    I was hoping for a good career move and now I just have to move.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsJob Security. Good employee discount.

    ConsToo much manditory OT with no end in sight. Managers are only concerned with end of month and end of quarter numbers and not the OT impact on emloyees. Micro managing at its best. HR issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOT should be dropped and Headcount needs to be increased. This would save the company money and increase their capacity. A plant manager that has experience in running a big facility needs to be brought in to turn around the KC location. The currrent management does not have the knowledge or experience to get this location to the next level. Listen to the employees sugestions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sinking ship

    Distribution Center Supervisor (Former Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsThere was no upside to the job. There was no structure, The goal for the day was always changed dureing the day.

    ConsThe company is bleeding out with temp labor. Their communication to mamgement staff is lacking. They have no foundation to build up the comapny. All their management staff was hired after they bought 3 companies and moved to a new building. They had no plan in place on how they wanted to complete a move let alone 3 new acquisitions. After 8 months into the move they still have 0 standard operating procedures and are basically winging it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo build your policies and procedures and manage your people through them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
