I worked at Kent Landsberg full-time (Less than a year)
The benefits are pretty decent and the pay is ok. The company is very safety oriented and really focuses on safety.
Long hours. 12-14 hour days and a lot of weekends. The staff are not team players and everyone is working against each other. A lot of turnover. It's tough to be a manager when you are constantly thin on people and you have to jump in as a dock worker on a daily basis.
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kent Landsberg (Houston, TX) in June 2011.
I was asked to come in to meet with the head of customer service at that time was Sylvia Robles. She was very nice and asked me my background and i filled her in on it then i gave her all my paper work and job application they ask me to fill out. i was hired on as a temp and with in three months was full time.
When i was working in the warehouse office i was looking for another job and found one to pay me over what i was making at Kent Landsberg. When i gave my 2 week notice they asked me how much to stay and i told them to match the other company and they did. However i had to get it in writing and still had to fight tooth and nail to get what was promised me.
