    Pros

    There was freedom to come and go as you please. That's about it.

    Cons

    You are set up for failure at this place. There is a huge lack of training. The Employee College is a joke! You don't get anywhere with hard work and honesty. The office culture is untrustworthy. Good people get fired. I have seen people at work drunk and high working on railcars and they somehow get to keep their job. The railcar crews get to do whatever they want and still keep a job! They can be a no call no show for two or three days and still keep a job! They can be late every day and walk off of the job and still keep a job! You are not paid what you are worth unless you are in an upper management position. Trust no one. Everyone has a motive. Favoritism is rampant throughout the company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of convincing yourselves that you have all of the answers, take some time to figure out what the true problem is within your operations. Stop coddling and dealing with grown men who act like babies and find hard working men who want to work and prove themselves as a viable resource to the Brand and the company. Stop being cheap and give your employees the quality of life they deserve.

    I worked at Andersons part-time

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, a variety from all walks of life and different life stages. Supervisor was understanding of my class schedule and accommodated requests for time off. Company has many areas to branch out in, other than retail. Starting hourly salary was decent.

    Cons

    It would take a long time to work your way up, if you plan on staying with the company. Little positive recognition for job well done.

    Pros

    This job is a great opportunity. Great people and the best environment. They are very loyal to their employees and flexible hours make it perfect for students.

    Cons

    It is very hard to move up. Many people have been there for a long time. Pay is low for the most part but it fits the job. Some people (few but some) don't work at all and management gives them far to many chances

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of those who want nothing to do with working hard and let those who shine take Their place. You will reduce your shrink and all around company moral will improve

    Pros

    The people there are great. It can feel like one big family. I generally got along with everyone, with the exception of very few people.

    Cons

    Everyone scrambling to find ways to make/save money result in dumb decisions being made. They seem to just go out in a bunch of different directions to see if they can find something that works. Sometimes they inadvertently make it harder on the employees in the process.

    Pros

    Good office envirnoment and nice people to work with. They are pretty flexible with scheduling. They have several different divisions with different types of jobs so there is a good variety of work.

    Cons

    Older systems that do not communicate. In the process of upgrading but will be a couple year process. Not very good with career development and sucession planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more at develping your current people by giving them work that is value adding to the comapny and not just busy work.
