Pros

You have the opportunity to work with some really smart people. Everyone in finance was really freindly and created a great work environment.

Cons

Budget cuts every couple of years would interfere with department operations (including travel). It seems like one year they would spend like crazy only to tighten the belt too much the next.

Advice to Management

Take your employee benifits seriously. Even the littlest of things (like free soda) can make a huge difference in employee moral!

    Pros

    I personally like working with the associates and getting to know the very different cultures that they come from. The feeling of knowing that every piece of inventory you touch will eventually make it to a customers front door step is rewarding.

    Cons

    Working many mandatory overtime days due to poor planning by upper management gets to be a real strain leading up to another peak season.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training to the new starts and raise the bar from the Temp service and get employees that can live up to the high expectations in each process path.
