Temporary Employee (Former Employee), Covington, GAApril 23, 2014
Pros: we were swing shift so it was 4 days on four days off
Cons: the 12 hours and we could only get 33 hours per week
Good job just the 12 hours seem forever to come and go and the part of only getting 33hours per week I didn't like. I think if we are full time then we should at least get 40 years a week. But the job was really easy and the co worker were really nice and friendly and also they supervisor was too.

Fork Lift operator (Current Employee), Fort Wayne, INMarch 14, 2014
Pros: benifits
Cons: long hrs, management, lms, environment, stress, no job security
All your hard work is based on a computer system that is seriously flawed! What ever happened to just being able to go to work and do your job and go home? I had such great expectations for this company but they were soon demolished! At least once a week I'm called in the office to be scorned about my( L.M.S ) 'THE SYSTEM'. ITS bad , I have been there – more... almost 6 months and I am desperately trying to find another job.Did i mention that since I have started there have been at least 25 people either fired or quit! Highest turnover rate I have seen in along time. – less

Human Resources Manager (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MNMarch 12, 2014
Pros: human resources is an strategic business partner
Cons: conflict avoidance culture
Great place to work as people is always willing to help and management assigns challenging projects that stretches the individual out of their comfort zone. I love the fact that you can work independently on your projects and you can leverage your network for best practice sharing. You also have exposure to senior leadership early in your career. You – more... also have the opportunity to be part of any of an Employee Networks, which are active, engaged teams that also support your development within the organization.
