Awesome employer where I enjoy coming to work everyday
Recruiting/Media Coordinator (Current Employee), Springfield, MO – April 20, 2015
Pros: Onsite amenities, amazing pay (if you want to work hard), and you get to work for an awesome owner
Cons: Vacation time policy isn't the best but pay makes up for that
I love working for Prime! When I first got offered my initial position in Human Resources, I was hesitant because all inhouse associates get paid on incentive, but taking a position at Prime has become one of my greatest decisions. I enjoy getting to work in an open environment with very few levels of management. My ideas and opinions are heard and acted upon. I, also, really like the facilities (basketball court, weight room, movie theater, cafe, salon & spa...). Obviously, every job can have its bad days, but at Prime, those are few and far between. As a daughter of a truck driver, I appreciate the effort that Prime puts into their company to put the driver at the focus of the company. From day one, I have heard over and over that without our drivers, we would be nothing. It's so true. None of us inhouse would be needed without our fleet of drivers hauling freight across the country in the rain, snow, and sleet 24/7/365 so that Americans can have the goods we need and want at our fingertips. I would definitely recommend Prime to anyone that wants to work hard, and I have. My sister and two brother-in-laws both work at Prime with me!
truck driver lease purchase (Former Employee), Springfield, MO – January 22, 2015
Pros: good company
this company was ok they kept you running and would get you home when you requested it. You were able to make good money and have home time too. The dispatch worked with you not against you so that you were able to meet your own goals that you had set for yourself and keep you running.
Server (Former Employee), Rio Rancho, NM – December 29, 2014
Pros: good people
Cons: not enough business
The people at Prime were all wonderful. It was a very exciting experience to be there to open a new place, and I was very excited about the idea. Unfortunately just opening and not enough advertisement there just weren't enough tables to make a livable wage to support my family.
HR Manager (Former Employee), Davao City, Philippines – June 6, 2014
Pros: the opportunity to check and balance every department
Cons: the resistance to change
Reports to work at least an hour before schedule to model punctuality to all employees, have learned a lot of every personalities and different characters of staff and management. Management although is still very traditional and family dominated style of management and unwilling to explore to improve productivity. Most co-workers are very respectful but some production staff who are ill-educated are a challenge to handle. The most enjoyable part is the selection process to fill vacancies and the self initiated trainings and development.
jackpot operator (Current Employee), indianapolis,indiana – June 3, 2014
A typical day at work for me is first being very energized I love to be enthusiastic and get others pumped up that's the first thing. I begin with going over to my computer check for paper work from the other shift to see what they left behind. if so I see what error they have and fix all errors before I get my crew up and running. When everthing seems to be clear I go over to another computer which starts up all lines/lanes and ready for a productive day in the warehouse. my title is somewhat to me like a manager or team lead but I have not been giving the title or pay arrangement for half of the things I do here. In the warehouse we have pick modules where I before worked until my position was changed into my current one now. what we do over in the pick mod area is focus on accuracy. We have ptd lights that tell you however many to throw. There are 3 zones included and 3 people control the zones 1 of each. I control all boxes that come down the lanes keep track if there the right boxes and also right amount. if not I search my computer to see which lanes need what and where they are coming from. Main thing for me is not getting my line backed up. Paper work goes into cubbies letting our stackers know which product is coming down his/her lane. Amount and etc. Im responsible for lanes getting cleared out and new orders getting started. Im forklift certified. I can load and unload trucks, I pick up skids and etc. at the end of night. I also control the damages and paper work for that at the end of night. Leaving the next shift in great shape to perform a productive shift.

Rip you off on the lease program charge you out of route fee on your own gas and if you want to go home they get you home asap when you come back on duty you are at least a thousand dollars or more in the hole they make sure its a loosen lease for the driver and if you walk away like the lease program supposedly to be they still try to charge for next loads against you do not trust this company
