    Pros

    we have early morning shift but its part time work the pay is great and you even get to travel the atmosphere is wonderful and the people and the bosses are like family

    Cons

    the only thing that I can say here is that you have to learn how to use your machine you're counting machine but once you get a hang of it it's smooth sailing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great for Opportunities!

    Pros

    In the Santa Fe Springs office, I really appreciate my Area Manager & Crew Managers. I like the wide age range of employees it has. It's a great opportunity for those just starting out in the workforce and for those who are near or already retired, but wish to continue working.

    Cons

    If you are looking for full-time employment at the entry level, this is not the case. Working very early mornings and working very late evenings even into the next morning is the norm in this line of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the 'espirit de corp' with your all of your leadership managers.

    Pros

    This is not at all a Monday- Friday 9-5 job. Shifts are mostly very early mornings and late nights. Shifts range anywhere from 2 hours to 9 hours. The job is easy and scheduling in flexible. Reviews and possible pay increases every 6 months.

    Cons

    Most positions are part-time and hours vary greatly each season. Pay is low for the amount of driving that is required for in town jobs. No PTO and limited medical benefits offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the positive reinforcement and development of current associates.

    Pros

    Good time spent on the road if you like to travel. Employees were enthusiastic and friendly. Pay was decent for a summer job and it got me out of the house.

    Cons

    It was actually really hard work for inventory. I remember the first week my knees were shot after the week of inventory at Wal-Marts.
