Order Assembler
I thought that this facility was high ranked in management, but I noticed that with me having warehouse experience in my past that I was authorized by a couple foremen to operate all the machinery, yet so many co-workers were upset at seeing me operate other machinery that they haven't touched since they started as frustration got built in the facility as I was just wanting to complete my work accurately and safely and on time.
The trainer never ended up certifying me on the internal certification which left me concerned as MANY employees just operate another machine on their own free will. No training given, except on the jiggers & Raymond Reach.
Pros
Its a busy business
Cons
Hours & communication between management

not recommended
owners pride themselves for being a trustworthy family company and promise things to lure you in except, 6 months down the road you'll realize they never had any intention to keep their word.
Pros
turkey for christmas :))
Cons
owners are liars

whats to say
Place is a nightmare push push push .... faster faster faster..
God help you if there any family or health issues.

Nothing is as important as getting the job done regardless of how long it takes or if there are any pressing issues of your own.

No communication or understanding if a mistake is made
Cons
long tedious hours cramped work spaces and poor attitudes by co workers

productive, organized workplace with a great atmosphere.
Conestoga Cold Storage is a well organized facility that appooints tasks at the beginning of the shift that are to be carried out by the end of the shift. I learned valuable skills in the shipping and receiving industry, how to work forklifts, reach trucks, battery powered walkees and truck loaders. I also learned how to stack skids in order from their first stop to their last. The management at conestoga was very friendly and helpful, never bothered to lend a hand or suggestion. Co- workers were very much the same as well as light hearted and friendly. The hardest part of my job was giving up the summer days to work afternoons, but the job itself wasnt tough, very straight forward. I really enjoyed getting to know other students at conestoga and lkearning to drive the heavy machinery, i fell that conestoga paved the way for me to enjoy other warehouse like jobs and excel with other companies.
Pros
optional overtime
Cons
afternoon hours

Cold Storage
You really have to be comfortable working in sub-zero temperatures for long periods of time with little rest. Great employee's, helpful managers and clear sense of direction and purpose in the work place. The hardest part of the job is getting used to the equipment and being efficient in the workplace.
Pros
free coffee machine, several breaks.
Cons
long hours of high activity, tiring.
