  1.  

    Great place to learn. Seemed to be a little too much focus on meetings. Not enough focus on conducting business.

    I worked at Fred Beans full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Other than having had the opportunity to leave...NOTHING!

    Cons

    Where do I begin? The entire warehouse is full of unprofessionalism. The people in charge..(.and believe me, there seem to be 15 bosses at this place based on how these people treat you..)..are all imbeciles. Zero respect. Zero empathy. Zero reward for your hard work. In the six or so years I've spent here, I've never seen a raise over 30 cents. Some of my coworkers haven't gotten so much as a review! If you go to call out or use vacation time you'll be hounded for it. Understaffed, underpaid, under appreciated. It's an OSHA dream land too. The level of dust and filth is just ad disgusting as the attitudes of the management. I heard there is a dead bird or two in another zone that never got cleaned up. It's just amazing how bad it is. Sickening. The summers were unbearably hot, the winters were unbearably cold...we worked in complete darkness when the power went.. Nobody liked it there. Nobody was happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking about yourselves and start treating your employees with dignity. Your monthly bonuses should not be priority over hard workers' raises. Fred Beans prides himself as a "giver".... Why doesn't he give back to his employees by granting them the payment they deserve? The harder you work, the more work they give you... With no incentive whatsoever.

    I worked at Fred Beans full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have nothing good to say. This company continues to treat it's employers worse but it seems Fred only cares about the padding in his pockets.

    Cons

    Uncaring HR and Management. Expect maximum work for minimum pay, Also if profits fall, they'll just adjust your pay scale to make up for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show at least a sliver of appreciation for the people that keep the company moving.
