    I have been working at Millard Refrigerated Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of hours if you want them
    I can listen to music while I work
    Room to move up in the company
    Easy job compared to other warehouse jobs
    Pays slightly more than other warehouse jobs
    Being in the cold was nice when it was hot in the summer

    Cons

    There were some bad seeds among the employees. Since they hire people through agency they just about hire anybody which leads to some terrible employees. Luckily the supervisors do notice and they get fired within a few weeks.
    When theirs overtime we get sent to the back of the warehouse to separate bottles. There is no supervision so EVERYBODY takes their godamn time to get as many hours as possible. Since I'd rather go home I would be the only one to try to get it done as soon as possible.
    I got laid off when worked slowed down, even though there were some people that were working there less time, it was obvious that the new girl didn't get fired because the supervisor was trying to get laid.

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Usually host a free picnic once a month for employees. Easy advancement as long as you follow the rules.

    Cons

    Very challenging and difficult job due to the fast pace. Very physically demanding by lifting a couple thousand cases per shift weighing up to 100+ lbs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more military friendly. Rules don't seem to be set and stone so they can be swung either way when needed to benefit the company

    Pros

    Some of the employees and upper management are very helpful, benefits are ok along with being paid weekly.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites and the respect barrier is very unequal, the training is not adequate enough and can be revised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to whats going on behind the scenes and stop scratching the service of things.

    Pros

    Great Respect for All Environment, Team Members get recognized for their work, opportunity for advancement. Management team is easy to talk to and the General Manager is one of the best that i have had the pleasure of working for. If I could give him 6 stars I would. He is out on the floor on the forklift and pallet jacks loading and unloading. Knows our team by name. Everyone is always willing to help each other out, great environment!

    Cons

    No cons at this location, everyone is great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the respect for all environment, and acknowlegements. All TM appreciate it!

    Pros

    I was hired on right out of college for a Warehouse Supervisor role. I've learned a ton about management and the supply chain industry as a whole - customer service, storage, transportation, efficiencies. The guys at the warehouse have shown me the ropes and helped me get off the ground. Millard promotes heavily from within and several of my buddies have moved up. We are always picking up new customers so it seems like new positions open up regularly. I would recommend this to new grads who have an interest in supply chain. The training program is on the job and hands on. Everything I've learned in this job can apply to other opportunities in the industry.

    Cons

    This isn't for everyone, its hard work in a warehouse. You have to earn the respect of other team members - nobody gives you anything. Everyone works hard and as the Supervisor you have to set the example. You have to be open to relocating to any of the facilities within the system so don't expect to be close to home. If you don't feel comfortable managing people, you will hate this job. It takes time. The more experience I've gotten, the easier it has become to lead the team. It can get really busy at times, and you have to be able to role with the speed. This isn't a desk job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to host Team Member Appreciation Events for the employees. It is a great opportunity for team members to interact with members of other departments as well as Senior Management. Respect for all campaign has been a great asset to the company and I would love to see additional Team Member Appreciation Events in the future.
