Pros

Salary was satisfactory, but not worth the headache.

Cons

After returning from maternity leave, I was laid off. This company functions without a heart and treats employees like factory workers.

Advice to Management

It functions with childlike management that don't appear to understand process. This company needs to get a few adults in the mix.

    Pros

    Decent pay, management was very understanding and helped you accomplish your goals. It is a very competitive atmosphere and the strong competitors will rise to the top and begin moving upwards. College graduates have mobility.

    Cons

    Constant work and tight schedules. You are only allotted two 15 minute paid breaks and one 30 minute unpaid break. Typical warehouse work for those who are suited to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a little more personal leave to employees, not necessarily during high volume hours, but more available time to request off during down times and low peak days.

  2. Great Experience

    Management was very supportive
    Ability to contribute to a team
    Fast paced - Bias for action!
    People treat you as a full time employee
    Everyone is very intelligent

    Very unstructured environment

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
    Create some opportunities for continued formal training (instead of just self-teaching)
    Create standardized processes across the board instead of constantly recreating the wheel
