    Constant layoffs created anxious environment which made it difficult to stay focused and committed.

    Make a decision and stick to it- too many changes direction too far in process (marketing department)

    Pros

    Warehouse conditions were much more pleasant than I expected. My co-workers and managers were all very friendly and welcoming. There was a genuine feeling of teamwork.

    Cons

    Only a few hired as seasonal temps were able to stay on permanently. I would have loved to stay, but wasn't chosen. This particular D.C. only operates on 1st shift outside the holiday rush.

    Advice to Management

    Value your temps because they are working just as hard as the regular employees.
