    Pros

    Easy Application, Quickly hired you after observation and fill the application, All of you will get hired no matter what if you have experience or not but important that you have a transportation to work from home. Flexible with schedule or you can arrive late but you must call advance one hour prior work start! Awesome!

    Cons

    Last minutes to informs you the schedule to start work, Manager will yelled at you daily, push you to rush & work hardest. Hell to work! Because you will have to pick up 0.01 lbs- 150lbs or more. Very strict with tardy and absent if you do. Possible to get termination or ask you resign.

    Advice to Management

    Manager is very friendly and work with you... They willing provide sign language for your accommodation!

    Pros

    It's great to show up to work and simply work until the job is done. Small but hard working team. Not having to deal with customer service. Paid work out!

    Cons

    Definitely hard work. Must be aware of surroundings and body movement to help prevent injuries. Pay could be a little better so the labor involved.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay would result in happier employees.

    Pros

    Good place to work. Treat employees well. Attempts can be made to make it feel personal but it can be too much

    Cons

    Not too much room for growth without deciding to move out of the area. If you decide to switch opcos expect a pay decrease for more work.

    Advice to Management

    Open new opportunities for people within Pittsburgh. Offer opportunities whereas people can work from home if necessary. Trust employees

    Pros

    The starting pay is good for the area. In the first year alone, an employee gets 4 pay raises.

    Cons

    There's no air conditioning in the warehouse so the summer months are hot. The winter months are cold.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard to find solutions to current production problems that exist. Try to decrease the employee turnover rate to help eliminate some of the issues that exist.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Training is provided through your career. The company is very competitive. You don't have to worry about losing your job due to outsourcing. The company grows year over year.

    Cons

    The work is extremely demanding, very physical. Conditions are subject to the weather. You have to schedule all your vacation at the beginning of the year. The peak season is demanding.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees the things they need to be successful. Put corporate jargon into normal terms that employees will understand. Invest in good leadership.
