Nothing you give is enough
Quality Assurance (Former Employee), Hope, BCNovember 2, 2013
Pros: free coffee
Cons: management
Good benefits, fast paced environment.
Poor management, blames employees for issues that should be addressed at a higher level.
Favoritism abounds at this location.
If you are looking for a decent wage without the security of full time, and don't mind giving them every free hour of your life, but being expected and guilt tripped into giving more, then – more... this is the place for you.

Some of the people are great, and that makes it easier to work your 12 hour shifts.
No day is ever the same, but politics and blame games abound. – less

Production Resource (Former Employee), Guelph, ONJune 12, 2012
Fast paced environment
You will learn many things as a supervisor here which you may not learn in other environements.
Managment wants to see change and results, but also needs to change the atmosphere within a high maintenace environment.
Hardest part of the job would be being on nights, but it also is the time where you will learn the most.

Uncomfortable, negative environment; lack of trust between management and labor
Warehouse Manager (Former Employee), Stanwood, MIAugust 15, 2014
Pros: free bottled water
Cons: environment not conducive to plucking the knowledge from the staff engaged in running the operation, negative, lacking of trust across the board.
Less than desirable results were challenged in a very negative manner, and morale was unhealthy and dreadfully low.

I learned to be myself, trust in the experiences I had prior to this role and use my talent and communication style to effectively manage other people and the processes they were engaged in.

The relationships surrounding human resources – more... and plant management felt unusually secretive and prevented the open style of challenge and communication they pledge to seek.

The supervisor level across the organization was beaten down and unsure of themselves; supreme lack of self-confidence as a result of the daily pressures brought on by top level management.

The staff; generally had a correct view of the turmoil at the very top and this seemed to frustrate leadership. The teams performed very well and could truly benefit from leadership that had a focus and emphasis on truth.

As with any organization, areas of improvement are aplenty; but the lack of engagement is holding the entire operation back. The issues seem to be systemic as turnover in these leadership roles across the organization and North America indicate bigger challenges than just a bad hire.

I was recruited to bring my experience and approach to the team. Unfortunately; this was suppressed and efforts were undertaken on a daily basis to teach me and other leaders to share a single message that was not our own. – less

Great place to work. Treated all employees with respect
Forklift operator (Current Employee), Breinigsville, PAAugust 13, 2014
Each shift has a shift hand off. ( SHO ). This was very important as far as informing the next shift as to what went right, or what went wrong. Co-workers were more than helpful when teaching a new employee job responsibilities.

Pros: not bad $
Cons: length of time it took to become permanent employee, if you were relying on your own work ethics, instead of who you knew.
Didn't matter how well you did your job,the only way you advanced was to be related to someone already employed there,or be really good friends with upper management employees..

Great Company
Account Sales Representative (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 23, 2014
Pros: great management and stable company
Cons: no creativity, outdated methods of operation, no communication with co-workers
A typical day requires an employee to engage in many face to face cold call sales pitches. Management in the company is very supporting and encouraging. The most enjoyable part of the job is, of course making the sale. While the toughest parts of the role were the everyday grind of a cold call sales representative. I learned am fully capable in a career – more... on sales but would be more efficient and inspired in a career on marketing. – less

former route sales rep
Route sales rep (Former Employee), Phoenix .AZJuly 21, 2014
Pros: free water.. local management
Cons: read review
Be very aware... compensation and hours described during interview process are not what you will earn nor will the hours be what you will be promised.... this is a salary position with NO I repeat No bonus program... You will be told that if you work Saturday's the compensation is 300 per each Saturday worked. Not only will you not have the opportunity – more... for Saturday compensation, but employees soon learn that they are expected to work 5 Saturday's a year for free... Routing systems are extremely antiquated ... what appears to be be a scheduled 10 hour day on paper is more realistically a 12-13 hour day... If you desire a position , being completely micro managed and lied to about potential earnings... this is the position for you... I have had the privilege of working for two world class route organizations... This was not one of them. – less
