    Current Employee - Picker/Packer in Orem, UT

    I have been working at Emergency Essentials part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    My paychecks have not bounced. Somewhat flexible schedule I suppose. During the hiring process I gave the hours I could work and that's what I got. Other than that though, it hasn't been flexible. They claim we get a 20% discount on their items.

    Cons

    I dread everyday I have to go to work there. The starting pay is only $8/hour for part time workers. I never know if I'll be picking, packing, or loading and it can change at any time during the day. Most of the management of the warehouse are immature guys who have let a little bit of power get to their heads. One of whom actually pretended to shoot a group of us one by one and then himself in the head.

    You're supposed to clock out for breaks. Even a 15 minute break is unpaid time. I've never worked for a company that made you take unpaid breaks (only unpaid lunches). There is apparently a "Company Rule Book" but I have not been given one.

    They constantly change their metrics. They used to want 11 orders picked per hour or 12 order packed per hour. Then because so many pickers cherry-picked the shortest orders they changed it to lines. You were supposed to count the lines you did and divide it by 5 (the supposed average order size). Then they changed it to just lines. They wanted 55 lines per hour and quickly changed it to 60 lines per hour. It is very hard to get that many. You grab a handful of orders to pick and each line counts as one towards your 60 per hour. Several times I picked most items from an order only to get to one item that wasn't stocked. Then you have to go to a computer, type in the item number, and hope that it's somewhere in the warehouse (and not in their second warehouse a mile away). If it is, you print a page for a "drop" and then a forklift driver is supposed to retrieve the item and stock it. Often times it took hours for drops to get filled. They are busy with other things and don't always have time for drops. If you have to leave before the drop is made, you can't complete the order and put it on "the wall" so the items can be put back (they call it RTS). After successfully being able to fill an order, you count the lines and write it down on a paper. Then you're supposed to tell the picking manager your hourly totals. They can actually verify your numbers as long as the packers enter your initials into the computer properly.

    As for packing, the metric is also 60 lines per hour. You stand at a cramped station and make sure the pickers filled the orders correctly. Often times they left out an item, grabbed too many items, or grabbed the wrong item. In that case you either page the picker to come to packing so they can then go fix the order, or you just go fix it yourself. It is usually faster just to fix the order yourself. They have a very limited number of box sizes which makes packing some items tricky. Quite often the packages become very heavy too. We could pack them up to 70 pounds. Some packers avoid packing the "super pails" whenever possible, which are buckets of stuff that can weigh up to 60 pounds (like honey, wheat, beans, cereal, etc). Packing is definitely better than picking, though lately they have been threatening to write you up if you don't get 60 lines per hour. They've actually been threatening to write employees up more than usual lately for other things (like leaving boxes on the ground).

    The forklift drivers often drive around like maniacs. Sometimes they honk to let you know they are coming, sometimes they don't. Sometimes they honk incessantly which gets super annoying. When you get to work you have to find an available computer to clock in with. If the computer shows that the time is 8:00 and you clock in then, the time stamp will be 8:05 or 8:06. The difference between the actual time and the web-based time tracker keep getting further apart. In November the difference was 2-3 minutes. Now the difference is 5-6 minutes.

    I am very unhappy here. Getting a paycheck is nice, but it is also depressing because of how little it is for how many hours you've put in. You only get paid twice a month - on the 5th and 20th of each month. They sometimes hire temps through Premier Staffing Solutions. If for some reason you want to work here, try going through that agency so it will be easier to leave!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees better, change the warehouse management team, show some respect for your pickers/packers instead of threatening to write them up!
