Suggestions for improvement

  • Free coffee, more opportunities for growth, higher compensation for entry and mid level employees.

What I like about the company

I have a great team and a supportive boss. I feel my work is challenging, yet rewarding. I have learned so much about the industry during my time here. The building is a welcoming environment in a desirable location. Company-wide events are something to look forward to. There are young professional leadership opportunities that will enhance personal growth for young employees. My supervisor trusts me and does not micro-manage. I am given opportunities and affordances I wouldn't have expected at my level.

What I dislike about the company

There is no hiring and retention plan. There has been high turnover for young employees because we feel stuck in our positions with no room for growth. If the company enabled young professionals to feel more valued and integral to the company, it would afford less turnover. Additionally, room for growth needs to be allowed when warranted. It often feels that morale is low because employees are not given the chance to move higher in their careers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • This warehouse is one of the lowest paying warehouses so I would raise the starting pay to at least $12/hr. Especially since everyone learns all positions and never stays in one area.

What I like about the company

For the most part it is up to you to finish the task you are given but it is still a team environment. Everyone still works together. I personally am an introverted person so I like that I do not need to talk to others unless necessary. The work is tiring but simple.

What I dislike about the company

I do not like how I, a college graduate, makes less than one of the supervisors who only has a high school diploma. He is not even a good leader. I do not like how I was passed up for a promotion even though I know the majority of the system and how it works.

  • Listen to long-time employees in regard to feedback on cultural changes.

What I like about the company

Friends that I will stay in touch with for the long term.

What I dislike about the company

heightened concern for stick holder profits over company values. Both are important, but the latter should not be sacrificed for the former.
