    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    D&H is a very friendly place on the sales floor but that's about it. There are daily perks like coffee days, lunch trainings and promotions. However, none of those things pay the bills. Co-workers are very nice and help step up the training. Management is a joke and has been the same for years. They do nothing about the gossip, vulgar language or outdated dirty environment. There is no room for advancement if you are a women. The women in advanced positions in the company is one or two and they have a limited scope. Everyone sees that if you're not in the "boys club" you are really not going anywhere.

    Pros

    The people that are there to work do a good job for the most part. Casual days are nice.

    Cons

    Hard to have motivation when so many of the managers and coworkers slack off for most of the day. The horrible pay makes it worse

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers based on their skills, not the years they have been with the company. Pay your employees more, you are a three billion dollar company

    Pros

    Very employee centric environment. They care about you, your opinion and your family health. They have a great ESOP program and encourage everyone to do their part to make it better. Fast paced but not overwhelming environment. Tons of opportunity to show what you are made of and make a difference. The owners are very much involved with everyone and even take the time to talk and listen to you. Great IT management team who listens and pushes everyone to work and play hard. They don't let the 20/80 rule fly, in other words they make sure that 80% of the people are doing 80% of the work not only 20% of the people doing 80% of the work like most places. They encourage you to "do the right thing" not the popular thing. The focus is on a one fight one team not everyone for themselves.

    Cons

    They are growing fast so change is everywhere. Not always a con but at times projects will just drop and focus is changed over night. More training would be great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More push for training but other than that IT Management is on the right path to really make a difference for the company and it's employees.

    Pros

    Pay is ok for younger people, but it is definitely less than other warehouses. Easy work. If you can do basic math, and lift items, you will be fine. There are a couple of different shifts you can work for. Nice people. Can pull extra hours during peak season. Employee discounts are pretty awesome. Sometimes give out prizes, not as much as they used to though.

    Cons

    Terrible management. HR supervisor is lazy, I don't even know the guys name, he rarely shows up. Majority of supervisors are rather good, but a few should not have a position like that. One will actually sit around for hours talking to women workers, and play favorites to them. Some leads, including the branch manager, have been known to lie and punish employees for things they haven't done. If you work third shift, you will never be recognized for your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rebuild. Let employees know ahead of time what hours they are working. We shouldn't have to find a supervisor to know when to leave, or if your keeping us late. Be strict on employees who are not working. top the favoritism. Stop lying.
