    I have been working at Attends Healthcare Products as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good company to work for and the hours are flexible. They will teach you the whole operation if you are willing to learn it. it is a very interesting process as well

    Cons

    Management could be a little better in communicating what's going on within the company especially if it involves the employees as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just better communication overall. keep improving the company and making changes as far as technology goes.

    I worked at Attends Healthcare Products full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stability. If you are looking for an easy job that requires little skill and can pay the bills for a 2 bedroom apartment, this can do it.

    Cons

    If you're into the traditional structure of authority, then work here. Although, if you're a white male, you have little chance of promotion due to tax exemptions the company receives for hiring "multi-cultural" and "multi-gender employess". They have to meet quotas to not seem racist and they are too scared to hire skill over race or sex even though 65% of the country is white. Also, they are overly cautious about safety. Like wearing earplugs for 8 hours in environments proven to not effect your hearing. I grew up on personal responsibility. If I broke my leg doing something stupid, I'd take credit for it. They don't see it that way. I was let go for pulling 9 diaper buggies instead of 8. It wasn't a hazardous issue but an issue of doing what you're told instead of doing what you're confident and safe doing. If you want someone to think for you, take this job. If you want advancement.....don't. This company has been in and out of bankruptcy a few times. It's received bail outs from the government to keep it going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire ambitious and responsible people.

    I have been working at Attends Healthcare Products full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The salary is above average for the area, but still not consistent with industry standards. Co-workers are easy to get along with and the benfits are good.

    Cons

    It's about who you know and not what you know when it comes to getting promotated. The health insurance is crap and make sure you get a salary that you are comfortable with for the next 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the employees and find out how they really feel about the treatment we have received and how many are not happy and looking for work elsewhere.

    Pros

    The company has decent wages for the area and has a benefits package that includes health insurance, dental, and vision.

    Cons

    Shifts rotate every week, equipment doesn't work most of the time, management shows favoritism, management started when the company was owned by Proctor and Gamble and they haven't made any attempts to modernize the warehousing operation,
