Driver/Warehouse (Current Employee), Queens, NY – August 13, 2014
Interstate Batteries is a fun environment and fast moving during the winter season where it's get very busy. My daily duties are to charge and test batteries and also keeping everything in order inside the warehouse and i am also a delivery driver where on a daily i would make about 10-15 stops on a busy day. I've learned a lot from this job i gained – more... the responsibility of opening and closing the store along with finalizing end of the day paper work and also a key holder. I would say the most enjoyable part of my job is being a driver and making the customers happy and having a great relationship with them also for bettering the company. – less
Warehouse Manager (Former Employee), Kendall – May 13, 2014
Pros: free lunch on pay day.
Owner micro manages all the time and extremely pretentious...warehouse workers work in fear. He needs to have banners on the wall so that subordinates execute his desired steps one by one, there is no needs for a manager in place to implement ideas or strategic management. You work from 7AM to 7PM non stop throwing and stacking 50lbs batteries and recharging – more... and recycling batteries receiving acid drops every one and a while (Slave work). The owner only hired kids under 25 to make sure that they can keep up with the physical demand. 40K a year but with the hours you spend breaking your back it's more like 9/Hr. – less

Excellent company, Lacking some quality management
Support Analyst (Former Employee), Dallas, Texas – March 19, 2014
Pros: benefits are very good
Cons: all management should follow eeo
The company overall is a great organization. Environment is very upbeat and friendly, great employees. However certain departments provide very little training on PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE to all department personnel but some receive unlimited, with multiple project opportunities. While all department personnel are expected to perform at the same professional – more... level without equal or proper training.
Management in certain departments lacking in professionalism, EEO has very little meaning – less
The days went by quickly most of the time if there was plenty of work. The crew was easy going and fun, this made the other issues within the company more bearable. When I started there it had great benefits, but once the provider changed it turned into just another reason for people to leave. I learned a lot about the industry such as warehouse, operations, – more... retail, customer service etc. The hardest part of the job was the working conditions, it was mostly at the mercy of the weather. Summer and winter were the toughest. But it kept me in good shape, just a small plus. There was always a stressful atmosphere in management. Things went awry when operation policies changed since it always affected everyone at the facility. – less
o Assist customers (Former Employee), Angier, NC – June 21, 2013
a laid back business with good employees and supervisors. you come in everyday knowing what needs to be done and have a pretty set schedule. you learn a lot about batteries that you never would be able to guess if you haven't worked with them or the employees that teach it to you.
Administrative Assistant/Customer Service (Former Employee), Upland, CA – May 16, 2013
Pros: friendly customers, easy duties.
Cons: hostile environment
Helping customers with orders was what got me through my day. My duties were basic data entry and not as challenging as I would prefer. Majority of the co-workers were pleasant however the owners and office manager were very negative and did NOT treat employees with respect. Overall was a stressful position due to the way the owners talked to the employees. – more... At one time even threatened physical harm to a manager for a minor error. This is only at this particular location and not in any way infers that all franchises treat their employees in this manner. I unfortunately found this position to be a negative experience for what was actually an easy job in regards to duties. – less
