Pros

I liked how close the company was. There were plenty of opportunities for overtime, and the pay rate was competitive. I loved the four day work week.

Cons

I wasn't fond of their order picking policies (You had to pick 100 locations per hour minimum with minimal mis-picks, or you were at risk for termination). Manditory overtime was tough sometimes, with some shifts ending at 3:00 AM but these were rare cases.

    Pros

    Great benefits including very low cost health insurance. Employee stock ownership plan was very interesting. The 401K match was excellent also.

    Cons

    Corporate HR was slow to get 401K into motion. Working hours were very long and were 6 day work week. Did not feel any sort of appreciation other than being at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to treat the employees better. Long work hours as well as 6 days per week is simply too much for people to deal with and still maintain any kind of work/life balance.

    Miserable time with an extended strike to spice it up.

    Pros

    1) Being able to buy products at discounted rates was nice.
    2) The pay and hours seemed comparable to the industry overall.

    Cons

    Unorganized work environment with little positive action from management. Drivers often held to blame for many things beyond their control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide that the employees that work there are primary tools by which profits are made and treat them accordingly. The hands off approach and attitude of misdirection toward customer service will foster eventual competition for the quasi-monopoly they currently enjoy.
