Former Employee - Warehouse Worker in Columbia, MO
Former Employee - Warehouse Worker in Columbia, MO

I worked at MidwayUSA (less than an year)

Pros

Great pay.
Random overtime requirements provide opportunity for more income.
Good opportunities to advance to manager position.
Some internship opportunities in Information Technology.
No smoking indoors, must be 20 ft away from building to smoke.

Cons

Extremely strict attendance policy, zero tolerance.
Employees are fired with no warning due in part to their failure to communicate properly.
Ridiculous amount of managers.
Almost all the managers do not show any respect for warehouse employees. Promotes a hostile work environment, but that's nothing new.
Orientation and company presentation upon first hire is very long- 3 days, 3+ hours per day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you're going to make a change to a new hire's work schedule, do it in writing. You make the effort to provide the work schedule already in writing, it's natural to assume any change will likewise be in writing. To ensure it's understood and there's no conflicts with another job they might have.

    Current Employee - Salaried Employee in Columbia, MO
    Current Employee - Salaried Employee in Columbia, MO

    I have been working at MidwayUSA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Quality and customers are #1. Everyone is always striving to make things better than they are and make sure things are sustainable. Strongth growth provides a stable place to work and there are lots of opportunities to advance. Plus, their are some really smart people on staff and the pay is good.

    Cons

    Sometimes the need for everything to be a process stunts creativity. Also, there is too much planned on the strategic plan each year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much control is held at the highest levels. Let people make mistakes and forgive easily. Without making mistakes, people can't learn.
