Manager was wonderful,and associates were great
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, New YorkMay 12, 2014
Pros: very good health care, products that they carried were very good, so i was proud to work for a company that had a great reputation
Cons: didnt like the way they did their sales, would change things often with the locations, and the signs they sent had many mistakes.they didnt reward you for any good work, had no incentives.
I woul count the safe,put the register drawers in and go to the bank before the store opened.When I came back I would check emails to see if there was anything new from corporate, I then would do the line-up and the to do list.Once the doors were open the main focus were the customers. I have learned that the customers are different in different parts – more... of our locations. The hardest part of this or any of my jobs is trying to really understand what the customer is wanting. language was and is difficult at times. The most enjoyable part of my days were intereacting with our customers, and I loved to do plan-o-grams and price changes. My co-workers and myself got along. I am a very hard worker and with them seeing that helped with their attitude and work ethics. – less

hot workplace with hard labor
Packaging and Filling Machine Operator and Tender (Former Employee), Corning, NYMarch 27, 2014
Pros: discounted gatoraid during hot days, shift differrential, extra pay on night and evening shifts, excellent overtime pay for holidays and any other day
Cons: heat of the plant, poor building structure allows for weather like snow and rain in the plant, co workers in constant competition with you to advance their own careers
every day you come in, wait in line to clock in, pick up a schedule and then go off to your scheduled production line. the job can become tedious as you may be running on little to no sleep as you are on swing shift when you start out. your body takes time to adjust to the hours required for the job. the best part about the job is the shift differential. – more... if you are working overtime, you get an additional half hour before your overtime starts. coworkers will always be in competition with you because of seniority. if you started working the same day as another person, you may be second on the list to get something you want based on seniority. job advancement is not based on performance, probably because the hardest part of the job is showing up to work, not doing the job well. – less

Very easy and enjoyable warehouse
Order Picker (Former Employee), Monee, ILMarch 3, 2014
Pros: alot of moving around and overtime
Cons: they shut down
I would come in and we would always have meetings at the begging. I learned how to work at a fast pace environment. There was very little management but when the managers would come around it was nothing but good news. I got along great with my co workers. The hardest part of the job was sometimes lifting up the heavy boxes because of the fact I was – more... pregnant then. The most enjoyable part is you get to move around instead of staying in one place. – less

worst place i ever worked
Production line Operator (Current Employee), Greencastle , paFebruary 8, 2014
Pros: insurance
Cons: very bad working conditions
Managers are horrible and have favorites and could care less about you. They walk by you and act as if you dont exist. pay is good but in the busy season they make you work 10 hour schedule with no days off and then wonder why production gets bad.

Never expected it..
Equipment Operator/Back-up Lead (Former Employee), Monee, ILNovember 27, 2013
Pros: job advancement.
Cons: some favoritism.
Too bad it had to close,none of us had any idea. Although it was short lived for me I did gain a lot of experience and references working there. Management only got worse at the end of its days but for the most part it Supervisors were OK depending on what department you worked for. The hardest part of the job was dealing with people that didn't want – more... to work but did just enough to keep their jobs. And as always I enjoyed the overtime while it lasted.. – less

Electrical Engineer /Manager (Former Employee), Corning, NYSeptember 18, 2013
Pros: business seems good.
Cons: too strong of a union work force. no continuity.
Unfortunately WK is a very political place to work. Direction is not clear and reorganizing is the norm. Many supervisors in a very short period of time. Work environment is very "hot", in excess of 130F. Expected hours are very high.
