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.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Reducing our workforce while increasing hours on those who are currently part-time in order to improve productivity at an overall lower cost as well as reducing our high turn-over rate.

What I like about the company

Have never had difficulty getting the days off for vacation that I've wanted. The actual work is not stressful and simple. Anyone looking for part time positions that balance well with a school schedule will love the flexible hours. We have company luncheons once a month and paid holidays for most major national holidays.

What I dislike about the company

There is a great reluctance to promote employees to full time positions with benefits. For part-time employees, the hours offered vary greatly and are sometimes reduced on short notice, which makes it difficult to count on a stable income. Managers are reluctant to fire low-performing employees and prefer pressuring them to quit through greatly reduced hours or intense pressure on workload levels.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Encourage cooperative atmosphere within the teams, cultivate in-house resources, provide clear strategic vision

What I like about the company

Worked with some really smart and interesting people during implementations, but high turnover rate offsets the environment. Leadership promotes a competitive between internal groups to ''get the best results'' that leads to a hostile work culture. Adopts new technology often but provides no training to FTE staff. Vendor outsourcing (offshore) responsible for new development with FTEs relegated to support efforts.

What I dislike about the company

Leadership sets the tone - leadership needs to promote a less competitive and more cooperative atmosphere. Encourage robust training of FTE resources, promote from within, cultivate the in-house staff instead of outsourcing talent and leaving FTE to custodial efforts.
