OK...

Order Picker (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at S.P. Richards part-time for more than a year

ProsPay was great. Raises used to be great but I heard that they cut back on the raises. They would cater once in a while.

ConsManagement cared too much about the quota and not enough about the workers. Over work you but will not give you overtime or help you out with emergencies.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees

No comradery

Order Filler (Former Employee)
Tukwila, WA

I worked at S.P. Richards part-time for less than a year

ProsGood for college students who need cash

Consvery very very quiet and absolutely no team work or any type of socializing what so ever. Usually jobs like these, most people won't last because its flat boring. Yes there are boring jobs, but fun co-workers balance out the lame work. This job does not have that, just drones who can't even speak English.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are going to have a positive workplace, maybe hire people who understand English.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great Place to work

Warehouse Picker (Former Employee)
Tukwila, WA

I worked at S.P. Richards part-time for more than a year

ProsI loved working there. I was straight out of highschool, going to college. The pay was pretty good starting out, and they gave you several raises within the first year. All of the upper management were very friend, there were several occasions where advancement opportunities arose and we were all encouraged to apply. I worked in the warehouse so it was pretty fast paced, and the first couple months I struggled to meet quota, but once you get used to the layout of the area it is all good. 401k was pretty good as well.

ConsThe only downside, and this isn't even that big of a deal, was that there were busy months and slow months, and obviously the workload and available hours was reflected upon the employees in those months.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Order Picker/Checker/Packer

Order Picker/Checker/Packer (Former Employee)
Coppell, TX

I worked at S.P. Richards full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood pay, great benefits, (medical, vision, dental, 401K, matched company contributions, paid holidays).

ConsManagement team is composed of very arrogant individuals who try to drag employees down to their feet simply because managers hold a higher position than the hourly paid employees. Supposedly there is an "open door" policy, which I've witnessed management reject any feedbacks or inputs employees had or any ideas on ways to make the facility a productive workplace (both, the employee and the company). Im short, the management is a group of arrogant, egotistic and selfish individuals who believe hey have total control of employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees suggestions, be more open minded. Or quit your position as a manager.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
