    Pros

    The work is not too hard or complicated from a mental standpoint.

    Cons

    Wages are not high for how rough the work can be on your body at times. Steady hours every week but overtime fluctuations make it hard to earn more than a very basic income.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of trying to sell employees on the low difficulties of the job while ignoring the toll work in the warehouse can have on the body and using that to justify low wages, you coud maybe be better served compensating employees for the effort they put into work that can wear them down physically.

    Pros

    You get your overtime and plenty of it when business is good. You want too explain that something is not working properly and they just rig it up too get by, then say you broke it.

    Cons

    Not giving raises every year, its like every 2 years. And they play favorites under their wings for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention too your hard workers.

    I worked at Vitacost full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    upgraded computers and phones, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    management didn't seem to know what they were doing, the available shifts kept changing dramatically with little notice or employee feedback, animosity between departments (specifically customer service and the warehouse), low end pay

    Advice to Management

    learn the systems better so that the employee can better understand how to use them, listen to employee feedback

    Pros

    good pay benifits depending on what tean that you are working on you might have a good day at work.

    unrealistic goals at times. Leadership really needs to do that be leaders and not like high school gossipers. this is work not a fun house

    Advice to Management

    Other then the obvious i really think that this company would be a better place if they put there employees at heart when they tend to make descions.
