    It's a challenging environment where you can work literally to the top.

    Pros

    Manual labor, internal hiring, diversification, the ability to work as much willing, great union relationship. I love that if you put in the hard work and dedication towards the company, you could one day be the CEO, or in another Chief Executive position.

    Cons

    Communication while in training. Maybe it would help in training to be more technologically advanced. I have some ideas on training, but I won't share here. It's great, no worries!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone is on the same page. Help those who want to help themselves grow within the company local and foreign.

    Pros

    A good way to get your foot in the door with the company and a great way to stay in shape over the holidays.

    Cons

    I have not been paid for the hours I worked. Some of the center staff and H.R. are rude and uncaring. Unsafe driver and conditions.

    Advice to Management

    I get the impression that the structure and behavior of management has been the same for a while and will not change anytime soon. So I have no advice.

    Pros

    Great part time job, received tuition reimbursement ($4000 a year), started off with 2 weeks of vacation, salary up to 27 1/2 hours a week then got paid by the hour after that (time and a half after 40 hours).

    Cons

    Production is everything there. GO, GO, GO. Be prepared to hustle the entire shift.

    Advice to Management

    Wish quality was looked at more instead of quantity. I mean, we were handling customer packages with the intent to handle with care. That was overlooked by the GO, GO, GO mentality that the company brought upon us.

    Pros

    good benefits, job security, fortune 50 company

    Cons

    no real career path, lack of opportunities, micro-managing culture

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the folks at the bottom rather than taking their ideas as going against the grain. Be open-minded or else the company will not move forward

  10. As said in many reviews, there is a military type atmosphere. All management cares about is numbers.

    Pros

    Stable company and stable job if you aren't a complete screw up...and even then you'll probably be around a while.

    Cons

    All they care about is numbers. Everyday they determine how good of a day it was based on how many packages were handled per person per hour. Rarely treated like a real person. Often lots of yelling.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a point to make your workers happy to be at work. You'd be surprised at what they can do if they want to be there. It could be a good job if not for the hostile atmosphere.
