    Current Employee - Material Handler in Odessa, TX

    I have been working at Univar full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very competitive if not better. Managers aren't breathing down your neck all day. Promote within!!
    Available to work as much overtime as you want. Supply drinks water/Gatorade/coffee.

    Cons

    Warehouse could use some form of ventilation, it gets really hot in the summer and cold in the winters. They supply pants that are part of the uniform, i really don't like this i prefer to wear carpenter jeans. ( personal preference)

    Then I interviewed with someone in sales. THen I interviewed with the business develeopment manager. It is relatively easy if they are not expecting you to have done the exact same thing before.
    Expressing willingness to learn and how you can do it is key.
