    I have been working at Silver Star Brands

    Pros

    Easy to get a job there

    Cons

    Inhuman demands on productivity in comparison to wages, no real attention to quality in relation to the expectations of speed, no sense of belonging -- you have no place to "settle" -- you can leave your station and come back to someone else working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as you would want to be treated. I am basically anti-union because I've felt, over the years, that unions are unnecessary in this day and age. The way you treat your employees proved me wrong. One minute to pack boxes, check the orders for accuracy, label, and place on a conveyor -- are you kidding me??? Outrageous.

    I worked at Silver Star Brands

    Pros

    Casual work environment. Fair PTO time. Average pay scale.

    Cons

    Difficult to move upward in career, middle management cautious in trusting advice of people doing the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be better risk takers. Adopt the philosophy that people are what make the company successful. Instead of laying off exceptional work force, find opportunities for them to stay in other positions. Investigate how 4Imprint does it.
