    Great job, horrible company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat coworkers, fantastic benefits, best boss ever. Rewarding job that made me push to be my best. Parking garage and summer hours were great perks.

    ConsDistribution Executives were dishonest with employees, saw their demise ahead and planned well for it by separating distribution and media. When the time came to shutter distribution, there was no notice, no severance, an immediate stop to health benefits, and no recourse due to immediate bankruptcy filing. Devastated thousands of families, horrific. The few left under the separate regime now known as TEN should be looking for another job because their jobs are next. Corporate offices are in California, there soon will be no need for Bonita Springs employees. It was a good thing, gone terribly, terribly bad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo management exists to give advice to. They are comfortable financially, not busy submitting resumes and writing cover letters everyday as the rest of us are. They are enjoying their retirement in the sun, playing golf and boating on the Gulf of Mexico, perhaps enjoying their vacation homes up North, without giving a second thought to the families they have devastated. Oh, and they aren't paying for, or moving out of their 4 floors of rented space to make room for Hertz to move in either, so they are ruining the landlord, too. Despicable.

    Sad to see it go

    Merchandiser (Former Employee)
    Wyandotte, MI

    ProsThe work is really easy, especially if you have done something similar. I am told some people "don't get it" and don't last long, but I find that hard to believe! My schedule was very flexible, big stores you have an hour window to go there after the delivery but smaller stores are even more flexible than that. My boss was pretty nice but would still tell you straight if you did something she didn't like which is helpful because she also didn't make a big deal out of everything, You have get a lot of emails which can be annoying, several a day, I wish it were just once a week reminders. Also I got to basically work by myself.

    ConsThe pay was not super great. Hours are low. Everyone was part time. No benefits at all. You can have several stores, all with different managers, all with a different way they want things done. They didn't pay for gas. Paid for drive time but not gas. Also I worked Friday May 30th and even went home to upload and email some papers before going to my other job so my boss wouldn't be worried about me getting it done, and then she called me and told me she had bad news we are all out of a job. No notice, no severance. Nothing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop going bankrupt.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Went out of business

    Magazine Merchandiser (Current Employee)

    ConsDid not pay mileage for a job that required a lot of driving.
    Very bad timesheet software.
    The company had to shut down the magazine distribution section.

    Worst job ever hands down.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA paycheck? Even that is not a pro when there are no raises and you institute pay cuts.

    ConsNo raises, only layoffs and pay cuts. Having to be available 24/7 by e- mail.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo bad you hired so many empty suits at a 6 figure salary while laying off underpaid workers who actually work. Such a shock you went bankrupt (again).
