Stay Away unless your a woman....

Forecasting (Former Employee)
Woodridge, IL

ProsEager to get you in and started. Salary was fair, benefits were okay. Some of the co-workers seem eager to help you.

ConsToo much of a "woman's world". In a department of 11, 6 were gone on maternity leave. They don't like outside opinions. I was told that in order to get a head, you would have to put in 12 hour days.. every day. Lunch was suppose to be taken at your desk while you work. Their forecasting is terrible. They don't worry about it, just to "put out the fires." Product is made in China so lead times are months away. They are way to SKU happy. You can have one planner managing 7K-9K SKU's. There is no flex time and their system is very old.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are more than one way to do things. Listen to people before you make your decisions. The "people in the trenches" know more than you know.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
