Fast pace and long hours
Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Garner, NCJune 25, 2018
It was an ok place to work permanently but I was put on by a temporary agency as a part time worker making full time hours, my pay was too low for the amount of work that needed to be done (8.50/hourly) and I would work from 4am to whenever the route is done normally til 6pm or 8pm which restricted me from handling any business I needed to handle during the day.

It’s a stressful place to work.
Front End Driver (Current Employee) –  Fayetteville, NCJune 15, 2018
They add more stops to your route and we have to be off the clock by 3pm but yet want you to get every stop. The managers are not that bright they say one thing but do another also they fire you for petty stuff. They got cameras all over the trucks they say it’s for driver safety but it’s to spy on the drivers they gonna have a lot of drivers quit.

Easy job with low moral due to management
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Fairburn, GAMay 11, 2018
The job is a really laid back job and easy once you have mastered the systems, however, a lot of micromanaging, not enough employee support, low moral, no room for growth/advancement, pay doesn’t match some employees job duties (some representatives are doing 3 in 1 jobs but only getting paid for 1), hard to get time off and mandatory meetings that inconvenience you.
Pros
Easy job, lunches provided occassionally
Cons
Salary doesn’t match job duties, time off availability

This is a very busy place to work. There is very poor communication between product lines. The work load is decent but the management is very poor in the product lines.

Hard Work
Helper (Former Employee) –  New Castle, DE 19720February 12, 2018
This job is very hard work and very physical. Just don't get injured because you will have to get a lawyer involved to get back pay which will eventually result in your termination.
