Greatwork place and work enviroment
Packer (Former Employee), Shepherdsville, KYMay 10, 2013
A typical work day consist of coming in unloading trailers in pallett number order. Breaking palletts down and scanning them to be shipped. Labeling pallets then throwing the on the line the hardest part of the job is keepingup with the system that your work is running on. The coworkers are nice and friendly for the most part. The most enjoyable part – more... of the job is being ahead of the system and being able to help out other coworkers. – less

A lot of responsibilities
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Orland Park, ILMay 8, 2013
You are required to do a lot of work and different tasks with little compensation. Management is hit or miss based on who you have.

typical distribution job with opportunity for overtime. micromanaged all day every day..
selector/ lift driver/ loader (Current Employee), plant city, floridaApril 21, 2013
Pros: plenty of opportunity for overtime, decent profit sharing and benifits
Cons: management is at times incompetent, decrepit equipment, negative atmosphere due to employees with no work life balance 60 hours a week all year, dont plan to go to college or expect to raise small children while working here, life revolves around gfs and thats how management expects it.
Nice place to work to get overtime. Take away the overtime and its just a mediocre distribution job. As long as you can handle co-workers complaining about quitting all day long and just stick to your job and dont get drowned by all the negativity it is a decent place to work. And this is a christian company so if you arent a christian or religious; – more... the "uplifting" christian themed posters that are plastered around the warehouse and the priests that come by to proselytize the employees periodically might bother you. Be prepared to be micromanaged as well. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Maumee, OHApril 11, 2013
Pros: christmas bonus, and company christmas party
This was my first job, and it was a great environment to work in. The managers were great, the co-workers were great, and the customers were great!

From the very first day, they ingrain in you the importance of treating customers appropriately, and it has been incredibly beneficial in my work life since leaving.

All around, great atmosphere, and family – more... feel with the staff. – less

Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee), Greenwood, INMarch 9, 2013
Everything about this place is great. From the upper management down to the coworkers. I would have to say the hardest part of my job was not getting enough hours, other than that I enjoyed my time there.

The store I was at was not a good enviroment
Cashier (Former Employee), Ontario ohioFebruary 16, 2013
Pros: got paid every week was great
Cons: bad attitudes, and frowned on taking breaks
I had worked in the one in Ontario Ohio. I enjoyed that the store was. Was busy but at the same time I didn't like going in because most of the people that worked there were not friendly at all they just had bad attitudes and was in their own little. Licks. As for management. I really think that they should also have evaluation on their performance – more... from the co workers so corporate will know
How management is to their employees, customers. I say this because I was a cashier And watch the shift leader open
The store up one morning and she stood by the door
Let the customers in and never said good morning to anyone
That had walked through the door. I feel your manager is the one
That Sets the example to the employees and customers on what
How the customers will feel when they Come there and shop. A store
Should have a friendly welcome atmospher and this will make the
Customers wanting to come back. I feel that the Ontario Ohio store needs a lot of improvement with management and some employees
Attitude. One of the co workers told me that hardly no one would talk to her. And. Most of them made me uncomfortable to work
With them. Also you also got frowned on for wanting to take
A break or lunch break. Ex employee – less

Sometimes either too stressful or boring but at least it was a job.
Cashier (Current Employee), IndianaFebruary 16, 2013
Pros: decent wages, friendly co-workers
Cons: poor management, no breaks
A typical day here was usually me by myself at the register and it was either too overwhelming or some days hardly any people too check out. Some of the managers were unorganized and stressed me out. The co-workers were at least nice to work with. The worst part of the job is that I worked 7-9 hour shifts with little to no breaks because of short staff – more... or unorganized managers. The best part of the job was seeing the same customers a lot and building a connection with them. Most customers that came in were very friendly and nice to be around. – less

Great place to start and enjoy your career!
Refrigeration Mechanic (Current Employee), Plant City, FLFebruary 14, 2013
Pros: 10% discount, they appreciate what you do for the company, great advancement opportunity, great place to work.
Cons: can't think of any.
Great place to work. I tend to work 53+ hour weeks and I give up most of my weekends to come in and work, but not because they ask me to, I volunteer my time. The only company that has ever told me "Thanks for all your hard work this week". You never hear that. Pay is great. Overall I'm 22 years young and I could see myself retiring from this company. – more... Great family atmosphere. Also great advancement opportunity here, I've worked here for 9 months and when I was hired I told my supervisor that I wanted to make Maintenance Supervisor one day and 2 months later the Plant Manager recommended me for Department Trainer to help get me on the right path to becoming a supervisor one day. – less
