Went downhill quickly

Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee)
Harrisburg, PA

ProsBenefits are extremely cheap and comprehensive, tons of PTO and sick time

ConsRefuses to promote to management from within, does not back up employees on customer complaints, clueless upper management

Advice to Senior ManagementConsistently changing policies and programs is not a way to keep employees happy and productive. Stick with what made the company profitable as opposed to trying to emulate other companies

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
