Coworkers are like family

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee)
Aurora, IL

I worked at LTD Commodities part-time for less than a year

ProsGreat job if you like overtime, coworkers are all really nice and were all like family to me.

ConsPerks aren't so great, if you can even say they exist. Leadership in some areas are horrible, my neighbor quit because he was accused of things he didn't do and wasn't apologized to.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to really find out what kind of supervisors you guys have

Good people, entry level job.

the worst place in the world

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at LTD Commodities full-time for more than 5 years

Prosset hours, insurance benefits, monthly treats, overtime if needed, employee discounts at store, not much more to say about a positive attitude for this company

Conseveryone looks out for themselves, policies given on an as to need to know basis, if you are not liked from the beginning then you are not liked your whole career with this company, rules are not set in stone

Advice to Senior Managementtreat your employees with respect and they will treat you the same

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
