Pros

Good work environment and family atmosphere. Lots of long tenured employees, so change is difficult to manage at times. Upper management provides plenty of flexibility in work-life balance. Opportunities for advancement are plenty, given you are open to relocation.

Cons

Pay and benefits are defnitely not competetive with industry standards. This is especially true to internal promotions. Hours can be long, but not unusual for logistics. Technology and equipment definitely needs to be modernized and brought up to current standards.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In our quest to take care of hourly associates, senior leaders often forget about the management team that quietly labors away 60+ hours a week. They do so often with little or no tangible recognition, year after year. We are bleeding experienced talent at a steady rate and if nothing significant is done soon, the company will find it difficult to compete at the same level as our big box competitors.
