Picker/Packer (Former Employee), Auburn, WA – September 21, 2013
Pros: make good friends.
Cons: lack of hours during the off season, management was poor, lack of care for their employees
When I was hired I worked night shift during the holiday season. 10 to 15 hour shift that seemed like I lived there. The leads and management didn't really care for their employees and they made it feel impossible to meet their daily standards. The only good part about the job is getting work with a few great people.
Good working environment, good position to start working
Construcción R&D Engineer (Former Employee), Madrid – February 10, 2014
Considering that innovation can affect all departments in a company, this position allows to get in touch with the whole company, and learn about its functioning, which is highly recommended for young people that have just started their professional career. Also the environment with workmates is pleasant and the balance between work and life is fine.
Forklift Operator/Material Handler (Former Employee), Granite City, IL – January 22, 2014
Cons: see above
I will never work for OHL anywhere out of fear of it being just like the last one I worked. Was hired without being told of expectations. Such as being on call and called in early. (When I worked there and left for home they would call you 4 hrs prior to your schedule and tell you to be in early THAT day/night. And if you didn't answer your cell...Whoooooboyyyy!) – more... I have NOTHING good to say about that company and warn everyone from working there. They ripped me off on pay too. I negotiated for a higher wage and when my 90 days came around they said I got it when they hired me because they give all that up front....REALLY!? WHO DOES THAT!? THAT MAKES NO SENSE! – less
Horrible place of employment!!! Do not recommend getting a job here!!
Puller/Stocker (Current Employee), Chambersburg, PA – December 29, 2013
Pros: its a job, its in a dry place, if no one gets hurt for a long time they give you a little party to celebrate them saving money
Cons: everything about the company
Its a borderline sweatshop! hot as hell in the summer and winter coat weather in the winter. They nickle and dime you the whole way.. They pay $9 hour and charge you $29 for a mandatory drug test, that comes out of your first check! (because u make such good money) It is mandatory that you do a certain amount of work per hour or you will be "let go" – more... and to accomplish that amount of work you are literally almost at a run to accomplish it, No one should have to work that hard for $9! but they say the harder you work there is an incentive package! if you completely run and move as fast as you possibly can you can make up to $12 hour if you double their production.. and there is always room to move up in the company, but all the good positions are taken.. so the most you can actually move up is floor management. I chose first shift cause that works best for me.. but what they did not tell you is your working 10 hour days and you have to be not only in the building but all the way at the production line, at 3:30 am where the time clocks are.. They offer you a health package for $60 week out of your check.. but the down side is its not even a big enough package to cover the "Obamacare garbage" so it is basically useless.. They give you holidays off.. unpaid.. and only that one day of the holiday.. I could go on and on but I think you get the point.. don't make the same mistake I did. – less
LTO (Former Employee), winchester, va – December 18, 2013
Supervisors are lazy, bad communication throughout the building, over worked, not enough bodies on forklifts, a lot of ignorance, too many bosses I'm pretty sure everybody who works there is a supervisor. Bad business practices. Good luck.
Material Handler (Former Employee), New Smithville, PA – December 11, 2013
typical day at work: come in at the beginning of your shift, set up your station, pull a box off the line and begin your day. The hardest part of the job was the weather condition, it was always cold and we had to work in coats which was really uncomfortable.
