Pros

Excellent working conditions. Floor management is easy to follow and get along with. Honestly make you feel like you are appreciated.

Cons

Low pay and an undue long wait for benefits and raises leaves a revolving door on the distribution center. Quality employees don't stick around long, moving on to better paying jobs almost immediately, leaving only the dregs of the employable to hire on and stay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring the starting pay scale up to the level of the other distribution centers in the area. Higher pay means that quality employees will hire in and stay with the company, gaining experience and loyalty.

    I worked at Pearson full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company has a strong business model and you won't have to worry about being out of a job so long as you can meet expectations. The work life balance is great, I've never been pressured to work over time or on weekends. The salaries are fair and competitive and there are opportunities to move up or around within the company.

    Cons

    Managers sit in nice offices while non managers get crammed into uncomfortable "agile pods" which nobody likes. There is no real career development training for non managers. Working from home is basically not allowed.

    Former Employee - Human Resources Intern At Distribution Center in Lebanon, IN

    I worked at Pearson as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Good salary and additional pay for excellent attendance. Good work/life balance. Never had to do any work after clocked out.

    Cons

    May get boring in the long run and repetitive. Lot of interaction with applicants leading to wide ranges of experiences, good and bad ones. Duties may escalate if superior leaves, duties that were not originally planned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps try to reward employees better so as to avoid such high turnover and discontent with salary. Allow interns to use facilities. Add programs to create bonds and strengthen employee morale and bonding
