Do not respect their long time associates. Cater more to hiring than retention. Leadership in Keene is clueless and don't respect field management and associates.
Support from management
Warehouse management tries but is handcuffed by corporate. Procurement management tries hard to support their associates but are handcuffed by corporate. Human Resources is completely incompetent.
Warehouse management is in complete disarray. Supervisors are worked too many hours and get zero respect. The associates see it on the floor.
Freedom to work independently
You can work independently but you have to work at home alot to get your work done.
Communication is OK.
Need more women in positions of authority, think some women are held back.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Always looking to cut their older workforce. No loyalty, cutthroat.
Their performance management is a joke. They create a number no matter how much value add is and it leads to turnover.
Overall compensation for your work
LOw ball their long term employees, pay more to newcomers. Its sad.
Office / Work Environment
Produce or else. Corporate creates unattainable expectations. Better in procurement office.
They try to be eco friendly.
Expect you to drop everything and C&S is #1 or else. Routinely worked over 50 hours every week, but even that wasn't enough.
This is sad because they do a lot for the community, but owner Cohen doesn't allow it to be marketed so it is a detriment to the facilities.
You are disposable.
They do their share.
This is more a reflection of Hatfield than the company as a whole.
You are challenged, no doubt it, you do learn a lot about the business.
Inclusive / Diverse
Try hard to be diverse. The warehouse is a veritable melting pot.
Suggestions for improvement
- TAKE CARE OF YOUR LONG TIME ASSOCIATES AND REWARD THEM FOR THEIR DEDICATION.
