  5. Even though my pallets moved/hour was improving, it was not up their hypothetical formula.

    Pros

    Safety conscious in theory, not in practice. Run at full-thottle to move required number of pallets. Compensation good, with a con. Benefits great, if you make it past probationary period. My damage ratio was practically zero, of which, I'm proud. I have seen forklift operators knock down a bay of 60 pallets, to be charged as damaged product. Of course, they're never seen again.

    Cons

    12 hour straight shifts. 4 days on, 4 days off. Every other month, because of their week ending schedule, your hours were split over 2 pay periods. Losing 8 hours overtime. That works out to alot of wages. Very upsetting. 2 10 minute breaks in a 12 hour shift. Gooble down a sandwich, and climb back onboard. Because everyone is individually graded, team concept was non-existant. 20 forklifts moving at full thottle. Many close calls.I began to give right of way, which affected my output, leading to my demise. I saw 20 faces come and go in the time I was there. They are constantly advertising for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that all loads are not the same. Products can be scattered throughout the 500,000 sq./ft. warehouse, effecting your pallets/hour ratio. The team leader is aware of this. These assigned loads make it impossible to maintain your pallet/hour ratio, which explains the high turn over rate.


  6. No potential for advancement. Very low pay.

    At times they have long work schedules and it's hard to get used to the schedule but after a while it's easy to adjust.

    Pros

    Maintenance job benefits holidays, vacation, 401k, medical and dental. Overall good place to work.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to acquire the benefits and it is at a batch plant, so there is a lot of up and down time.

    Pros

    Great equipment, over 25 new trucks! Older drivers are very knowledgable and are always willing to share what they know.

    Cons

    2 week rotational shifts. 2 weeks days, 2 weeks nights. Gets VERY hard on the circadian clock. Always tired.

    Advice to Management

    The Dispatchers are amazing people, but they are clearly overworked. There needs to be some kind of restructuring in the dispatch office.

    Pros

    The only reason to work here as a temp is for dire need of funds. The clean work environment is pretty nice.

    Cons

    Absolutley no leadership or management skills had by the line leads or the production supervisors. It's as if they think they're leading a pack of dogs in the iditarod rather than trying to organize and manage 20 people in a line.

    Advice to Management

    Let go most of the full time production staff. They have no skill except for putting down temp. workers.
