Warehouse Lead (Former Employee)

ProsMeant some awesome people, made great friends, learned a lot about non-profit.

ConsHad some bad management, people not on the same page, pay not good.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to what your employees have to say, hire and train management to handle their employees without flying off the handle. Be willing to fire upper management when they don't follow the same rules as other's.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
