Great working and learning environment.

ProsThe office had a great family vibe. Co-workers were willing to answer any questions you had that would help with your job performance. Great opportunities for growth with or within the business that the company dealt with.

ConsThere unfortunately had favoritism, when it came to promotions. The office where I worked has been closed, but the warehouse is relocating to Visalia, California.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep business decisions business and not personal.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
