Support from management
We sometimes got help from other branches in entering orders, but they were nearly always done wrong or were late.
No one knew what the other person was doing because they did not have a good system for anything.
Freedom to work independently
Everything had to be okayed by a manager or supervisor.
They only hire men in the warehouse, presumably because screws are really heavy
Overall compensation for your work
They were very generous with overtime but only because they didn't want to hire anyone else to help, resulting in LONG hours and tired employees.
We always had to work overtime, were definitely pressured into overtime, and were made to feel guilty if we didn't work overtime.
Not even the person who trained me and had been there for 22 years felt as though she had job security.
Office work would be fine, but warehouse would be out of the question. You have to carry heavy boxes of screws all day, and get up on ladders and forklifts. With the amount of time I spent walking from the office to the warehouse, I would really highly not recommend this job to a semi-disabled person.
They are really sticklers for safety. Always spotting, always wearing safety glasses, always reporting near misses.
NOT in a good way. Training is trial-by-fire, and they train as you go, so there is a lot of waiting around until someone is available to teach you one thing. You never know what you're supposed to be doing. All of the customers are different and have different needs, and all of the information is stored in people's heads.
