) – Mira Loma, CA – March 15, 2017
Very fast paced environment. Always had something to do. Expect to work overtime. People you work with are great. No room to grow. Management was favorable to certain employees. Also, wasn't flexible and had no people skills.
Many dedicated long-term employees are leaving due to the fact that management is starting out new hires at a higher pay scale than the employees that have been loyal for years. It has been a real slap in the face. Qualified individuals are passed up for advancements in the company due to middle management playing favorites.
TIS (Technical Information Services (Former Employee) – Grayslake, IL – January 28, 2016
Im not sure where these reviews on here are from, but this company needs definite improvement. -Training consists of sitting and watching someone work for a week blasting through screens, and asking at the end "do you get it?" no. nobody does. -There are over 50 programs to use, and the provided training "manual" is outdated, and missing valuable information. -You are a robot, doing the same work, with the same people, in the same spot, only to receive the same recognition (none) regardless of how well/terrible you did.
ProTip: dont apply for a job that is usually always hiring, that means people are consistently quitting or being fired, or very rarely the company is expanding.
Employee appreciation through executives, Fruit day, paid holidays
training, repetitive work environment, management action for the greater good.
