    I have been working at Americold Logistics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The details of the job as it was explained to me was exactly what the job entailed. The support and training I received was great. They give clear expectations of what they are looking for you to do and support that with onboard training and continued training. They make it easy to ask questions and help get you the correct information you are looking for.

    Cons

    Some processes could be improved upon, but at least they are always looking at better ways of doing things and your opinion matters.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Americold Logistics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I had a lot of fun there Sups on the floor are cool and the checks are on time. It's close to home. That's all I got.

    Cons

    The pay is not right for what is expected. The Union is very weak because of no participation by the members. A lot of butt kissers, back stabbers and job scared coworkers. Upper management is clueless and treat you like an inmate. It's cold but if you take a few Norco and Soma every couple hours it's doable. Smoking a bowl before work and at lunch makes it easier to put up with all the stupidshit. Got to keep a G-pen and wax handy to hit in the freezer for when they call OT. Favoritism is out of control.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of that lawn. You're in the Mohave Desert and we are in the worst drought on record. Save water and money then spread it out to the LTO's. Give the management and leads an IQ test and they don't break 100 can them. Develop a sense of humor!

    Pros

    Diverse experience and the opportunity to promote. Continue education is supported. Paid Time off accrues from date of hire and available for use. Americold believes in promoting from within.

    Cons

    Continuous improvement is not always backed up with the training and or the tools to support especially when promoting from within or promoting from and hourly associate to a salaried associate.

    Advice to Management

    Support training and recognize excellent merit and skill with other options than money for example additional paid time off
