Warehouse Employee

Inbound Receiver (Former Employee) Niles, IL

ProsThe pay and the benifits were great. There was lots of parking and the locker area was well kept.
There was a rec room and health and fitness area in the building.
They also offer 100% college reinbursment if you wish to continue your education in an area of the business in order to help the company needs.

ConsIt started off great in the beginning, but when the merges with the other warehouse begun it went south. When I was first employed there it was only two shifts from 7am to 3:30pm. And from 3:00pm to 11pm.
Now they split them into three shifts. 10am to 7pm, 6pm to 1am, and 9pm to 6am.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to be on top of the people that are your supervisors, managers and lead personel, because they are the one's who dictate the business climate there, and not the regular employees.
Because there has been issues of racism, sexism even classism. Due to the people at the top of the ladder at that company....

You " Management" have to get a handle on that in order to survive as a company. Since I've left I herd that management is catching many of the bad apples and are taking action against them. So I believe that's a good thing...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
