Pre-loader (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZDecember 10, 2017
Excellent co-workers, with a huge range of diversity and always willing to help each other out. Management is overall pretty good with one or two exceptions. Keep track of your own hours and check the pay stub every week.
Pros
work enviornment
Cons
short breaks

Productive but cold in the winters
Loader (Former Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILDecember 10, 2017
The job wasn't hard, it was just a workout. You may lose weight. The coworkers were friendly, as well as the supervisors. I worked the sunrise shift (4am-9am). It was easy to still have a life after you get off.

Tiring and exhausting but the healthcare is great
Loader (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNDecember 8, 2017
Typical day includes inhaling a lot of dust and dirt. Heavy lifting and millions of packages. You get to learn that things get thrown very often. Great workout with great benefits

Great Job
Loader (Former Employee) –  Brownwood, TXNovember 27, 2017
If you are anywhere but Brownwood, Texas, even the part-time loading positions are worthwhile. You will get 30 hours in most places. In Brownwood, the place is so small that there is not enough work to work part-timers more than 15 hours a week who are low on the seniority list. That is the only con. The work is hard, but they pay well by the hour, and the insurance is second to absolutely no one! It is free as well, so it really offsets the low hours. Even part-timers get a week vacation after they have been there a year. They have a pension for full and part-time employees, and a 401k available. If you make it to a full time driver, they top out at $32/hour or so, and often work some overtime, making for massive earning potential.

Good Job
Pre-loader (Former Employee) –  Laredo, TXNovember 17, 2017
It was a very intense and fast paced job. When one is barely starting off there quitting will seem like such a great option but just get through the first week and it will all be worth it.

Not a commfortable place to work.
Loader, Bulkliner & Bulkline Driver (Former Employee) –  Hodgkins, ILNovember 15, 2017
Very unprofessional regarding the way they treat their employees. A lot of favouritism to certain individuals that don't work as hard as others, but if an employee who gives 100% , it goes unnoticed. The way team leaders and management speak to employees, is absolutely disgusting. Lack of communication between management and employees. Lack of care for their employees.

very physical
package loader (Former Employee) –  Billings, MTNovember 6, 2017

Pros
don't need to go to the gym afterwards
Cons
temperature

Pre-loader (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, ILNovember 1, 2017
very early hours and fast paced labor await you in the pre-loading crew. but the job does have a strong union with great benefits. there are normally other shifts later in the day but at a pay cut.

Really good company to work for when i was there years ago
Pre loader (Former Employee) –  Stafford, TXOctober 31, 2017
I was there in 1996 to 1999 so I am speaking about the past. They had the best benefit package and the hours that you worked were unlimited. The Mgmt. team allowed you to do your job with minimal interference.

Extremely tiring.
Loader (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKOctober 30, 2017
Super fast paced. You have to be strong to lift most packages. I would pass out as soon as I got home just from how tired I was after each shift. It was a decent job though.

Early Morning Job

Loader (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 29, 2017
I worked the sunrise shift 3am to 8am you start by loading packages up to 50 lbs onto the trucks nonstop that you pull from your color coded ben if you get bulk packages you don't load them and someone else gets them and place them in a different truck.
