    Pros

    Decent compensation, multiple opportunities for advancement, relatively easy workload, good safety culture, great community presence in regards to volunteerism and outreach

    Listen to the people who carry out your directives, and the associates that make the warehouse successful

    Pros

    Great corporate team! Daily work is manageable. Given the opportunity to transfer to a different state.

    Cons

    Terrible managers and supervisors. They get paid top dollar but they do not know how to do their jobs. Low pay for a lot of work. Not a lot of recognition for your work. Employees are not treated fairly. Was promised things from the company that did not happen. Managers and Supervisors don't have the time to train the workers. Awful training program and a cap on incentive pay.

    Advice to Management

    Only "favorite" employees get promoted.
