Company Culture

So many different people.

Support from management

As long as you work hard management will have your back.

Teamwork

I would say 5 stars but there's a select few who ruin the team work aspect but thats ok.

Freedom to work independently

Most of the time youre on your own.

Internal Communication

Communication could be better. Nothing like finding out about a mandatory sunday right before break friday when all the part timers are leaving. Only happened once but thats enough to anger plenty of people who maybe made plans.

Gender Equality

There definitely is gender equality but there are quite a few things most females i know couldn't handle if their starting out as package handlers. Not saying they cant do it or arent asked to do it. just saying 70 to 100lb boxes arent a cake walk to do repetitively.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Some people suck but thats ok

Overall compensation for your work

Work hard youll get far

Office / Work Environment

Depends if youre office or warehouse

Environmental Friendliness

Hot or cold

Work-Life Balance

You can work life around the job. Most of the time when you start its only. 4 to 6 hrs a day. If you cant plan around that then idk what to tell you.

Handicapped Accessibility

If youre physically handicapped forget about working here. Accessibility is fine. Working is not.

Workplace Safety

Strict on safety

Inclusive / Diverse

Pretty diverse crew.

The following perks were offered to me

Free Snacks/Drinks is offered

Company Culture

They put trinkets in front of you like carrots to a horse, they literally have “competitions” between their districts and stores with barely any real rewards at the end

Support from management

No support from management just constant reinforcement of negativity. Only support I ever received as far as management were the 2 assistant managers who either got transferred to another store or quit due to the center managers audacity

Teamwork

For the most part the actual workers usually make an effort to help one another the problem is management, by cutting hours and extending your lunches for “payroll” so their bonuses don’t get affected

Freedom to work independently

I only give this 2 stars because you have to process and deliver boxes/pallets independently yet every other aspect is heavily supervised over your shoulder, telling you not asking to do something that has nothing to do with your job description

Internal Communication

Our center manager systematically put everything and everyone down so you can’t be qualified for a up to 5% of your salary raise.Also would never mention anything positive in our “huddles” which are briefings with the team, we would have to find out anything positive on our own through email,etc.

Career Development

Very hard to move up with the company, you have to get approval from center manager just to transfer, I’ve seen to people one assistant manager and a lead consultant struggle to transfer out of the store

Overall compensation for your work

They over work you for whatever they’re paying you. It’s always can you come in on your day off or close when you weren’t supposed to or informed until a hour before you get off work

Office / Work Environment

No break room, always dirty, and you will get blamed whenever you center manager feels like it

Environmental Friendliness

Lots of dust in the air from pallets and old boxes

Work-Life Balance

They expect you not to have a life, including giving you an inconsistent schedule and asking you to come in on your days off and “cutting you lose” prior to your scheduled time at their leisure. As well as asking you to close when you’re not scheduled to and not informing you of closing until a hr or two before you are supposed to clock out

Job Security

You can be gone easily, they have a revolving door, and they make that clear you’re replaceable

Challenging Work

Mundane tedious work

Inclusive / Diverse

Only african americans and hispanic people are the only coworkers I’ve ever had
