Line Loader (Former Employee) – Plainfield, IN – 29 December 2016
This had to be the worst job i had since i been working, its not all about the work but its more so the Management . Supervisor are not very good leaders and i just had bad experience working for there company
A typical day at work is, Checking for load out or Unloads for the day filling out forklift safety sheets, and start with the day. I learned different types of metals, how to deal with clients in a positive way. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with good people, and deal with different clients
Manager (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – 1 October 2015
Can be a very entrepreneurial environment. The constant introduction of products and sales locations encourages great diversity / work responsibilities. The obvious day to day challenges are making sure everyone is equipped to deal with change. A great place to learn how to interact with people from a multitude of locations and backgrounds.
Lots of cash in the bank
Frequent lay-offs, management does not have industry experience
The workload can be quite heavy at times, but the "team" approach makes it very bearable. I enjoy coming to work and accomplishing the day's goals, and the people with whom I work create an environment that is peaceful.
Delivery driver and warehouseman (Former Employee) – Sacramento, Ca – 1 September 2015
My day was mainly pick up and delivery. This included loading and unloading, I liked the driving very much. When not driving, I was in the warehouse doing whatever need to be done. I learned to solve problems and work together as a team.
The office management was approachable and supportive.
Great Team of people who were poorly treated every which way and consistently undervalued and never truly appreciated. Here at liquidity they always remember mistakes and errors than they do not value achievements or hard work. The Managers there were quite liars. They sold you a dream and made you work for it only to have you taste the cold bowl of disappointment. No matter how much sweat would drench off of us the GM would walk by and not say a word to you unless of course it was to chastise you and degrade your efforts simply because he did not approve of where my pallets were located. Simply two inches to far to the right it seemed. And when there was nothing wrong and the team was flowing it seemed management would give us a break with some pizza yet it got so repetitive that after three months of working there they would simply distract you with pizza to deliver the bad news with a bit less of a shock. What do you worry about when your boss just orders everyone cheap pizza, who cares if they cut our hours again. They know how to upset you. I should of realized this wasn't the place for me after the 12th temp that came in walked out on his first day. But I tried because boy they can sell you a dream. Since I've been there I have seen 6 employees leave and more than 60 temps come and go but by their own means I doubt the company would of let go of so many during prime time. Maybe its management? When I was officially hired they offered me a lead position and boy did I feel good but 5 months in I realized no raise no official promotion they are full of sh1t and I left. Horridmore... company and HR is a joke.less
Marketing Communications Coordinator (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – 20 April 2015
The culture is fast-paced and allows me to work on multiple projects at a time in many different areas. Being a part of this culture allows me to adapt quickly to changes and learn multiple skill sets that enable me to grow in my career.
Great Office, fun working if not for incompetent parts of company
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Barstow, CA – 29 January 2015
Always had fun working with everyone in the office. Cross trained jobs and office ended up being one of the best in the country despite size. Was fun letting my bosses take credit for all our hard work since our communication was so great. Plus they were always quick to let us know how much they appreciated us. Local management always did the best they could for any situation, even safety.
Sadly, upper management (not the Area heads) were somewhat rigid in investing in something they didn't have a focus group for.
Was forced, despite repeated concerns, to have basically a half eaten bicycle seat on my Forklift for well over a year. Only got fixed when the forklift died. Meaning not.
Any incident reports to the safety department were determined to be your fault even if the issue was explicitly not an at-fault incident. If your name was on the top of the paper reporting it, you were at fault.
In fact, over the course of my time I began to realize the Safety Department was unable to comprehend any safety reports nor was willing to learn much about safety. If not for my love for everyone in the Operations and parts of Middle Management, I'd dare say any lesser person would have sued.
Awesome Management and Area Management. Great coworkers. Customers always fun.
Safety Department dangerously incompetent, slow to adjust
Financial Data Analyst (Contract) (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – 12 January 2015
Organized goals to meet within specific time limits. Learned how to use SQL. The hardest part was long hours of sitting down and enjoyable part was working with fun co-workers who know how to crack jokes and get the job done at the same time. Our boss was focused on production and we achieved our goals under less supervision.
