    Pros

    Nothing positive about this place.

    Cons

    Management is horrible the HR department is just as bad. If you look at the wrong person wrong your fire. If you voice your oppion your fire. They go threw close to 1000 employee a year. This place is full of liers and backstabers. You you have any pride go some place else. Benifit stink and insurance is $$$$

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the middle managment and start treating people like humans. After all Lincoln free us all white and black.

    Current Employee - Anonymous
    Current Employee - Anonymous

    Pros

    They will hire anyone anytime.

    Cons

    They create standards (amount of work you must do in a certain amount of time) that probably wouldnt hold up if challenged in court. They use deceiptful and manipulative tactics to gain as much productivity from employees as possible. You are required to do the standard amount of work (100%) and get paid incentively for exceeding that amount. If you put in time and become skilled, and constantly work as hard and fast as possible, you can make good money. The problem is that when you do this they will find ways to manipulate your performance and your payrate so that you are only making slightly more than those doing significantly less. The management/supervisors/engineers are unethical, sociopathic liars doing what they do best to keep a horribly designed operation alive only because it is too large and expensive to fail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve selector payrate. Improve training. Improve attitude toward new hires. Have respect and understanding for people doing all the work. Gain a group of solid, skilled workers. Injuries, turnover etc. will plummet.

    Former Employee - Warehouse Incentive Selector in Strinestown, PA

    Pros

    The only good reason to work there is tha fact that it was a job... that's it

    Cons

    The benefits were horrible... they don't care about there employees what so ever, and if the supervisors don't like you they will pick out little things you do turn them into big things and fire you. Or just flat out set you up... I hated getting up to go to work there every day but it was a job and I needed it so the things that has been done to me and the things that go on there I kept my mouth shut.

    Pros

    People open to share information, smaller company feel

    Cons

    Top management doesn't share direction with everyone, leaving employees to having no idea why certain measures are implemented

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For everybody to be able to contribute to the general direction, they first need to at least know what that direction is. Being quite a prominent employee I too often didn't know what the overall company goals and objectives are, did not even know what company strategy is. People are afraid to even voice contributions then, because they are unaware if they are in line with the strategy and objectives.

    Former Employee - Order Selector  in  York, PA
    Former Employee - Order Selector in York, PA

    Pros

    Money. But even then it's not worth what you go through. Most of your fellow low level employee's are good, fun to be around. With the exception of a few.

    Cons

    Your days can be long. You're not done til they tell you your done. And that's with 10hr days.
    Your schedule is designated totally by them. It's like working retail. "Didn't work tommorrow before? Look at the schedule now you're working".
    They employ on this "make your own paycheck" philosiphy. Which is you get X amount more an hour for every 5% over 100% efficency. Great. But 100% efficency with no errors, wrecks, or mistacked pallets is next to impossible, usually dangerous.
    Due to their "make your own paycheck" system, you have people taking speed, multiple energy shots in an hour much less a night. Alot of other selectors are unruly thug types you'd see on a street corner somewhere. You can end up threatened or at least called something not flattering, and usually they butt in front of you and pull product out of the same slot you need to, which slows you down.
    Once you're off your 8 weeks training. It's 100% efficency per week average or you're on your way out the door. Formal writeups. Doesn't matter if you're dog died or your wife left you, or you have the flu.
    If you have an workplace accident, and it was someone elses fault. Say they hit you with powered equipment. They make you say it was your fault at least partially to get them off of liability. Well not make. Definately tell you they think it was and you should think it was too.
    New trainee's are expected to follow safety rules and housekeeping while working @ 100% efficency, that employee's of multiple years don't and won't follow.
    People will steal your lunch out of the lunch room or at least go through it sometimes. Which btw the microwaves in the lunchroom are filthy. Try not to have to use them.
    Turnover is high. Out of a 200 person seasonal training maybe 4 people make it out of training and hired on full time. Which I think they do on purpose during the busy season to get cheap temporary labor.
    Overall it's a generally shitty place to work if you're an order selector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Obtain morals somewhere. Lower level needs to stop selling out so that they can make bonus' or keep their job. If something in unsafe have it investigated. Don't turn a blind eye.
