Company Culture

They present one type of culture, then internally disregard those core values.

Support from management

I did not receive support I needed to do my job.

Teamwork

The only positive working at that company were my coworkers, but they wouldn't allow time for teamwork. It was always go, go, go.

Freedom to work independently

They were all micro managers. Any mistakes and you were gone.

Internal Communication

They would make changes and just expects people to be able to just know the change.

Gender Equality

It was always the good old boys work ethic.

Attitude towards older colleagues

It was the good, old boys work ethic. So even though there were 45+ workers, they expected everybody else to do the work.

Career Development

Promotions were about who you knew not what you were or what experience you brought to the table.

Overall compensation for your work

My compensation was at the lower end, but I was doing the work of three full time roles and I was not recognized with compensation or encourages at all.

Office / Work Environment

The corporate office was physically comfortable, but the 50+ warehouses were cold storage and they were unable to regulate the temperature in the offices (which should not be cold all the time).

Environmental Friendliness

I do not recall any recycling containers.

Work-Life Balance

They expected me to work 50-60 hours per week and I have children.

Job Security

I was always afraid of being let go for something out of my control.

Handicapped Accessibility

The facilities have the minimum accessible resources required by law.

Workplace Safety

The workers at the warehouse did receive safety training.

Challenging Work

I was expected to do my full-time job as well as the two employees who left and were never replaced.

Inclusive / Diverse

It was the good, old boys club. They were all white older men.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management needs to focus on its employees and stop just focusing on simply business transactions.

What I like about the company

I do not have any positive to say about any personal experiences.

What I dislike about the company

Management need to focus on its employees instead of always focusing on its business.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The improvements I would make would depend on the company and its workers. I would go undercover as a regular worker in different departments and get feedbacks as how to make the company better.

What I like about the company

My pay is excellent..benefits are great dental medical and life insurance. The 401k match program and the abililty to get reverse loans on your own 401k money

What I dislike about the company

My overall bad experiences with coworkers on racial issues or political issues. The Republican parts is much divided from the Democratics and the independents. So in all we as people coworkers and human beings. Have to come together and comprises have to be made.

Company Culture

The culture around there is every man out for their SELVES. Management says it open door policy which is a lie. Closed doors always. This company doesn't offer an inviting culture.

Most supervisors dont know your job so you are forced to work independently

Internal Communication

Closed door always

Attitude towards older colleagues

Career Development
