Productive work place the final product was amazing
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – 18 January 2017
An average day greeted guest, make sure conference room all equipment for visitors. Answered the incoming calls. Copied blue prints for profjectr. Ran weekly/daily reports. Keep employees time. I learned to use various spread sheets to escalate daily work activities. Kept management abreast of currant activities of the office. I loved working with the employees as to they were not accustomed to having an open door policy to the front office. The hardest part of the job was printing labels for projects as to the print machine was not user friendly.
Inventory Associate (Former Employee) – Chester, VA – 27 November 2016
Not every job is going to be completely blissful, some more than others I suppose. However, this was one of the worst companies I have ever worked for in my experience as a forklift driver. Very poorly maintained equipment almost cost me my life here. Constantly leaking hydraulic fluid and almost never performed routine maintenance on any of their overhead cranes or shop equipment. Working here almost felt like being in the stone ages. Outdated assembly procedures and poorly trained employees only made for an unsafe environment. Management has ZERO respect for anyone or each other for that matter. Employees I've worked with seem to hate their jobs. No one communicates and everyone here just has such a negative attitude. Tractor trailer drivers have hit other parked cars in the parking lot because the space is so tight and clustered all around. I was very dissatisfied with the amount of respect the supervisors had for their groups. Everyday someone is finger pointing instead of giving someone a chance to correct a mistake. I had no choice but to quit and since have found a much better job that requires much less sweat, stress, and headache.
any check beats no check, benefits are generous because you'll need them to work here
Depressing, racism, bigotry, negative employees, lack of respect for anyone, poorly maintained equipment, dollars not well spent
Eastern Region Purchasing Agen (Former Employee) – Chester, VA – 20 November 2016
I loved my job with this company. Never a dull moment. The only reason I am not employed with this company now is because I relocated. They are growing and sure there are growing pains but they are making strides to make it a painless as possible. All things considered, it is a good position to be in with a company.
WAREHOUSE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Chester, VA – 21 September 2016
I could not be any more disgusted with the management. They hold you back just so that they don't look bad. The pay is not worth the headache. Confusion and lack of communication between all departments. The blame always falls back on the Hard working employees that can only follow what the mangers tell you to do. I had to quit, NOT because of how much work but because no matter how hard one works ( not just myself) they want you to continue picking up the slack of the management. They need to clean up shop
Line Lead Foreman (Current Employee) – Chester, VA – 21 September 2016
I like the company, a lot of changes has happened over the past few weeks. It was to a point a lot of people worried about there jobs. Rumors of a lot of people was getting fired or laid off. Difficult to work in that kind of an environment.
It had its good days i love training others.
DIfficult to work when you have to worry about my job.
Management lacks respect for ANY of its enployees!
Curtainwall Assembler (Current Employee) – Chester, VA – 23 August 2016
Managenent...especially warehouse supervisors are well known for demeaning the employees. Very unorganized. Will tell you to complete one task and return to pull you from that and place you anywhere they can find some other meaningless task to accomplish. No advancement. No motivation. Warehouse temperatures are above 90 degrees in the summer with no air circulation. Employees are very unsatisfied with their jobs. Overall just a very negative atmosphere! Apply at your own risk!
Very negative supervisor/employee relationship. No respect either direction.
Yard Associate (Current Employee) – Chester, VA – 7 July 2016
Have worked here for nearly 6 months. Haven't been given the chance to train in other areas of the warehouse, assigned more meaningful tasks receive any opportunities to advance myself here. Operating the equipment here is a "Do as you're told" task. No one here shows you the correct way to do anything so pack your patience. When your work is criticised by someone here it's about finger pointing instead of demonstrating the proper way to complete your task and making your job duties "clear". Many safety hazards at the Chester location and poor management. No feedback whatsoever. Pay is minimal at best for anyone who doesn't fit into their budget. You take what you can get. Although I have heard that the best way to establish a fair wage is to negotiate your pay at the interview. Many dishonest employees in upper management and supervisory positions who have been fired for stealing company property. You are all on your own here. So apply at your own risk. I am determined to find a better position elsewhere that will pay me fairly and allow me to gain "real" experience.
Benefits are appealing to those who need them.
Work environment is stressful and very unorganized for the pay.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – California – 25 April 2016
I worked in the West Region ( California)
First you need to be a white republican to feel comfortable working with these folks , organization is the worst.
Management crew VP's are like mafia they have been there for 30+ years so there's no accountability on then , all the new employees are used as escape goats , the turnover on new employees is the worst in the industry, they lost millions in the NYC area and the boat is sinking it was a waste of my time
Line Lead (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – 28 January 2016
Very poorly Managed By the head guy there , he had a very bad way of talking to people. Always trying to embarrass everyone he talks to in front of the whole shop instead of pulling that person to the side.
Plant Production Coordinator, Current Project (Current Employee) – Chester, VA – 29 December 2015
The job is a high-stress one with demanding very long hours and weekends with very little emphasis on work-life balance. There is a focus on negativity within each project that tends to hide any positives and creates a culture of finger-pointing. While the leadership is more than capable, the culture oftentimes undermines any respect they would gain from employees.
Competitive pay, good benefits
Long hours with no overtime, lack of work-life balance, negative culture
