  • The HR department is garbage. They are slow to respond and that department doesn't match the quality of the other departments. We've had excellent candidates apply and then stop pursuing employment with our company because getting someone to respond is close to impossible. Getting health insurance, 401k info or employee support is close to impossible. That department is by far the biggest issue for the whole company.

What I like about the company

There is room to make a lot of money. The teams are also wonderful, but they work hard! They were supportive of my maternity leave and welcomed me back with a smooth transition into a normal workload again.

What I dislike about the company

They need to respond to their team members who ask for help with heavy work loads. Sometimes management gets comfortable with a stressed out team knowing we can "barely handle" the work load rather than hiring an additional team member to alleviate pressure off of the whole team.

  • More to do outside. There's a big field area that could be easily turned into a pleasant place for people to walk or eat on breaks.

What I like about the company

We have an environment that supports building friendships and connections across departments. The social events that are put on are always something to look forward to

What I dislike about the company

For my department, there's really not much to speak of outside of personal disagreements which will happen anywhere. We get good support to do what we want to do.

Suggestions for improvement

  • A complete makeover of upper management is needed. A company sale would do C&S a lot of good. Penny pinching owners are the principle reason for the company's cultural issues.

What I like about the company

Safety is a major component within the culture, however this is used to cap in the incentive pay that is offered based on productivity standards.

What I dislike about the company

There is a great deal of favoritism within the warehouse and office environment. If they like you, you can miss all the days you want; if they don't, the rules will guide you out of a job. Also, even with tuition assistance, there is simply no room for growth if your part of an internal 'black list.' Supervision is lackluster towards 'superior' or 'favored' employees. The company holds back on your promotions or transfers to other positions within it simply based on its own needs. Very little work/life balance, and they will use the "24 hour rule" to force people to work overtime as needed.
