Great place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Only reason I have a 3 star is the working conditions in the warehouse. In the summer the heat is so unmanageable it feels as though you will faint. But they do give you free water and Gatorade on those extreme hot days. And sometimes the sorters don’t pay attention to the boxes being sent down. And will send the boxes that should have ton with heavy down the chute. And it comes at top speed and could potential break your bones

management is BAD!

this is the most unprofessional place i have ever worked. management is useless, union is useless, if you have your own opinion you better keep it to yourself. didn't learn anything new. mindless job in a high school environment.

Pros
